Get Your Vitamin Sea on the NR Cruise this December

Oosterdam (Holland America )

Friends, we had ten cabins booked last week on the National Review 2018 Buckley Legacy Conservative Cruise, which we admit, as the title of our next bon voyage, is a mouthful, but then, it’s accurate: In our seven glorious days (December 1-8) aboard Holland America Line’s M.S. Oosterdam, (here’s a decent short video-tour of the ship), we’ll be giving extra and deserved attention to the enduring power and consequence of WFB, in addition to dissection of the congressional elections, the forthcoming 2020 presidential slugfest, the state of the movement, and so much more.

If you’ve been hedging or procrastinating on coming — in other words, if you are among the hundreds and hundreds of folks who say, “Yeah, I want to go, but we’re still thinking about it . . .” — let me suggest you place more emphasis on the chop chop and less on the dilly dally. Reserve your cabin (there’s one to meet every taste and budget) at

You will not regret signing up. This will be a marvelous week of smart discussions and conservative camaraderie. What’s not to like? Which may explain why we are getting such a rush of bookings.

Single and thinking — I’d really like to go, but I’ll stand out? Worry not. There are no third- or fifth-wheels here: Plenty of single NR-nicks are going to be attending this remarkable voyage . . . the one you most certainly do not want to miss.

So do sign up, today. And by the way, if you prefer a little more hand-holding than a website can offer, do call the good folks at The Cruise and Vacation Authority (9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Eastern time) at 1-888-283-8965. They’ll be happy to get you booked and even make your flight plans to and from Ft. Lauderdale (from where our seven days of happy sojourning will commence).

When the history of the 2018 midterms is written, there will be a chapter on missed opportunities for Democrats.

The Beatification of Beto

The media’s treatment of Texas Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke wasn’t the most egregiously unfair coverage of the past year -- that would be the treatment of Brett Kavanaugh -- but it ranks among 2018’s most annoying. The endless glowing profiles of O’Rourke in every publication from Vanity Fair to ... Read More
