Meetup Cruise!!!

White Bay Cruise Terminal

Join the Meetup Crew on the weekend of a lifetime! 3 Day Comedy Cruise out of Sydney between Xmas and NYE - we've got an awesome gang already registered but the more people we get the bigger the discount!! So bring your friends, leave the kids at home and come party with us! Register your interest (no obligations, it's just so we can get an idea of how many people are coming so we can get a proper idea of prices with the discount) at www.huntervalleywinerytours.com/meetup-cruise We're partnering with Spider Pigs, and hopefully other Meetup Groups from around NSW to make this the most bodacious 3-day meetup party ever!!!! We'll have a bus heading down to the cruise terminal so all transport covered. We're thinking matching Hawaiian shirts or something to get us in the groove to start with, a standard dinner booking each night and if we want a full schedule of group activities we can do that - or if you just want to do your own thing with the comfort of a meetup-backup-safety net you can do that too. Keep posted (ie sign up at the link above) for more details Can't wait to see you there! ---- WE HAVE NOW CONFIRMED OUR BOOKING WITH THE TRAVEL AGENT AND WHILE WE CAN INQUIRE ABOUT ADDITIONAL ROOMS THE PRICES (AND CABINS) WILL BE SUBJECT TO AVAILABILITY ----- ​ ---- I WILL LEAVE THE CABIN ALLOCATION FORM OPEN AS EXPRESSION OF INTEREST ONLY TO SEE IF THERE ARE ANY POSSIBLE CHANGES TO ONBOARD AVAILABILITY BUT I CANNOT GUARANTEE YOU WILL GET A ROOM ----
