LessCruise 2010, bring your suntan lotion!
written by Allan on November 16, 2009
Yesterday Steve and I decided to put on LessCruise. It's not something we'll make money from, we just want to hang out with our new and old friends. Why not go on a long weekend vacation together? Our good friends Alex Hillman (@alexknowshtml) and the Storenvy crew will also be helping us put this on as well.
What exactly is LessCruise?
We don't really know. We're talking about having some group excursions, a couple cocktail hours, group dinners and generally just hanging out.

What might happen at the cruise
We're talking about having a small "Barcamp at Sea" the second to last day. I am sure everyone will be hanging out talking eating meals together. I hope we can plan a group island excursion too. If our group is large enough we'll have a couple private cocktail hours in the evenings.
Cost and Stuff
We've reserved 24 rooms/48 people for the cruise, we can get more rooms, I'd guess we have 25 people committed already. We have to put down deposits in the next 30 days, so look soon for an announcement to sign-up. In the meantime let us know if you're interested.
What is a cruise all about?
Cruises are pretty laid back. I personally have been on a handful of cruises, Celebrity Cruises is the nicest cruise line. Generally the boat will be traveling towards a destination at night and you'll be at port during the day. You can leave the boat and walk around, shop, go on an adventure, sit on the beach, eat, whatever you like really. You'll come back to the boat by a certain time. You'll have all your meals prepared for you and free room service. Everything on a cruise is included, except souvenirs, alcohol and gambling. Steve and I went on a cruise together a year ago for a company trip and it was a blast.
