    I thought all items brought for signature needed to be flat?

    Can someone verify this?

    Hence I don't think the ornament idea would work.

    Is there a limit on number of items per stateroom that they will sign? I'm traveling with 4 kids and would love a pillowcase for each and a signed photo mat for myself but that seems like a LOT to ask???

    I've seen people do the blank vinylmation Mickeys. Those aren't flat.

    They ask for only two items per stateroom but will go more if there are more children in the cabin. I

    2 per stateroom is usually the limit.

    As PP noted the limit is generally 2 per stateroom. Although I have read that they will do 3, if there are 3 kids in one room. Hopefully, they will extend the limit to 4 for you. Maybe asking for 5 things would be a little too much?

    If I needed 5 because of 5 children, I would get on my cruise meet thread and find out if any of my disfriends would be willing to put some of my requests on their stateroom and then arrange to pick up the signed items on the last night.

    There may be some travellers on your cruise who do not wish to have things of their own signed. It's worth a try.

    Yes, my concern exactly. We're actually in two rooms so its 2 pillowcases per room technically so we're ok there. As for the mat, perhaps I'll ask nicely then but certainly will understand if that's not possible. Guess I'll just have to sail again to get the mat signed. Too bad!! ;)

    With 2 rooms, I'd say you'll have a decent chance of getting everything signed.

    Although, another cruise sound pretty good to me!;)

    You can join a group for your sail date and you exchange gifts during your cruise. You just hang a holder outside your room and people in your group will leave goodies for you, and you do the same for them.

    FE's are Fish Extenders. I'd go into detail but there are a few thousand threads explaining them already. Here's one:

    Those flavors were on the ship as well. Maybe that is new?
