    I have been on cruises in the last 20 years but not for quilting. The cost is high even though I know it would be great fun. So I calculate how much fabric I can buy for the cost of the cruise and go to a retreat instead. LOL. One day I would like to take one just so I can say I did. Hope we all get to go on one.

    One of my quilting friends and I are thinking about the quilting cruise to Bermuda, but haven't decided for sure yet.

    I have 3 friends that went on a quilting cruise in April and they all said they would never do it again. First of all they said they were dead tired - had to be at the class at 8:00 AM on the days they were at sea and spent the best part of the day in class - missing all the activities that they paid high price for. They worked on 3 projects and none were ones they they would have choosen (no choice) to work on - more like craft projects and of course they had to pay for all the materials. This cruise was sponsered by Baby Lock and it went out of FL - pretty sure it was Ft Lauderdale. A sewing show that sells Baby Lock took them by bus from The Villages at Lady Lake to the ship. Baby Lock did provide the sewing machines.

    I have been dreaming of a quilt cruise. Not really thinking it will happen for a few years, since I have small kids. But I would love, love, love to go. If I could find one that sounded interesting. I did look at some that didn't sound like the things you would be working on were something that interested me. But I would like to try a cruise, and my husband has no interest in them, so might as well combine one with my hobby, right?

    Not a quilting cruise, but I have gone on 3 other cruises!! I can't justify spending an extra $1000 for the quilting part and working on projects that I don't want to do!! Too many seminars and not being able to relax on the ship. You're so busy when you're in ports that I want to relax while at sea and do my own thing on my OWN time not 8am.
    Fons & Porter has a quilt cruise that they're advertising right now!

    I look at the offerings for quilting cruises in the various quilting magazines and then I read the reviews and look at the pictures. Honestly I am torn about the idea. One part of me wants to go and take classes from fabulous quilting teachers and the other part of me wants to sit in a lounge chair on the upper deck with a vampire story book and an umbrella drink.
