Carnival's cruise ship Triumph docked at St. Thomas.
 

Ahoy, Freepers!  Why not make your next year's vacation a FREEPER CRUISE? Can't think of a better idea!
United we stand for conservative activism AND some good old-fashioned fun, too!

This cruise thread will be running right up until embarkation day.  It'll be packed with lots of information.
Post your enthusiastic comments here.  Links are provided below for stateroom/fares information, registration form and
the Bahama Mama Q&A thread devoted solely to answers for all your cruise questions and to provide you with smooth sailing.

We strongly urge you to register ASAP.  We need a certain number of registrations by a mid-January cutoff date
to ensure our reserved block of cabins with Carnival.  From many communications we've received since last year's terrific cruise,
we're certain the interest is out there.  We don't want to have to deep-six this event if we don't get enough registrations in a timely manner.
PLEASE NOTE to hold off on making your air tickets reservations until we give you the go-ahead.
We have more than ample lead-time for this cruise and you'll be able to get good air-fare bargains in plenty of time!
Since some air-transportation tickets are non-refundable, we don't want anyone to be left holding the ditty-bag.

As an incentive for early registration, the first 20 Freepers to get their reservations into the travel agency
will win their choice of five (5) sheets of Ocents.com stamp sheets (go to that website for Seeking the Truth's array of terrific stamps!)
They will also receive a usflagballoon.com pin courtesy of Abner (check out Abner's usflagballoon website
to view the colorful pin and some excellent pictures of the US Flag Balloon!)  Registrations will be dated and time-stamped by the agency.
Winners will be notified and they'll receive their gift stamps and pins via mail.

We've got a great contest planned for later.  A lucky winner will receive a FREE cabin for two!
Last year, the contest was won by our Freeper pal, Taxman.  This time it may be you!

Bookmark this thread.  We'll keep you posted as plans evolve.  Register now for this fun-filled getaway in the sun!
Informal FRN meetings will be held on board which will be full of information and idea-sharing for effective conservative activism.

Rock the boat with your fellow Freepers!  Climb aboard today!
 

This page is for general comments about the cruise.
If you have questions, do not post them here.
Use the Bahama Mama link and ask them there.
Thank you!

My piggy bank is already starting to work on this. Every penny! I had so much fun last year and don't want to miss this one. All aboard, everyone. Oh wait, that's the train, what do you say for a ship.

Sailing, sailing over the bounding main...

Hey, that sounds like me! Well, except, I'm not all that tall. I used to be blond once though. Honest I have been on a ship once, it was a med. cruise? Oh never mind.

Hey, Dixie! I've got first dibs on the tall blond captain. But what if he looks like Tiny Tom Daschle? Oh, my! I'd walk the plank first.

All you freepers who went on last year's cruise, please weigh in. Did we have a blast or didn't we?

Think "Win the contest!" LOL!

Lessee, one week at sea, locked up with a bunch of FReepers.

Now, that sounds like a plan -- ships capacity is what, 2500 guests or so?

2500 FReepers might, just might, be able to show Carnival a thing or two.

Ahoy, mateys, lessgocruizin!

I would LOVE to go. I don't fly either if I can help it, but I don't have a problem with driving. Maybe this would be a good trip for the FReepmobile!

This trip looks fantastic. Our family had a great time last year, even if I can't beat LurkerNoMore at beach volleyball.

I'm going to slather myself with sunscreen now and pretend I'm already on the boat...

Did you notice one of the ship's many watering holes is named "The Capital". They must have known we were coming!

For a great pic of this beautiful lounge, hit the "Carnival ship Triumph" link.

Last years cruise was great. Heck, I'm still hearing about it from people that weren't even there. Some friends came back from Florida a month or so ago and told us about a place in Key West where they saw a decal that said, "Turban Repair Kit".

They blamed us... Go figure.

I'm sure something could be arranged. I've been waiting for another one of these (FReeper cruises). I didn't go on the last one. I really hope I can swing it.

Read about the FReepmobile.

Read the thread on the "FReepmobile"...think it is a great idea. Anyway, count me in if you plan to take this thing to Florida for the cruise, with or without the banners.

When you reach the destination, does the ship run aground so that everyone can jump off, swim to shore, and run all over the local freeways until caught by the local immigration authorities?

Terrified of airplanes actually since birth! I turned down an all expenses paid trip to Hawaii a few years ago because I just can't get on that darn plane!

See you soon!!!!

That question was asked on the Bahama Mama thread. I think she is researching the full extent of connections. Check in there later for a reply. There's a link on the thread that shows Internet Cafe type facilities on board.
