SteamPunk Cruise: Now, here is a cruise that truly is a
Themetrip. Steampunkcruise has teamed up with Royal Caribbean Cruise line to bring you Steampunk at Sea. Steampunk can sometimes be described as an 19th century British Victorian era sub-genre, with emphasis on science fiction, and often includes steam-powered machinery. According to their website the events will include activities such as:
"The Steampunk Duchess Of Nola High Seas Ball, the Chrononauts Parade, as well as on-board workshops and performances from well-known Steampunk writers, speakers, artists and musicians, poolside Victorian bathing suit competition, high-tea gatherings and late night great mad scientist monologue competitions". Whew. With all that action I need to take a breath.
Steampunk authors G.D. Falksen is scheduled to be in attendance. So, put on your costume and step back in time. Setting sail April 25-May 3rd, 2015 in Bayonne, New Jersey on the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line.
A description straight from their website. "Imagine 8 nights aboard Royal Caribbean’s fair vessel, The Independence of the Seas as she sets sail for the magnificent Eastern Caribbean for our Third Annual Steampunk Cruise and High Seas Ball, to include appearances, workshops and performances from the most renowned Steampunk Writers, Speakers Artists and Musicians in the Steampunk World today!"
