Stitch 'n Beach 4: Knitting Cruise to the Caribbean with Debbie Stoller
Mar 2 - Mar 11 2013, departing from NYC
Dear knitting friends,
I'm pleased to announce that I will once again be leading a Stitch 'n Beach knitting cruise to the Caribbean. Please read below for details on this event, and I hope to see you on board the ship!
-Debbie Stoller, Stitch 'n Bitch author
Grab your knitting buddies and hit the high seas on this luxurious knitting cruise aboard Royal Caribbean's Explorer of the Seas to the sparkling islands of the Carribbean. Featuring over 24 hours of knitting classes, workshops, and private evening events, you'll always have something fun to do on board.
Your vacation starts the moment you board the elegant ship at Cape Liberty Cruist Port, just outside of NYC. Over the next nine days, as we visit the sunny islands of the Caribbean, you’ll be able to take knitting classes in a variety of subjects, and attend special evening Stitch ‘n Bitch sessions, plus attend our private cocktail party, yarn tasting, and other events. Take as many or as few classes as you wish—your price includes all classes and all materials.
When we arrive in port, explore our exotic destinations—San Juan, St. Thomas, Samana, and Labadee—on your own, sign up for any number of shore excursions such as shopping trips, snorkeling, nature hikes, and bike rides, or just hit the beach and relax.
Back on board the ship, there will be more knitting classes on offer, or you can stroll along the Royal Promenade, try out the onboard rock-climbing wall or ice skating rink, take in a show at the Palace Theater, sip a cocktail by the pool, or take your latest project with you out on the deck and knit as you watch the world sail by. On Tuesday morning when we get back to New York cruise port, you'll arrive rested and refreshed, with a lot more knitting knowledge and most likely a few new friends as well.
From snorkeling and swimming to shopping and golf, the Caribbean is the ultimate outdoor playground. What better way to vacation than to be surrounded by white-sand beaches, turquoise waters and the most beautiful islands on earth?
