Ahoy, Raiders! Here is the chance of a lifetime to cruise the seas with Texas Tech’s ultimate Pirate: Coach Mike Leach!

Coach Leach, and his wife Sharon, will be leading us on a magnificent Alaskan Cruise courtesy of Regent Seven Seas Cruises. Conde Nast Traveler has listed Regent Seven Seas Cruises as the World’s Top-Rated Cruise Line. Mike and Sharon will also host the Denali Park Post-Cruise extension so you should consider adding that to your travel plans, as well.

Look over the full brochure and see for yourself what a wonderful adventure this will be. This special vacation is open to all Texas Tech fans and their family and friends. Notice that the tour price includes airfare from Lubbock, DFW, Houston and 18 other major departure cities across the United States. Be sure and check out all of the other features included in the basic Cruise Program.

We only have a limited number of cabins available on this amazing travel opportunity. We anticipate it will fill up very fast. A deposit of $850/person will guarantee your spot on this unique opportunity to travel with Coach Leach and to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. So act now and join us for the adventure of a lifetime.
