Sign Up For Reason's First-Ever Cruise, Feb. 2011!

|

Regular readers of this site and subscribers to the print edition of Reason already know that we're shoving off on our first-ever cruise in February 2011. Get more shiver-yer-timbers details here.

Among the Reason staffers who have already been shanghaiied into participating are Matt Welch, Jacob Sullum, Ron Bailey, and Nick Gillespie.

Our special guest stars include best-selling author Matt Ridley, whose latest tome is The Rational Optimist, and Patri Friedman, the visionary behind The Seasteading Institute. More speakers will be announced soon…

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

Moderated panel sessions featuring Reason editors and guest speakers, along with plenty of discussion.
Special additional sessions hosted by our cruise partner, The Seasteading Institute.
Many chances to meet and spend time with our editors and special guest speakers.
Exclusive parties and dining with our editors and guest speakers. You will dine with your fellow Reason cruise attendees, so that you have the chance to meet many of your fellow freedom lovers.
Admission to Reason seminars and ad-hoc sessions
Admission to numerous Reason cruise private cocktail receptions.
Admission to Reason group excursions.
Port charges, taxes, fuel surcharges, and government fees.
Accommodations and all meals.

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! Click through for details or go to ReasonCruise.com!

  1. It doesn’t work without the (goddamn) hippie hair, Matt.

    1. Matt looks all ready to have his record played by Dr. Demento. Rock on.

  2. I almost hope Obama loses in 2012. I miss the days when Reason whined about piss tests and the TSA, before it became the official hipster voice of the Tea Party Patriots. Still very clever, though. Drink!

    1. being a hipster in the tea party rules.

    2. I almost hope Obama loses in 2012.

      Lol

      good one

  3. Just let us know when you get lobster girl signed on.

    1. and organic girl.

  4. It would have been more amusing if Matt Welch was wearing his vallet outfit.

    1. I left my vallet in El Segundo!

    2. I thought that was his “Isaac” outfit.

  5. Know your cruise ship pathologies.

    What are the symptoms of illness caused by noroviruses?
    The symptoms of norovirus illness usually include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and some stomach cramping. Sometimes people also have a low-grade fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, and a general sense of tiredness. The illness often begins suddenly, and the infected person may feel very sick. In most people the illness is self-limiting, with symptoms lasting for about 1 or 2 days. In general, diarrhea is more common in children and vomiting is more common in adults.

  6. Is STEVE SMITH still going to be there?

  7. I may go on this, my apolitical wife (who refuses to even watch the news) was surprisingly open to the idea.

  8. Is it going to be as much of a sausage-fest as these boards are?

    I mean, I’m cool with that. Are any of you single and attractive?

  9. BTW, Ridley’s book is fucking awesome. I highly recommend it. I’m buying copies for friends and family.

  10. Is this a cruise ship where you eat 24 hours a day and lie around like bloated carp?

    Or the one where you screw 24 hours a day like jackals in heat?

    Inquiring minds need to know in order to pack appropriately.

  11. Are you bringing the guitar, Matt?

    1. Depends on if it will attract or repel more cruisers! Nah, I’ll bring it.

      1. Can I go all John Belushi on you?

        1. Only if you do it during the “Minutemen” set.

  12. I’d go, but Reason keeps trying to put my industry out of business. (See KMW post above.) I’d better conserve cash.

    1. They keep bumping the post, CN. You’ll need to be more specific.

  13. Hahahaha, jolly well done.

  14. Among the Reason staffers who have already been shanghaiied into participating are Matt Welch, Jacob Sullum, Ron Bailey, and Nick Gillespie.

    Shouldn’t that be “Ron ‘Danger’ Bailey”?

  15. Once again, as I won’t be going anywhere near your little slug-soaked barge, I am available to watch Hit & Run for you while you’re away. I can muster a few scathing posts (and even fire off some thin-skinned rebuttals to commenters) to keep things going here. Warty has offered to pitch in as well.

    1. “Warty has offered to pitch in as well”
      I am not into gay porno. NTTIAWWT

  16. Patri’s not much of a visionary. He’s just rehashing the Oceania Project from the 1990s.

  17. Are you still trying to sell this puppy? Offer an incentive that appeals to your audience…Looks like Matt has a very talented mouth 🙂

  18. Dude that makes a lot of sense man

    Lou
    http://www.web-anonymity.mx.tc

    1. Will anon-bot get a top-shelf stateroom?

  19. Is the poop deck what I think it is?

  20. Is the Reason T-shirt girl going to be there?

  21. Wow, that looks like its gonna be a lot of fun man.

    Lou
    http://www.web-anonymity.mx.tc

  22. Will Weigel the Libertarian be present?

    1. You better fucking believe I will be there. I will be attempting to explain how I managed to remain employed by Reason all while advocating for the election of the most statist president in the history of the US.

      The fact that I am about as libertarian as Tom Harkin really makes the rest of Reason’s staff look pretty bad, doesn’t it?

      1. I will be attempting to explain how I managed to remain employed by Reason all while advocating for the election of the most statist president in the history of the US.

        Cool! Maybe you, Tim Cavanaugh, and Ron Bailey can have a panel discussion.

  23. Aishika Chakraborty spends Christian Louboutin Pumps in the enchanting environs of Santiniketan and says its christian louboutin remain undiminished ‘Besides the winter fair and spring festival, there is nothing much to see there. Palash and simul trees have just shed their blooms, and the monsoon cloud is nowhere near the christian louboutin sale. Blazing winds will greet you at Jhapater Dhal as the terrain onwards turns parched christian shoes and arid.’

  24. i like best-selling author Matt Ridley. im his honest reader. lol

  25. We are a leading wholesale trader for wholesale jewelry including imitation jewelry and fashion jewelry.
