It's one of Grand Circle Cruise Lines most popular trips, great cabins - with choice of one bed or twins. As I write, we have 2 cabins on the top deck and 2 on the middle deck, the same level that you enter the ship. Heads up, if you're serious about wanting to join us, any remaining cabins will revert to GCT's general inventory on Friday, Aug 7, 2015.... and after that, they'll disappear in a NY minute! This luxury experience is made so, by having only 50 passengers on each voyage.... like having our own private yacht - with the captain, crew, chef and dining room staff ever present to make sure your every need is met. I advise taking the optional three night pre-trip to Aix en Provence - a charming small town, easily managed. It's fun just to sit outside a cafe and people- watch! Your cultural itch receives it scratch with four included days in fabulous Florence - a medieval town that will become among your favorite places to visit. Our ports of call include Cannes, St Paul de Vence, Nice, Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino (be sure to have a gelato here!), Porto Venere, Cinque Terre, Marina di Carrara, Corsica, Elba Island, Livorno, Lucca and Florence. Included: 31 meals, including 14 breakfasts, 8 lunches and 9 dinners ~ including beer, wine and soft drinks at both lunch and dinner. Be sure to make your deposit today, as Friday, Aug 7th any remaining cabins are up for grabs.
Call Grand Circle Cruise Lines 800.597.2452, press 2 and give them my Group's Code # G6-20068 and our departure date, Dec 1, plus the name of this cruise.
Can't wait to travel with you again...or for the first time!

CHRISTMAS MARKETS ON THE RHINE CRUISE

Give a gift to yourself!
If you've always wanted to join me and other kindred spirits on one of Grand Circle Cruise Line's magical Christmas Markets cruises - this is your lucky break...and chance to make your bucket list wish become a reality!
I'm thrilled to tell you that our original departure date for the 2016 Rhine River Christmas Markets Cruise, from Amsterdam to Basel Switzerland has been changed to December 3-14, with optional pre and post-cruise extensions. The pre-trip is to Brussels, with Markets deemed among the very best, I've been told by some of my travelers who've been there - who call them "fabulous"! The post optional extension trip is to the wonderful city of Basel, home to not only great watches, chocolate, fondue, and wonderful Markets, but also the incredible museum of antique toys, dolls, dollhouses and miniatures that you see every month in our favorite US miniature magazines.
This terrific Grand Circle Cruise Line's for price for the Dec 3 sailing departure was priced at a much higher rate because of its prime time sailing days, returning you in plenty of time to enjoy the season with your family and friends. But since the company is making the change, it's giving all of you who were contemplating coming along on my Group Trip that WAS going to depart on Nov 27, have the opportunity to make your deposit of $500 pp now and receive the original lower departure date rate starting at $1,695 to $1,945 pp. Prices are per person, River Cruise option only, based on double occupancy, and choice of deck and cabin selection - all outside cabins, compared to many other cruise ships! Traveling solo, I'll find you a kindred spirit to share with!
With yet another option, letting Grand Circle's air department book your rt flights for you, for example, $1,000 round trip per person out of New York, Newark or Boston.LaGuardia, $1100 per person departing from Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Miami or Washington Dulles, and $1,200 per person flying from Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco or Seattle....or book your own airfare, using accrued mileage in your airline mileage packages. Additional departure cities are available.
This great departure date and rate is available to you until April 16, 2016...or until the ship is sold out, whichever comes first. After that date, it reverts to the departure's original higher rate for those making deposits after the April 16 deadline. You and your friends can still sign up, but you'll pay $1,000 more per person, you're saving $2,000 a couple, right off the bat by signing up now! It's a win/win situation all the way around...and I'm grateful to Grand Circle for making it happen.
Regional dealers bring their wares and join us for dinner onboard the ship in Amsterdam before we set sail - so we start the miniatures part of this trip from the get go. We have a gift exchange that everyone loves. If you're a Dealer or Artisan who has always wanted to come on the cruise - bring your product to sell at our onboard mini miniatures show. If you stay for the Basel extension, I'll introduce you to the famous museum's curator, who loves to stock her museum shop's shelves with your incredible work. Ask Josephine Meyer, Carl Bronsdon, Karen Markland and Lady Bug about their experiences! You can even teach an onboard workshop - are you clicking up the tax benefits available, by joining us!
I'll send you a brochure soon, containing this revised information I've just shared with you. Send me your mailing address asap. Better yet, make your deposit now with Grand Circle by calling them now for best selections of deck and cabin, at 1 800 597 2452, press 2 and give them my Group's Code: "G6 20068" All cabins are double occupancy, except for very few singles, available...they go quickly. But if you're traveling solo, let me know, I'll match you with another kindred spirit...or call your sister, your BFF or your DH and ask them if they want to share the trip of a lifetime with you...bring your camera, there are castles galore on this route...you will have included tours in Nijmegen, oldest town in the Netherlands, then glorious towns in Germany: Cologne - fabulous for its Christmas Markets, Roman ruins, plus its magnificent Gothic Cathedral - a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We'll explore the Markets in Koblenz, enjoy the grand architecture of Mainz and its Gutenberg Museum, visit Speyer or take an optional visit to Heidelberg, travel through the Black Forest to Baden-Baden, enjoy a boat trip in Strasbourg, another UNESCO World Heritage Site then enjoy their Markets, and finally, the fairy tale city of Kaysersburg, France, with wonderful Markets plus visit the Albert Schweitzer Museum...and finally, Basel, Switzerland, where you'll board a flight to return home. Stay over with me for the optional extension, you'll love it.
