STITCH 'N BEACH KNITTING CRUISE TO THE CARIBBEAN
WITH DEBBIE STOLLER
FEB 24 - MARCH 5 2012
Grab your knitting buddies and hit the high seas on this luxurious knitting cruise aboard Holland America's Noordam 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 Fort Lauderale, Florida. 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 entrance to all of them!
When we arrive in port, explore our exotic destinations—Half Moon Cay, Grand Turk, Samana, Karlendijk, Willemstad, and Oranjestad—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 indulge yourself at the Greenhouse Spa & Salon, curl up with a good book at the Explorations Cafe & Library, visit the fitness center, watch a show at the Vista Lounge, 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 Sunday morning when we get back to Fort Lauderdale, you'll arrive rested and refreshed, with a lot more knitting knowledge and most likely a few new friends as well.
