My Kind of ‘Contingency Plan’

It’s simple: the National Review 2011 Caribbean Cruise. The numbers add up: From November 12-19 you’ll enjoy a great voyage (on Holland America’s luxurious Eurodam) that’s super-sized with 37 top conservative writers, thinkers, editors, columnist, academics who will participate in 10 panel sessions, 2 “Night Owls” (one featuring the world-famous Steyn-Goldberg-Long improv), 3 cocktail receptions, 1 fantastic smoker sponsored by H. Upmann cigars, and dinner on at least 2 nights with our guest speakers. Now that’s a contingency plan!

Prices start at a very low $1,899 a person, and so far over 200 cabins have been booked. All of which means that a rollicking time is guaranteed. Interested? Of course you are. If you want complete information about the trip, visit www.nrcruise.com. You can also reserve your wonderful stateroom while you’re there. But if you prefer talking to a live person about the trip, just call the good people at The Cruise Authority at 1-800-707-1634 (call M-F between 9am and 5pm, Eastern time)—they will be happy to help you in any way (including helping you find a roommate if you need a partner to split cabin costs).
