2023 Booking Info

We’re going sailing again. Things will operate a little different this time. You’ll book from our cabin block directly with Royal Caribbean. Booking in our block benefits both you and our group as a whole. Cabins in our block have a lowest price guarantee, so if at any time they sell cabins outside of our block cheaper, let us know, and we’ll all get a lower price. Additionally, the more cabins we sell in our block, the more access we will get to function rooms for our special events. There will be no con badges. Just get a cabin and come have fun. We’ll have the Naruto Run Bar Crawl, the Beach Cosplay Contest, and meetups again. We’ll add more activities as we get closer to the cruise and based on what function rooms we get.

We have a facebook group where we make and share plans, and answer each others questions:

Further details and booking instructions are below. We hope you can join us!
