I’m inviting our most enthusiastic Rebel viewers to join us on a week-long Caribbean cruise! We’ve booked 120 cabins on Holland America’s Nieuw Amsterdam, sailing out of Florida on November 20, 2016.
If you have never been on a Caribbean cruise before you’re in for a treat! The scenery is gorgeous, the ports are interesting and historical and the ship’s amenities are top of the line.
And it’s the Caribbean in winter!
In addition to all of the regular fun of a cruise, we’re organizing special Rebel-only events, including private welcome and farewell cocktail receptions, nightly dinners with your fellow Rebel enthusiasts and a special Rebel celebrity guest at your table. And then there’s the heart of our Rebel cruise: fascinating panel discussions with our Rebel contributors where you can interact with them on all the hot topics of the day.
That’s the formal part. But there will be countless informal opportunities to connect with your favourite Rebel personalities throughout the week, whether it’s over breakfast, on a shore excursion, or just on deck getting some sun! And since none of our Rebel events are scheduled for when the ship is in a port, no-one will be limited in their ability to go exploring.
It’s the perfect vacation for Rebel enthusiasts: interesting talks, great food, gorgeous views and a lot of fun. Come join us on the Rebel Cruise!Ezra Levant
