Blue Knights Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, Texas Chapter XXI, is sponsoring a benefit cruise for the Gingerbread House children’s advocacy center. Reservations piloted by the group fundraising travel specialist, Debbie Fuqua with DG Promotions, are being taken now for the seven-day Western Caribbean cruise, which departs Feb. 21, 2016, from Galveston.

“This is a charity fundraiser benefiting the Gingerbread House,” said Blue Knights TX XXI President Ken Reeves. “We want as many people from Ellis County as possible to join us onboard for a fun-filled vacation on the Carnival Magic. We’re hoping for a whole ship full of people.”

Ports of call include Montego Bay, Jamaica; Grand Cayman Island; and Cozumel, Mexico, with Reeves noting February is “the perfect time of year” to go on a cruise.

“When it’s cold here – and if 2016 is anything like 2015 with ice and snow – we’ll be away from it all and out in the warm Caribbean,” he said.

The Blue Knights LE/MC previously sponsored a cruise benefiting the Gingerbread House – and members are looking forward to this next one on the Carnival Magic.

“They treat you like a king up there,” said Blue Knights member Ray Pike. “It’s a huge ship and it’ll be a lot of fun.”

Reeves and Pike praise the Carnival Magic’s amenities, which include a spa deck, plenty of entertainment and “all you can eat” food, saying, “[The ship’s staff] will keep bringing it out until you’re done.”

DG Promotions will make a donation for each booking toward our Gingerbread House Cruise Fundraiser.

Interior rooms start from $600.70 per person, including port fees and taxes. A payment plan for the contracted rate can be set up via a deposit of $50 per person by April 20, with the last payment due Dec. 1, 2015. Optional components include a pre-paid gratuity of $12 per person per day and vacation protection insurance plans starting at $79 per person per interior and up.

Other online rates advertised by Carnival are available to be booked by DG Promotions, which are governed by the promotional rules of the fare. All rates are based on availability and are capacity controlled.

To be included in this event, bookings must be made through group and fundraising travel specialist Debbie Fuqua at 817-800-4510 or dgpromo@att.net, so the Gingerbread House will receive a donation for each cabin from DG Promotions – without any upcharges.
