DNCruise is Back and Better Than Ever!

Last year DNCruise had it’s maiden voyage and for those onboard I think we can all agree the experience was truly magical. From great presentations to fun events Patrick pulled-out all the stops to make the conference one for the history books. Well now DNCruise is back for 2011 and the agenda this year is exceptional. So what does the Chef have planned?

dncruise_mapWell, for starters, the cruise will be stopping at Frank Schilling’s house in Grand Cayman for lunch. I had to mention this first because this is definitely a incredible experience and one that I’m sure many Domainers will be looking forward to for months – I know I will!

Patrick has decided to extend the cruise by one day given the success of last year’s event and he’ll be offering over $3,000 in prizes during not one but two Game Nights! If you didn’t take part in the cruise last year then you missed-out on what was definitely one of the most intense game experiences from Taboo to Jenga! Oh and just in case you’re wondering who the ringers are in the group watch-out for Brian Gilbert and Adam Torkildson – they aren’t just serious gamers, they are REALLY good at every game you throw at them. Adam and Brian, can I be on your team this year?

Along with great speakers and fantastic destinations there will also be a snorkeling tour in Grand Cayman before we head to Frank’s for lunch. As usual the Chef has some more exciting surprises up his sleeve but you’ll have to be on the boat to experience these in person.


One of the best things about DNCruise is the price – somehow Patrick has once again hit a great price-point making the conference accessible to all levels of Domainers. The conference + room and board for an interior room without an Ocean view is just $499 and you can snag a view of the sea for just $80 more! The ship sets sail from Tampa on September 5th and I can promise all of you this will be another one for the history books.

    This looks like a great cruise, is it ok to bring along kids or adult only?

  • Elizabeth Leinster March 14, 2011, 6:01 pm

    Ummm… yes please. I would like to be there. It killed me that I couldn’t make it last year!

    We should start picking teams now. Or taking wagers. LOL!

  • IrishDomainer March 15, 2011, 6:13 pm

    You should divulge if you’re getting comped or paid to participate on the cruise, don’t you think?

      @Marcia I completely agree! I am not getting comped or paid to participate on the cruise but if you’d like to put in the good word for me I would always love a free cruise! I had a great time on the cruise last year which I paid both the conference fee and around $400 for the flight to Florida.

      I think DNCruise is one of the best deals in the conference space and has someone that’s spent over $2,000 on a single cruise just for room and board, under $600 for room, board, food, and a conference seems like the deal of the century to me!

    Morgan, I asked because I had friends tell me Patrick offered to pay their way so they’d be involved with the cruise. Glad to hear you had a good time, having paid your own way, and are unbiased in that regard.

    @ RJB…..yes kids are absolutely welcome! Our two children and my mom were there……other domainers brought their girlfriends, friends, wives, children, moms….etc. There’s stuff to occupy them while you’re in sessions. And we kept it pretty balanced so that you had free time on the ship and off while in port at the stops. My kids had a blast because there is a kids camp they can go to. If you have any questions at all feel free to email me directly as I handle the bookings.

    @Liz…we missed you last year! I hope you can come this year!

    @Boluji….maybe next year we might….we contemplated it for this year but because of the destinations the ship will stop at (providing the weather cooperates) we chose this route. 🙂

    @Morgan…thank you for the coverage!
