Here's what you'll get on the Reason cruise:

Moderated panel sessions featuring Reason editors and guest speakers, along with plenty of discussion.

We set sail from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on January 30 next year and return, god willing, February 6, after visiting exotic ports of call in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Northern Antilles. We'll be shipping out on Celebrity Cruise's Solstice, a big mother of a ship every bit as unsinkable as the Titanic and James Cameron's career put together. Double occupancy cabins start at around $1,500 per person and spaces are limited.

So come aboard, we're expecting you! Go to ReasonCruise.com for details.

  • You're hosting a cruise?||

    Lucky I noticed! I wondered if you were ever going to get around to writing about saving Cleveland?

  • The Bron||

    Cleveland is scheduled to implode sometime later this week.

  • ||

    Now that Lebron's gone, all hope is lost.

  • Spiny Norman||

    But they still have a mighty fine orchestra, from what I hear.

  • Steven Smith||

    Another Special Guest Star: Me.

  • Warty||

    You're all 2009, ape-man. Get a new shtick.

  • ||

    And have Suki wake everyone up at 5am, yelling "GOOD MORNING REASON!!!!" through everyone's door?

    Pass. (And I don't have the money)

  • Suki||

    +1

  • -||

    Libertarians will be a tiny minority of passengers aboard this cruise. Think of a large shopping mall, but with sea sickness.

  • Max||

    Advertize it as the Ship of Fools, and they will come.

  • So ||

    you're going?

  • ||

    What's happening with the waterworld convergence in the Sacramento Delta later this month?

  • ||

    I already have fantastical images of every commenter here in my mind. Seeing them all in the real world would ruin that.

    By the way, the image on that video is not a strong selling point. No crustacean smooching side boob.

  • TallDave||

    I already have fantastical images of every commenter here in my mind.

    Please elaborate.

  • ||

    ...is that CHarlie Rangel at the end there?

  • The Gobbler||

    Will there be goats?

  • Save the goats||

    The Gobbler|7.12.10 @ 2:00PM|#
    It's you I wanna fuck, goat. You. Long, hard, slow, fast, day and night. In your mouth, in your vagina, in your ass and then your mouth again. Then it's right back to the very beginning for another whirl.

    So come here ya little minx!

  • The Gobbler||

    Ha, ha, ha!

    I remember that!

  • Tim||

    Reason contributors? Puh-Lease! No offense but invite some porn stars and feisty freedom loving prostitutes and then get back to us.

  • Tim's mommy||

    Dear, porn stars and prostitutes want to be paid in cash. I don't think your allowance will cover it.

  • Tim||

    I've been stealing change from your purse for the last 54 years...

  • Tim's mommy||

    That's why my birth control pills disappeared? No wonder you have moobs!

  • Tim||

    Get off the phone ma, I'm on the internet!

  • Tim's mommy||

    just like your daddy. He liked the internet so much, he would forget to wear his pants too!

  • ||

    Stop dancing around the Ridley quote, and change your slogan to "The Reason Cruise: Where Your Ideas Can Have Sex, but You Personally Probably Won't, and Based on the Quality of Your Comments, the Offspring of Our Ideas Will Probably Be a Misbegotten, Maladapted, Short-Lived Monstrosity."

    You know, when a mainstream rag like The Economist starts sounding off about America's love affair with imprisonment, you know its gone too far.

  • Amakudari||

    The Economist has a decent history of half-heartedly promoting some libertarian views, as long they're amenable to British classists (which of course makes any American social problem game).

  • Amakudari||

    Also, better link.

  • Slap the Enlightened!||

    Q: What do you call a ship full of cosmotarians hitting an iceberg?

    A: A good start.

  • -||

    Not many icebergs in the Caribbean.

  • Slap the Enlightened!||

    I think in this case, we can safely credit that to market failure. ;)

  • Nash||

    Well there would be if it wasn't for.....Global Warming!!!!

  • Nash||

    Well there would be if it wasn't for.....Global Warming!!!!

  • Mike M.||

    Will the famed leather jacket be coming on board?

  • Lloyd||

    A finer use of Eurotax $ subsidizing a chosen rent paying industry I can not imagine.

  • ||

    I just noticed that the guy in the chair on the beach is NY Congressman Charles Rangel.. Made my day!

  • TallDave||

    Still some good Sky Suites left. From what I've read, the ones that aren't under the bar area are better if you plan on sleeping.

    Wife's off picking up a new passport... again. Don't know how she keeps losing it.

  • TallDave||

    BTW there's a great Excel doc over at cruisecritics.com that has reviews of most of the cabins on the Solstice.

  • Franklin Harris||

    Where's Charo?

    Well played, but still not quite as good as this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SWyxZR69CI0

  • ||

    Well, let's give credit where credit is due: SNL did a bit mashing up Star Trek and Love Boat. Oh, and the lyrics are mine. SNL can't write shit for lyrical parodies.

  • ||

    I can't help but notice that the lineup is all dudes. Is this one of THOSE kinds of cruises?

  • -||

    Sausage will be served.

  • ||

    I do a great Charlie Rangel imitation. Invite me!

  • george||

    im pretty certain this was just a plan by reason to get a huge group discount so they could have a company vacation

  • cheap watches||

    you can find whatever watch you want on my name

  • ||

    Will there be any women other than the ghost of Rand? She might show because at least she can dissolve out of the clutches of the cellar dwellers.

  • Spiny Norman||

    ...after visiting exotic ports of call in Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the Northern Antilles.

    No Havana?

  • -||

    Relax. There are cheap hookers on those other islands.

  • ratfucker||

    Looks like the Whitest Kids U Know, only 15 years older.

  • ratfucker||

    Invite Alan Simpson and 310 million tits.

  • ||

    Using Charlie Rangel's FUPA as a selling point is false advertising. Effective, to be sure, but shockingly unethical.

  • fendibags||

    And have Suki wake everyone up at 5am, yelling "GOOD MORNING REASON!!!!" through everyone's door?

  • Suki||

  • burberry scarf||

    BTW there's a great Excel doc over at cruisecritics.com that has reviews of most of the cabins on the Solstice.

  • bags||

    has reviews of most of the cabins on the Solstice.

  • Tanya||

    Sadly, I can't afford it. 5-7 years, mayhaps. I do love the Charlie Rangel angle, though.

  • ||

    Sounds pretty reasonable to me dude. Wow.
