2010 Vacation Plans - Join Us

We've just about finished paying for our last vacation trip, so it seemed appropriate to book the next one. We try to schedule a good-serious-get-a-way vacation every two years. We've done that the last ten years now. The Princess cruise ship in the picture above is the ship we went to Alaska on in June of 2008. We wanted to do a Mediterranean cruise in 2010, but it's a lot more expensive then most other cruises and the politics of the region kind of discourages us right now. SO, because of some really good special fares right now, we booked a fifteen day cruise on this same ship that will leave Ft. Lauderdale on January 21, 2010, go to some really neat places, but most of all take two days to go through the Panama Canal. We've always wanted to take a vacation to some place warm in the dead of winter, so a fifteen day Panama Canal cruise, with good prices, fit the bill perfectly. It ends at LA, so both beginning and ending cities are serviced by Southwest Airlines, which has great one-way fares, especially to and from St. Louis.

We'd love to have you go with us. This isn't a group cruise, so just make your own arrangements with Princess or go through a travel agent if you want. Here's how to check it out. will get you to the web page. Click on Find & Compare Cruises, then Search Cruises. When the chart comes up, click on Panama Canal, 9-15 days, 2010 January. Our cruise is the fourth one down called Grand Panama Canal Cruise, on the Coral Princess, Jan.21, 2010. If you call Princess (at 1-800-Princess), tell them you want the advertised special prices with the free upgrades. Until April 17th, they have free upgrades of Oceanview to Balcony. Ask for any special prices. Our costs are not much higher than the 7 day Alaska Cruise last year. They need the customers!

Fifteen days away from cold winter weather! And it's only ten months away.
