I Know What You Are Doing May 17!

You’ll be boarding the Explorer of the Seas, Royal Caribbean’s beautiful ship, in Cape Liberty, N.J., as you head off for five nights of glorious conservative revelry on the National Review 2014 Bermuda Cruise. We’ve got a great line-up of top speakers — there to handicap the major upcoming election and discuss current events — including legal scholar John Yoo, former U.S. senator Jon Kyl, military/security experts Bing West and John Hillen, best-selling authors Amity Schlaes and Midge Decter, syndicated columnist Mona Charen, former Commentary editor Norman Podhoretz, former New York Sun editor Seth Lipsky, City Journal editor Brian Anderson, NRO editors-at-large Jonah Goldberg and Kathryn Jean Lopez, NR editor Rich Lowry, political correspondent John Fund, senior editors Jay Nordlinger and Ramesh Ponnuru, NRO “Exchequer” blogger Kevin Williamson, NRO “Campaign Spot” blogger Jim Geraghty, columnist James Lileks, social-policy expert Jennifer Marshall, and the inimitable political gadfly Kaj Relwof.

Some 300-plus NR subscribers will join us on this five-night sun-filled sojourn. In store for them — and you! — is a superior Royal Caribbean cruise visiting King’s Wharf, home to the historic Royal Naval Dockyard (where NR’s cruises have been before, and have longed to return). You’ll have two full days to spend on the island: Visit glorious beaches, shop, have a pint, snorkel, scooter — you name it, there is much to do here. Or not do (a book, a chair, the beach, some shade — relax!). NR Cruise alumni know how excellent and worthwhile our trips are, and the National Review 2014 Bermuda Cruise will be just that. A great (and affordable!) time awaits, made all the better by those numerous hallmark NR exclusives and extras, such as

– six scintillating seminars featuring NR’s editors and guest speakers;

– a fun-filled “Night Owl” session;

– intimate dining on two evenings with a guest speaker or editor;

– two revelrous pool-side cocktail receptions;

– a late-night “smoker” featuring world-class H. Upmann cigars.

If you’re one of the NR subscribers who’ve always wanted to go on one of your favorite magazine’s renowned sojourns — but haven’t — I know that you’ll make this the one. And why not? Our very affordable rates start at just $1,799 a person for a luxury stateroom (“verandah” cabins are just $2,899 a person!), and singles can come for as low as $2,299.

Join us. For complete information, and to book your cabin securely, visit www.nrcruise.com.
