What could be better than crafting AND cruising…  but seeing amazing fall colors along the East Coast while crafting and cruising?!?!

9 Night East Coast & Canada Cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Liberty of the Seas!

The adventure’s never been bigger — or bolder.

Fall in love with New England’s enchanting foliage, historic landmarks and small-town culture.

New England’s quintessential charm lines its streets — literally. Each of the six states that comprise the region is unique, but New England’s shared history can be felt in both its small towns and its bustling cities. Cruise to New England and wind your way through cobblestone streets dotted with antique lampposts and colonial homes. Take a trip to Maine and hike your way through Acadia National Park, known for its stunning granite cliffs and rocky beaches along the Atlantic coastline. Then make your way further south to the old seaside town of Portland, a haven for artists, foodies and water lovers alike. Walk the Freedom Trail in Boston to learn about the American Revolution in the very places it began.

The paper crafting portion of this cruise is optional for cruise attendees and will consist of six (6) OVER THE TOP classes including card classes and home decor classes (i.e. cards, gift packaging, banner, sampler, tags, etc.). All of the projects will be created with brand new 2023  Stampin’ Up! Annual and Fall/Winter catalog products.



September 21 – 30, 2023



Our itinerary is roundtrip from Cape Liberty, New Jersey. Join us while we enjoy breathtaking views and the amazing Eastern Coastline when we visit the Boston, Portland, Bar Harbor, Halifax, Nova Scotia and St. John, NB (Bay of Fundy).


Because… CRAFTING and CRUISING… am I right?!


Your cruise cabin must be booked through Ahoy Travel, Eva Wallert, to participate in the crafting event. This is required so that we are able to use the conference room space for the week by fulfilling the group bookings requirement of RCCL.

A non-refundable $50 registration fee is due to hold your spot in the crafting event and the balance, in the form of an online order through the online store, will be ordered in August 2023. This order will be for $150 in Stampin’ UP! products (+ tax and shipping) which you will BRING WITH YOU on the cruise to complete your projects. 

You will use a specific Host Code (to be provided in August 2023) when placing the order. We will provide a “hostess code” and a list of products that you will need to purchase through the online store and bring with you to complete your projects while onboard. We will bring your Tote full of your project kits and extra goodies. (**Even if you are a demonstrator you will need to place the order through Kurstan! The Stampin’ Rewards will be used to purchase the additional card stock and supplies needed to put the project kits together.)

You will bring your basic crafting kit, with essentials such as scissors, adhesives, bone folder, tweezers or other items you keep handy when crafting. Everything else will be provided (stamps, die cutting machine, inks, etc).

The classes will be self-paced and “open-house style”. You can take your time and come and go as you please all week. We’ll also set aside one evening for Pajama Crafting. We will have everything set up with separate class stations and there will be plenty of room for everyone. Crafting will be in the gorgeous Conference Room on deck 2, and we’ll be in the Conference Room periodically during the “at sea days” to answer questions, help and socialize!

While on-board you can craft anytime you wish, and we will have two (2) full days at sea including:

  • Amazing Classes!
  • FUN!
  • Over the Top Projects!
  • Awesome Goodie Bags and Surprises!
  • Card swapping!
  • Extra product giveaways on the last evening of the Cruise (YOU take it home so I don’t have to!)

The paper crafting portion of this event WILL sell out!! We are required to limit capacity based on RCCL guidelines for using the shared conference space. Your $50 fee secures your spot to craft.
