SQL Cruise Event Registration

Some of Our Adventurous SQL Cruisers Braving the Chill Waters of Alaska in 2011

YOU’RE ADVENTUROUS!

You’re the SQL Professional that is encouraged to dig into a crisis with both hands rather than run away from it!

You deserve to satisfy your desire to learn more and make yourself more valuable and also get a little relaxation from those things that go bump in the data center at night!

YOU DESERVE A SQL CRUISE!

Where else can you learn more, increase your value to your company, network with your peers and get top-tier training from leaders in the SQL Community including Microsoft Certified Masters and Microsoft SQL Server MVPs while enjoying once-in-a-lifetime scenery and experiences?

Tell your Manager you want to go on a SQL Cruise and she may laugh you out of the office. Then tell her that you get superior training for less than the same price of the typical land-based technical conference and it comes with a room and board charge of around $100-$200/day. Let’s see you do that in a traditional hotel/big city training environment. You can even tell her that Internet charges are so expensive on a cruise ship that you’ll not be able to surf the Web during class and will actually be paying attention. Add to that the simple fact you’ll have access to the Technical leads all week long and not just for a few minutes at the end of their presentations and you can turn the tide in your favor!

 

SQL CRUISE IS EXTREMELY AFFORDABLE


Caribbean and Alaskan SQL Cruise Event Registration Costs: $1,395*

Mediterranean and Northern European SQL Cruise Registration Costs: $1,595*

*Training and event materials only – cruise registration is handled via direct booking with Norwegian Cruise Lines though our dedicated Cruise Consultant per instructions below.)

Your stateroom will typically range in cost of $100-200 per day and that includes meals. This is almost 40%-60% cheaper than your typical room and board costs for land-based training events depending upon location.


REGISTRATION PROCESS

In keeping with our goals of simplicity and relaxation we make joining us on a SQL Cruise really easy…

  1. SECURE YOUR STATEROOM WITH OUR PERSONAL CRUISE CONSULTANT AT NORWEGIAN CRUISE LINES: ALEX GONZALEZ (877.416.9722 Ext. 4101). He’s a Pro and will make this quick and painless. You could even email him if you like at alegonzalez@ncl.com, but he has a pleasant voice and he’ll eventually want to talk to you anyway in order to get your credit card information for your stateroom deposit. Alex will go over the room options and pricing with you. We were able to secure some really good rates for you though thanks to booking directly through NCL. JUST TELL HIM YOU’RE WITH SQL CRUISE and he’ll get you all set! NOTE: REGISTRATION FOR YOUR SQL CRUISE STATEROOM MUST BE DONE THROUGH ALEX. THIRD PARTY SITES AND TRAVEL AGENT BOOKING WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO BE INCLUDED IN OUR GROUP AND EXCLUDES YOU FROM ALL GROUP ACTIVITIES ABOARD THE SHIP.
  2. Once Alex has provided you with your booking number fill out the form below.
  3. We will send you a confirmation letter and a link for payment. Payment via Intuit Online pay is great, but we are only able to accept domestic US payment via Visa and Mastercard. We can accept ACH payments (using an https connection over SSL (Secure Socket Layer) at 256-bit AES encryption) or checks for our international Cruisers. We do not believe in the practices that PayPal has applied against charitable organizations so we make a concious effort to avoid that service though it does allow more options for payment. We apologize for the inconvenience this may cause.
  4. Please plan to arrive at the dock the day of embarkation before noon. Specifically in regards to our Mediterranean events as we have class prior to setting sail on day one due to the amount of time available in that itinerary.
  5. Once we receive payment then load up on the sunscreen, practice your limbo dancing and make sure your laptop is charged.
  6. You’re going on a SQL Cruise!

READY TO SET SAIL?

We consistently sell out and space is extremely limited by design. (We want to keep our training custom fit for our cruisers so small class sizes are important to us.) Unfortunately this means we run a tight ship when it comes to reserving spots aboard a SQL Cruise. We can’t reserve a spot on board SQL Cruise until we receive payment for your training and a confirmation from Norwegian Cruise Lines that you’ve reserved your cabin for the cruise. This is why we ask for the booking number first in our registration form below:

SQL Cruise may share my mailing address and email address with SQL Cruise Sponsors. I understand that SQL Cruises' Sponsors keep the costs for Cruisers affordable and that allowing them to contact me ensures they keep sponsoring SQL Cruise. I think it's GREAT that phone numbers will never be shared and that SQL Cruise will not share any of my information with third parties since SQL Cruise hates spam as much as I do if not more!
