Dear Traveller;       


             We are very excited to introduce a brand-new river cruise itinerary for 2018.  It is aboard CroisiEurope, one of the largest river cruise lines in Europe that is based in France.  It offers great value and comfortable accommodation.  We were pioneers and did many departures with them a few years back before river cruising really took off.  We have two river/cruise departures, one on April 24th and the other one on July 11th, 2018.  It is a unique itinerary cruising from Amsterdam to Berlin, which then continues by coach to Warsaw, Poland for a 3-night stay and touring before heading back to Canada.  This itinerary is only being offered by CroisiEurope, so reserve your cabin now as the space will sell out very quickly.  Our 2018 President’s river cruise/tour of Central Europe is from September 8 to 22, 2018.  You will begin in Prague, Czech Republic with a 3-night stay before embarking on a 9-day Elbe river sailing from Prague via Dresden to Berlin, Germany.  From here, you will continue by coach to Warsaw, Poland where you will spend 3-nights in a first-class hotel with local sightseeing and most meals. 

             If you wish to do some golfing while travelling in Africa, then our 25-day “Good Hope” train journey departing on January 26, 2018 may be of interest to you.  Travel from Pretoria to Cape Town visiting Kruger Park, Swaziland, Zululand, Garden Route, and Cape Town.  Optional golfing opportunities will be available at 9 different golf courses while in South Africa on this train journey.  Call us for more details on this unique option.

             New for Winter 2018 are sailings on Voyages to Antiquity to Cuba, Mexico, and the Caribbean aboard the Aegean Odyssey.  Join our 15-day group departure on January 27th from Havana to Antigua titled “Historic Islands of the Caribbean”.  Double loyalty savings are available to Odyssey Club members for bookings made on any of the winter sailings for a limited time, plus receive up to $300 US shipboard credit per cabin.

           We have a great selection of new European cruise itineraries with Norwegian Cruise Line in 2018, beginning with winter sailings from Barcelona to the Canary Islands, Madeira, Morocco, and Southern Spain.  In the spring and summer NCL will offer Northern Europe including Iceland, the British Isles, Scandinavian capitals, and Russia.  All our sailings offer exceptional pricing and all of them include an unlimited beverage package with already prepaid service charges and your shipboard gratuities.  Book your space soon, as we have a limited availability in balcony cabin spaces on each departure. 

             If you are still looking for last-minute travel in the latter part of this year, we still have limited space on two European adventures for this September.  One is an 18-day Athens stay and a Greek Isles cruise aboard a 49-passenger casual yet elegant classic yacht with a one-of-a-kind itinerary visiting as many as 18 ports of call. Many of the islands are to locations that most cruise ships are not able to visit.  Please visit the link below for more details.  The second is a first class 10-day coach tour of Switzerland followed by an 8-day river cruise on the Rhine from Basel to Amsterdam with AMA Waterways.  We also still have some space on a first-class land adventure to South Africa and Victoria Falls in Zambia for 24 days this October with a luxury 4-night game lodge stay with safaris.  Once again, please remember, you can always book any other land or cruise vacation with us that may not be listed on our website.


Wishing you great travels!
