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.
Alaska is a great place to cruise and has beautiful scenery and quiet times which are great for introspection.
I always try to find cruises where taxes, tips, etc. are included.
Please consider me for assistance in putting together one for Alaska in the future if the first goes well....thanks.
Just remember to take a 5 gallon bucket with you with a hole cut in the lid and some feline pine litter in it. Also take a supply of beef jerky, bottled water and a solar car fan in case the cruise ship breaks down.
The only type of cruise that would interest me is a great lakes cruise. In fact it would be a great way to hold tea party events in some of the midwest port cities kind of like tea party express tours.
Its still too rich for my blood at this point but its an idea.
