An Overdue Reunion
This is a straight-up cruise. No fundraising, no organizational involvement. We're doing this just so we'll have a reason to get together again. Absolutely Cruising! will be making the arrangements so that we may travel as a group, and any commission will be put into supporting the trip.
When: December 12-17, 2013. Final payment due by September 15, 2013.
Who: Anyone who'd like to come. Feel free to invite friends.
Why: Because we don't get together enough.
Where: Leaving from Fort Lauderdale, FL and cruising completely across the Gulf of Mexico, skirting Cuba and arriving at Cozumel where all guests will be encouraged to visit the ancient Mayan city of Tulum.
What Ship? Liberty of the Seas, former "Largest Ship in the World" and still pretty damn big. She boasts such crazy amenities as on-board surfing, a boxing ring, a miniature golf course, hot tubs that hang over the side of the ship, ice skating and a shopping mall. We'll be sure to find a cozy corner to meet in.

How Much Does it Cost?
We have group space on the ship so prices are locked in for certain categories, but at this early date there are many open categories, include some inside cabins that are a little cheaper than our group rates, and suites which would be more (and larger). While you must book through us to be part of the group, you do not have book one of the following cabin types. These are just the ones that are guaranteed not to go up in price:
Inside - $335
A well-appointed cabin with no window, but a large mirror instead. Basic, comfortable, accommodations which would be just fine a journey such as this. You won't be spending much time in your cabin. It is possible to fit three of four people in some cabins. There is a TV station that shows a picture of outside.
Outside - $529
Very similar to the above, but with a porthole or large window depending on category. Windows are nice for helping determine weather, position, and time of day, and most people prefer a cabin where they can see out.
Verandah - $569
Verandahs have private balconies, which are great for those who like to lounge and read. A favorite activity is get breakfast to the room and dine on your balcony taking in the sun and waves.
All cabins will also have the following costs:
Taxes and fees: $84.43
Pre-paid tips: $44 (Required to travel as a group)
