OK I'll bite - who the heck is Kate Gosselin and why the fuss?

I did google but not impressed :)


Trip January 10th, 2012 02:20 PM

annie, she had a reality show...she danced with the stars..and, oh, she has 8 kids....6 at one time! She is still a celebrity in her own mind....

Trackypup January 10th, 2012 02:53 PM

I cannot understand what Royal Caribbean are thinking. I'd cancel

Ron January 10th, 2012 02:53 PM

Seems RCCL must be hard pressed for business to start bookings of this sort. Maybe if this one is for real and is a hit, ( which no doubt it will be, as there are millions of people out there who would mortgage their house to cruise with a so-called " celebrity "--in her own mind as Trip said --Maybe the next one will feature Octo-mom and her brood !! ;)

This is a better option,huh? What ship though? Did I miss it?

I agree and I only know of her by googling.

They must be desperate for the business.

I'd rather go on the Preparation H hemorrhoid treatment cruise.

Take care,

Take care,

They have cruises for everyone now, even Hem-sufferers

I have to admit - this sounds like the cruise from H.E. double hockey stix. I can't imagine anyone wanting to pay money to be with that woman. I wouldn't even talk to her if she was sitting next to me on an airplane.

Are there actually people who get so caught up in reality TV that they would want to know this woman?

Doug S January 10th, 2012 04:39 PM

It's not Royal. Its a TA that put the package together, and they are upcharging it if you want to spend time with Kate. I imagine Kate gets a cut of each upcharge, and can peddle her books and junk. Any so called celeb can put together a package like this. DJs, musicians, etc, do it all the time, but I don't think its RCI at all. Others can still book at regular rates, but don't get to mix and mingle with Miss Gosselin.

This whole thread cracks me up!!:p

Where will all her kids be during this cruise? Arent they the ones who made her famous?

Moiraine January 12th, 2012 01:16 PM

H*ll no! You could not pay me.

Paul Motter January 12th, 2012 01:24 PM

Of all the people I would NOT want to cruise with...


Casey Anthony


Kanye West

I would say Kate Gooselin is right up there.

Golden1 January 13th, 2012 01:17 PM

Haha. Too funny. "Who would you not want to cruise with" could be a whole new thread!!

Royalchump January 13th, 2012 10:35 PM

I see Kate and can't wait to change the channel on the TV

Ron January 14th, 2012 05:33 PM

In a sense, you can't blame the so called " Celebs " for taking all the money the T.V networks and the entertainment industry throw at them--I personally am not a "Celeb" worshiper like millions of others are.
I don't know of any that I would walk across the room to see or have a pic taken with. Again, you can't blame them for taking the money , but on the other hand, if we, in general , weren't so enamored with these people who, as Trip said , are Celebs in their own mind, there wouldn't be so many reality shows, so much hoopla , etc as there is over these overpaid , under worked and mostly semi-intelligent people.
But, that's just my own opinion, meaningless to anyone but me! ;)
People in the Armed Forces, Police, Fire, teachers, etc. are the people who, in my humble opinion, are the true Celebrities. :-D

Mike M January 14th, 2012 05:52 PM


I don't blame them one bit. If people want to buy their shtick then more power to them. I'm just not buying it. :D

Take care,

cutiecat January 15th, 2012 12:47 AM

I would totally change my cruise and demand my money back.

momofmeg January 18th, 2012 12:03 PM

The Rolofs did this in 2007 on RCI also-so Ms KG is not the first reality star from TLC to do this.

Not that I like her or not like her because I don't know her well enough to make an opinion-but who cares? (I do think I prefer her to Kim Kadashion though-not that that is saying much in KG's favor) if not enough bite so this is a money making venture-this will be cancelled-end of story. BTW I won't be bitng-LOL!

BTW I did cruise with the Roloffs-by accident and before they were famous-a LP convention was on Marnier of the Seas in Oct. 2005-we also had a lot of red hat ladies-LOL! We have Amy on home video at the Nassau zoo during the march of the flamingos.

I don't remember seeing at all. I don't watch a lot of TV.

I used to watch TLC a lot-but the channel has really gone down the tubes-now they have a "reality" show about a spirit medium. "The LEARNING CHANNEL???????????????" Better to call it the The Channel that goes for sensationalism with dumb reality shows.

I do not think they should not promote some of these shows- one that really bothers me is the poor woman in her 40's that has had 19 children-she has also had several Cesarean sections over the recommended three considered safe-her last pregnancy her child died- I am afraid she will also die if things went wrong-with all those C- sections she has had. I also feel TLC is encouraging them to try and break the world record of that woman in South America who gave birth to 21 children. When their show first aired about 6 or 7 years ago-they had 14 children.

Surfguyxxx1 February 15th, 2012 06:27 PM

I'd go if her ex-husband was going too!:twisted:

GGBNJ130 February 18th, 2012 04:49 PM

Why don't you wanna cruise with Snooki, I live 10 minutes from Seaside Heights, i've watched them film Seasons 1, 3, and 5, Don't you wanna hear Snooki go WHAAAAAA it's the greatest thing! I hope JWOWW & Snooki come on my cruise in August! I'm already gonna fist pump into each port!

momofmeg May 2nd, 2012 02:30 PM

I wonder if it is the August 12 or 26th. One thing the prices are still high for either of the cruises in my mind, so people must not be cancelling as threatened. Not that I would go anyway-it would take at least Paul McCartney hosting a cruise to get me on a summer 7 day cruise in the Caribbean-LOL!

Surfguyxxx1 May 6th, 2012 01:07 AM

Just shoot me!

AF1 May 10th, 2012 08:15 AM

Chances are; if you were already booked on this ship, most likely you may not see her. I have been on cruises that were booked by nascar, motorcycle club, and didn't know they were there; so don't cancel your vacation just because someone or some travel agency has booked a cruise; they won't take over the ship. As for me, I will not be on this cruise.

Trackypup May 11th, 2012 11:32 AM

I believe her theme cruise has been cancelled.
