PODCAST CRUISE / What's the cruise all about?

PODCAST CRUISE will take place from February 11 to 16, 2017, leaving out of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  PODCAST CRUISE will combine some of the world’s top podcast personalities with an elite group of attendees, as they join forces to discuss emerging strategies, latest trends, and best practices that will help you create, grow, and monetize your podcast.  Whether you’re just getting started, you're trying to get better, or you are ready to take a giant leap, the PODCAST CRUISE is for you.

The schedules include pointed keynote presentations, small group breakout sessions, and expert panels, all in a dynamic, community-based setting.  Conventional thought will be challenged, new ways of thinking will emerge, and you will leave with your head and notebook full of action items and ideas to achieve even greater success. With plenty of networking opportunities, it is the perfect place to build a network, find partners, generate new ideas, and learn.  Not to mention have a great time!

Registration is limited to the first 40 attendees to ensure they get the full benefit of this exclusive gathering. Come to PODCAST CRUISE and discover how to thrive as a podcaster

ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS

All Podcast Cruise attendees must be 18 years of age or older. Children from the ages of 12 to 17 may attend if accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Children aged 11 and under are welcome aboard ship, but cannot attend the Podcast Cruise sessions. Child care and age-appropriate curriculum is available through Royal Caribbean's Adventure Ocean® youth program.

All attendees, attendee guests, and accompanied minors must have a valid passport. Getting onto the ship? You need a passport!

FAMILY RATES
There are plenty of things to do on the cruise ship besides attend the Podcast Cruise. If you'd like to bring a significant other or family member of any age, it's between $609 and $884, depending on cabin type. And if the family member is between the ages of 12 and 17, and has an interest in podcasting, they can attend the conference portion with you! If you want to bring more than three family members on the cruise, we'll put you in touch with our cruise manager who can help you with pricing and any other arrangements.

ACCESSIBILITY

The access policy of Writing Excuses follows the Social Model of Disability. This regards barriers to the full participation of disabled people as the fault of society (and more immediately we as the organizers), not the 'fault' of the person with a disability. We further reject any negative value placed on a person because of their disability, or indeed on their disability. Disability isn't good or bad, it just is. Please respect our disabled members by engaging in neither negative stereotyping (eg 'If I was you I'd kill myself' or 'I'd rather be dead than in a wheelchair), nor false pity ("I'll pray for you to be cured')' - many disabled people do not want to be cured and regard their disability is a fundamental part of their identity.

Additionally, please note that person first language ("person with disability") is not the universally preferred form of address for disabled people. Many prefer the Social Model and 'disabled person'. Please treat the appropriate form of address for disabled people as you would treat preferred pronoun usage, by asking for their preferred form of address and using it.

We picked Royal Carribean because their ships are designed to accommodate all of our guests, including people with mobility, hearing, and visual disabilities. Read more about the accommodations that are available. In addition, when you fill out the registration form, please let the Podcast Cruise staff know about any accommodations you require. 


FAQs

Q: What does "double occupancy" mean?
A: It means that the price is for half of a room. You'll have a roommate. This can be a friend that you arrange to room with ahead of time, it can be a family member, or it can be another Podcast Cruise attendee. They will also need to register on this page for the same type room, either with a conference package, or with a Family add-on.

Q: Can I get a private room?
A: Yes, but it will cost more. When you register, at the bottom of the form select "Single Occupancy" from the "additional items."

Private room prices:

  • Standard Interior Stateroom
    $1109 + $609 = $1718

  • Ocean View Exterior Stateroom
    $1159 + $659 = $1818

  • Oceanview with Balcony
    $1384 + $884 = $2268

Q. What if I don't have a passport yet?
A. All guests must have a valid passport to cruise. If you do not have one yet, but are ordering one, you may put "Passport on order" in the passport field. By doing so, you acknowledge that it is your responsibility to acquire a passport before cruising and that you cannot board the ship without one. Podcast Cruise is in no way responsible if your passport does not arrive before cruise time.

Q: How big is the ship?
A: The Independence of the Seas holds 4370 guests, of which we'll be a small percentage. The Podcast Cruise has its own dedicated spaces, ours alone 24 hours a day, for workshops, mastermine sessions, panels, keynote talks, and more. While the ship is large, it will be similar to being at a convention in a very nice hotel. You'll know your tribe, you'll know where to find them, and you'll have places to hide from all the scary podcasting people.

Q: How big is the event?
A: We are capping the event at 40 registrations. As mentioned above, the speakers will be hosting different attendees at dinner each night, and participating in other activities in order to make themselves accessible to each and every one of the attendees.

Q: Is the cruise refundable?
A: While we cannot offer full refunds, we're happy to work with you up until October 5 to transfer your booked ticket to another cruiser.

If the cruise for some reason does not take place, ALL REFUNDS AND REGISTRATIONS PURCHASED WILL BE REFUNDED IN FULL.

Q. Are there any additional fees?
A: The price of your cruise includes: 

  • The Podcast Cruise workshops and seminars (for conference attendees)
  • Ship accommodations
  • Ocean transportation
  • Gratuities
  • Most meals onboard (To be clear, it is possible to have all of your meals in venues that are covered.)
