Hi all! It looks like my family and I will be joining you all on this cruise. We were originally booked on the October 12th version, but something came up with my husband's work and we had to move it. Unfortunately now we will have to take our son out of school to cruise, but you only live once! We are myself, my husband, our son (who will be 6 when we cruise), my mom, and my dad. We would all love to participate in the FE. This is our third cruise. We did a 5-night on the Magic to the Bahamas last May and then a 7-night on the Wonder to Alaska last September. My parents were with us on the Magic, but it was just the three of us in Alaska (which was AWESOME!). I'm happy to be joining all of you and hoping nothing else comes up and we get to stay on this cruise.

Oh we are from Aurora, CO and my folks live in Deerfield Bch, FL!

how do i join the facebook group? i went to the page and clicked "join" but nothing happened. ?? i'm not all that great with navigating facebook.

zippyzo, i haven't been on here for a while, so i'm just wondering... do you have a spreadsheet or something of the sort set up yet where we can see in a list or chart all the families and individual participants in the FE? Thanks for organizing! I couldn't handle that job, plus, i have no idea how to make a spreadsheet!

Welcome to the group! Our son will also be 6 when we cruise in September. It would be fun to get them together. Thankfully we won't have to pull our son of out school for the cruise though. We live in a strange district where the kids go to school for 6 weeks and then get 1 week off.

Our party includes myself, DH, DS and MIL. Can't wait for September!!

I do have a spreadsheet of the families so far. Do people want a copy so they can start planning. I was going to send it out nearer the cruise but will go with what other suggest. I just hope I do an ok job of sorting out the FE. When do people want the cut off date to be- suggestions welcome.

When you join the Facebook group it has to be approved by the person who set the group up. Have you been accepted yet?

I'm not sure if you know how to do this... (I dont), but last year the FE coordinator put a link in his signature line to a google document spreadsheet. We could just link to it at any time to see the updates. it was quite convenient. i know personally, i'd like to know, even this early on, the number of participants and ages of kids particularly, so i can keep my eyes open for goodies and start making things now. I don't want to pressure you though, so whatever works for you is fine. It's just a suggestion. I'm sure whatever you do will be fine. we all appreciate you coordinating!! last year our cut off was a month prior. we called it a "soft deadline", allowing for late entry under the understanding that some people may be unable to include them at that late date. They would participate with those who could accommodate them. It worked well. and fortunately we all were able to accommodate all the late-comers.

I would like some input though, as far as what everyone has in mind in terms of gifting. meaning... one delivery per cabin or per person or per day or once per cruise??? I know that it doesnt have to be set in stone and some people will do different things, i was just hoping to get an idea of what others had in mind. On our last cruise, i had planned on gifting to every person every day. Then a couple weeks prior, our organizer decided to assign everyone 1 specific day to deliver. i really wished that had been decided WAY in advance!! It would've saved me alot of work and alot of money!!

I will see what i can figure out but will probably have a play around at the weekend. I too was also think a cut off date at the begninning of august so people had plenty of time to sort gifts etc out - may be the 12th August - what do other think???

On our last trip you could deliever your gifts whenever you wanted, we gave the children invidual gifts but the adults shared which is similar to what we were planning for this cruise. I had never even thought of all having a particular day etc. I quite liked coming back to the room and finding gifts through out the cruise so again what do others like to do.

I have only ever taken part in one FE before any help / ideas are appreciated
