As summer winds down and a new season peaks around the corner, thoughts and plans are turning towards brighter days and hopefully a return to some normalcy. We are cautiously optimistic as we finalize destinations, itineraries, dates and contracts for 2021 and beyond. In this issue of Travel Talk our theme touches on cultural greetings from around the world. What a timely topic as we explore how countries welcome their international guests as destinations start to relax their arrival restrictions. Heaven knows how we all look forward to being greeted when we arrive for our next vacation!
We’re excited to introduce two new trips next year and the greetings will all be Canadian! In June, our new Maritimes tour will take us from the stunning scenery along the Cabot Trail, to the picturesque towns of PEI, into quaint St. Andrews by-the-Sea, across the Bay of Fundy through the lush Annapolis Valley and to Lunenburg and Halifax. Join Donna Rombough on this delightful journey!
Also in Canada, is our new Newfoundland Circumnavigation Cruise in October, 2021. I invite you to join me as we explore “The Rock” on the purpose-built Adventure Canada cruise ship, Ocean Endeavor. We will explore fascinating ports, even making a quick stop in New France at Saint-Pierre along the way. Local experts will provide lectures on the region’s history, geology and ecology and out on deck the stunning beauty of our nation’s coastal waters and rocky coast, sea birds, and small fishing villages will have us falling in love with this magnificent part of Canada. On October 1st we will be hosting a live online information session that we invite you to attend. It will provide in depth information on this very exciting journey, an opportunity to win a great prize and a chance to ask questions. There are major savings if you reserve your space by October 30, 2020, so be sure to join us!
Plans are progressing well on our Oberammergau 2022 programs. Virtually all of our 2020 Oberammergau departures were sold out before COVID-19 arrived and we are as eager as you are for the 2022 season. There are already deposits on close to 50% of the spaces in 2022. We anticipate that once details are available this fall, the remaining space for 2022 will not last long. Watch our website for all of the details early this fall. Those who wish can put down a fully refundable pre-deposit on 2022 Oberammergau trips now.
Keep in mind our current Book With Confidence policy when considering reserving space on most of our 2021 departures. This policy allows fully refundable deposits on most journeys until 95 – 60 days prior to departure. Ask one of our Sales Specialists for details.
Enjoy this issue of Travel Talk!
