Thank you for your interest in our
'99 Cruise! These periodic
updates will be sent to those who have requested information
about the cruise or those already booked. I hope you enjoy them
whether you decide to book a stateroom or not. Iíve never found
a more relaxing and enjoyable vacation than a seven day cruise,
even though I keep trying.
This year's cruise is on The Enchantment
of the Seas, a one
year old ship from Royal Caribbean, International. We'll be leaving
Miami on Sunday, January 24, 1999 and visiting St. Thomas, St.
Maarten, and RCL's private island in the Bahamas (Cococay) before
returning to Miami on January 31.
This year I will keep a web site with
all the information and post
these updates there as well. Due to strong interest when I announced
this year's cruise at the National Convention July 4th, I've arranged
for 24 staterooms for our group. The first eight are now spoken for.
Ten inside staterooms and six outside staterooms are still available
at our great group rates.
There will be an announcement in the
August LP News and I
expect our group will fill by mid August. If additional rooms are
available later they will be at higher rates (brochure rates are 55%
higher), so move quickly to put down a deposit if you are likely to
join us. Cancellation with full refund of deposit is available till
November 25th and I'll be keeping a waiting list to fill cancellations
in the order your deposits are received.
As you will see if you visit the "Libertarian Cruise" web site at:
Harry and Pamela Browne were the first to join Ellen and
in booking a stateroom. We hope you and any of your cruising
friends can join Brownes and us for this special occasion.
As a first
step for those interested (after learning all the
info at the web site) I would suggest picking up a Royal Caribbean
brochure at your local travel agency titled, "Caribbean and Bahamas
1997-1999". It tells all about their ships and the itineraries.
of our voyage as well as all the general
details of cruising are carefully written for the novice. There
are features such as extra baggage insurance, cancellation
insurance, air add-on prices, and pre- and post-cruise extra
vacations listed. If you donít have a travel agency close by,
I can arrange to have a copy mailed to you. Just let me know
if you need that.
most of those options in future updates, but the
brochure really does a great job of explaining everything. I also
like having the brochure around as the cold winter months come
along. Part of the fun of cruising is the anticipation!
to invite all of you to join us on this cruise, I
asked the agent we used last year, Brooke Parker, if she could
accommodate this year's group. She did a very nice job for us last
year and agreed to assist us again, getting us a 10% better group rate!
Brookeís agency is:
