    I'd love to go to a seminar or class or something with Kay Wood. But not a cruise. I went on a cruise to the Western Carribbean and I can't for the life of me, figure out when you'd have time to sew!!!! Besides, they're a lot more expensive, it seems!

    My daughter and I went on one 2 years ago. It was put together by 3 quilt shops.We didn't have any speakers. They had 2 classes, the elegant lonestar and the other class made smaller projects. It was a lot of fun and you have time to do other thing too. Of course some of the quilters stayed in the quilting room a lot more than Vicki and I did. We were making the elegant lonestar and needless to say we didn't finish the quilt on the ship.We got a lot of it done and finished up when we got home. Our cruise was on royal carribean( I'm not sure that is the way to spell that). It was a wonderful cruise.

    I also went on an Alaska inner passage cruise. Most of the work was applique and I didn't realize this would be the case. I did, however, learn some techniques that I used later but I wish I'd known that before I signed up. Did have fun sightseeing and it was really fun to go to quilt shops in Juneau and Sitka. The entertainment was very good and the food was too fabulous (gained 5 lbs in 7 days). So, it can be really fun but check to see what kind of quilting will be taught.

    I love cruises and go quite a bit. I have not tried a quilt cruise because I really like cruising and want to enjoy sight seeing, etc.

    I would do it for the Mexican Riviera or to Hawaii, because you have so many days at sea and since all the problems in Mexico with the drug issues, I would probably not go into shore. I know there is one to Hawaii out of LA in September.

    I have not done one, but maybe someday. I have been on many cruises and think that if you had one that had a lot of sea days for the classes it would be better (like a 10 day Southern Caribbean or Hawaii from CA). Most of the 7 day Caribbean ones only have 2 sea days. For that much money, you'd probably want to spend some time doing cruise stuff.

    A Quilting Cruise is one of those things on my "bucket list". I'd love it. I'm retiring at the end of May, so perhaps in the not-to-distant future?????

    I totally agree. I would rather go on a quilting retreat.
