FAQs

Is there a COST to come on the Marketers Cruise? Do you mark it up?

Our goal was this. You work hard and you are entitled to a vacation. You are going to take a vacation anyway. So why not take a vacation with like minded people. That was our vision. And why not make some use of SEA days to network and learn from each other. From the start, Mike Filsaime and Captain Lou Edwards, your hosts and Co-founders always felt that for THIS project, we would rather make a friend than a profit. We do this as ambassadors of our industry. We mark up a small amount to provide some open bar parties, your shirts, directory, name tags, etc. All close to our costs. But we also get volume discounts. So basically you pay for a cruise and get to come to a workshop and networking event for free. With NO SELLING from the stage. That has been our vision for 17 years.

If I was referred to the Marketers Cruise by word of mouth or friend or marketer but not given a link, should you be aware?

The Marketers Cruise is "By Invitation Only" . So when you book, please let us know who referred you. If you already booked and have not done that please contact us. We have a group leader program and sometimes with word of mouth and people booking months later the person that referred you does not always get the credit. We like to make sure they do.

What's is included in the price?

Includes ALL of our business building mastermind sessions, private parties, networking events and dinners!

 

INCLUDES All Cruise Fees! That means, all port charges, government fees and taxes are included in the price. 

Note: Carnival’s online rates do NOT include gov. fees and taxes, but our group rates do!

 

Also includes all meals, most soft drinks, all buffets, 24 hour pizza and more, like nightly entertainment,

Broadway and Vegas style shows, pools, fitness center, water park, and Camp Carnival for your children.

Wha is NOT included in the price?

Not included in your price is your airfare or travel to Port of Embarkation to get onto the ship. You pre-cruise hotel stay, pre-cruise drinks and pre-cruise meals are not included. (All your meals On-Ship ARE included.) Optional shore excursions are not included. Things like the SPA are extra. Hard alcohol drinks from the bar and wine are not included and you can put these on your sign-n-sail card.

 

The excellent dining room is free but the ship does have various upscale Asian, Italian Restaurants and one of the best steak houses you can eat at. That is $48 a person and optional. It is something you'll want to do at least once. 

Is this a pitch fest?

No. No selling allowed. While we are not fans of that phrase because there is a place for selling on stage, you won't find that on the cruise. The cruise is all PEER to PEER networking and learning. We are all peers. There will be no one there lecturing you. We come to learn and ask questions and help each other. The crowd on the ship is of high caliber character. That means even if you are a newbie or making 6, 7, 8, or even 9 figures, we have a no a**hole rule. Everyone we allow on is just good people., and agree to check their egos at the door. So we welcome you if you are new and you can meet the legends on the industry.

Who are the speakers?

As you can see in the itinerary, most of the sessions is masterminds and workshops. How ever we do have speakers that are group leaders. They are there to provide content. No selling allowed. Also Mike Filsaime will always do a special session or an expert panel.

How do I get stage time?

Everyone gets a chance to introduce themselves, come back later to ask questions and contribute in the sessions. 30 Minutes of Stage time to present on a topic of your expertise is awarded to our group leaders. You become a group leader when you refer 10 or more cabins with our affiliate program.

How do I become a group leader?

Simple. With our affiliate program we set up a special link for you. When you refer 10 cabins, you get $2000 plus 30 minutes of stage time. This is one of the best things you can do for your business. (Just 7 cabins referred still earns a "15 Minutes Of fame" slot)

How does your affiliate program work?

Who else do you know who deserves to go?  With our partner program, we will set you up with an affiliate link and even speak at your events or host a webinar with you. If you are an influencer this is for you. It's like almost being able to cruise for free because we award you $2000 60 days after sailing or just apply it towards your next year's cruise.  Plus you get all the benefits of being a group leader like the stage time and branding. For everyone else we pay $1000 on 8 Cabins, and "15 Minutes Of Fame" on stage for 7 cabins.

How do I get myself known to the 400 marketers?

We will list you in our printed directory, distributed on-board. You and everyone will have a chance to queue up and get 30 seconds to talk about yourself and say what you can help with and what you need help with and your page in the directory. Guests listen to everyone over this 3 hour session and mark off on the book who they want to meet. Maybe 10, 20 or 30 people in your niche you can help, need help from, or want to partner or JV with. Don't bring flyers (we hate that) and put them on seats. Over the 8 days you will find everyone you want. More importantly, the right people will find YOU. What most people discover is it was not who the wanted to meet that had the greatest impact. In fact many have created 7 figure businesses together simply because they met at Pizza and Profits or at the networking dinners. Let it come to you, don't be pushy, and this will be the best thing that has ever happened to your business.

