Bahama Reunion Cruise Booked

Cruising:  April 22-26, 2018

Departure Port: Port Canaveral FL - The only reunion option voted on and approved by those present was for a cruise reunion in 2018, with the departure port to be determined in the near future. We have been given the opportunity to vote and the results are in. The port will be Port Canaveral, hosted by Kay Boudreaux Weaver, class of 1963 and assistance from Kit and Jeanne Wildinger.

Booking your Cruise - Kay has chosen the date of 22 April 2018 for the reunion cruise. We are now in the "Put your $150 down to hold your space" timeframe. This amount is per person double occupancy, due when you book your cruise.

Reunion Registration $25 each - You will still need to send Kay $25 each for your Cruise T-Shirt, lanyard and other reunion expenses. The T-Shirt and lanyard will help you recognize the other Falcons onboard the ship. So if you are planning to attend the 2018 JHS Reunion, please fill out this Registration Form and send it with your check or money order payable to Johnson High School Alumni Assoc. in the total amount of $25.00 per person for each person registered on this form:

REMINDER: Make your cabin reservation now to ensure a better choice of location and price. Do not wait ! ! Because prices and availability of cabins will change the longer you wait. Only $150 per person double occupancy deposit will secure your cabin on the Carnival Liberty.  Call Cook’s Travel Center at 352-291-2665.

Undecided - Talk to Don Cook of Cook's Travel; if you are not certain you will go or have not decided, Don can help you; he will tell you in advance how you can get your refund, if you decide not to go. It is to your benefit to book early. Speaking from experience, the prices will never be this low right now for our cruise. My rule of thumb for pricing a cruise: "If you take the cost of the cruise and divide by the number of days you are cruising -- anything under $100 per night is a steal!" Kay got us a bargin!

Final payment for reserved cabin is due on or before February 6, 2018. If you have questions, please contact  Kay Boudreaux Weaver at JHSinfo@sbcglobal.net.

Pre-Boarding - Kay is also negotating with a local hotel for hosting our pre-cruise stay and boarding party. We will have more information on the hotel location very soon.


First Time Cruisers 

Carnival Liberty is as relaxing or as lively as you want it to be. Whether you’re zooming down waterslides or joining a conga line by the pool, you’re in for a lively vacation on Carnival’s party-centric ships. But if you're new to cruising, these big ships can seem a little daunting when you first board. Here are some helpful tips for your first Carnival cruise that will have finding your sea legs in no time.

Download the app. 

With the Carnival HUB app, you can text your travel companions for free, check the daily schedule and deck plans, track how much you’ve spent, and get recommendations for upcoming ports of call. There's a one-time fee of $5 to download the app, but we think the convenience factor is totally worth it.

Some of the best food is actually free. 

In our opinion, the food at Guy’s Burger Joint and Blue Iguana is some of the best on board — and these poolside spots are complimentary. Just don't be surprised to find lines, since the burgers and burritos are made to order.

You don’t have to disconnect.

This isn’t your grandmother’s cruise ship. Today, the Wifi is 10 times faster than it used to be on Carnival ships, and packages are way more affordable than those ancient "75 cents per minute" rates. Best of all, if you’re most interested in checking Facebook and posting to Instagram, you can choose a social media for package for just $5 per day, and access to internet and email is just $16 more per day.

Formal night isn’t that formal.

Don’t show up decked out in a ball gown on this cruise line ... ever. These ships are generally pretty informal: Most people wear shorts and flip flops most days in the afternoon — and, to be honest, you’ll probably see some shorts on nights designated as "cruise elegant," too.

Carnival Ship the Liberty

The Carnival Ship, Liberty features three swimming pools, a giant waterslide and an outdoor movie screen. The Liberty has a lot of fun spaces and features where you can find the perfect party spot. The Bronx Sports Bar is perfect for a brew and Jeanne’s Wine Bar is the place for passengers with a love of all things vino. The ship uses lots of lights to make each space bright and inviting. Be sure to check out Rosie’s Lido restaurant with its giant Rosie the Riveter mural and the Lincoln Restaurant for its elegant chandeliers.

The Liberty has a Gross tonnage of 110,000, with passenger capacity of 2,974 and a stellar onboard crew of 1160. She was built in 2005 and recently refurbished in 2011. This ship will stop in two really fun ports: Nassau and Freeport Bahamas, providing lots of fun activities to keep our JHS 2018 Reunion fun and exciting.
