Please get your name on the list by October 31st so we can give them the number of seats we will need. We will collect the whole payment on Thursday, November 7th from 9:30 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. If this is not convenient, please call 304-478-2423 to make other arrangements.
We can still take deposits for our cruise to the Southern Caribbean February 6 – 18, 2021. The deposit is $100 and needs to be paid as soon as possible to hold the cabin. We only have so long before the tour company has to turn the cabins back over to the cruise line and then if you can get a cabin, the price may go up. We’ve had several questions. We want to let you know that this will be a bus trip to Baltimore, MD to get on the ship. There is NO air flight involved. The prices are $1600, $1650, or $2000 depending on the type of cabin you want. If you need further details, please call Linda Bonner at 304-478-2423.
