Cruise ???'s

We want your feedback! Even if you would never in a million years go on a scrapbook cruise, answer these questions by posting a comment here or emailing us and you'll receive a special coupon just for your time. And, we hope you would consider cruising with us...it's so relaxing, so much fun, and the most value for your money in the travel world, I believe. Like our last cruise, for example, we had 7 days and nights accomodations, travel to & from 4 separate countries, all our food & non-alcoholic beverages, and tons of entertainment on board....all for $789! That's under $113 a day. I can't go from here (south GA) to Atlanta for that per day.

Ok, back to what we want to know...please copy & paste these into an email or post a comment here.....

1 - Have you ever been on a cruise?

2 - Would you consider going on a scrapbook cruise?

3 - Is yes, would you prefer to go with or without non-cropping family members?

4 - What length of cruise is your first choice? 4 day, 5 day, 7 day

5 - Where would you like to cruise from? FLA, ALA, TX, CA, other?

6 - Where is somewhere you've never been & would like to cruise to?

7 - Any additional comments??


Ok, easy enough, right?? Answer these questions & post your answers here & then email us...or just email us the answers. By posting here first, though, everyone can read each other's ideas...an extra step, but easy. Then, we will email you an amazing coupon just for your time. How about that?!?!? Everyone wins this time...no drawing names!


And, last night, I posted a video on YouTube with one of the entertainers we had on our last cruise...check it out here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u76tfZSroLA

Also, we posted pix from our last one on the blog a few posts back...be sure to check those out, too.

We really hope you'll consider cruising with us next year.

Kristen said...

Here are my answers:
1. I've never been on a cruise.
2. Honestly, I might consider going on a scrapbook cruise, but I would be torn between enjoying the cruise aspects of the trip or staying inside and scrapbooking. To me a cruise is excursions and sitting beside the pool, not shut away in a room.
3. I would prefer to go without non-cropping family members for those very same reasons--I wouldn't want to feel like I was ignoring them or missing out on anything.
4. Probably 5 day so I'm not gone so long.
5. Texas would be the closest port for me.
6. The Carribean islands. Anywhere with white sandy beaches and blue sky!
7. If you're giving away a seat, all my concerns about mixing the two activities are out the window!

2. I would go on a scrapbook cruise.
3. Prefer to go alone, if I can get a roommate from the scrapbook cruisees.
4. I would like a 7 day cruise.
5. I would like to cruise from Texas.
6. Alaska (out of W Coast) or "different" Carribean out of Texas.
7. If you can get a confirmed (locked up when we're not there) crop room so we don't have to take our stuff back and forth; that's perfect. The one cruise I did we had a daily make 'n take (very simple fast easy-to-do one for port days); which was fun.

Susan said...

I have been on several cruises and they are so much fun. i would suggest taking family members because there is so much to do on a ship. Any length of time would be great, but if you go with a seven day cruise, I would suggest keeping the scrapbooking part to five days and let the other two be free days for everyone.

Welcome, said...

1 - Have you ever been on a cruise?
No, we haven't but hubby and i are planning one for late 2010, early 2011.

2 - Would you consider going on a scrapbook cruise? I would, but would need at least a year's notice with vacation requests for work and payment plan.

3 - Is yes, would you prefer to go with or without non-cropping family members? WIth non-cropping family. Hubby would demand to go to.

4 - What length of cruise is your first choice? 4 day, 5 day, 7 day? 5 day with an extra day at either end to relax. Get together at hotel night before we leave maybe?


5 - Where would you like to cruise from? FLA, ALA, TX, CA, other? Does not matter. WOuld like one though with a good teen program.

6 - Where is somewhere you've never been & would like to cruise to? I think any type of cruise would be fun. They even have them on the Missippi, I've heard, in the old fashion Mark Twain paddle boats.


7 - Any additional comments??
I would also enjoy a Disney, New York City, San Fransico, New Orleans, Boston, or Denver crop. Where we would stay at a local hotel or on the resort, have access to classes but yet be able to site see to.

Dove said...

1 - Have you ever been on a cruise? many, none of which were scrapbooking

4 - What length of cruise is your first choice? 4 day, 5 day, 7 day - 7day

5 - Where would you like to cruise from? FLA, ALA, TX, CA, other? NY

6 - Where is somewhere you've never been & would like to cruise to? The places I would like to go I can't afford-like the Mediterranean or a European River Cruise. LOL But, I did a New England cruise that I thought was fabulous and I wouldn't mind doing that again.

7 - Any additional comments?? Most group cruises are soooo much more expensive than you can get online just booking your own cruise. :( I understand you have the scrapbooking classes; but somehow, I just can't justify that extra expense for the cruise.
