LAST CHANCE - Only four cabins left on 2008 "Caribbean Cruise"; Oct. 9 deadline looming

  • Print
This has quickly become our best-selling cruise ever - and now there are just a few more days left to jump on board this amazing vacation deal.545t[1].jpg Journey's Travel and Leisure Supercentre tells me there are only 4 CABINS LEFT, and that they can only be held until Oct. 9 because of the high-demand for cruising these days.If you're planning on a tropical vacation at sea this winter, I encourage you to scan the information below and call Journey's ASAP at (204) 942-5000 in Winnipeg or toll-free at 1-800-859-6354.More than 25 people have already signed up - and you'll be hard-pressed to find a better deal anywhere else!Here's a quick summary of what this cruise is all about.-You will depart Thursday January 24/08, overnight in Miami, and then depart on the ship Friday January 25 and return Sunday February 3.-You will be on board a brand new ship, the Norwegian Pearl, touring through the exotic Southern Caribbean.-You'll visit five ports of call - Tortolo, Antigua, St. Lucia, Barbados and the Dominican Republic. There are three days “at-sea”ONLY 4 INSIDE STATEROOMS LEFT – $1,971 per person!Price includes: Return airfare, cruise (all meals and entertainment included), hotel in Miami, Florida night before cruise, all transfers, welcome aboard cocktail party, one shore excursion (whale and dolphin watching), and Journey’s gift certificate.This is shaping up to be the most exciting of the three cruises my wife Chassity and I will have had the pleasure of hosting. Here’s why:-It is longer, 9 days instead of 7, as several of our past cruisers have expressed an interest in going for a couple more days. Who can blame them??? You won’t want to leave either!-It is on a brand new ship. The Norwegian Pearl just launched in December, so it should still have the “new ship smell” when we climb aboard!-It is more exotic. And likely hotter. And with even more to do. The Southern Caribbean ports of call are truly wonderful, and we have heard great stories about them all from many veteran cruisers. Perhaps the best part about them are the volume of off-shore excursions to choose from, which are certainly far greater then what we’ve had the first two years. It seems like there’s an activity for absolutely everyone.As you likely know, signing on for a “group” cruise is simply a great way to get a better rate. Because our sponsor, Journey’s Travel, is buying in bulk, they can secure much better pricing then what an individual couple could get.As well, it’s a great way to experience new things with like-minded folks who may end up becoming good friends.However, don’t think going with a group means you won’t get to chart your own adventure. You will have all the time in the world to do absolutely everything you like. There are no commitments whatsoever.If you’d like to simply treat it as if you were just going by yourselves – yet taking advantage of the discounted group rate – there’s nothing wrong with that.If you’d like to hang out with some of the other Canadian cruisers in the group, well, you’re more than welcome as well. In the past two years, we usually ate dinners as a group and took in a few nightly theatre shows together. But with the exception of our on-board cocktail party and the one included group excursion, everyone has tended to go their own way the remainder of the time. It’s been a perfect mix of private time and socializing.If you are thinking this would be a great way to get away for a bit this winter, don’t hesitate!You can email me for more information ( or call Journeys as soon possible.PHONE: 942-5000 in Winnipeg or toll-free at 1-800-859-6354.Hope to see you on board!
