It’s full steam ahead for the 2020 Far Western District Fall Convention Cruise aboard the Carnival Imagination, leaving Long Beach on Thursday, October 8 and returning Sunday, October 11. Folks from all over the country are buzzing about this unprecedented event, and we’re anticipating that there will be a large contingent of barbershop enthusiasts coming from near and far to join us for what is sure to be the biggest party ever.
In addition to our quartet and chorus contests, and other convention activities, the ship provides a host of activities for all ages, with stage shows, live entertainment, comedy acts, dancing, movies, casino, mini-golf, fitness center, and more. You can lounge by the pool or take a splash on the water slide, and for the ultimate in relaxation you can pamper yourself with a trip to the spa. There are numerous activities for kids, and a serenity adult-only retreat for those who prefer to enjoy some quiet time.
Be a part of history! In addition to being on the first-ever district convention at sea, you will also be attending first-ever INTERNATIONAL district convention! People often refer to the FWD Fall Convention as the "Mini-International" ... this time we mean it quite literally!
Unlike hotels, cruise ships book far in advance. Also unlike hotels, prices are PER PERSON, not per room; this is because amenities and all meals are included. The Far Western District has locked in group pricing on 500 cabins based on double occupancy. For those on a budget, you can book for three or even four to share a cabin. In order to secure your passage, you need to make your booking NOW and secure it with a fully refundable deposit.
Booking NOW is especially true for those who require ambulatory accessible accommodations, as there are a limited number of cabins available.
The amount of the deposit varies by the type of cabin and the number of persons. And remember, the total price includes accommodations, all meals, amenities, cruise fare, taxes, port fees and gratuities. Once your refundable deposit is made, you can pay the rest on installments, so by the time you come on board it will be a done deal, so you can relax and have fun on the cruise and convention.
The first 500 cabins booked will receive a complimentary bottle of wine and an invitation to a cocktail party (age permitting), hosted by the cruise line. We are also coming up with some additional prizes for the first to pay their fare in full.
