Really like the idea....however, there are many of us on the west coast would find it much easier to make a cruise starting from west coast and cruising to Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, or the Pacific Coast.
I have taken seven cruises and always look for the best prices and most of the time end up with a balcony or suite at much less of a price the Holland America is showing for this cruise.
Wish you much luck for the Caribbean cruise and hope a west coast departure can also be arranged soon....
The vast majority of the tea party minded people don’t have that kind of money to blow on frivolous crap.
I find regular cruises really boring, but after experiencing the National Review Cruise, which is a huge elaborate event that takes place within a cruise, I decided to try the same thing for activists. With all these themed cruises you have to figure out a way to pay for the transportation costs of the celebrities, which is why it cost more than the discounted price. The price also includes taxes, fees and TIPS, which is not included in discounted cruises. Also, no speaker is paid a fee, and they work very hard all week. Amazingly, Freedom on the Sea can be cheaper than CPAC on a nightly basis.
I would love to try an Alaskan cruise next time, though.
