What people are saying about the Annual Craig Woolard MAKING WAVES CRUISE….

“Can you say perfect? Perfect birthday gift. Perfect vacation. Just…perfect.”
John & Susan
“The 7th CWB cruise was the best one yet.  It was a pleasure to see how Carnival worked with our group to give us the best rooms available.  Looking forward to number 8.”    Paulette
“We had a BLAST!!!!!!  Can’t wait until next time.  CWB was awesome as always……….”
 Trilma & Micky
“The CWB does a FANTASTIC job of ENTERTAINING the crowd!!  Not only are the songs good but the singing is even better!!!  I cannot THANK you and the entire band enough for what you do to make this happen and make it successful………GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!!”
“The best cruise I have ever been on thanks to the CWB !!!!! ”
D Bazemore
“I just wanted to tell you, on behalf of the Gates County Dirty Dozen, we had a ball on the cruise! We honestly can not think of anything you or the CWB band could have done that would have made it any better.  Thank you for being so determined to make everyone have a good time. We certainly enjoyed ourselves and hope to see you again at SOS.”

“I agree that the CWB Band was absolutely outstanding. They couldn’t have done a better job. Rodney and I were just bystanders during this cruise, but we certainly enjoyed it very much. We both have a lot of respect for Craig and his band.”    
“It was a SUPER cruise & CWB “rocked” the boat & entertained everyone. Thank
you for your usual great job & tireless efforts – we are never disappointed.”                                                                                                                                                                                          Dave & Nancy  – (PS.

Everyone has their own idea of what a perfect cruise vacation is. That’s why Carnival believes in giving our guests a variety of entertaining options — one more fun than the next. Looking for some quiet time with the other adults? Carnival Freedom is the first Conquest-class ship to feature the Adult-only Serenity Retreat. Prefer to stay close to the spa and still have a personal view of the sea? Eighteen of Carnival Freedom’s Spa Deck Ocean view staterooms now feature private balconies.

Carnival has also made it easier for your 12-14 year olds to have fun their way by adding their own “chill out” spot; Circle “C.” And for the ulitmate in freedom of choice, Carnival Freedom will unveil “Your Time Dining” if prefer.

Remember, it’s your choice to do   whatever you want — even if that’s nothing at all!  The CWB CRUISE will have lots if things to do with our group, but you are free to take advantage of all the many activities and amenities on board the ship as well, from shopping, gambling, catching a Las Vegas type show, AND DANCING with The EMBERS, featuring CRAIG WOOLARD BAND in our PRIVATE CLUB  – just for  OUR cruisers. Our cruise is catered to YOU! We have a great time, and even if  you don’t know anybody when you     board the ship, when you leave you will have MANY new friends!  

   Hit the Jackpot

Feeling lucky? Sure you are. Try your hand at poker, blackjack, roulette, craps and more – Just a sampling of the games the Jackpot Casino has in store. When it comes to blackjack, on board Carnival, every day we’re shuffling. Well, at least in international waters. So join a table and get dealt in for some pretty big payouts. Then just kick back and let the fun begin. (And hey – it’s the one time you can say “hit me” without sounding like a weirdo.)


Blessed by balmy breezes and jumping to a bouncy calypso beat, Carnival® cruises to Nassau, Bahamas promise sizzling fun in the sun. The historic and cultural heart of The Bahamas is one of the world’s most popular cruise ship ports—one million travelers board cruises to Nassau annually. Carnival cruisers come for fine beaches, shopping, water sports, and the fun-filled attractions at the Atlantis Resort, connected to Nassau by a bridge to Paradise Island. Double down at the casino at the Atlantis resort during your Nassau cruise. Shop for straw baskets and Junkanoo crafts in outdoor marketplaces. Kiss a dolphin at the Dolphin Swim at Blue Lagoon. Relax on the pink sands of Cable Beach. Stroll 18th-century colonial streets and climb the sandstone Queen’s Staircase.
Is this paradise, or what? Turquoise seas and crystal white and pink sandy beaches…I can’t wait!
And You can’t miss the famous CWB party at Senor Frogs …  
You have to experience it to know what we mean!
But there’s more…
What if you could visit an exclusive PRIVATE island paradise in the Carribbean?
Well, if you cruise with The CRAIG WOOLARD BAND, you can!

Half Moon Cay, The Bahamas

Fulfill your tropical island fantasy on Carnival cruises to Half Moon Cay, the Bahamas. Sway in the sweet Bahamian breezes to the rhythms of calypso and find romance on this private island paradise. Cruises to Half Moon Cay deliver you to an idyllic sun-drenched island hideaway where you can play in the turquoise seas, ride horseback on powdery white sand, and encounter silky stingrays. Sail, swim or snorkel the shallow blue-green Atlantic. Ride horseback along the sea’s edge on Half Moon Cay cruises.  Feel the velvety touch of a stingray’s wings in Stingray Cove. Sip a fruity rum punch in a Bahamian open-air bar.

A new Horseback Ride ‘n Swim excursion will allow guests to explore the island’s natural beauty on trails that are accessible only by horseback. Guests will be taken by jitney to stables at the center of the island where they will get a brief orientation before saddling up on these specially trained horses. During the ride, guides will share insight on Bahamian history, people and culture. The trail will lead guests to a deserted beach where they enjoy refreshments and can take an unforgettable swim in the sea with the horses.

Let the kids loose in the pirate ship at the Water Park;  join them in jet skiing or  parasailing over the sparkling sea….

Or, want to get away from the kids?  Rent your own private beach front cabana and spend the day in island luxury, soaking up the sun, relaxing in the island breezes, and smelling the fresh salt air….am I in heaven? Grapes anyone?

Half Moon Cay is built on 45 acres along a crescent-shaped white sand beach more than a mile in length that fronts on a protected bay leading west to Exuma Sound.

Half Moon Cay has won the Annual Editor-in-Chief Award for “Best Private Island” from Porthole Cruise Magazine for the past four years.

(That’s my favorite part – no housework, no cleaning, no cooking for 6 days! Do I have to go home?)

  Our 2013 Cruise was AWESOME!  

It was a SELL OUT,

and we expect 2014 will be the same.  

Hurry…Call NOW!

Don’t miss the Boat!

Cruising is fun and so simple – Passports are NOT required, but recommended if you plan to fly FROM the islands for any reason. If you do not have a passport, all you need is a CERTIFIED COPY (one with the RAISED seal) of your Birth Certificate, along with a CURRENT photo ID (driver’s license).


COME CRUISE WITH US and YOU will be saying it too…
