GothCruise 11 Dance Events!

This year's dance events are scheduled!

Jules Verne’s Twas the Night Before Christmas Formal Ball:
Monday Dec 15th - 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm
The Labyrinth Night Club

What would the holidays look like if Jules Verne wrote “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” if H.G. Wells penned “A Christmas Carol,” Mary Shelly authored “Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer” or Fritz Lang directed “A Charlie Brown Christmas?” While you're pondering that, dress in your Neo-Victorian holiday finest and have a grand time at this year’s GothCruise formal.

“This One Goes to 11” Masquerade:
Friday Dec 19th 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm
The Labyrinth Night Club

Two words: Metal. Start growing your hair, break out your Metallica T-shirts, your spandex tights and your leather vest. Come dressed as your favorite metal head, or as you are. (If you’re a metal head already, you’re all set.) One thing for sure: this is going to be loud.

See you on board!



OK. So I had this great idea to send out GothCruise holiday cards to folks who've cruised with us over the past 5 years. Then, as I was going through the passenger lists, I came to the realization that I don't have everyone's current mailing address because some of you roomed with people who don't live with you and some of you moved. So now I have 110 cards begging to be mailed and a dubious address list.

SO, if you would like to get a holiday card with a nifty GothCruise design on it (suitable for framing*), please EMAIL ME at Don't put your address in the comments unless you want the world to see it. Also, if you are not interested in receiving a card, you can email that to me, too.


* That is, if you're the kind of person who frames cards.
