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).

The Worst Cover-Up of All Time

President Donald Trump may be guilty of many things, but a cover-up in the Mueller probe isn’t one of them.

Theresa May: A Political Obituary

On Friday, Theresa May, perhaps the worst Conservative prime minister in recent history, announced her resignation outside of number 10 Downing Street.

TV Before PC

Affixing one’s glance to the rear-view mirror is usually as ill-advised as staring at one’s own reflection. Still, what a delight it was on Wednesday to see a fresh rendition of “Those Were the Days,” from All in the Family, a show I haven’t watched for nearly 40 years. This time it was Woody Harrelson ...

For Democrats, the Party’s Over

If the Democrats are really tempted by impeachment, bring it on. Since the day after the 2016 election they have been threatening this, placing their chips on the Russian-collusion fantasy and then on the phantasmagoric charade of obstruction of justice. The attorney general accurately gave the ingredients of the ... Read More
