Scrap Cruise 2010

Woo hoo, it's set! Our next cruise, that is! Won't you join us?

When? Where? How much??

July 18 - 25
departs Tampa, FL
aboard Carnival Legend

Where to? Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Belize, and Roatan Isle, Honduras

Prices start at just $789 each, with other possible discounts available.

$69 crop fee

Ok, that's the basic info. Now, for a little more insight as to why this cruise...after reading the hundreds of comments & answers to our last cruise questionaire, we listened.

For starters, we picked a summer cruise. I thought that would make the price way higher, but the benefit to this economy we're in, the price we paid for spring is now the price we pay for prime-summertime...when it's usually much higher! I think it's a great time for a family have a ball onboard...and you can run away for hours a day and scrap, but not feel as guilty as you would if you left them all at home.

As with all our cruises, some will bring spouses & family...some will come with a group of scrap pals...some will just bring their hubby...any way you want is fine by us! We all have fun croppin' & learning together...and can all sit together at dinner each night, kids & hubbies, too. It's such a low-stress vacation...that's why Keller & I love these so much!

Our crop fee is separate, so if you do bring spouses or kids or non-scrappin' friends (as we all have some of those) only croppers pay this. For $69, you get 3 full scale classes ($25 each), 4 fun make & take projects ($15 value), Goodie Bag ($100 value), and unlimited crop time for the entire trip! And, we pack most of the tools you'll you don't have to bring your ENTIRE scrap room aboard. It's a vacation, remember?

The itineray is to die for. I loved Roatan so much that I was determined to go back when Keller could go. That one stop is worth the whole trip for me. The other 3 are great, too...can't wait to do the sting ray snorkel again!

And value? Just think, a plane ticket to just one of these countries would cost as much as the whole week. And you'll go to all 4 countries. All your food is included...sodas & alcoholic beverages are extra...but all teas & coffee & juices are included. A week in any hotel would cost more than the whole cruise...and I get the BEST sleep on board...wish it was like that when I traveled the rest of the year. You also get entertainment 24 hours a day...there's always something fun going on somewhere. And, when you combine scrapping all week? Just think of your day...wake up, eat an amazing breakfast, scrap a while, go to pool, eat lunch, take a nap, scrap a while, go play bingo, scrap a while, go to a nice dinner, scrap a while, go see a show, scrap a while....what a day! And, those are the ones on board...when we stop in port, we're sure NOT to have planned scrap classes, but the crop room is still there for you if you come back aboard early.

Ok, if I haven't covered any questions you may have, please email me at

If you're set to go with us...or want to figure out how to pay for it, the earlier the better. Debbie at Blue Sail Cruises has worked an amazing deal with Carnival...that just $100 deposit by Jan 6th guarantees your spot at these low rates. Then, a $250 payment in Feb and the balance by the end of April. Some other discounts may apply (like Sr. Citizen, repeat cruiser, etc), so call Debbie with your details. Her number is 229.228.0321. Or email me for forms to print with all this info.

We have room for 25 croppers, so space is limited.

We hope you'll join us!
