We will be aboard Royal Caribbean's "Explorer of the Seas" an amazing and large luxury cruise ship. The cruise will be 9 days in length, October 14 to October 23, 2010, in time to see the beautiful fall colors on the east coast. We will be leaving from, and returning to, the Cape Liberty Cruise Port, New Jersey. The ports of call will be: Portland, ME; Bar Harbor, ME; Saint John, NB; Halifax, NS and Boston, MA. More about the ports of call click here.

We are in the process of planning some exciting shore trips and if there are any costs involved, that will be extra, and minimal. One of the stops that's been confirmed is visiting Lucy Neatby's studio when we stop in Halifax the capital of Nova Scotia. There is another stop in Halifax that will excite knitters that is in the works and will be announced later.

During our trip we will have three at-sea days in which you can take knitting classes if you wish. We are very lucky to have Cindy Fite (visit her site)"I Love to KNIT" and me (Ana Petrova) joining us. We are currently working on our classes and we'll list them on the cruise blog when we have more information. You can sign up for these later.

We both love to knit and teach knitting techniques and you will come away with exciting new ideas and skills. Don't worry if you're a beginner or very experienced, there will be something for everyone. Between us we have many decades of knitting, you will learn tips and tricks that you may never see anywhere else.

Of course, there will be LOTS of knitting time. The ship has many lounge areas, so all you have to do is sit and relax and knit with others, or have some quiet time to yourself.

We've started an email distribution list so that we can notify everyone when there is something new to learn about the cruise.

If you'd like to be added, email Joann Conklin who is organizing all of this fun at: joanne@jconklin.com

I almost forgot to tell you. If you'd like to arrive a day or two before the cruise starts, we will be arranging a group rate at a nearby hotel. More on that later when the details have been worked out.

We hope that you will come along and join in the fun. We are very excited about this trip and very much look forward to being with "our people" KNITTERS. We plan to do everything we can to make it fun for you!

You know I will be blogging about this in the next 10 months and 4 weeks but it's Monday and I have a thousand things to do........

Hope to see you on the cruise.
