You’re the Data 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 Microsoft Data Platform 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. 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
2017 Caribbean and Alaskan SQL Cruise Event Registration Costs: $1,395*
2018 Caribbean and Alaskan SQL Cruise Event 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. Certain promotions through NCL will also include unlimited drinks, excursion credits, and 250 minutes of free wifi.
This is 40%-70% cheaper than your typical room and board costs for land-based training events depending upon location.
You must book your staterooms through our dedicated Cruise Consultant at Norwegian Cruise Line or one of his fellow associates. Bookings through outside agencies or third-party websites will not allow you to be assigned to our events group and will prevent you from participating in group events.

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:
If you encounter any technical issues with submitting your registration please contact us!
