Weekend Cruise on the Grand Princess ~ Vancouver to Seattle

Party Travelers! - It’s that time of year again for the May repositioning cruise!  This is our 4th multi-Meetup Cruise Event!!  Great for 1st time cruisers as an intro to cruising and veterans as a super fun way to party, dine and hang out with other travelers. This time we have the option of an overnight, 3-night, and/or 4-night cruise, your choice! (Click hyperlinks for info or to RSVP for the other cruises.)

There's a lot of info below, read all the details before asking questions.  A Passport or Enhanced Driver License is required for this trip (check with cruise line or customs for other options). ~Claudette

Why do an overnight cruise? This is a great way to dip a toe into the water, without a big investment of time and money. We'll board in time for dinner, maybe even a late lunch, and have breakfast on board when we dock in Seattle - and the food tends to be GREAT.  While the food is a big part of cruising, the night life, dancing and other activities are tons of fun. Once in your cabin you'll find a list of all the events and activities awaiting you.  Check out the activities available on the last overnight cruise we did in 2010:  Cruise Activities-sample.  And don't forget your swim suit - there are pools and hot tubs to lounge in and around.

Act fast - These May cruises tend to book up quickly. 
Guests are welcome, the more the merrier!!

Book cruise at for best rates and book with the group.  You'll also get other benefits like flight insurance, concierge service and more.

    I'm interested in sharing a cabin, inside preferred since it's just one night, and probably at the nightclub dancing most of it...

      Shared this for you Lee, though would be good to know if you are a woman or a man.
      **Please note** Some cabin types may already be sold out.

      Man, looks like inside is sold out anyway....

    We’re a little under 3 weeks away for this cruise and it doesn’t look like anyone’s booked yet.
    I’ve also sent a reminder email to the group so hopefully more people will RSVP. So far we have 12 people signed up in 7 Meetup Groups. Looking for a cabinmate? See the section about that in the event details.

      Remember I’m volunteering in my ‘free time’ to help with this event so do your part and read the info before posting or emailing questions. Chances are your answer’s already there.
      Having issues booking? Email me with the steps you followed (even include screenshots) so I can help. I’ve followed the steps I post just today so I know it works.
      If your plans have changed, update your RSVP. Thanks all – Bon Voyage!!

    FYI: If you don't have a Passport, I've checked that an Enhanced Driver's License will work. See hyperlink in event details for more info.
