Anybody ever take a scrapbooking cruise?

Hi,

I go on lots of cruises. But not a scrapbook cruise.

I take lots of pictures and get them developed on board.

Then I can crop, and do pages while they are still fresh in my mind.

I would like very much to go on a scrpbook cruise, but my dh would be borded out of his mind. :rolleyes:

We vacation together, & cruising is our passion. :D

I think it would be the ULTIMATE in entertainment! Scrapping and cruising...my two favorite things! I'm seriously thinking about cruising solo during the next year on one of the CK scrapbooking cruises. None of my scrapbooking friends can go during the times they're offered, so I've been thinking, "Why should I have to stay at home just because they can't go with me?" I'm a big girl--I can travel solo! :D

I went on a cruise on Navigator in April of 04. I was with a group of scrapbooker store owners and reps. from some big name companies- FIskars, chatterbox, MagicScraps, Mrs. Grossmans. My friends own a scrapbook shop, so I went with them. On the days we spent at sea and every evening after dinner, we were in a huge conference room having meetings, doing demos of new products,etc. I took home over 400.00 worth of free NEW products. I learned alot, got to see new products, and met alot of really nice people. The only thing is that I didn;t get to enjoy the ship one bit. As much as I enjoyed it, I would never consider doing it again. I am cruising 1/20/06 and it will be like my first cruise to enjoy. My advice is to spend a weekend or a week at a retreat, and save the cruise to enjoy with nothing else to do.

Good point, but I personally would still love to go on a scrapbooking cruise. If I have scrapbooking available, not being able to enjoy the ship wouldn't bother me because I'm not crazy about sea days anyway. The ports are my favorite part of the cruise, and I'd still get to do those, then I could scrap in the evenings and on the sea days and be perfectly happy. To each her own!! :)

I wondered about that.... As much as I LOVE scrapbooking, I think I'd be conflicted by my desire to see and do new things on board as well as hit the pool or to scrapbook. Having just gotten back from our first cruise, we did alot of activities and saw lots of shows, Im not sure where scrapbooking would fit in? They did offer some scrapbooking classes onboard but they were in the mornings we were at sea and having stayed up plenty late the nights before, Im sad I missed them, but dearly needed my sleep! I really think it would be hard to enjoy a cruise and scrapbooking at the same time! But I've never done it so hence Im no expert. ;)
