The ship runs on Max Blumenthal's partisan rage. But hey, the last time Richard Dreyfuss was in the water, things turned out peachy.

Dear EmailNation Subscriber, We know that cruises aren't for everyone but they are for some people. So we want to invite you to The Nation's tenth annual seminar cruise. Setting sail from Seattle on July 28, Holland America's msOssterdam will travel through Alaska on a seven-day tour, returning to Seattle on August 4. You'd be joining a distinguished group of speakers who will all participate in a series of lectures, seminars, conversations and cocktail parties over the course of the voyage. Confirmed speakers include Richard Dreyfuss, Mark Hertsgaard, Ralph Nader, Liza Featherstone, Doug Henwood, Gary Younge and Salt Lake City's mayor, Rocky Anderson as well as many others soon to be named. They'll join Nation publisher emeritus Victor Navasky and Nation editor and publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel in what has always been both an enlightening exchange of ideas and a no-hassle, relaxing vacation. Each day and night you'll mingle with these Nation comrades – in both informal and formal settings. And dinner seating is arranged so that everyone has a chance to dine with the guest speakers. There's also ample opportunity for informal group sessions beyond the featured seminars, with topics generated by the cruisers themselves. And the cruise itinerary is said to be spectacular with stops in Juneau, Hubbard Glacier, Sitka, Ketchikan and British Columbia. We launched our seminar cruise series in 1998 to raise critical funds to help offset the magazine's chronic annual deficit. It's quickly grown into a popular excursion. Many of our past cruisers tell us that they had never before considered hitting the high seas for a vacation but that the Nation seminars tempted them into it; and they have no regrets. And we've partnered with Eco-Logic to re-forest a recently devastated area in Guatemala, paying for the planting of enough trees to offset the carbon emissions of each passenger on the Nation cruise. So, if you can, please consider joining The Nation this summer for a week you'll never forget. You can book cabins, review the ports of call and receive further information regarding the cruise by clicking here or by calling 1-888-833-4339.
