PRICE INFORMATION:
If you are thinking of going on a cruise and price is a concern call
Carnival and verify the prices quoted anywhere.
Price includes all food & lodging on the cruise ship.

Prices listed are per person based on double occupancy as of 11/26/2012

The cost for this complete cruise has been discounted from $1804.
For an inside room to $494.
Window cabins current price $669.
Balcony cabins current price $684.
Prices for 3 or 4 people per room are lower.

INTERESTED MODELS:
This is intended as a TF event. The cruise for the models is FREE!
Models attending this cruiseboat shoot receive a FREE cruise ticket from their sponsoring photographer. 
Models are only obligated for the 5 organized/scheduled shoots. After that any model is free to shoot or not with anyone they like at anytime. The models compensation for the entire 7 days is the FREE cruise and vacation. Do not come on this cruise with the intention of making money from paid one on one shoots, as you will be disappointed. You are required to sign a release for all images shot at the group shoots to any photographer who requests one. What to bring for shooting. Beach in Mexico, Pool in Mexico and anything YOU want pictures in on board the ship. Photographers will be sharing cabins with other photographers, models with models, unless you make other arrangements.

INTERESTED PHOTOGRAPHERS:
This is intended as a TF event. Unlike most cruise ship photoshoots, this event provides ZERO profit to the promotor.
Each photographer attending this cruiseshoot MUST also purchase a cruise ship ticket for the model of his/her choice. Photographers attending the cruiseshoot MUST also allow other photographers to shoot the model that they bring. Every photographer will have shooting access to all models attending. You are required to provide copies of all edited images from the group shoots to the models, unless other arrangements are made. Full resolution non-watermarked images from the group shoots, suitable for printing, shall be provided upon request by the model. By attending this event, you grant permission for the models to use all provided images from the group shoots for self promotion. I will add your name to the confirmed list when I have a cabin/booking number. Photographers will be sharing cabins with other photographers, models with models, unless you make other arrangements.
Clear with me PRIOR to purchasing tickets to be included in this group.

THE SHOOT SCHEDULE:
There will be 5 scheduled photoshoots.
2 in Cabo San Lucas, Tue 2pm to 5pm, Wed 9am Noon
1 in Puerto Vallarta 3pm to 6pm
2 on the cruise ship, Mon 4pm to 7pm, Sat 4pm to 6pm
You are welcome to take any local tours or anything else you like when we are not shooting.

GENERAL INFO ABOUT THE SHIP:
One night is formal dining. A dress for the ladies. A tux for the men,(JK) but a jacket or tie or both would help.
Way to windy on deck for softboxes etc.so when shooting KISS (keep it simple) Only 1 electrical outlet in the cabins plan ahead. If you can carry your own bags on and off the ship you will not have to wait in groups to off load. You are allowed to bring 1 bottle of wine or champagnie on board. You do go through customs, any drugs and NO CRUISE! Try not to pack for 3 months the cruise is only 7days. Parking at the terminal in Long Beach is $15./day. Think carpool! The entire group usually dine together however that is an option. EVERYTHING outside of the 5 organized shoots is yours do do as you please.

TICKETS:
Carnival Cruise contact is Shane
His phone number is 800 819 3902 x85019
If you want cabins close together speak to him.
Tell him you are with Photographer/Model group.

You can buy your cruiseship tickets anyplace else you like.
If you choose to use another source you can not be assured of a cabin close to the rest of the group.
You will also have to make arrangements for dining with the rest of the group. Tickets should be purchased soon because the price can vary day to day. The price increases as it gets closer to sailing time.

REQUIRED PAPERWORK TO SAIL:
As I understand it do not need a passport you can board with a picture ID and a certified (seal embossed) birth certificate. The names on both documents must match. Maiden name on one and married name on the other will NOT work. If you want to be sure of getting on board a passport or passport card is best.

MISC:
Photographers & models are welcome to invite other friends and/or relatives on the cruise, but they Will not interfere with the 5 scheduled shoots and will pay their own way. The only people welcome at the scheduled shoots are the sponsoring photographers, the models and other pre-arranged help makeup etc.

Paul sent me this information as a possible source for lower priced tickets as the ticket price is going up this may be a good option...

Here is her contact information:

Paula Grassel
Paulas Travel
(805) 582-2551 Office
(805) 583-8339 Mobil
Paulag@aol.com

She has cabins she reserved for the group back in August, so the prices are lower than currently available through Carnival.  The prices quoted are for double occupancy and include all taxes and government fees (meaning it is the full price you pay per person for 2 people in a cabin).  Paula will be happy to answer any questions.

Balcony cabins:
8 C grade $801 per person including taxes and government fees
8 E grade $821 per person including taxes and government fees

Interior Cabins:
$556 per person including taxes and government fees

In addition, if 8 cabins are booked as a group, there is a $25 per cabin ship account credit, and the group gets a 1 hour open bar shared party.

Oh there's plenty of food and toilets... and ALL those passengers on the Carnival Triumph (currently being towed into Texas after engine fire) get TWO FREE CRUISES... the one they're on, (with a free credit) and a cruise of their choice in the future... borat

You can bet that any post you see placed on a forum by THIS GUY will be derogatory in nature.  He doesn't play well with others, is on the 'banned, cannot attend' list of many SoCal event promotors (including all SM events), and he shoulda been on the Titanic without a lifeboat... wink

I always bring my own food and drinks anyway and that might have been a disaster but I will bet that it won't stop any of the people here or anywhere else from going on future cruises including myself smile.

Photographers - if you are thinking about going, Carson is full of awesome.  Hit up the travel agent listed in the third post (her rates were significantly less than Carnival's current rate) and sign up.
