2013 Caribbean Bear Cruise February 24th - March 3rd
on the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas

In 2013, we will be traveling on one of Royal Caribbeanís newest ships, the Freedom of the Seas, the largest passenger ship ever built (by gross tonnage) from 2006 until construction of the Oasis Class ships in late 2009. Flat Screen TVs, a 3-D Theater, more bars and restaurants than on our last ship, a surfing pool, a state of the art Spa and Fitness Center, and whirlpools that hang 10 feet over the edge of the ship are only a few things this ship has to offer.

Our sailing date is Sunday, February 24. 2013, out of Cape Canaveral/Orlando, Florida, with stops in CocoCay, The Bahamas; Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas; and Phillipsburg, St. Maarten. Cruise starts at only $759 p.p., double occupancy, plus tax and gratuity. You will also receive an extra $50 On Board Credit ( OBC ) per cabin. Have you traveled with Bear Cruise USA before? Then you get an extra $25 Loyalty OBC to your cabin as well.

We will be designing some amazing shore excursions just for our group. On the planning board right now are a snorkel trip, a day on a private Island, and sunbathing on nude beaches.

You can start your vacation a few days before the cruise in Orlando, Florida, staying at the world famous Parliament House for only $66 a night plus tax, double occupancy. Please book your room directly at www.Parliamenthouse.com One night deposit is required to secure a room.
We will be organizing a Bear Day on Friday, Feb. 22. 2013, at Universalís Islands of Adventure in Orlando. If you are interested in joining us, use the reservation form to indicate so and to reserve your bus tickets. Universal does not give group discounts, so we will only be arranging for round trip bus transportation from the Parliament House. However, if you google discounted tickets for Universal, you will find many great offers online that you can book yourself, and, of course, you can also purchase tickets at the entrance gate. Please be sure to make your reservations for the bus early to secure your space.

Port Canaveral is about 55 Miles from Orlando. I will organize bus transportation for those who are interested from the Parliament House to the ship on Sunday morning. The bus ride takes about an hour and costs only $20 per person. Again, please indicate on the reservation form if you wish to purchase a ticket for the bus transfer to Port Canaveral.

Royal Caribbean also offers a transfer from Port Canaveral to the Orlando Airport when we return from cruise. Details will be available on the ship, and you can make reservations there at the guest relations desk.

Any questions? Feel free to contact Arno at 1-304 964 0568 or at bearcruiseusa@gmail.com. We look forward to your joining us on our trip to the eastern Caribbean with the bears, cubs, chubs and chasers, their friends and families. Yeap, it is the diversity of our group that makes it so special.
