Crochet Cruises for 2019
We have finally put our plans in motion for all Crochet Cruises for 2019. We have 3 Crochet Cruises planned. Bookings are set with each ship and we are now taking bookings.
We have existing crocheters that love value cruises and other crocheters who love the feeling of a premium cruise ship. So for 2019, we have the best of both worlds.
Value VS Premium
The difference between a value cruise and premium cruise are the feeling, entertainment and overall presentation of a cruise ship. Value cruises has more passengers on a ship and extend themselves easily for full family fun with kids at prices that are affordable to those who wish to travel. Generally, they cater to kids with waterslides and visible differences on the ship.
Premium cruise ships are more adult oriented. With less passengers on the ship and more focused on relaxed cruises. It still has great entertainment. You will find the millennials and older on the ship. Their still may be kids, but the focus is on the adults. The ship generally is calmer with less passengers. Less pushing to get on and off the ship and more relaxed lines for the buffet and etc.
Myself, I prefer the Premium Cruise Lines because I want to relax. I live a fast paced lifestyle and the ship being calmer helps me to mellow out. New cruisers have to figure out their vibe. Some cruisers love stimulation of a party ship atmosphere in a value cruise and others want a relaxed paced cruise. So for 2019, we have the best of 2 styles of cruises.
Mardi Gras Crochet Cruise
Mardi Gras Crochet Cruise will be departing New Orleans. We are planning on an event prior to leaving New Orleans. We’ve not firmed up details yet but we are working on it. Of the 3 cruises for 2019, this is the Value Cruise, probably one of the cheapest cruises we have offered. So for our value oriented and budget minded crocheters, this is the cruise to choose. We are currently just over 50% sold for this cruise.
Bermuda Crochet Cruise
This is our first summer crochet cruise. Many teachers and students asked us to do a summer cruise so they didn’t have to miss school. So this cruise date was put into place based on requests from crocheters to accomodate their schedules.
Bermuda Crochet Cruise leaving from New Jersey is a straight shot to Bermuda with 2.5 days lay over. This is on a premium cruise ship. So relaxing and hooking our way to Bermuda is in order. The advantage of this cruise is that your hotel is floating with you. With sea days in between to rock out on your crochet hook. Crocheters demanded a north east departure. We really had a hard time selecting a cruise ship that had a conference space for our party on board. More and more cruises are not allowing their restaurants to be used during downtimes. So selecting a departure port had limited choices for us. We know people were wanting Baltimore but we couldn’t swing that. This cruise just opened up for bookings.
Panama Canal Crochet Cruise
Explore the Panama Canal Crochet Cruise. Departing Florida and heading to San Deigo California. This is a relocation cruise. It is the equivalent of 2 crochet cruises put together as 1. We’ve have done a 2 week cruise before and by the time you leave, you feel so relaxed and feel like the cruisers on board really had ample time to bond. Lots of sea days, lots of destinations to stop at. The cruise ship only goes through the Panama Canal twice in a year. So this is the ship passing through to reposition itself on the west coast. This is on a premium cruise ship. You won’t see many kids on this ship as it’s 2 weeks while school is in session.
We have cruisers for the Snow Birds for February. We have cruisers needing a crochet cruise during the summer so they don’t have to take time off work and let’s the family visit as a holiday and finally, we have cruisers who have wanted to travel through the Panama Canal.
We have limited space on each ship. The Mardi Gras Crochet Cruise is expected to sell out first due to the budget pricing offer. Our agent does accept monthly payment plans for those interested that need to put money aside. You can speak to her about that.
