Cruisin’ through 2017!

ShipNote the change in dates! We apologize for any confusion. The trip dates are January 18 – 29. 

Well, we finally put together a date and place for our 2017 January cruise.  The entire trip will be a 11 night, 12 day adventure to the Southern Caribbean January 18-29.  This Love Boat adventure will not be the ‘Pacific Princess’ from the TV series but we will be spending 10 nights aboard the Royal Princess and we’ll also spend one night in Florida.  The final cost has yet to be determined because we still have to find out what the air fare will be but I can tell you it will be in the range of around $2650 for a balcony and around $2200 for an inside room.  There are no ocean view rooms on board this ship.  The price is always fluid on cruises so you want to get on board quickly.

We will be visiting 6 different ports.  They are…Aruba, Bonaire, Grenada, Dominica, St. Thomas and Princess Cays.

If you want to get on board for this fantastic trip, please give Lois a call at 262-363-9630.  She can fill you in with the monetary details and deadlines.  Having traveled on Princess a number of times, I think this will be a great trip.  Talk it over and give us a call.

Prep to beat the Winter Blues!! (UPDATED 8/24)

Call Today to reserve!Hello Fellow Cruisers,

Well, after doing a ton of research, I think we finally have a destination for a cruise going out in January, 2016. Here is what we have decided on: We will be departing Milwaukee on Friday, January 8, 2016 for our flight to Ft. Lauderdale via Southwest Airlines. It is a direct flight, departing at 6:10am and arriving in Florida at 10:30am. We will transport to the Ramada where we have spent our first night on these adventures before. The following morning, we will be transported to the pier in Ft. Lauderdale where we will board our ship, Carnival Conquest, our home away from home for the next 8 nights. Over those 8 nights we will be visiting St. Maarten, St. Kitts, San Juan and Grand Turk while spending 3 days at sea. Upon arrival back in Florida, we will be transported to the Ft. Lauderdale airport for our flight back to Milwaukee, leaving at 12:45 pm, stopping off in Atlanta for a short 40 minutes and then on to Milwaukee where we will arrive at 4:40 pm.

There are four choices for you to select from for this cruise. You can go either Inside, Ocean view, Balcony or Suite. The price right now for the balcony is $1600 per person. That price includes the cruise, airfare, transportation to and from in Florida and the hotel room. The price is based upon double occupancy. I also have a price for the Ocean view. That would be $1350.

These prices go up almost daily so you want to decide quickly. Then once you do, you need to contact the person we are working with. Her name is Lois. You can reach her at 262-363-9630. Once again, her name is Lois and she is waiting to hear from you. We were able to reserve enough seats before the category sold out. Inside and suites will be determined by Lois if she can get them. The prices above do not include travel insurance. I highly recommend you take it when you discuss it with Lois. She will be able to fill you in on all of the aspects of the plan.

Balcony Room (Double Occupancy) $1,600/person

Ocean view (Double Occupancy) $1,350

Departure Date: Thursday, January 8, 2016

New Video Post

Looking to get an insider’s sneak peak of the “Chip Experience”? Don’t miss this chance to witness, first hand, the fun the gang had in October on their way to Frankenmuth, a nearly annual trek for great friends – new and old!

We’re Back – from Tunica!!

We’re back from Tunica and what a great time we had.  Although the temperature was up there, the fun just did not stop.  Check out the video and you’ll see some of what we saw and did.  The fun started on the bus ride down to Tunica and never stopped until we got home.  The food was great and the southern hospitality was unbeatable.

Visits to Graceland and Beale Street were highlights of the trip.  And at least 80% of the group managed to visit all 9 casinos in the Tunica area.  Although hurricane Isaac was in the area, it didn’t interrupt our visit.  We managed to leave prior to the rains hitting the area.

This is one area we will be sure to visit again.  I want to thank all of those who went and made this such a super fun excursion.
