Sea Purls 2015

Group Price Extension

Sea Purls 2015

Thanks to our travel agent, Sheryl Nudds of Cruise Planners, we were able to extend our group prices and allotment of cabins through September 5, 2014. This is a 3 1/2 week extension! We know that many of you are just trying to finalize plans so we wanted to be sure to give you some extra time. That’s the good news!

The other good news is that even though our group pricing will expire in September, that does not mean you have to miss the cruise. Carnival has great pricing and as long as we can find you a cabin, we’d love to welcome you onboard.

Now here is the bad news. Once the cabins are gone, you will, so to speak, miss the boat. So act now. Email Sheryl at or call her at 972-231-9383.

Remember, we will sail from Galveston to Cozumel on the Carnival Triumph on Thursday 2/05/15 at 4 PM. We’ll have a day at sea on Friday 2/06, visit Cozumel on Saturday 2/07, have another day at sea on Sunday 2/08 and arrive back in Galveston at 8:30 Monday morning 2/9.

Pricing for the cruise is $404/person for an interior cabin; $439/person for an Oceanview room; and $534 – $554 for a balcony. These prices include taxes and port fees. All it takes to join us is to register and provide a credit card deposit of $150/person by September 5, 2014. This deposit is fully refundable until December 1, 2014. Full payment for the cruise is due December 8.

Our knitting workshop will take place during our two days at sea. This year’s project will be an easy accessory pattern that will allow you to learn a few new things but won’t disrupt your ability to socialize and enjoy your fellow knitters. We plan on two hours of workshop instruction during the morning of each day at sea and another 2 hours during the afternoons at sea for a total of eight hours of knitting instruction and assistance.

The cost of the workshop is $150.00. Each workshop participant will receive the pattern, a skein of yarn hand-dyed exclusively for Sea Purls 2015; a Sea Purls 2015 tote bag packed with some surprise goodies; and 8 hours of instruction. All you need to bring is your favorite set of needles.

In addition to simply emailing Sheryl, provided you have at least two passengers to a cabin, you may also complete a self-registration by going to Go to the “Groups” tab and select Sea Purls 2015.
