Hi all

Next February I have some spare time (14th-24th Feb) when I need to go away by myself, and I thought a good bridge cruise might be fun. Anyone know of anything suitable?

Why not do a "Google" search under the heading "Bridge Cruises" and see what comes up (?)

There are some listed in English Bridge magazine. I think it's important to go on a bridge cruise rather than a cruise with bridge if you want to have the best chance of decent games.

There are advertisements for bridge cruises (some including noted players, like Marty Bergen) in the ACBL Bulletin.

Most agree that the best bridge cruises are run by Larry Cohen. Check out his website, www.larryco.com

If it's a sanctioned regional at sea, Larry has an exclusive arrangement with the league. Not sure about sectionals.

Other hosts run teaching sessions with 18 board club games.
