  5. 5. Why Cruises and Villas?   Cruises: Great value! With a cruise, the fun is included!   Why not dance 'til dawn, then order room service? Go ahead, climb a rock wall, then attend an art auction. When you cruise, you'll be able to live it up at no extra cost because the fun is included. Check out these amazing complimentary perks:   Delicious meals in elegant dining rooms, extravagant buffets, and 24 hour free room service Broadway-style shows, comedians, nightclubs, lounges and bars, many with live entertainment. From classical to rock. Karaoke, game-style shows, contests, piano bars Onboard activities like rock climbing, bowling, ice-skating, miniature golf, golf simulators, water parks, pools, Jacuzzis, and more!   Villas: Great Value!   Why be stuck in a cramped studio hotel room with 1 or 2 beds?   Our Villas have 2 to 42 bedrooms with space to really relax and unwind.   Example: $4000/week 5-bedroom Villa for 10 guests – only $800 per couple.
  6. 6. Cruises Inc./WTH Confidential © 2009 All Rights Reserved Yes We Can !

  7. 7. Yes, YOU Can! There are no costs upfront or later for charities and nonprofit organizations to offer our trips at their auctions.   Trips are only paid for if they sell at the event, and only after the winning bidder has paid for the trip.   If a trip does not sell -- the charity owes us nothing!
  8. 8. Cruises Inc./WTH Confidential © 2009 All Rights Reserved We will send you a list of some of the no-risk trips we have offered at other fundraising events around the country. This is only a small list of trips available.   Call me with questions and we can discuss which trips you would like to offer at your upcoming event. You can offer one or all of them. Remember you only pay us if they sell!   Most of our trips have minimum bids between $1500.00 and $7500.00. We can provide trips for $500.00 or less or even Luxury One-of-a-kind Cruises or weekly Villa rentals for over $20,000.00/week.   We suggest you offer 3 trips at 3 different price levels A trip for under $1000.00 A trip for $2,000 to $5000.00 An upscale Luxury trip for $$$$$ ?????   We just need to decide what has the best opportunity to sell and make the most money for your particular organization.  The trips may relate to the theme of your event.   A trip may be something a particularly generous patron would be interested in and would surely bid on!   Some organizations choose a very upscale Luxury trip to help market the event to potential attendees.

  9. 9. Cruises Inc./WTH Confidential © 2009 All Rights Reserved Yes, YOU Can!

  11. 11. A Note on Airfare We may include round-trip airfare on some trips, however in our experience including generic airfare can substantially increase the cost and reduce the amount of money you net from the auction sale.   Many auction winners have frequent flyer points to use, have flight discounts from relatives or friends working for the airlines, may have access to private jet services, or may use their auction trip as part of a business trip in which the airfare is already paid.   We help the winning bidders find the best promotional airfare available before they actually take the trip and these airfares are almost always a fraction of the cost of generic fares purchased as part of an event package.

From that humble beginning was born Banff National Park, Canada's first national park and the world's third. Spanning 6,641 square kilometres (2,564 square miles) of valleys, mountains, glaciers, forests, meadows and rivers, Banff National Park is one of the world's premier destination spots.

  59. 59. Fundraising Cruises Although all of the cruise lines programs are different, typically they will provide a donation for each cabin booked.   We will find the best cruise value for your group. We suggest you markup the price at least $100 per cabin for the privilege to attend your special Fundraising cruise and participate in your special events.   The cruise line will also provide a free cabin for each 30 paid guests. (15 cabins)   These free cabins can really add up if you have a large group. If you have 100 guests, you receive 3 free cabins.   These free cabins can be used to raise additional funds, for the use of valued patrons or for a special guest or an entertainer you bring onboard to increase attendance. Here are a few possibilities for the extra cabins Hold a raffle for an extra cabin Hold an auction at one of your regularly scheduled events Setup a special auction (Online or Live) with just your patrons participating Setup a special auction (Online or Live) and invite the general public – this can be great PR for your organization, and may recruit additional revenue sources.

  62. 62. Very few people are allowed onboard a cruise ship for a lunch and tour of the ship!   It is only because of the Generosity of Norwegian Cruise lines, and their commitment to helping Charities and Non-Profit organizations with Fundraising, that we are onboard today.   I would like to personally thank Clarence Harris, the Management team at NCL, and the staff and crew of the Norwegian Spirit for allowing us onboard today!
