Over the years I have had many conversations with Actors & Extras on set about my cruise experiences, and just my overall love for cruising. There is just something amazing about standing on the vacant top deck at night looking out into the vast expanse, seeing nothing on the horizon, but the moon reflecting on the water and hearing the soft sound of waves crashing against the ship. It's so peaceful. I remember one night I was standing out there in the late hours of the night, and off in the distance I could see a thunderstorm. It was beautiful where I was, but I could see the lightening crackeling across the sky. The clouds illuminated with each bolt. So beautiful! And you might ask, Where was everyone else on the ship? Good question... because when it gets late it seems the ship kinda clears out (except maybe the Casino & the Kareoke bar). Other than that I think most people actually head to their cabins. It's the perfect time to explore and feel like you are on a voyage by yourself! :)
I've taken several cruises with my family and have always thought it would be a new experience to go on a group cruise, so I began researching specific group cruises that I would like to be a part of, and realized they are somewhat pricey, considering I am taking a 12-day Eurpoean cruise for the same price as some of these group cruises! So I decided to see about organizing something like this myself, and how fun would it be to actually KNOW alot of these fellow cruisers! So hence the Katz Kasting Group Cruise idea was born!
How many of you have always thought of taking a cruise, but either thought it was too expensive, or just didn't want to go by yourself? Or perhaps you are a seasoned cruiser and would just like to explore a new experience on a group cruise.
Whatever the case may be, I hope that you will join my friend Adrienne & I on this group cruise! We are inviting some of our friends as well, and so you may feel free to invite yours. The more the merrier!
I was thinking of having a Meet & Greet on the first ship day after the ship sails, or before... so we can meet everyone we don't know and who knows what new friendships you may create out of the group!
So if you think you might be interested in going, I invite you to join our Facebook Group so that you can ask questions, and perhaps find a room mate (if you need one) or excursion partner.
I spent a bit of time getting together the page on the website to answer more basic questions, so please take time to read the entire page if you have never cruised before. It will definitely give you a clearer picture of what to expect.
I will be posting more about the cruise later.
Deadline.... I don' t know.... soon as you can. The deposit to lock in your room rate is $200 per person. You pay the rest out in increments or at one payment later on. I do know that the prices quoted won't last long, doesn't mean you have to book immediately, but you may be paying a little bit more, as through summer the prices usually rise, and to be a part of the group you must have a full paid booking by Aug 8. Or you will be cruising on your own with no group perks!
So if you are interested, EMAIL ME ASAP and let me know when you would be able to pay your deposit. You won't pay it to me, but to my PVP from Carnival when he books your room.
See ya on board!!
