My family (me, DH, DS7, & DS11) and I have finally decided to sail on this cruise, was considering changing to next year but the prices are so much higher. I thought I was paying a premium to cruise at Thanksgiving, but paled in comparison to prices for next year so we are PIF now and counting down to sail. Looking forward to joining the FE and meeting everyone.

Does anyone know if they will be having the gingerbread workshop or any other special events on board for this sailing? We did the Wonder last Thanksgiving and loved that class.

Fish Extender Group!!!

Here is the link to the current Fish Extender groups, in case someone has lost it. When we first organized this group (back in May 2013) several members expressed concern that they didn't want the groups to be "too big" so we formed 2 groups and have now added a 3rd. Currently we have 17 cabins in Group A, 18 cabins in Group B, & 6 (maybe 7) cabins in Group C. Since I don't want to be the "FE Nazi" I need y'all's input, especially since some (myself included) have already started crafting our gifts. Here are the options as I see them, but please feel free to add suggestions I may not have noticed.

1. Keep the groups as they are. Add new members to group C and hope it grows to a larger size.
2. Take 3-4 cabins from Groups A & B and move them to Group C-making all groups around 13-14 cabins. Add new members to each group on a rotational basis.
3. Add cabins from Group C to Groups A & B-making each group around 20-21 cabins. (No idea what to do with new members in this case.)

Please comment & let me know your preference. I will try very hard to take everyone's opinions into account.

I know it's a long time off, but I created a Facebook group for us. Here's the link:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/529905517044759/

This will be another way for us to chat about our plans and organize the fish extender & meet up when the time comes. Just click join group and tell me your DIS name in the message & I will add you!
I just sent a FB request...DIS name is Pigletsmomma, my initials on FB are SRS for confirmation.

Hi everyone! Sorry I've been MIA for a while - busy, busy summer. We went to WDW for a week as soon as school was out - home for 1.5 weeks and then my parents, son & I went to Italy for 2 weeks. Around all that, I've been trying to keep up at work & my husband has been trying to get a bunch of work done on our house. (Repainted the outside, built a gazebo, making progress on the attic we are finishing, etc) I'm afraid I haven't been by here in a couple of months

I'll need to go back several pages to read and catch up. I just saw the question about the FE groups. My 2 cents would be to go with option C unless a whole bunch of people suddenly sign up now that we're hitting PIF time... As long as the groups stay under 25 that feels reasonable to me. (Of course I may be biased since the Panama transit we did in 2008 had 179 cabins broken into only 2 groups - ANYTHING is better than that! )

Fish Extender Groups UPDATE

OK, dear fish extender people, I think I have this done as most requested. I've combined all 3 groups into 2 groups of 20. The groups are now CLOSED. Even if we lose members from the lists, I'm not adding anyone new at this point.

There are a few people who asked to join after we had reached the 20 per group mark. If that's you, please consider volunteering to organize a "latecomers" FE group.

Here is a link to the final group list. If there is any information missing for your family, it is highlighted in yellow. GTY cabins, please let me know as soon as you find out your cabin number. I would like to do a map for each group before we leave.

Thank you all for your input, patience, & understanding as I tried to find solutions that would make most everyone happy. Now on to the countdown!!!

If there is another group started can someone please direct me to it. I already have gifts. Just started a job early this year and went from a homemaker to working 50 hours a week and I'm so behind in life. Thanks.

Did you make it on the FE List? since I can't tell your real name on this post, I can't check. I am organizing Group C as we speak. Feel free to contact me
