    Hey guys. Pat Hand has corrected me on some information I was confused about. This year the pre-cruise hotel is not included in the price. I was confused because we included it last time. Sorry for the mix up, but the night before hotel stay is NOT included in the price. My apologies for getting it mixed up at the dinner.

      Not so far, last word was there are rooms left on the ship. Welcome aboard!

      September 25

  • Joe L.

    Just a reminder that it's time to make your deposits to reserve your room on the ship. We had people really disappointed in years past because when they finally decided to commit, the only rooms left were less than desirable. Marty and I did that the first year and ended up in a interior room next to the elevators. Learn from our mistake. :) http://hpw2017.thecruiseevent.com

    Sounds very nice. Would love to see a cruise out of Galvestion for 3 or 4 days. Would be a better turn out and have enough money left over for a new lens or camera.

      They did have a 70s sing-a-long in the last cruise that was pretty fun.

      I'll go -- if there are no space aliens or explosions. I'm good with murder mystery though!

    I looked at the website. It doesn't say when the deposit is due. Only that the total is due by Nov. 12, 2016.

    March 9

    • Joe L.

      Right. The clock you're racing is the cruise ship booking up -- or decent rooms booking up. The sooner you book, the sooner you end up with a nicer room (not next to a loud elevator). This is especially true if you're getting a balcony or port hole room. Cuz you could end up with a wonderful balcony with a view of nothing but a lifeboat.

      March 9

    • Joe L.

      Also, rooms on lower floors experience less motion, for those who have issues with that. Personally I book early cuz I like to be close to the dining room. Weird personal preference, but that's how I roll. :)
