    I have a few ideas for a fish extender.. but I think it is too wide..
    I see from photos it needs to be about 8 to 10 inches wide maybe .. otherwise it might be in the way...????
    Got the gifts all done!

    I think it is 8 inches. Basically, there is a little wall space that is at maybe a 45 degree angle coming out from your stateroom door. It needs to fit there otherwise it will stick out into the hallway and people will bump it as they walk past. Don't want to poke anyone's eye out. :)

    I was researching width several hours last night to answer the same question. Best I could find was don't go wider than 8". There also may be a difference in the width available on the older ships and the newer ones. I saw some comments that the Fantasy and Dream are slightly narrower in that area, but I couldn't find a confirmation one way or the other, let alone a final width.

    We're making ours 8" wide, and I'm going to hope for the best.

    Is it unusual for two adults to participate if they are sailing without children? I think this sounds like so much fun, but my boyfriend and I don't have kids.. we just are big kids!:goodvibes

    On my upcoming cruise more than half the FE participants are traveling without children.

    I am sure you will fit right in.

    Not a holiday one, but....

    I decided to make myself another, smaller FE for my solo cruise this December. It seemed silly to have a 4 pocket FE for just me and, since I am going alone, I could make this one a little more girly. I took inspiration from doombuggygrl74 (her post here) because I loved how girly the pink and leopard print was!

    The Mickey head is from the DISigns board and after I printed it on iron-on transfer paper and put it on the FE, I went back with some adhesive backed rhinestones and went over the tiara part so it really sparkles. :goodvibes

    Just finished up my DIY FE project for our upcoming Fantasy cruise Dec 8th :santa: It was a pretty easy project with crafts gathered from Hobby Lobby and Joanns and cost less than $20 to do ~so excited to participate in our 1st FE~!!!

    Here is the FE we made for our February cruise. We just have to get names monogrammed above the pockets. Probably cost less than ten dollars. We have one more to make - we are in two rooms.

    I am currently working on four different FE's, one for each of our family's staterooms. Each one has their own theme: Mickey and Minnie, Star Wars, Pirates, and Cars. When I get them down I will post pictlulres of them.
