The March 2016 cruise theme is time travel to help more reenactors attend who do not have 7+ days or SteamPunk clothes. 

Apparently some guests cannot see these links so you can just type XXXXXXX.COM  if you do not see the hotlink above.

To help folks visualize what this cruise might look like here are some photographs from the 1st and 2nd Annual SteamPunk Cruises:

The 4th Annual SteamPunk Cruise will probably have more time periods represented.  I understand that some returning cruisers (it is a very good sign when so many of us return) are working on Regency and DieselPunk among other things.   Western, ACW, Boer, and Edwardian folks barely have to try.

Although some details of the 4th Annual SteamPunk Cruise have not been finalized this far out there are tentative plans for a "military uniform day" and the Hugo authoress http://maryrobinettekowal.com/  offered to host two costume competitions.  One for linen (Regency?) and one for costumes made for curtains.

One of the high points of the SteamPunk Cruise will be the high tea at the 18th century Good Hope plantation:  http://insidejourneys.com/good-hope-great-house-plantation/  As an 18th century reenactor I have seen some marvelous period houses but this is unique and ingenious.  There is also a zipline for those less tea inclined.

The organizers have cancelled the cruise.

This is not necessarily a bad thing.  With a whole cast of closet airship pirates mutiny was inevitable.  These cruises have begun to feel like a reunion and these are some very resourceful folks.  Our first contact directly with the line has been very promising (before the weekend slowed us down) but one perk is that the cruise will be a couple hundred dollars less!

Due to the ongoing mutiny the price has dropped to $719.00/do per  http://www.smartcruiser.com/royal-caribbean/liberty-of-the-seas/mar-6-2016-7-nights/ 

Can anyone find a better rate for this ship and dates?

XOCOLATI - THE CHOCOLATE EXPERIENCE
ROATAN, HONDURAS
Make chocolate the way the Mayans did centuries ago. Your adventure begins with a guided island tour and sightseeing highlights on your drive to a cacao plantation. There, you’ll have a chance to learn how cacao trees are planted and cared for as well as how cacao pods are harvested. Get a close look at the complete lifecycle of this amazing tree. See how cacao seeds are fermented and dried by natural sunlight. Then roast, grind and make your own exquisite chocolate bars to take home. While waiting for your chocolate bars to set, join your guide for a tour through the botanical gardens, where you will see the famous Honduran mahogany, plus coffee trees, orchids, a variety of herbs and spices, tropical plants and fruit trees. After, enjoy a tropical fruit tasting in the garden in a palapa, a thatched shelter made from palm tree leaves. Plus savor a delicious traditional lunch featuring chicken, rice beans and fried plantains. RTB5
