Default 5 Day Hobby Cruise...read

I'm curious about getting a 5 day cruise onboard a luxury ship, 5 days of r/c racing action. I've already talked to a cruise line and this is something they would consider if their was intrest enough. Who would be interested? I know the Snowbirds are a tradition in Orlando, but wouldn't it be interesting if they did the Snowbirds on a ship! Just and Idea.

Yeah, same here. How sweet would that be. I'm not too sure what cruise rates are but I think it would be kind of expensive with airfare or gas to get to the port, but what evs it would still be sweet.

i personally have never been on a cruise ship, do they rock or sway a little, that would make for some interesting driving.

Don't know about that, but I've heard that once in awhile they sink.

one downside to it, the wife wouldn't let you go without her. That could be a way to make her like R/C if she doesn't already!

IDEA OF THE MONTH....!

Think of R/C Racing as an on board entertainment venue.... like a side show for the guests to watch.... Then we "Racers" get on board for free... you know.... as a form of entertainment.... yea... THAT'S THE TICKET!

I know serveral people have looked into this over the years, but no one has made it work yet. I think Scotty was even envolved in talks with someone.
