If you follow Operation Relax on Facebook, it's likely you've seen our posts regarding the upcoming Bombshells in the Bahamas cruise, being led by Atomic Bombshells owner Andrea. The cruise on the Carnival Valor will be leaving Port Canaveral February 5, 2017 and will be hitting up both Freeport and Nassau in the Bahamas. You probably also saw the cool perks of sailing with this group, including being able to show off your fave vintage-inspired looks, a special cocktail party, and a $50 onboard credit per room, all of which are included in the crazy-good prices starting at only $288 per person plus taxes & fees!
But did you know how we determined the date of the cruise?
First, we brainstormed a list of some of our favorite pin up girls from back in the day. The list included notable favorites like Marilyn Monroe, Bettie Page, and Rita Hayworth. Then, we looked at available cruise dates and rates for a few of the months that we felt would be most promising in terms of availability of cabins, lower fares and potentially lower airfares, and months that worked best for a busy entrepreneur's schedule.
Using that information, we were able to narrow it down to one of our pin up girl's birthdays - February 8. Guess who it was? The infamous "Sweater Girl" herself, Lana Turner! Lana's discovery by a movie agent in a soda shop is a Hollywood legend, and her work in They Won't Forget (1937) led to her nickname thanks to a tight sweater and a bullet bra. While she was never fond of the nickname, she was a very successful actress and pin up girl for most of her career.
It was that simple! :) And it can be that simple for you to put together your own group cruise with Operation Relax, too. Right now is a great time to take advantage of group perks and rates, and we'd be happy to work with you!
