Default Plan EARLY and spend New Years 06 with MIKE!

The details will be up on the site very soon. But I want to "warn" you in advance... of your opportunity to bring in 2007 with our "top fun" guy Mike... hosting a CruiseMates Group Cruise.... 5 nights, sailing Dec. 30/06... on the newly refurbed Celebrity Century.

EXCELLENT pricing for this 5 night New Years sailing... starting in the low $500s and balc cabins for just over $700. Along with the complimentary CruiseMates cocktail party and a shipboard credit! And only a $100 /person deposit to hold your space!

So be PREPARED!! Sign up for CruiseMates New Years Party of the Century!!!
Be sure not to miss Mike playing the part of the New Years baby


If you don't even want to wait for more details before booking... Get in touch with Nancy Bogert, the TA handling this group cruise....

Kuki, am I missing something? Century is not scheduled to be refurbished until April 2006, this cruise is December 2005 is it not? There are no regular balconey cabins on Century now either (not until April/May 2006). What am I missing?

It will be a party of the Century and I am really looking forward to it. The refurbishment of the Century, a New Years cruise and great people. It's a triple play that I can't miss and I'm honored to be hosting.

Don't worry, even though Kuki said I will be a New Year's baby, I will NOT don a diaper. <VBG>

You have plenty of time but I think this will sell out fast. So put the $100 deposit down to hold the cabin for a New Year on the New Century.

I look forward to seeing you,
Mike

I will be contacting Nancy tomorrow. Mike, Celebrity, New Years, how could a person go wrong? Another long countdown, but it will be worth the wait I'm sure.

I am all over this one - provided the promotion I am in hoping to get goes through. As you all know, I am in financial reporting dept at work, which means no cruising the first week of any month, and definitely not in Jan, Feb and March (Year end and tax season). This promotion is a position that the facilities director wants to make for me - in her department (out of accounting) as the Asset Manager. She is already grooming me for the position (unknown to anyone but herself and me). She is budgeting for this position in the 2006 budget, so it won't be until after the first of the year that I know what is going on, but for only $100 I will hold a cabin - just in case I can go. I have never been on a New Years cruise and have always wanted to.

Wish me luck on getting to go.

Jodi

I did one NY Eve cruise several years ago, granted it was a 7 dayer, but the prices were so high, I could have cruised twice. I said I would never do another.. BUT, with this one being reasonably priced, I could add on a 2 day pre cruise in Fll..I am sticking this one in my bonnet, we shall see.

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy! I've wanted to do another New Years cruise since 02/03 on the Imagination, and this one looks irresistable! I'll talk to James, and will probably be calling Nancy tomorrow!

Bummer, all the CruiseMates are seriously considering the cruise.

How my wife and I would love to do a New Years cruise. The price is great, and a CruiseMates cruise to boot.

Flying from the west coast for 5 days just does not seem feasible for us. Flight and pre hotel costs would add up to more than the cruise. Oh well, their will be others.

For those that book, have a wonderful time, Mike and Betty are excellent people. For those that came with us on the "Chat Rat Cruise" know how personable they are.

Mike in a diaper .. that "Depends". ... ROFL

Congrats Mike on hosting the cruise.

Wait! leaving from where? Going to? Not that it really matters, because I get to meet CruiseMates, especially my esteemed "saviour of computers", Mike! But it might make a difference with flights, etc.....

If checking out the cruise on the Celebrity web site remember that their pricing does not include port chges and taxes....... nor does it include the complimentary group cocktail party, or the extra shipboard credit we'll be offering.
