#SeaTweetup Itinerary

18 Aug

Why should you come aboard the @SeaTweetup? Because Norwegian Cruise Line, Kaufman, Rossin & Co., SocialBuzzTV, Soul of Miami, Social Esquire, Cruise Deals, Jeff Cohen, Rich Tucker and I have planned this kick ass itinerary!

$100 a day for your cabin, meals (there are 10 different dining options), entertainment, fitness center, bars & lounges, pools, shops, casino, the Bahamas, Great Stirrup Cay (Norwegian’s private, renovated island) and parties! Where can you get all this on land for $100 a day? Put down that deposit to secure the current cruise rate, priority cabin preference, free WiFi minutes (first 30 to book get 30 free minutes; <30 free minutes to those who book thereafter), and the opportunity to speak at our roundtable presentation!

Cruise + Bahamas + Tweeps = #SeaTweetup

14 Aug

First thing’s first, I’d like to apologize for being a busy bum and not blogging since…um…end…of…May… (YIKES!) But my laziness worked out to my strategic advantage because now I can return with a BANG! *BANG*

Ladies and gentlemen, I am pleased to invite you to the FIRST ever #SeaTweetup!!!

#SeaTweetup = social media enthusiasts + networking + tweetups + cruising + boozing + Bahamas + social media presentations + social media scavenger hunt + special events + no work!

Organized by South Florida social media enthusiasts – Jeff Cohen @iamJeffCohen, James Echols @SoulOfMiami, Rochelle Gapere @roriffic, Annette Peikert @thepumagirl, Sebastian Rusk @sebrusk, Rich Tucker @RichTucker, and myself @Aubrey_Swanson – along with the support of Kaufman, Rossin & Co., Norwegian Cruise Line, SocialBuzzTV, Social Esquire and Soul of Miami, the world’s first ever tweetup at sea will bring together social media enthusiasts from across the globe for a one-of-a-kind 3-day/3-night networking event to build lasting relationships!

The back-story: The #SeaTweetup idea was sparked after Norwegian Cruise Line hosted their first tweetup on their largest cruise ship, The Epic. Attendees were given an amazing tour of the ship and treated to a delicious meal while tweeting #TwEpic. But then, we had to exit the Epic so that the real cruisers could board. It was kind of a bummer, especially for someone who’s never been on a cruise before! So we had a great idea – why not extend this #TwEpic idea and actually set sail?! #SeaTweetup was born ūüôā

#SeaTweetup logistics:

  • Date: November 18-21, 2011
  • Cost: $301.32 ($100 refundable deposit due by September 10th. Full payment or cancellation due by September 10th.)

Itinerary includes:

  • Meet & Tweet
  • Social Media Scavenger Hunt
  • Sail Away Tweetup & BBQ
  • Roundtable presentation – “How Can We Improve Twitter – 15 presenters in 45 minutes”
  • Show & Tell Tweetup
  • Private island excursions
  • Nassau adventures
  • Cocktail parties
  • Group dinners
  • Discussions
  • Parties
  • Anything and everything your hopes and dreams desire (as long as it’s legal)

I’m incredibly excited for this social media extravaganza at sea! I’ve never been on a cruise, and I’ve never to the Bahamas! I cannot wait to meet new people and have fun with those I already know. If you like social media/cruises/networking/partying, then I think this is the trip for you!

For more information and to join the discussion, visit the SeaTweetup Facebook Fan Page, check the #SeaTweetup hash tag and follow @SeaTweetup as well as the organizers mentioned above.

Can’t wait to jump on board with you ūüôā
