What have you done FUN for your meet & mingle...need ide
Hi all,

As I posted earlier, we currently have 105 people in the meet & mingle that I started. I want to do something fun or nice for them. RCCL will give name tags/lanyards so I don't think I need to do that. Please advise me. We sail one month from today - WOOHOO!

We've had a gift exchange of small items from the area we live.

When I hosted a cruise, for Cruisemates, one of the things I gave my guests were brightly colored koozies for drinks. I went to Michaels Crafts at the end of the season, and got great deals on them. I also gave each goody bag a hilighter for making off the activities in the daily sheet, among other goodies....have fun!

we too did a gift exchange...anyone who wanted to participate brought something (we did $10 max) and wrapped them, piled them on the bar after the official M&M and then everyone came and grabbed one....

we did a mini golf tournament too. we were going to do it funny, like putt opposite handed, or use the golf club like a pool cue, etc. Turned out the day we did this, it was sooooooo windy that just playing normally wsa a PITA. We had a blast! Someone even got little fake trophies at the dollar store for best & worst scores, etc.

And we did a slot pull. (we did not arrange this with the casino ahead though.) we all chipped in 21 bucks for 7 pulls on a Wheel of fortune machne. we had a couple record keepers, and official counters....we each took a turn and left all the winnings in...cashed out. I think we all got 13 bucks back....SOOOooo we did another one! that time, we wound up with like 5 bucks.....

The thing with that is, others in the area may want to's up to you if you want to let them in...we did not (as best we could).

The crew member basically handed us the mic (ok,handed it to ME as the rest of our group put me in charge of that! :shock: 8) ) and, at the M&M i told our group what was up!

also, on most ships, there is a message board by guest can fill out a form with an activity-i told the group to always check there as that is how we'd communicate.

we had a lot of fun!!!!

TRIP: i like that idea too!

We also had a slot pull for each leg of the around the horn repo on the Mariner. We had about 70 for each one and did not let anyone else join.
Work with the Casino Manager. He might give you something. He gave us our own slot tournament. He might give you a raffle. During your tournament, have him there and recognize. Tell him you will mention him in your comments after the cruise and how helpful he was. He will work with you.

GREAT ideas!!! I wonder how I contact the casino manager ahead of time?

You have to wait til you're onboard to contact them. Corporate is very strict about about that. Just go to the casino the first evening and you should have no problem talking to them.
