Are you at least 55+, and a solo-savvy senior? Are you ready to enjoy life on your own terms? Are you fed up with the hustle, bustle of airports, OR just not a flyer-like me?
Have you considered cruising but skeptical about going it alone? Are you looking for that all-inclusive, budget-friendly vacation with like- minded folks, but also time to yourself? Then consider joining our group.
This Meetup is for those who live close enough to make ocassional meetups in the Central Jersey area. Meetups will allow us to make new friends/acquaintances prior to sailing. Sailings would be from Cape Liberty Port, Bayonne or New York, and possibly Baltimore. You can decide to sail in a solo-cabin, or share a cabin with a personal friend (hopefully they will join our meetup group), OR newly-made meetup friend.
This meetup will have a 50-member limit, and THOSE NOT AVAILABLE TO MAKE MEETUPS WILL BE REMOVED AFTER 2-MISSED MEETUPS. IF YOU TYPICALLY JUST SIGN UP TO MEETUPS, BUT NEVER REALLY INTEND TO PARTICIPATE, THEN THIS IS NOT THE MEETUP GROUP FOR YOU. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THIS MEETUP IS SPECIFIC TO SOLO-SENIORS CRUISING OUT OF NJ/NY,Baltimore WITH NO FLYING TO PORTS. If you are looking for something different then please search other Meetup sites that encompass more. Also, this is NOT a singles dating Meetup, nor a site to only find a cabin-mate to share costs.
Sailings will be booked twice a year, and far enough in advance for payment planning. Once committed, most sailings require a deposit of $250, then final payments not due until 3-months before sailing. We are currently working with a travel agent, as a group, for better discounts, however, you are free to make your own arrangements.
Once joining the group, you and others may decide to book a cruise of your liking, and not necessarily on our list.
You need not go on all sailings, but it is expected that when joining this group, IT IS your intention to cruise.
