President's Picks - March 2022

Post date: Author:

Good news on many travel fronts this month as the world sets in motion a safe transition to long-awaited normalcy. Stating that the health and safety of Canadians is the top priority, Transport Canada announced that Canada is open to cruise ships once again PLUS the American CDC has removed all advisories against cruising. This is excellent news for those wishing to travel close to home.

Travel is back and our journeys are filling quickly!

Holland America Line has just announced a limited time promotion with Canadian dollars at par on select cruises. This amounts to a savings of 20% or more! For those with Alaska on their bucket list, this might be the best opportunity you will have to enjoy the excellent service and experience on board a Holland America ship, now at even greater value. Applicable cruises depart from Canadian ports of call, with many visiting the scenic west coast and Alaska. This offer also applies to east coast sailings from or to Montreal visiting Canada & New England.

Both Ireland and the United Kingdom have announced this month that all COVID-19 travel restrictions are being removed for visitors! Canadians can once again enjoy the ease of travel as in years past, just in time for the spring and summer. Our Best of Ireland (16 days) is always one of our most popular annual journeys and we’re delighted that our two departures August 31 and September 21 will be operating as usual. Save $200 per person if confirming your space by April 29. We still have limited space available on our annual August tour of Scotland featuring the Edinburgh Tattoo.

David and Roslyn (Dad and Mom to me) are excited to be sailing with AmaWaterways this summer on our Melodies of the Danube/Oberammergau river cruise and tour August 11 – 25. The itinerary is jam-packed with one magnificent city after another along the mighty Danube, with spectacular sites that have inspired poets, artists and musicians for centuries. There is no better way to experience the magic than with AmaWaterways. In addition to the luxurious onboard experience, AmaWaterways never fails to offer unforgettable, enriching encounters that connect you to the history, culture, gastronomy and people in every port. This is truly a regal journey through time!

Following the cruise enjoy a five-night land journey as you cross the spectacular Alps taking in historical medieval towns along the way and finally arriving in the pretty alpine town of Oberammergau to attend the famous “Passion Play.” Those wishing to book the cruise portion only, may do so on a limited space available basis. Contact Stacey ( for details.
