We still have some cabins available for our wonderful Rhine River Christmas Markets Cruise from Amsterdam to Germany, France and Switzerland. December 2-13, 2014, but get moving and call this weekend.... 1 800.597.2452, press 2 and give the travel consultant our Group Code G4 20068 so you don't end up on the wrong cruise!!!! It's the most fun you can have to start your holidays off with a whole lot of fun!
Several of the Netherlands finest artisans will be joining us in Amsterdam...bringing their wares to sell onboard and joining us for dinner.....Valerie Casson has designed a special holiday mannequin for a great optional workshop that you'll love - she'll also be participating in our onboard mini miniatures show. If you're a dealer or closet mini crafter, bring your things to sell onboard!
Sylvia Leiner/Cinderella, will be joining us in Speyer accompanied by her wonderful mother, an accomplished painter. We will also visit a local miniatures collector there who is one of the most interesting people I've ever met. If you can spare the time, be sure to inquire about the pre and post cruise optional extensions....the pre is to Brussels, Bruges, Antwerp and a stop in Delft on the way to Amsterdam to board our ship....the post is in Basel, home of that internationally renowned museum of antique toys, teddys, dollhouses & room boxes (Nuremberg kitchens, plural, can you imagine!!), dolls and a shop you'll love.
All meals included, plus wine or soft drinks with lunch and dinner. Use Grand Circle Cruise Line's airfare or book your own, if you have un-used points from your gadding about!!!!! No you won't be seasick, we're on a river, Dear Hearts!! No crashing waves.
And we dress in layers, it's winter, after all, but I have NEVER needed long underwear. Caps/hats, gloves, yes - some years we've tromped around with jackets open....I have a wardrobe of sweat-pant-like fleece-lined slacks (no elastic at the ankle, like sweats have), that I have bought over the years at K Mart....other places have them, but K Mart is the cheapest...and they are so cuddly. I only wear these toasty black slacks...brand name, Ever Last. Topped with ageing Xmas sweaters and sweatshirts that my kids always made fun of....so NOW I'm able to celebrate the holiday season in retro style! Your lightweight things you can rinse out in your cabin. Or, there's always the ship's laundry. I save up several pair of slacks and give them to the ship's laundry to wash and dry, they do a great job.
This is a trip you and DH, best friend, sister, daughter...fill in the blank....MUST take sooner or later...and it might as well be with kindred spirits! Daniel Dammers is our Program Director....there is no one better in the WORLD! Our travelers rave about Daniel - he takes such good care of everyone in our group and as one traveler told me, "If I'd had this guy in school, I would have paid attention in History Class" - he is so knowledgeable and funny, as well!
