The Media Research Center, publisher of NewsBusters, is joining with National Review to sponsor a post-election Caribbean cruse this November. And, if you indicate that you heard about this cruise from the “Media Research Center” when registering, you can have dinner with MRC President Brent Bozell at least once during the cruise.
Sailing November 9-16 out of Fort Lauderdale on Royal Caribbean’s Allure of the Seas, this very affordable trip (all-inclusive prices start at only $1,999 a person) will feature over forty leading conservative writers, thinkers, and strategists. Just a few of those joining the cruise:
> Former Congressman Col. Allen West
> Acclaimed historian Victor Davis Hanson
> Former US Senators Jon Kyl and Fred Thompson
> Former Governors Tim Pawlenty (MN) and Luis Fortuño (PR).
> Syndicated columnists Cal Thomas, Mona Charen and Deroy Murdock.
> NRO editors-at-large Jonah Goldberg and Kathryn Jean Lopez, as well as NR editor Rich Lowry.
You can get complete information about the trip (and book cabins) at www.nrcruise.com.
National Review Publisher Jack Fowler promises:
In addition to a great cruise (the Allure of the Seas will be visiting Nassau, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten) there are numerous NR extras and exclusives that turn an already great trip into a phenomenal conservative once-in-a-lifetime experience. Highlights of our outstanding, forthcoming voyage include:
> Dinner with MRC founder and President Brent Bozell (only if you indicate that you heard about this cruise from “Media Research Center” when registering)
> Nine scintillating seminars featuring NR’s editors and guest speakers (each panel session is usually kicked off by a fascinating one-on-one interview conducted by the talented Jay Nordlinger, John J. Miller, or another NR editor)
> Two fun-filled “Night Owl” sessions (after dinner, a little lighter; a ton of fun)
> Three revelrous pool-side cocktail receptions.
> A late-night “smoker” featuring world-class H. Upmann cigars.
> Intimate dining on two evenings (more if possible!) with guest speakers and editors.

Do you want to come but you are...single? Introverted? A widow or widower? Fearful you will be isolated in a sea of couples? Worry not. Our cruise contingents are typically 30 percent solo-flyers. I can assure you, the atmosphere, the friendliness, the camaraderie — it’s all real, all genuine, all worthwhile (and just to make sure no wallflower is left behind, on the second night of the cruise, I host a “singles” mixer just to make sure folks feel comfortable and confident).
