In 2011 we hosted the first LessCruise. We had 75 people join us for 4 days of fun in the sun. This event does not make us any money, it's just a fun time with like minded people.

Hi there,
I'm Lori, your travel agent for the cruise. I can give you the full details of the cruise. Give me a call at 850-235-2640. or request more information

The Boat

The Carnival Vista is big and super nice! Dozens of restaurants, bars, watersports activities and a casino. 1

What goes on?

The cruise is casual, attendees self-organize small groups for excursions and hangouts. There is lots of business, code and marketing talk around the dining table and pool lounge chairs. Each day is different, everyone is friend and looking to share and learn from each other. Most people brought significant others to share in the fun. At night we'd swap chairs at dinner tables to meet more people. It was a blast.

Allan
Hi I'm Allan,
You're welcome to bring your children, but we're leaving ours with the Grandparents. :)

Seriously What Happens?

On the last cruise we sat around chatting about business problems, we enjoyed drinks, ping pong and cigars. We talked about design over ice cream, we drove Jeeps around Mexico.

Alex
Hey I'm Alex,

Barcamp at Sea

We mentioned this cruise was about vacation but you can't stop us from talking business. On the return leg of the trip from Cozumel Mexico we'll have a Barcamp at Sea. Steve and I will be leading a round table discussion about marketing, we'd love for you to participate.

Ever been to a Barcamp? Learn more.

Further Details

The Cost

We make $0 on his adventure, we have to book dozes of rooms to even get the slights of discounts. This is not about the money for us. It's about having fun and going on an adventure with like minded people.

Room costs depend on the room type you pick, call the booking number for pricing. These prices include govt taxes & port taxes which many discount travel sites hide from the buyer. We do not make a dime from you attending, but as a group we can get a free happy hour and the Barcamp at Sea room will be free if enough people attend.

Talk to our travel agent If anyone qualifies for a lower rate such as past guest, military, etc. we’ll definitely honor the rate and book them at the lower price as long as we can still include them in the group to get credit towards your stateroom.
