PLANNING: Save the Date to “Get Lost with Austin” Bar Mitzvah Cruise

One of our TOTALLY COOL clients came to us looking for creative and interesting ideas on where and how to throw their SUPER COOL son Austin’s Bar Mitzvah.  What could they do that was completely fresh and unheard of?  Have we heard this request before?  OF COURSE.  In fact, we heard it from this very client when they came to us to plan their daughter Sydney’s Bat Mitzvah two years ago!  (but that’s another story).

NOW, WHAT CAN WE DO FOR AUSTIN?  After talking to Austin it was clear that he wanted to share quality TIME with his family and friends over many days, not just for a few hours at a party.  Who would have thought he’d come up with a five day CRUISE the week before Christmas?   That Austin, he’s a clever one.   One of his favorite TV shows is “LOST” and he’s invited 100 of his friends and family to “Get Lost with Austin” for a week in the Western Caribbean.  The cruise ship, the Navigator of the Seas, is an unbelievable vessel that includes a  rock-climbing wall, a basketball court, an ice-skating rink and an in-line skating track. Dare we say there’s more? What about a five-story theatre, a casino, a miniature golf course and a spectacular three-story dining room?  The 138,000-ton nautical wonder has it all and will sail to Jamaica, Haiti and Miami.  Austin’s guests will enjoy family-style dinners, private cocktail parties, basketball tournaments, a private disco club as well sandy beaches, rain forests, waterfalls and fun-filled days in the surf.  Bring on the SUNSCREEN!

Take a look at the fantastic Save the Date below that includes a wooden box burned with his custom logo, a message-in-a-bottle containing a detailed map of the cruise and a “passport” containing all the relevant travel information.
