I always forget that most people fly to the ports, since we live in Florida we can drive to all of the ports within 3-4 hours. But Port Canavaral is the closet to us. I will take us about 2 hours from our door, to cruise parking then onto the terminal.

I am starting to check things off my list, and starting to prepare my new list for our 8 day cruise(me and husband - no kids) in August.

I cannot imagine living in Alaska, it was 80 degrees here today.

We've been having a weird winter--the past 2-3 weeks have been in the upper 20s and lower 30s with rain. We're over a foot short on snow fall this year, so I'm pretty bummed.

FE gifts have been purchased and delievered, so now it's time to start planning!

We're cruising three times this year so I just purchased a really large quantity, and if I need more fit our Halloween cruise I can buy more. In the past we've averaged about 15 rooms per cruise, with the exceptions being Dream MV, west coast repo, and inaugural Galveston.

Oh, it seems you have this down to a science. So let me ask you something- do you identify your FE gift, so the receivers know who it's from?

15 rooms seems very manageable, I have read where some were like 100+ rooms.

I invited some more cruisers from another thread on another board to join this one. That thread is starting to pick up. I was actually on that one first.

Nope...no science really just guesstimating! We have done it both ways-identifying and not. I think it's nice to know who gives you what do that you can thank them.

Thanks for inviting more cruisers to the thread! The more the definite merrier, and if you want to start a facebook page go for it. What boards are they from?

As for the 100+ rooms, the more special the cruise (out of the ordinary cruises) the more diaboarders we tend to have, like the MVs, repos, transatlantics, etc
