The majestic Grand Atrium on the Carnival Fascination cruise ship

We’re just over seven months away from setting sail out of Jacksonville, Florida port on the Carnival Fascination cruise down to the Bahamas for The 3rd Annual Low-Carb Cruise and I’m excited to share that we already have over 72 people signed up to come with us March 6-11, 2010–TWICE as many as we had in 2009 already! We fully expect to have well over 100 people sharing in the food, fun, and fellowship with some of the biggest names in the world of livin’ la vida low-carb.

One of the prominent guest speakers we had scheduled to come with us was Drs. Mike and Mary Dan Eades from Protein Power. Unfortunately, when we were forced to change the original date of our cruise because of Carnival booking the entire ship to another group, this caused a scheduling conflict with the Eades’. They have assured me that they REALLY wanted to come, but could not get out of this other event. Although they won’t be sailing with us in 2010, Dr. Mike said he looks forward to joining us in 2011.

Although we lost a really fantastic speaking duo, we picked up a couple of other fascinating special speakers to go along with this impressive line-up already booked. Dr. Mary C. Vernon said she would be happy to headline one of the main talks during the cruise. A noted low-carb practitioner and co-author with another speaker on the cruise named Jackie Eberstein of Atkins’ Diabetes Revolution, Dr. Vernon brings tons of enthusiasm, experience, and enlightenment whenever she speaks. I’ve had the privilege of hearing her many times at various scientific meetings and you’re in for a real treat to be exposed to what Dr. Vernon has to say.

Another exciting guest speaker development that was just confirmed this week is that Tom Naughton will be joining us to share his dynamic documentary film FAT HEAD which just so happens to be the #1 comedy documentary on Amazon.com! While it is indeed a funny movie, the subject matter is 100% dead serious: we’ve been lied to about how to lose weight and get healthy. Tom exposes how the low-fat scam got dropped on the American public by a radical few and why low-carb living is much more preferred for both weight and health control. And Tom is a stand-up comedian who will have you in stitches laughing so hard.

Other new guest speakers and cruise attendees include Connie Bennett from the SUGAR SHOCK! blog, Valerie Berkowitz who co-wrote The Stubborn Fat Fix with her husband Dr. Keith Berkowitz, and Judy Barnes Baker who will be returning again in 2010 to talk about her new low-carb cookbook project that she first shared with us about on the 2009 cruise. We are going to be loaded for bear with all the superstars of the low-carb world on this cruise–DON’T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY!

Just a reminder about the FREE CRUISE ESSAY CONTEST that is still happening through September 30, 2009 where you and a guest can win a spot on the cruise PLUS $500 spending cash! Tons of entries have come pouring in from people who feel they deserve to go on The 3rd Annual Low-Carb Cruise. Do you have a compelling story that makes you worthy of coming with us down to the Bahamas? Don’t be bashful, share your story!

Because we have had such an incredible response to the 2010 Low-Carb Cruise, I wanted to make you aware that there may be some price increases if you delay in booking your spot. The travel agency we are working with only had a limited number of cabins they could hold for us and those are quickly vanishing. If you REALLY want to go and want to stave off the expected price increase on your cabin, then put down your deposit now to lock in the lower price. Those of you who have already booked are guaranteed on the price you paid.

I’m really excited to meet so many of you in person on the cruise. That’s one of the things that makes these cruises so special to me is the privilege to see and hear from the people who are a part of the loving and caring low-carb community. The low-carb speaking sessions will certainly expand your knowledge and understanding of nutrition and health, but the friendships and bonds you make while onboard a luxurious cruise line down to an exotic vacation destination are priceless.
