West Coast Hash Cruise

Boring Stuff

All the ins, outs, and what have yous



Pricing - The pricing displayed on the web site is per person based on double occupancy (that means two people per cabin). Prices change without notice so if they have changed from what is shown on this site when you send in your registration form, I will contact you before booking your cabin. The price includes the cruise, all port charges and taxes, hasher giveaways, a hash on Catalina Island (& beer), a $75 onboard credit per cabin, a Carnival tote bag and the non-refundable $35/cabin processing fee. Pre-paid gratuities and trip protection insurance may be added (see below).


Singles - If you want a cabin all to yourself, double the per person double occupancy rate and subtract $91.09.


Deposits - For me to hold a cabin, I need $300 in deposits plus a $35 non-refundable processing fee. So if you have a roomie, you can each deposit $150 (+$17.50). If you don't have one now but still want to lock in your cabin in a great location and a low rate, you will need to put down the full $335. That just means you'll have to pay less at final. If you want me to help you find a roomie, just indicate that on the registration form. Suites may require a larger deposit than standard cabins.


FINAL PAYMENT DUE NO LATER THAN July 21, 2017. After this date, full payment will be due at time of booking.

This is NOT a booking deadline. Yo can book anytime until the ship is full.


Availability - To the best of our ability, we will book you as close to the hasher domain area of the ship as possible. Early bookings will have the best shot. As normal people book the cruise, those that book later may be more removed from the main hasher area. BOOK EARLY!

Registration can be done online at the registration link at the top of this page. If you do not want to register online, e-mail Babe at the address above.You’ll need to give legal names of passengers that match their passports (passports required), address, phone, e-mail address, cabin type, birth dates, hash names, and credit card information.


You may prepay your gratuities for the cruise if you want to avoid having them added to your onboard charge account. Prepaid gratuities for a 4-night cruise is $48 per person.


A passport or certified copy of your birth certificate along with a photo ID is required for the cruise. A passport is HIGHLY recommended (you cannot board an international flight back home without one) and a REAL hasher should be able to flee the country to an international hashing event at the drop of a hat.


Invoices will be sent with each payment. Please retain these in your inbox for balance due information.


All updates and silly hasher pre-cruise dialogue will be posted in the Babe's Hash Cruise group on Facebook. If you are not on Facebook, I will be sending out occasional Email updates to bring you up to date on what's going on.


Carnival reserves the right to impose a fuel supplement fee if fuel exceeds $65/barrel.
