This is it. I’ve signed out of work and am hitting the roads taking care of last minute chores for SQL Cruise 2012 Caribbean Keen Edition. Thank you to everyone who continues to support what I’m trying to accomplish on SQL Cruise: technical training, soft-skills enhancement, and recharging the batteries of DBAs adventurous enough to attend. I particularly want to single out the following companies and individuals whom have either directly contributed to supporting SQL Cruise by sponsoring the events over the years or have attended one of the SQL Cruises I’ve been producing since 2010:
Sponsors of All SQL Cruise Events
Brent Ozar PLF
Edgewood Solutions / MSSQLTips.com
Current and Past Presenters
Former and Current SQL Cruisers

I also want to thank those individuals that have helped to spread the word along the way to the SQL Community and the world about SQL Cruise or who have provided support, guidance, publicity, and all those things friends shouldn’t take for granted but often do. I know I am leaving out a great number of people but please understand this happens with age.
Friends of SQL Cruise
I Told You So
When I’m told that SQL Cruise is too small to have a significant reach can simply look at those names on this list and the amount of impact they have on the global SQL Server Community and know that statement is wrong.
I can look back on the last two years with pride and see what impact SQL Cruise has had on my Cruisers’ lives both professionally and personally. MVP awards. Presidential assignments. Career advancements. Friendships and networking that have led to great things…
The Journey is Almost Complete
It’s been a great trip that’s about to conclude with the cruise that starts this week and the final SQL Cruise, Alaska 2012 this May. Perhaps you’ll join us and be one of the success stories of SQL Cruise.
Thank you all. It’s been a joy and the most fulfilling thing I’ve ever done professionally.
