Default Bear Cruise

Is anyone else booked on Chumleys Bear Cruise leaving Oct 31st on the Star Princess. SO far there are 125 of us, just wondering if there are other that arn't booked through us. Last year we met a few that turned out to be a lot of fun. If anyone wants details on this cruise email me privately and I will send a link to it, since we arn't allowed to post web address's here

John

Bears...my favorite eye candy....
Are these cruises scheduled every year..this is the first time I have ever read anything about them....and I think if they were advertised more there would be more interest.
I would like to know if there will be one or more crusies in 2005...any idea?

Hey;
Just saw your note on a google search for "bear cruise".
My boyfriend and I have signed up for a bear cruise, but not the Chumlee one. It seems strange, but there are several bear groups on this cruise. I signed on with Rita Olwell travel in Ft. Lauderdale from an ad I saw in 411 magazine. The other day I was searching for others going on this cruise to check out who was going and such. I found the Chumlee site, which scared me because it said that other travel agencies had stolen the idea from them. I called both Chumlee's agent and mine and discovered a few things. The only difference is that Chumlee's will have some private functions and olwell's will have some private functions. Otherwise the boat is open to all, and we will be able to mix and mingle as we see fit.
I'm psyched to see so many people signed up, because according to Olwell travel they have around 120 also. This is going to be a big party!
They also told me that a Bear calendar will be shot on the boat. 4 professional models then 8 regular folk from the boat!
I definitely want to find out more about the guys on the boat, so let me know how your travel plans are shaping up in the next few months. If you know of any chat rooms or newsgroups please let me know!
Thanks!
Brandon

This is a mess and I am trying to stay out of it. The number that We (Chumley's group) are advertising is the amount in OUR group which is the original bear cruise and no one can dispute that. The amount the other group is advertising is our number PLUS theirs.....???

here is the link to Chumley's personal profile on AOL...

*** edited by monitor***

Near the bottom Chumley himself explains

Last year we had a blast and we have a lot of repeats this year. As nice as the Volendam was last year, this Princess ship seems WONDERFUL...

Everyone BOOKED on Chumley's cruise has a private invite ONLY Yahoo group so our members can discuss the cruise amongst ourselves. There is a general Yahoo group which anyone may join to decide, its explained at the above link.

Unfortunatly we cannot post links on here, I thought maybe a personal profile would be ok. To find information on this do a google search for

Chumley's bear cruise

It will come up in several places.. Only 121 days to go....

One question I have and not sure if anyone can answer this, maybe there will be someone from Princess reading this.....

We are going to be at Sea on Election Day.....We are planning on doing mail in ballots however does anyone know what channels the ship carries on their tv system, will we be able to follow the returns?

Thanks to anyone of can help

John

John, on the Diamond, we had CNN or MSN. We also got a lot of stations from Tenessee (for some reason -- we were on the West Coast).

You should be fine about keeping up on national results -- local may be harder to come by.

Hi Flbear....The official Bear Cruise is a yearly event by "Chumley's Bear Cruises". I don't know if anything can be done about events, you might want to send Chumley an Email and see what can be worked out. There are several "Copy Cats" out there and they are NOT part of the group. Using goodle do a net search for Chumley's Bear Cruise, it will come up near the top, you'll get his email and details there.

We have over 100 that were on last years cruise, this year we're well over 150 and still booking although rooms are getting tight.

Go to that site and take a look.

John

Thank you so much for making me aware of this. I did the research and sure enough that Rita place is not the original, whats his deal anyway? For whatever reason sounds like he has it in for this Chumley guy.

So - I booked today with Paul Staulbaum for the Chumley Cruise. Thanks again for providing the information, see you on board.

Wow, seems I have been missing out on this whole discussion!

Thanks so much for the kind words BearTrprr, I actually just posted a message in reply to the "this mess" posting, which I hope will clear things up a bit.

We are now officially over the 155 men number, and I know we are all looking forward to sailing this Fall.

And thank bearbackfl, seems you did due diligence before booking! I appreciate that...


Hugs from Philly,

Chumley
(seems I can't put my online name here, but lets just say it's BearCruise on aol...!)

Now I have a real good question. We will be in San Juan Election Day November 2nd....I wonder if bars will be open that day. Any thoughts on this?

They are a US Possession but not a state, wonder if that makes a difference. Also here in the states, some allow bars to be open others not...

Thanks

I used to live in PR and if memory serves me (sometimes it doesn't ;-( ), bars aren't open on election days. Also, traffic can be quite a nightmare with election candidate's parades roaming all over... bring your own booze...
