September 10 - 20, 2017
Holland America ms Zuiderdam
Only 24 spaces available . . . 7 spaces reserved already!

I have had numerous requests to do an East Coast Bead Cruise, and specific requests for the beautiful fall colors cruise. So here it is! You can thank Marcia Balonis for getting me to organize this! Click here for more details.

We will be beading while we're at sea. This has more port days than a lot of cruises so we really only have two full days at sea or scenic cruising. So we will be doing more evening beading after coming back to the ship. Click here for to see the itinerary and ship details on the Holland America website.

I will be looking into a pre-cruise excursion in New York, though we don't have to be on board until 7 pm so if you can fly in and board the ship on September 10, that would be the best.

March 24 - April 8, 2018

Holland America - ms Westerdam

We are travelling EAST TO WEST this time! This time we GAIN time as we travel through the canal versus losing it! Different stops from the last bead cruise, three new ports!
Get away from the cold and rain, travel to where it's warm!
Click here for more details.

Now is the time to reserve your cabin. Balconys book quickly even this far out. Your deposit is 100% refundable until 12/31/17! Click here to view the itinerary and ship details at Holland Americas website..

Click here to see current class choices. NOTE: there will be many new classes added before final choices need to be made for this cruise. What's shown is will be different by the final project choice time.

You don't have to be a beader to come along, any person who is into hand crafts, knitting, embroidery etc. Come along as an Artisan Companion, or if you have a bunch of UFO bead projects, bring them along instead of purchasing the Beaders Package. For the non-crafter companions, there is no additional fees other than your cruise price.
