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).

Gillette Is Not Wrong

Is the new Gillette razor ad a radical feminist attack on masculinity — the commercial embodiment of a woke sensibility? I was prepared to think so. But having watched it twice, I find a lot to like. The ad has been panned by some conservative commentators. With all due respect, I think they are falling into a ... Read More

David Webb’s White Privilege

And here I thought I was the only black man with white privilege. Areva Martin, a CNN “analyst” — whatever in hell that means anno Domini 2019 — was in the middle of a spirited exchange with the conservative talk-radio host David Webb about racial preferences in hiring. Webb argued — as ... Read More
