Ran into WooHoo and SoccerTiki last night at the Royal Hawaiian and we got to talking about cruises. As you all may already know, WooHoo is a travel agent. We thought it would be awesome to get a bunch of TCers together and take over a ship and PARTY!
So would anyone be interested? We could do a 4 dayer out of San Pedro that just hops to Catalina and Ensenada. Or if anyone's really into it, the 7 day out of San Pedro to Mexico (I beleive it's Cabo, Mazatlan and Puerto?) or (WooHoo, you'll know this) I heard there would be an 8 day out of san Diego to Mexico that includes Ixtapa/Zihuateno. My family usually does a New Years Cruise and parties for 4 days straight-that's pretty cool. But we could whenever-the sooner the better!!
I can just see us now, the rum flowing and the rythyms playing as the sun sets. Theme nights! Forget formal night! We'll do Fez and bark-cloth gown night! Pirates and wenches, Island of Bikini night, Tarzan and Jane, Archeoligist and native girl...etc...
Party all night long and no worries about driving home!
Shop, shop, shop. Eat, eat, eat. DRINK DRINK DRINK.
Well? Yous guys in? Let us know!

I think we would be into a 3-day cruise. Couple questions from someone who hasn't done much of the cruise thing, what would something like this cost and would kids be there or do we need to consider babysitting options also.

Sounds like a great idea and would love to see this take off!

We always bring the kidlettes. The younger ones go to Camp Carnival. The older ones hang out at the arcade, pool and ice cream/pizza spot. We make them check in with us every couple of hours. They have the camp for evenings too, they call them "sleep overs" and they can stay almost the entire night (If you forget where you put them!). My girls are now 11 and 15, they have made a lot of friends over the years (been cruising for all their lives)that they keep in touch with and even try to set up all the parents to take the same cruises!
I'm positive WooHoo can get some sweet rates! Usually, for the 3 day, I pay around $250.00 (including tax and port fees).
I kinda like the one that goes to Catalina, too. But it's Mon to Fri and you miss work. Maybe latter!
This would be a great start and beats one night at a bar!!
Happy Day!!

Wow. 125 views and no one wants to go? Well, I guess I'll just have to smuggle enough rum on board for WooHoo, SoccerTiki, Netty and and the Mr.

This is a great idea! The 3 day works best for us. The mister and I just got back from a 7 day cruise from Tampa and he's ready to go again. Let me know when to pack my bags.

Wow, a tiki cruise! The greatest idea since sliced bread! Unfortunately, we're on the East Coast and book cruises that sail out of our hometown (NYC). Still, with enough notice, we might be able to drop in on my wife's sister in the Bay Area and just happen to hook up with a nice, well-stocked ship -full of tikiphiles! Sad to say, I've never had a decent mai tai on a cruise ship, but even an iffy one tastes great in a deckchair with Martin Denny on the headphones...)

Would love to do tiki cruises out of East Coast, as well. I'm usually going out of Miami to Carib.
I agree with the quality of drinks on board. This is why we smuggle our own mix and booze on board. We buy the first drink in a "keepsake" glass and just reuse it w/ our own good stuff. I have also had success in getting the bartenders to let me tell them exactly how I want it and with what. They are good natured and one actually allowed me to go behind a squeeze oranges! But it's cheaper to bring your own!

OK... I'm bored out of my skull. The whole Domestic Goddess thing is just not doing it for me. If I have to shuttle one more party of tutu'd girls to ballet or scrape one more wad of gum off my couch, I'm gonna go friggin postal. Don't get me wrong, I love the lil self absorbed lurches, but I need a break.

SO... I'm trying to set up a cruise to just get away a bit. Anyone interested? I need a little ME time. So if anyone's into hedonistic, rum swilling, dance all night, inappropriate behavior, by all means, welcome aboard!

I'm looking into the one out of LA, 3 or 4 day down to Mexico. It's not about the destination, it's about the RIDE getting THERE. Wink wink. Savy?

More info to follow.

I haven't been on a cruise in a while. I've done a couple of 3 day bahama and a 4 day Mexican Riviera cruises. I got sea sick on the 4th day, I don't want to push my luck, so a 3 day cruise is plenty for me. I'm all over this.

WHAT! NO CRUISE TO HAWAII PLANNED!!

How about departing from the Port of San Francisco down to SoCal and on to Mexico?

Mrs.Mojo and I Love going to Mexico....warm and tropical like da islands put less expensive!

I spend all my money on drinking on the cruise ships anyhow....I sure would rather do it with TCers!

IMPORTANT NOTE HERE THOUGH: If we, (TC), were to plan a cruise to anywhere we must take along Martin from Forbidden Island....the drinks on board most, (ALL the ones I've been on), cruises SUCK and they are WAY over priced! Scratch that thought....If Martin were to go there wouldn't be enough room aboard the ship for ALL THE LIMES!!!

A cruise out of SF would be more of a possibility for me and mine.
Yeah, Martin should be coerced to mix. Jim could also stand in for him.

MexicanTiki and I would be interested in a SoCal cruise, as long as you plan it during warm weather season. We desert rats don't take too well to cold.
