Barry’s Gone. So Let’s . . . Celebrate!

Here’s how you can do that, in style, and help you check off that item surely on your bucket list: Come on the National Review 2017 Trans-Atlantic Crossing, departing from Southampton, U.K., this August 31 aboard Cunard Line’s historic and glorious Queen Mary 2, recently “remastered” and sailing for a week filled with exciting daily seminars and revelrous receptions, and arriving in New York on September 7. We’re expecting about 300 wonderful conservatives as part of the NR contingent on the kind of voyage so many folks have always wanted to do. There’s a luxurious affordable stateroom to match every taste and budget — all-inclusive prices start at only $2,577 a person! ($3,916 for singles!).

Sailing with us for the seven sensational days will former Senator Tom Coburn, former U.S. Attorney General Michael Mukasey, acclaimed novelist Mark Helprin, British author Douglas Murray, NR editor in chief Rich Lowry, media critic Brent Bozell, NRO editor Charles Cooke, ace conservative counsel Cleta Mitchell, domestic policy guru Sally Pipes, defense expert John Hillen, Claremont Review of Books editor Charles Kesler, conservative academic Daniel Mahoney, NRO editors-at-large John O’Sullivan and Kathryn Lopez, NR senior editors Jonah Goldberg, Jay Nordlinger, Ramesh Ponnuru, and David Pryce-Jones, NR essayists David French, Kevin Williamson, Reihan Salam, and Ian Tuttle, NR ace reporters Jim Geraghty, NR columnists Rob Long and James Lileks, and NRO managing editor Katherine Connell.