How do I get in the cruise directory?

After you place your deposit , we'll send you a link to upload your bio and picture and we'll publish it in alphabetical order. Everyone gets the Million-Dollar Directory when they board the ship.

How do I get in access to the Private facebook group?

After you place your deposit you get access. Over 2000 VIP members are in that group. Meet your shipmates before we set sail.  It is worth the price alone.

Can I book separate with Carnival and attend the Marketers Cruise Events?

Short answer. No. Anyone publicly can book the same cruise. But without a Marketer's Cruise Name Badge or VIP Wristband you will not be allowed in our networking events, mastermind sessions, pre-cruise party at the hotel, private dinners in main dining room, cocktail parties, private excursions, beach or pool party, Pizza and Profits networking, costume party, the Million-Dollar directory, or private facebook group. So if you want to grow your business, book with us. We make a small profit per cabin and most of that goes to Captain Lou 's company for facilitating this great cruise. Like any travel planner, that's how Captain Lou earns a living and he is the best in the business to make this special event at sea the best vacation you ever had.  

Can I bring my spouse, significant other, kids, parents, family, or friends?

Yes! This is your vacation. Spend it with with the people you care about most. 

Can friends or family that book through marketers cruise attend all of the networking events and fun-time activities?

Yes. We welcome them in fact. We love to share the entrepreneurial spirt with everyone. Some events are no-kids allowed. Like rated R comedians etc. As well as even some of our evening or late night events. Your kids will be happy at Camp Carnival (included) and won't ever want to leave there.

Who will watch my kids while I am at the events?

Camp Carnival will. Your kids will love the fun and will want to be there 24/7. It is safe and fun and the kids love it.    


From Carnival's site. "On their Carnival cruise, kids can enjoy all the best parts of summer camp and family vacation, all in one! At Camp Carnival, they'll start by splitting up into three different age groups: 2 to 5 years, 6 to 8, and 9 to 11. Our experienced counselors are there to make sure everyone in these small groups has an amazing time. And they do, with tons of fun-filled, age-appropriate activities including arts and crafts, songs, games, dancing, movies, video games… and of course plenty of toys! When it’s mealtime, kids get their own menus, with faves like mac & cheese, chicken nuggets, and more. And when the sun goes down, we offer Night Owls (fees apply) so kids get to stay up late having fun, while their parents also enjoy themselves well into the night."

 

For more information about Camp Carnival click here. 

Do I have to attend all of the events on the itinerary?

That is entirely up to you. While we do recommend attending all the events, it is your vacation and if you want to miss a session and go to the SPA with the spouse, or just sleep in that's O.K. We just know once you come to one session you will want to come to all. If your spouse or family do not want to join sessions and enjoy the ship they are more than welcome to do so.

How does the open seating work in the dining room?

Simple. Most tables seat 8 to 12 people. When you see someone you want to sit with just grab a seat. Or walk in the dining room with a group and all sit together. You will meet so many amazing new people.

Where can I book excursions?

We at MarketersCruise.com will arrange private shore excursions at each port of call, just for members of our group.   More info and a special link will be sent out as we get closer to the cruise.

What reassurances can you give me about Covid-19, sailing safely and the protection of my payments just in case of any issues?

Carnival and most other major cruise lines are now welcoming ALL guests onboard. Your deposits are protected up until Sept. 5th, 2022 when final payments are due. We recommend adding the suggested cruise cancellation insurance, which also protects your investment AFTER you are paid up, in the event of illness, accident or last minute family emergency. The insurance is approx. 8% of cruise cost and also covers pre-existing medical conditions when added at time of booking. It's best for peace of mind.

When I book NOW, can I still make changes later, such as adding guests, upgrading, downgrading, etc. without incurring change fees?

Absolutely! Up until Sept. 5th 2023. Small change fees apply after that date.

Is vaccination required?

No. Carnival updated their Covid-19 protocols and requirements recently. You can find them here http://carnival.com/HaveFunBeSafe  

What time do you recommend we book flights?

We highly recommend you book a flight a day or two prior to the cruise. You do not want to miss the ship if your flight is delayed or cancelled. The ship returns on Sunday January 14th in the morning. We recommend that you book a flight anytime after 1 pm.

Only if you don't have PROOF of Covid Vaccination.No,

Visa waivers for international guests
