Rates are based on double occupancy. Single rate availability and rates will be included as an option if applicable. Please note that NACTA members have priority over non-members and that all cruise and land-based seminars are offered to NACTA members before non-members.
In an effort to accommodate our growing membership and each individual member's desire to experience this member benefit, we will be monitoring the number of cruises that an applicant has sailed in the past few years. We have a limited number of sailings and cabins and want to be sure that all of our members have ample opportunity to experience these programs. If you have sailed many times with NACTA in the past few years, we may be contacting you to advise you of a possible waitlist situation based on availability. We appreciate your understanding and feel that this is a fair policy.
