The daily entreaties to the various patron saints of traveling – Christopher, Raphael the Archangel, Anthony of Padua, Nicholas of Myra, and Gertrude of Nevilles (who is also invoked against rats; I’m not sure if that applies to Kerry campaign officials) – have born fruit. We have gotten hold of a few more Zuiderdam cabins from Holland America for the National Review 2004 Post-Election Caribbean Cruise. How or why this has happened, other than the heavenly pleas, I know not – don’t ask questions is my motto. I assume it’s due to the avalanche of reservations coming in for our spectacular sojourn (eight new staterooms have been booked since our last update) combined with cabin cancellations, etc.
Anyway, you’ve still got a chance to join the nearly 350 fellow NR-o-philes for the trip of a lifetime, in the company of a top-shelf, all-star, A+ contingent of speakers: Bernard Lewis, Victor Davis Hanson, Dick Morris, Rep. Pat Toomey, Ed Gillespie, Stephen Moore, John Hillen, Dinesh D’Souza, Michelle Malkin, John Derbyshire, John O’Sullivan, Rich Lowry, Ramesh Ponnuru, and Jay Nordlinger (Jay may be last on this list, but never least – he is super bright, and without doubt the best panel moderator you’ve ever seen!).
Get the lead out: go right now to www.nationalreviewcruise-carib.com to snag one of the few remaining cabins, or to get complete information.
