Future Reunions



2018    Cruise leaving from Port Canaveral, Fl.
April 15




Joe Bilak will be hosting our reunion

     Easter in 2018 is April 1st.
    April 15, 2018 will be our cruise date leaving from Port Canaveral, Fl.   Royal Caribbean's "Oasis of the Seas" is a 5,000 to 6,000 passenger ship with 2,150 crew to serve you. Even with the size of the ship, everything flows. It offers adult and work out pools as well as events accommodating teens, tweens and nursery kids.
    The current Broadway Show is "Cats". Do not know what it will be in 2018. I have seen the "Chicago" production. It was better than the show on Broadway with BB Neworth. There is an ice rink and a Show on Ice. There is an Aqua Theater, zip line, golf, two rock climbing walls, many bars and lounges as well as comedy clubs, offering family and adult entertainment. A 3D theater is also included. DreamWorks offers daily character shows and parades on Main Street. There is standard or optional dining for a reasonable upcharge. You can dine at a steakhouse grill, gourmet Italian, Chinese or Japanese Hibachi, which would be extra. There is Johnny Rockets, Pizza Places, Mexicali, and Crab house, which is included.       Inside cabins start at $685.00, Outside is $675.00, Balcony is $753.00, $1499.00 for Deluxe. Balconies can overlook Central Park or the ocean. Taxes and port charges are additional. Cabins vary in size, most are about 172 sq.ft.   Ports of call are Labadee, Haiti, Falmouth, Jamaica and Cozumel, Mexico. You can prestay or extend your vacation to include NASA at Canaveral, new NASCAR exhibit and tour of the Speedway or do a couple of laps. Orlando attractions are about an hour and a half away.
    You can fly in to Orlando, Daytona Beach or Jacksonville airports. Transportation, tours and flights can be handled through the cruise line.
    Even though it is in 2018, we still need to know how many people plan to attend in order to get the best rates and perks, for our group. Pricing depends on guest numbers, age, past or new cruiser, state of residency and military status.   Hope to start hearing from you soon to get the ball rolling. You can see the ship and amenities at the RCCL website.

    We “Can Do “this. It seems right that our Seabee group will be going to sea.
