Croptopia Getaways (google for the website) has great Scrapbook/papercrafting cruises! I've been to Bermuda twice and loved it... you scrap at workshops while at sea and make projects taught by guest instructors, then do your own thing while in port - the best of both worlds!

Croptopia has a Caribbean cruise in October and an Alaskan cruise next year - details and registration on their website.

I have been to many of Croptopia's other weekend Scrapping and Papercrafting Events and Susan does an awesome job - great goody bags, top notch treatment, lots of fun and quality time... highly recommend!

Did any of you do these cruises? What did you think of them? I am trying to take my sister on one of these cruises and wonder how they are, cannot find any reviews.

Thanks Chris

How, because most scrapbookers have this problem of keeping up with all the events that need scrapbook pages to remember them by. How do you overcome this seemingly big hurdle? Here are a few tips on stressless scrapbooking.

Hi IamAlyce,

I have to be very careful what I put here because Cruise Critic is very picky about anything they think is advertising. I started doing this cruise in 2007. I had so much fun, I became a partner with the organizer. Now I own the company. Just do a Google search for our name, and you can find us easily. I am not allowed to ask you to email me off list or provide you with website info. But I just couldn't let all my competition get in their plugs without mentioning mine. LOL References are available.

Thanks!! I am going to look into it, I am soooo behind in my scrapping, and really have been wanting to do one of these. Galveston is a perfect port for me!

There are lots of scrapbook cruises just google around.

If you don't want to take one that's just Scrapbooking the RCL oasis and allure have craft rooms on board and some cool kits they give out for free and sell for very reasonable with a time to go scrap. While they only give you an hour it's not enough time to do anything but I did enjoy going to just meet fellow Scrappers.

While a scrapbook cruise sounds fun I haven't taken the plunge yet because there is so much to do on the boat and the excursions it's hard to pull away to scrap and then taking all that stuff with... Just some things to consider...

Good luck with picking the perfect cruise.

I am doing the Creative Keepsakes 1 on Oasis. They only ask you to bring adhesive, scissors, trimmer and pens. That is all. They are supplying EVERYTHING else!

Crafty Neighbor doesn't supply everything, we do ask you to bring a few tools plus whatever projects you want to work on outside of workshops. But we are also a lot cheaper than some of the other scrapbooking cruises, and we give away lots of goodies and prizes.
