Ahoy me Mates!

The Captains have commandeered another ship for our 2019 Captains of the Deal Cruise.  Although it’s been a challenge to find a trip worthy of our wonderful cruising family, Janis Baker has worked tirelessly in search of a beautiful ship with interesting ports.  FYI:  we searched all-inclusive resorts, but the dates and price point just weren’t acceptable to us frugal investors.

So we’re heading out on one of  Royal Caribbean’s New Mega Ships with all the bells and whistles, Harmony of the Seas in 2019!  We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding.  We received a lot phone calls and emails from you, all stating that you didn’t care where we went – as long as we go somewhere together.  Y’all are the best and we are honored that you have faith in us to host another fantastic Captains of the Deal Cruise!

 In 2019, we will host 3 days of Conference at Sea, along with other educational meetings and countless opportunities for networking.  Pete, Dyches and Bill are already starting to plan another wonderful program for us all!


Peter Fortunato, Dyches Boddiford, and Bill Cook present…
