A $50 CREDIT PER CABIN WILL BE GIVEN AND A 1 HOUR COMPLIMENTARY COCKTAIL PARTY WILL BE ARRANGED.
If you want to have friends join you on the cruise, they do NOT have to be Bland's to make their reservations on this website...nor do they need to register for the Bland seminars and meetings.
Our representative will arrange meeting rooms for us on "at sea" dates...
PLEASE NOTE: There will be ONE "semi-formal" evening meal where suits & ties for men, and semi-formal or formal attire for women will be held. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ATTEND THIS MEAL. You can arrange a meal at a different location on the ship, such as one of the "specialty" restaurants (prices are extra at these locations), or the buffet that is always available on ship...
I will be making arrangement for staying at a hotel the night before (October 15th) in Galveston who has either free or cheap parking while you are on the cruise... you will be able to leave your car there and not worry about it. I am also working on arranging a tour of Galveston the day before sailing, and a group meal that evening
I will send updates as they come along...
