Just Topped 240 Cabins Sold!

The National Review 2008 Caribbean Post-Election Cruise (scheduled for November 8-15) is going to be a record-breaker. Sales are so fast and furious we’ve had to grab all remaining cabins on Holland America’s new Eurodam. Why are so many NRO readers signing up? – no doubt it’s the impressive cast of 20 (so far) speakers and editors who will be joining us from November 8–15 on Holland America Line’s new Eurodam:

Mitt Romney, Victor Davis Hanson, Bernard Lewis, Mark Steyn, Christopher Buckley, William McGurn, Jonah Goldberg, Brent Bozell, Pat Toomey, Andy McCarthy, Rob Long, Deroy Murdoch, Byron York, Kathryn Lopez, Kate O’Beirne, Ramesh Ponnuru, Jay Nordlinger, John J. Miller, Darcy Olsen, and Fr. Robert Sirico.

Zounds! As of yesterday there were 239 cabins booked. Such happy souls these reservati, who will sail in luxury while enjoying:  

  • six scintillating seminars (on politics and current events) featuring National Review’s editors and guest speakers
  • three revelrous pool-side cocktail receptions
  • two late-night “smokers” featuring world-class H. Upmann cigars and complimentary cognac
  • a sunny itinerary: Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas, and Half Moon Cay
  • intimate dining on two evenings with guest speakers and editors

 Demand is high, inventory is dwindling, and (roomy and beautiful) cabin prices remain affordable (starting at $1,831.00 p/p or $2,513.00 for singles). Get over to www.nrcruise.com and book your stateroom while there is still time.

The Biden Protection Racket

Joe Biden is the most cosseted presidential candidate in memory. He’s run a minimalist campaign that’s avoided the press as much as possible, while the press hasn’t been braying for more access and answers, but eager to avoid anything that could be discomfiting to the campaign.

Most polls show opposition to Court packing and the abolition of the Electoral College. Voters don’t seem to like ... Read More
