Twelve Cabins Booked Last Week

Lots and lots of activity here at NR’s Office of Cruise Affairs: There are over 275 cabins now booked on the National Review 2012 Post-Election Cruise. This is going to be a phenomenal  trip of which you will surely want to be part (the dates are November 11-18, and we sail on Holland America Line’s Nieuw Amsterdam for Grand Cayman, Jamaica, and Honduras). If you are, you’ll be in the company of over three dozen leading conservative speakers who will be on hand to discuss November 6th and its consequences.

Our stellar line-up of speakers (they’ll be participating in nine scintillating panel sessions, dining with our contingent, and joining us at our many swell social events) includes Islam scholar Bernard Lewis, historian Victor Davis Hanson, pollster Scott Rasmussen, former RNC chairman Ed Gillespie, political guru Ralph Reed, European Parliament conservative Daniel Hannan, columnists Cal Thomas, James Lileks, and Mona Charen, military expert Bing West, foreign-affairs experts Elliott Abrams and Anne Bayefsky, Uncommon Knowledge host Peter Robinson, legal scholars Andy McCarthy, John Yoo and Ed Whelan, economics experts James Pethokoukis, Alan Reynolds, Kevin Hassett, and Andrew Stuttaford, City Journal editor Brian Anderson, The New Criterion editor Roger Kimball, immigration expert Mark Krikorian, author Michael Walsh, NRO editor-at-large Jonah Goldberg, NR editor Rich Lowry, political correspondent John Fund, former NR editor John O’Sullivan, “Long View” columnist Rob Long, senior editors Jay Nordlinger and Ramesh Ponnuru, NRO “Exchequer” blogger Kevin Williamson, NRO editor-at-large Kathryn Jean Lopez, ace political reporter Robert Costa, NRO “Campaign Spot” blogger Jim Geraghty, national correspondent John J. Miller, and, as a special treat, former U.S. Senator, federal judge, and Reagan-administration official James L. Buckley.

There are still cabins to be had, but the most affordable ones will be going, going, gone before you can grumble “community organizer!” Get complete information about the voyage, and sign up securely, at
