FURRY CRUISE FOR 2007 IS ON HOLD

THE FURRY CRUISE THIS YEAR ON HOLD TILL FOR THE TIME BEING!!!

After talking to several folks this weekend, I've come to the conculsion that its a better idea to put the cruise on hold until we can figure out an itenary that people are willing to put deposits down on. I am not cancelling the cruise at this moment, rather ditching the current itenary and will open dialogue on a new itenary that people want to do, can afford, and how to manage/ promote it so more interest is generated.

I've left a message with Cindy at Expedia not to take any reservations as this itenary will be canceled, so don't try to make a reservation at this time.

I will in the next couple of days start a dialogue with folks on what they want to do and could afford, as far as I'm concered all options are on the table.

As I said earlier I'm really sorry to have to do this, but I think its a better idea to start over from scratch  than to  try to push people to do  something that  they dont want to do.

I still want to do it I've already booked time off work. I just got in a car accident and it sapped all my extra funds.

I know you really want to go, but its not the same if only 3 or 4 people are going. This type of event is alot better if you have a somewhat larger group. If you still want to do the cruise on those dates, you're more than welcome to. I will get a dialogue going here soon and see if we can get something going that people are willing to commit to.

I'm a bit disappointed but I think work might be able to change my holiday dates if it's necessary. and you are right a big crowd is better but why didn't all the people who voted for that cruise didn't book? I know my reason and I would have been able to book before the deadline the insurance checks finally came in.

Idea!

This is my first time even hearing anything about the cruise, but I would absolutely love to go if I get a chance. I have an idea that might be helpful in getting people to join up for 2007 (or early 2008 if I am understanding this), if it has not been already thought of.

It may be too late for this one, but in a few days, as you know, Anthrocon begins. Considering it is number 1 for Furries, why not advertise there? At least tell people, give them this website, cards, fliers, a ripped piece of paper with info, anything! Out of over 2,000 Furs, I am sure you could get well over enough to make the cruise worth it. Or if you are not going to AC this year, tell someone you know who is going (IRL, from LJ, etc.) to tell others!

But it does not have to stop at AC. There are a few other popular conventions going on before December (though very few are specifically for Furs). Dragoncon, tends to have a good number of Furries. I am going to this and Anime Weekend Atlanta before December, and if you want me to, I could spread the word about the cruise to the FurFans.

Hope this helps!

I just found out about fur cruise, I would Love to go! I am sure my Girl Friend would too.

do you know how much extra it would be to fly there and stay at a hotel overnight, or if perhaps that is included in the price of the cruise....Thank you....Sounds like a BLAST!

If everyone were to spread the word around on there various chat servers, and maybe someone could get a hold of furaffinity.net and get banners put up...they could possibly help to spread the word. I think the problem is that a lot of people just don't know about it! If word would spread, it would be GREAT! ....just an idea! ....will keep in touch
