The mission of Kick Cancer Overboard is to give away FREE CRUISES to people who have been affected by cancer. To offer them a break for a few days, so their most important question is not how to pay for their next medical bill, but whether to play bingo, get a massage or sing karaoke (loud and off-key) all night long.

In our first year, they gave away 16 cruises, with many more to come in 2012. ANYBODY is welcome to celebrate life with us on our next cruise from Cape Liberty (NJ) to Bermuda on May 21, 2012 (makes a great stocking stuffer). Logan James Parker and his family will be cruising to Bermuda this May thanks to Kick Cancer Overboard.

This past Thursday I was invited on a ship tour of the Explorer of the Seas by the organization’s mastermind, Ted Friedli of Excel Travel. The tour changed all of my preconceived notions of what going on a cruise was like. The rooms were spacious, the restaurants and bars were many, outdoor pools, rock climbing wall, mini golf, ice skating rink,  and basketball court were just some of the activities available. Royal Caribbean also has kids clubs catering to their younger travelers. The price for the 5 day cruise starts at $514 and goes up depending on the room type you choose.
