I don't think you sound like a big grinch at all. This is our first and potentially only DCL trip, and I have been feeling FOMO about everything since I don't know if we'll ever have another chance. But I had to hit the pause button when I was about to sign up for FE groups because when I looked at the time and money investment before the trip, the space in our suitcase, and the time onboard to deliver the gifts, it just seemed like a lot of hassle that wouldn't be worth it in the end. I'm happy for people who enjoy it but I would rather take the same money I would have spent and get my kids one or two gifts in the onboard gift shop or at a port instead.haha that is an awesome idea, since he will have a little freedom in the clubs too and we won't be together all the time.
I know I sound like a big grinch but I was a little surprised at the number of 4-adult rooms I was matched with and how much everything added up to. But we do have the FE thingie and I'm sure the kiddo would love coming back to a surprise even from mom.
