|WOOPS, WRONG CRUSE, KEEP READING BELOW! THIS IS THE USS BARACK OBAMA BS BOAT|
Won't you? The old Frankie Ford tune is inspiring me today, and I'm hoping it does the same for you, putting you in the frame of mind to consider joining me and a host of top conservative writers and figures on the National Review 2017 Trans-Atlantic Crossing.
Have you ever wanted to take an ocean cruise (really, it's a sailing, or in this case, as billed, a crossing) on a big, bold, beautiful liner — namely, Cunard Line's historic Queen Mary 2? Sure you have. And take a look at her: Ain't she something else?
|HELLO, THAT'S A "BIG MOMMA" SHIP|
She sure is, and I would know: I paid her a visit last year when QM2 was docked in New York. Mama mia, this is a classy ship. Big, stunning, totally retrofitted, amenities galore, I was terribly impressed (and satiated — we had lunch on board and the food was terrific). Yep, Sweet Mary is luxurious. She's elegant. The only thing she's missing is — you.
Maybe you're thinking — I can't afford this. Well, you'd be wrong. Because on the National Review 2017 Trans-Atlantic Crossing, there is a well-appointed, comfortable cabin to meet every level of taste and affordability, yes, even aboard the most famous, prestigious cruise line in the world.
Prices start at an incredibly low $2,577 (per person) for couples, and single rates are as low as $3,916. No, you're not in steerage. And yes, the prices are all inclusive — all meals, all activities, fees and taxes, all NR events (our daily seminar sessions, our revelrous receptions and smokers).
If you've always wanted to do this trip (our crossing starts in Southampton, UK on August 31 and after seven glorious days at sea arrives in New York City on September 7) then do it in the company of some great conservative stars and the editors of your favorite magazine and website (and about 300 wonderful fellow conservatives).
Visit www.nrcruise.com for complete details. And email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any particular questions. You can also call the friendly folks at The Cruise and Vacation Authority at 888-283-8965 (Monday to Friday, 9AM to 5PM, eastern time) — they'd be thrilled to answer your questions and help you to get the stateroom you desire.
If you're considering your 2017 vacation plans, you can stop right here. I'm looking forward to seeing you in August on the National Review 2017 Trans-Atlantic Crossing.
