AFTE 2014 Cruise
« on: May 14, 2012, 11:02:01 PM »
Greetings all.
Yes we are getting a little ahead of ourselves here, but we are working on a 7 day Alaska group cruise leaving right after the Seattle AFTE meeting in 2014. Some members have already expressed interest, so I put a quick page together aftecruise.org.   We will start booking at the Albuquerque meeting.
Thanks!

Virgin cruiser I can tell! Like Titanic  :o Estate rooms range from steerage to first class (closets with no windows to suites with balconies). Cost is up to you. I will tell you that rates will be discounted from what is on the internet as we will have group rates (along with other perks).

No...been on cruises...and there has always been a price! Range, yes...but always a price. I looked at the website you posted and they are showing no cruises to Alaska in May 2014..........

You can't book 'til a year out, so they are not up yet. We were just seeing how much interest there would be. The link was for some ballpark numbers (2012,2013) or you can email the travel guy on my page.

OK!  I looked up May this year and next year and Princess doesn't seem to have any Alaskian cruises at all going on.  I'm assuming their Alaskian cruises are on the more reasonable side...not these $2500-$4500 ones I'm seeing  :o  I'd be interested depeding on lots of maybes, including the est. cost!  Definitely a fun idea.

Bill, since Rick posted this on my birthday I think I win a [made up by me] prize in which my cruise is paid for by AFTE 2014.  :laugh:

Happy Bday! Don't give away our surprises Justine! But yes, there might be a cabin giveaway/raffle. I will post some approximate costs for the group rate on the website soon, but price will go down as we start booking next year. Standby to standby.

Prices will start at about $600 (room, food, nightly entertainment) base rate per person for the week with inside(no window) cabin, to over $1000 per person and higher for an ocean view.  Cheap primarily due to off-peak season (variable weather) and group rate discount. Ballpark.....
