A Little More Cruising!!!!
It really is hard to get enough of the cruising experience......laid back, have folks take care of your every need, enjoy real good food.....and plenty of it if you wish, quality entertainment every night that you've already paid for, enrichment programs covering various subjects, interesting active or inactive excursions in every port, or just enjoying the pleasure and time to read a good book, not to mention the opportunity to visit places you've always read about or heard of. Cruising is all that....and more!!
Two weeks ago we escorted a group on the largest ship in the world, the Symphony of the Seas. She exposes 6,000 guests to an unbelievable cruise experience each week. Then, on last weeks program, I talked about a Viking river cruise planned for next June on the Elbe River. That ship will have room for only 98 persons, but the experience and attention to detail will be much the same.
Which brings me to announce another fantastic cruising opportunity for 2020, cruising the Mediterranean, Agean, and Adriatic Seas, starting in Rome and ending in Barcelona. It is a 14-night cruise visiting all the Greek islands including Crete, Santorini, Mykonos, Corfu, and also a call at Athens. Also we will call at Kotor, Montenegro twice, Naples twice, and Sicily.
All that cruising experience will be on Princess Cruise Line's brand new ship, the Enchanted Princess. They are in the process of constructing that ship right now in anticipation of her being in service at the beginning of June, 2020. So, by the time our group gets on her the leadership and staff will already have the new kinks worked out just in time for us.
The dates for that group cruise begins on August 22 to September 5, 2020.
Princess currently has a promotion going that is really outstanding!!! The traveler gets over a $200 discount on the base rate, and as a result his insurance is about $25 less expensive, plus there is $500 on-board-credit offered to everyone. And, as an additional bonus for all those who have served in the military, they offer an additional $100 on-board-credit.
The promotion is over on August 31, and if it is like the ones they have had for the past couple of years, they will have another promotion, but not this good. Which is why I always say that one needs to make vacation plans early to get the best “deals”.
The bonus in going with The Travel Factory Gang is that you will get a monthly newsletter focusing on the different ports of call among other cruising tidbits, a host agent will accompany the group, group amenities that individual bookers will not have access, and before we travel, we will have a pre-cruise dinner/document party.....all at no additional expense!!!!
The encouragement is to give The Travel Factory experienced advisors a call today for reservations on one of those “Gang” cruises, or any cruise, or an all-inclusive resort vacation.......we've either been there or done that within those combined 120 plus years experience in the travel industry.
