Ah, I thought you meant your DH took two suitcases just for himself. We are packing three and a half suitcases for this trip (the half is just a smaller version of the other three larger ones). Our FE gifts are lightweight and don't take up more than the size of a larger shoebox - we plan our FE gifts based on how much room we'll have to take them - when we are driving to Port Canaveral and it doesn't matter, there are different things than when we are flying and have weight restrictions or have to pay for bags. It's nice to not have to pay for bags going to Europe - we went on our Alaska trip with just two suitcases. Of course we always do laundry so we can pack less. And I will say that one part of our FE gifts for Alaska we actually picked up in Vancouver rather than flying it over.
That's smart...we always go overboard on FE...I just never know what to do and don't want to look like the "cheap gift"...it's just easier this time to stay out of it....but would definitely be interested in seeing what you did and get ...it's great to see it
I plan to mail my FEs over along with some dry goods.
Where are you mailing your package too
I am mailing one to where we are staying prior to the cruise and one box (limited to 20 lbs) to the Ship's docking area.
Would you like the details?
Just let me know and I will send you the information.
I was wondering if you could bring wine on board? Wife and I would like to get some nice wine in Italy and other countries. Just wondering if you could bring any wine you buy on shore excursions back on board to drink?
This is a message for Disname 'Mineu'!!!
I have sent a PM without response so I'm hoping that this reaches Anne and family.
You all are currently listed as 'maybe' for the FE exchange. We need to know ASAP if this is a 'yes' or 'no'. The FE Exchange listing 'closed' yesterday (April 5) so if we don't hear from you quickly, I'm afraid we'll have to assume it is a 'no'.
I hope to hear from you all!!! We don't want you to miss out on the FE exchange!
We bought wine and brought it back on. It was hard to bring it back to the US, because we didn't want it to break.
So, we are planning to bring an empty wine box with the foam.
I also bought olive oil and limoncello and they all survived.
If you plan to open the bottle of wine for dinner at your MDR, there's a corkage fee and they can save it for the following night for you and your family. Just remind them or they will throw it out.
Here are the final numbers: (this assumes that Mineu is a 'yes' - 2 adults and 2 children under 18)
total number of adults: 112
total number of children under 18: 53
total number of staterooms: 55 (NOTE: 6 of these are families that listed 2 staterooms so if you do one 'family' FE gift, the total is 49)
I will be re-organizing the list by Deck and inserting any GTY room assignments as I hear from folks. The final list will be made available no later than June 1. Currently I have 5 GTY staterooms listed. Also...if folks get upgraded at the port, perhaps that information can be shared at the Meet.
This poll will timeout on April 13!http://http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=3092197
P.S. I hope this works and that I didn't mess up...this is the first poll I've created on this Board.
Thanks so much for letting me know it works!
Thanks so much for organizing the fe! Sue
Never been involved in the FE, but there certainly seems to be a lot of interest. What are the guidelines? When are the surprises left in the FEs?
Thank you for putting this list out. My sincere apologies if I 'm reading them incorrectly, but would it be possible to get some clarification on a few lines just to be sure? We want to verify an accurate count for everyone so we don't leave anyone out.
Could the following parties please clarify their FE numbers?
pawhitejr: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 0 children, but there appear to be 3 children listed in the names columns in addition to the 2 adults. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (2, 5, other?)?
finkerbell: There are 2 listings on the spreadsheet under the "finkerbell" disname, and although the cabins are different, the names appear the same. Cabin 7563 shows 3 adults, and Cabin 7043 shows 4 adults (3 with the same names as 7563 plus one additional name). Could you clarify the actual number of travelers (3, 4, 7, other?) and cabin(s) for the FE please?
MEB51: The numbers columns show 3 adults and 0 children, but there appear to be 5 total people listed in the names columns. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (3, 5, other?)?
Kayancam: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 5 children, but there appear to be only 6 total people listed (1 and 5) in the names columns. Maybe there just wasn't enough room. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (6, 7, other?)?
justthat: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 4 children, but there appear to be only 5 total people listed (2 and 3) in the names columns. Maybe there just wasn't enough room. Could you clarify your total for the FE please (5, 6, other?)?
htmlkid: The numbers columns show 2 adults and 1 child, but there is no 3rd traveller listed in the names column. We don't need specific names, but could you please clarify how many travellers for the FE (2, 3, other?)?
Thank you so much!
We have handheld digital luggage scales too. From REI. Accurate and worth it's weight in gold. I carry it in my carry on and had many questions asked of it in India!!! They had no idea what it was.
Mindy, we're not participating due to space restrictions. Between two cruises and a month away from home, to bring the FE (would need to get my mum to make a second one) and all the stuff would be too much. We have a huge luggage allowance but we need to be able to actually carry all that we have!!!
John, deliveries are made any time between boarding and the last night of the cruise, but usually earlier in the trip esp if its something guests can use right away. We deliver whenever we are headed somewhere so having the list in cabin number order is helpful. Also knowing that cabins with a 0 or 1 for their 2nd digit are portside and those with 5 or 6 are starboard also helps.
I saw someone on a Fantasy cruise said they had been able to reserve a lounge for their meet and greet. Wonder if this is possible for the Magic. Anyone know?
