Cruise with PMQ!

Have you been cruising with PMQ yet?

I go around the country meeting operators and eating great pizza, but one of the most fun times is having dozens of pizza operators all together, relaxing out on the open sea during our annual Pizza Cruise! It’s a riot to see them dancing the night away in the ship’s nightclub, or betting “just one more chip” in the late night casino.

Of course we do some learning on a couple of the days, but the rest of the time we all just kick back and have a great time enjoying the camaraderie that comes along with being in the same industry and dealing with the same problems. It’s a great environment to learn from one another and make friends that last for years to come–and enjoy some time off!

This time we’re sailing to the Mexican Riviera, Feb. 8-15, 2009. I would personally love to vacation with the people who I’ve talked with over the phone, met at shows, conversed with through email and addressed in the magazine. I’ve never met a pizza person I didn’t like!

October 13th is the deadline to book a room at our special PMQ rate, so please contact our cruise specialist, Sharon Viotto at 1-888-799-7447 TODAY! You can also visit for more info.

See you on board!!!

I am going to bite the bullet and leave the shop for the first time in four years. Who else is going on the cruise? You will get to meet the guy who lives in a charmed world and is angry with life :lol:

You won’t regret it. The Pizza Cruise is an action packed, fun filled pizza adventure! Turn the cell phone off, and forget about the shop for a few days, and bask in the fact that you can sleep in late, have a leisurly breakfast top side, or in your room (bummer). Then partake in the planned activities which can include anything from a shore adventure (sight seeing, tours, or PMQ classes taught by industry leaders) or if you were out late the night before, maybe just hang around the pool. Lunch will be on your own, but dinner will be with other PMQ cruisers. What a blast! This is an opportunity to get to know your fellow cruises, have a great dinner with lots of fun and laughter to boot. Afterward, ther may be a scheduled PMQ event, such as a social, or you can go “clubbing”, see a show, or if you really feel lucky, hit the casino. You won’t get sea sick, and you will have a great time!
