Few things make a reenactor happier than food.  This is also an excuse opportunity to collect some wonderful new cooking gear like eathenware, pewter, forest glass, tinned copper, cast iron, etc....

How these SteamPunk cruises work is that you book your own cruise at the best price that you can find like this site (Vacationstogo), COSTCO, USAA, direct from Royal Caribbean International, etc...  The contact me or one of the other organizers to "link reservation numbers."   The perks to this linking includes at least being seated together at dining but (don;t get your hopes too high) extra conference rooms, berths, onboard credit, or even rebates.   And you get to hang out with cool people.

BTW - Fort Defiance seems to need a new (thick skinned) person to take the lead for living history events there.
