7 Night Alaskan Cruise on Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas!

Set out on a seven-night Alaska adventure from Seattle and snag a front row seat to towering glaciers and snow-capped peaks onboard Quantum of the Seas®. From RipCord® by iFLY® skydiving simulator to the robotic bartenders of the Bionic Bar®, this adventure packed ship has endless ways to fill your days between scenery scoping and wilderness wandering across spectacular shores like Juneau and Sitka.

The paper crafting portion of this cruise is optional for cruise attendees and will consist of more than 25 OVER THE TOP handmade projects (including but not limited to cards, gift packaging, tags, etc.)! If you are a beginner crafter, you are acknowledging that these are not beginner projects. All of the projects will be created with brand new 2025 Stampin’ Up! products! 



August 4 – 11, 2025



Our itinerary is roundtrip from Seattle, Washington. Join us as we visit Juneau, Sitka, Skagway and Victoria, British Columbia.



Because… CRAFTING and CRUISING… what could be more fun!?


Your cruise cabin must be booked through Ahoy Travel, Eva Wallert, to participate in the crafting event. This is required so that we are able to use the conference room space for the week by fulfilling the group bookings requirement of RCCL.

A non-refundable $75 registration fee is due to hold your spot in the crafting event and the balance, in the form of an online order through the online store, will be ordered in June 2025. This order will be for $150 in Stampin’ UP! products (+ tax and shipping) which you will BRING WITH YOU on the cruise to complete your projects.

You will use a specific Host Code (to be provided in June 2025) when placing the order. We will provide a “hostess code” and a list of products that you will need to purchase through the online store and bring with you to complete your projects while onboard. We will bring your Tote full of your project kits and extra goodies. (**Even if you are a demonstrator you will need to place the order through Kurstan! The Stampin’ Rewards will be used to purchase the additional card stock and supplies needed to put the project kits together. This is not optional.)

You will bring your basic crafting kit, with essentials such as scissors, adhesives, bone folder, tweezers or other items you keep handy when crafting. We also ask that you bring a paper trimmer. We will have some available but some prefer not to wait or use their own. Everything else will be provided (stamps, die cutting machine, inks, etc). Please label your items so they find their way home if left in the room after your visit.

The project stations will be self-paced and “open-house style”. You can take your time and come and go as you please, all week. We’ll also set aside one evening for Pajama Crafting. We will have everything set up with separate project stations and there will be plenty of room for everyone. Crafting will be in the gorgeous Conference Room, and Kurstan & I be in the Conference Room periodically during the “at sea days” to answer questions, help and socialize!

While on-board you can craft anytime you wish, and we will have two and a half days (2.5) at sea including:

  • FUN with new and old friends!
  • Over the Top Projects!
  • Awesome Goodie Bags and Surprises!
  • Card swapping!
  • Extra product giveaways on the last evening of the Cruise (YOU take it home so I don’t have to!)

The paper crafting portion of this event WILL sell out!! We are required to limit capacity based on RCCL guidelines for using the shared conference space. Your $75 fee secures your spot to craft.

To secure your spot for the paper crafting portion of the cruise please:

  1. Book your cabin directly with our travel agent below. Payment plans are available. Cabin Payment is due in FULL by May 6, 2025.
  2. Fill out the registration form to secure your crafting seat AFTER your cabin is booked: 
  3. Pay a non-refundable $75 registration fee:   Venmo: @kurstan-delrosario  or PayPal: Kurstan will send an invoice (payment must be made to secure your spot)
