Good morning,

I also will be on this cruise with my DD. She will be 9 on this cruise. Is this your fist solo cruise?

Last year it was so nice. We were seated at a 10 top with 4 other single moms and kids all the same age. We still talk to a couple of them.

Let me know if you would be interested in doing a tasting together. Any excursions planned yet?

Just signed on for the Sept 2nd cruise on the Dream. this will be my third. Coincidentally, I got the same stateroom as last time without even asking. It was a good location and a comfy room, so why not? Works for me. Can't wait!

Fish Extender deadline?

Usually with Fish Extender groups, there is a deadline so that everyone participating will have plenty of time to get their FE gifts all together. What do you all think about having that deadline be August 2nd? That would be a month before our sail away party...

Also, if anyone would like to sign up AFTER the deadline, they are welcome to, but then it would be up to each individual cabin to decide whether or not they have time/gifts to include any additional people.

Getting excited! It's all we can talk about!!!

August 2nd sounds perfect! That's one month out, hopefully will give us all enough time to get everything together lol. If there are any stragglers out there that sign up after August 2nd, it'll just be up to each family to decide if they'd like to add them to their list.

We have ordered our FEs (one for us, one for Gma) and have started on our FE gifts! Getting excited!!!

First off, a Fish Extender comes in many different shapes and sizes.

http://www.google.com/search?q=fish+...w=1680&bih=927

If the link above works, take a look at the pictures! These are some of the fancier fish extenders, but on our cruise there was everything from FEs like on that google link to gift bags to plastic grocery bags! Any kind of receptacle works, you just have to have a pocket/pouch/bag to put something in. Also, with a quick search on etsy or ebay, you can find a place to order one if, like us, you'd like a more personalized FE but don't have the talent or time to create your own. Maybe NEXT cruise, I'll get creative and have enough time to make our own, but this time we ordered one from a seller on etsy. Last time, we used a seller on ebay.

The FE is super fun! We participated last year on our first cruise and will definitely do it every time we cruise! We have three kids, ages 11-17. All three of them (and mom and dad too lol) were just so excited when we'd arrive back at our rooms with yet another FE gift in our pockets! I think the favorite gifts were the personalized ones; even the oldest of our kids got a kick out of the magnet with her name on it.

FE gifts can be ANYTHING your heart desires! Our cruise last year netted pencils, chocolates, personalized magnets, key chains from cruisers' home states, picture frames, Disney pins, Disney Wonder geocaching coins, a mixed cd of Mexican Riviera cruise inspired music, and much, much more! This can be as simple or as extravagant as the giver would like! Last year, we gave out birthday party favor type gifts, all Disney of course. This year, we're going to be a bit more creative.......

Okay! I'm hoping this has helped some. Sorry I didn't notice your post right away, we've been busy but for the rest of the summer will be cruise focused! WOO HOO!!!
