T-shirts are not that difficult to do. I did some t-shirts years ago for a family reunion (not cruise) very easy. If you have a publisher program such as MS publisher you can design a t-shirt then get iron on transfer paper (I think Walmart carries it?? or you might have to do a little searching for it--(I think I ordered mine thru somewhere--can't remember) Just make sure when you run it on your printer that you do it in reverse. Most printer software has a place where you can click for reverse imaging. Then you can buy plain t-shirts and iron it on. I found it actually worked better for me--once i had the design to take it over to a t-shirt print place and let them iron it on. Didn't cost too much and seemed to work better--but you can do it your self--with your own iron.
Our group consists of 17 family members. We are also doing the t-shirts. Some of the guys put up a fight at first but they have agreed to wear them. I purchased white t's, made up a design and am having a printer do them for me at a cost of $3 per shirt. Of the 17, 7 are children, 5 girls and 2 boys, all under the age of 11. I am making matching dresses for the girls and shirts for the boys for them to wear to dinner. I think it will also make a great picture for grandma, all the grandkids together, dressed alike.
I also started a family club at Yahoo groups about our cruise. I have posted all sorts of information that everyone needs to know, pictures and info about our ship and just things about cruising in general. We all post back and forth with ideas and questions. Its been a lot of fun.

I went with a group a friends many years ago (5 girls, 1 cabin, what a blast!). Anyway, we all had to bring 5 of something to distinguish us as a group. I brought a bunch of confetti and those string things that you throw for when we were leaving port (no one else had them and everyone was jealous!). Another girl brought feather boas to wear on the formal night. I can't remember what the other ones were. Have a great time!
