Other things to know and consider...

  • ANYONE CAN CRUISE WITH US- invite your famly and friends.  The more the merrier!  If you do not scrapbook, you can still get in on this awesome special cruise, take advantage of this special pricing and hang out with us- minus the scrapbooking part.  Be part of our group,  and get all the extra perks as crusiing with a group. Just register as part of our group and on the registration for, mark that you are cruising ONLY!  You will not have to pay the scrapbooking fee!
  • In order to go to our cocktail parties, and special events, you will need to register through this site and use our travel agent.  In order to secure the scrapbooking room, we need to have a certain amount of cabins booked to secure the scrapbooking room.
  • Each person needs to register INDIVIDUALLY through this site.  For example if you are bringing your husband, and you register putting him down as your cabin mate, he will STILL need to register individually as well.  I need of his information as well as your information.  
  • The cabin prices are quoted with two people in a room.  If you do not have a friend to room with, contact me and I will try to find you a cabin mate to share a room with.   We always have single scrapbookers looking for someone to cruise with!
  • Tina's cruises usually sell out in a few days.  We have very limited spaces- so register EARLY to avoid missing the fun ship!  Once the spaces are sold, I will start a waiting list.  FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE!  I anticipate selling out quickly!

Know someone who does not scrapbook but wants to cruise- then by all means INVITE them!  They can be included in all of our fun- minus the scrapbooking!
