Dear Traveller;


I trust you are enjoying the summer sunshine with your family and friends. 

I would like to share with you new itineraries with Princess Cruises.  One is a close to home cruise to New England and Canada during the fall colours next October.  The other is our new land and cruise package to Japan in September 2018 during the autumn season.  It is our special package that includes a 7-day pre-cruise first class land tour with highlights of Japan, prior to a 17-day Princess Cruise sailing around Japan and visiting Russia’s Far-East.  We also have a great selection of extended unique sailings out of Brisbane and Sydney, Australia to remote Papua New Guinea, Fiji, New Caledonia, with sailings around New Zealand and Australia for winter 2019.   The voyage around Australia in March 2019 already has more than half of the ship booked.  I suggest securing your space soon.  Book any of these cruises now and receive up to $200 US shipboard credit per cabin.  Please view all these new itineraries under the Australia / Hawaii / South Pacific section on our website.  

Space is filling up on our two exclusive departures on April 24th and July 11th, 2018 on a 16-day river cruise/tour package with a 12-day river cruise of Holland and Germany from Amsterdam to Berlin, followed by a 3-night post cruise hotel stay in Warsaw, Poland.  On this river cruise, you will explore other parts of northern Germany in comfort aboard CroisiEurope, which delivers a great value for your money.  This is an all-inclusive package and fully hosted from Toronto.  Our April 24th sailing will also include a visit to the beautiful Keukenhof gardens during the tulip time festival in Holland! 

Next May join us on a 16-day land tour package of Finland’s Lapland and Norway.  Lapland is its northernmost region in Finland which has 24-hour sunlight for nearly 3 months and is the gateway to the region and homeland of the indigenous Sami people.  This also includes a 6-day classic Arctic circle cruise along the beautiful coast of Norway sailing southbound from Kirkenes to Bergen.  It’s followed by a 2-night hotel stay in Bergen and 3-nights in Oslo, capital city of Norway.  It also incudes a scenic ride which will take you on a spectacular 50-minute journey to the town of Myrdal, at which point you will embark upon a rail journey to Oslo that offers unforgettable scenery along the way.  



Our “Best of Ireland & Scottish Highlands” is an exclusive departure.  It is an 18-day package with a 9-day first class coach tour around southern and Ireland and then flying to Edinburgh for a two-night stay.  This is followed by a 6-day cruise of the Scottish Highlands from Inverness to Oban concluding with an overnight stay in Glasgow, Scotland.

Our 2018 European cruises with Norwegian Cruise Line sails to the Canary Islands during the winter months from Barcelona.  We still have space on select sailings out of London, England to the British Isles, Norway, and Iceland from May to September 2018.  Balcony space is already getting limited on most sailings and all our prices are simply unbeatable and are exclusive to Expo Cruises & Tours.  Just a reminder that all our advertised European sailings with NCL do include all taxes, shipboard gratuities, and a free unlimited beverage package with prepaid service charges.  These inclusions make it simply an amazing value and it’s a good choice for an independent traveler.

I am pleased to say that our recent introduction of a new 2019 President’s cruise/tour adventure for spring 2019 is being well received by the true seasoned travelers.  It is a luxury 21-day cruise/tour expedition with Silversea Cruises, aboard the Silver Cloud Expedition.  It sails along the West coast of Africa from Accra, Ghana visiting the Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone, Gambia, Senegal, and Morocco.  We will conclude our adventure in Lisbon, Portugal with a 2-night hotel stay.  There is already very limited space availability in the vista suite category.  If you are looking for something different and an expedition style adventure in luxury.  Click here to view all the details, or on the Silversea Cruises banner below.
