Is there a non-kosher price? Please no jokes!
I just found a new supply of forks!

Might have considered but was told that being a student at DDF doesn't qualify for Student discount, and being ExGingi disqualified me from youth discount.  :(
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

It approximately $2000 less than the early bird special.

Why is the student discount only 18-21

Ship's rules  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I believe that's fairly typical for a student discount though.

Kosherica has a cruise that departs on a Wednesday - https://www.kosherica.com/southeastasia_cruises/southeastasia.asp?cruise_id=3387 and another that departs on a Friday - https://www.kosherica.com/newyork_cruises/newyork.asp?cruise_id=3388
Yup, been through this. Must be some sort of heter for it. Though it's unlikely to apply to the Drake passage.

Looking to buy a bunch of One Ocean Expeditions suite upgrade certificates.

Willing to pay an arm and a leg. I'd pay more but I don't have much else left after paying for a standard cabin.....

Pm with offers.

Halachipedia claims rav belsky permits it (not specifically drake passage - but some would argue that can give people more oneg shabbos !)

These cruises can be booked for 5k if you haggle last minute and there’s room.

It's expensive, but at the end of the day you'll be happier spending $$$$$ on experiences rather than goods.
