Our personally escorted cruise experiences comprising our CRUISE COLLECTION are more inclusive than you will find elsewhere.
We have every itinerary of every cruise line available for our individual travelers right here in our offices. From this vast array of opportunities to destinations like the Caribbean, Hawaii, Europe, Greek Isles, Mediterranean, Panama Canal, Alaska, the rivers of the world, Orient, and all the other destinations comprising today's world of cruising, we annually select a few unique and rewarding itineraries to be included in our personally escorted collection. Cruise ships and cruise itineraries by design vary from year to year, changing to reflect the desires of our repeat cruisers and also being selected to provide a variety of cruise experiences.
RIVER CRUISING - todays "hottest" travel experience - so new and innovative it's "Inspired" - with never before available included enhancements! In foreign countries sightseeing, often with individually controlled listening receivers so you don't miss a word, is included - all meals are included - often wine is included, if you like, with dinner, while champagne also sometimes included, if you like, for breakfast - and something really worthwhile that has just been instituted by Avalon Waterways is different levels of sightseeing activity so that "you alone" control the pace and all aspects of your foreign sightseeing experiences. In the United States there has been a "Rebirth of Steamboating in America" with the reintroduction - under new ownership - of the American Queen plying the Mississippi and other famous rivers. We'll be hosting a "sold out" November special "premiere" departure.
As is true on all specially-designed Please Go Away™ Vacations departures, our exclusive 100% RESERVATION DEPOSIT REFUND GUARANTEE is in place for your protection.
This special collection is one of the four "collections" that make up our unique program of select personally escorted adventures. MORE OPPORTUNITIES for you at EXPEDITIONS COLLECTION, LAND/AIR COLLECTION and the CLASSIC COLLECTION.
The CRUISE COLLECTION presently consists of the featured opportunities shown on the right hand side of this page. Detailed brochures can be viewed by entering the individual links. Unless otherwise indicated on the brochure, each departure is governed by our normal Terms and Conditions.
Each departure features all-inclusive pricing, meaning that everything shown on the brochure is included in the price shown. All inclusive pricing also includes Travel Protection insurance. Prices shown on each brochure reflect included transportation from Central U.S., however, connecting travel arrangements are easily arranged for our travelers from other areas, and brochure prices are adjusted accordingly. Reservations easily made on any departure by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, calling us at 800-362-9347, or printing and using the Reservation Form available.
SINGLE TRAVELER OPPORTUNITIES - Quite often we have both male and female travelers that have reserved, but are without a traveling companion to share accommodations. This creates money saving opportunities for other single travelers of the same gender to avoid costly single supplement charges. We "never" arbitrarily assign roommates, with the exception of our Guaranteed Share program available to persons agreeing to a non-smoking policy on motor coach departures. On all other departures we "always" will, with the approval of both parties, arrange for prospective sharers to meet or correspond so they can independently make a decision as to whether they desire to pursue this money-saving opportunity. Inquire as to availabilities.
FRIENDSHIP BONUS PLAN - Our continued success and rapid growth over the past 41 years have largely been due to repeat travelers and travelers who recommend our one-of-a-kind travel experiences to their friends and family who have not "gone away" with us before. To tangibly show our appreciation for such recommendations we have created an exclusive Friendship Bonus Plan, which provides the recommending party their choice of a 1% cash bonus or 2% future travel credit bonus. Percentages are applied to what recommended persons pay for their travels. There is no limit on number of persons that can be recommended or bonus amounts that can be achieved. 84% of recipients select the future travel credit bonus.
Pricing is always "all inclusive", meaning that you are not surprised with unexpected and/or hidden charges. The price you see is the price you pay. Such things as travel protection insurance, airfares, transfers, taxes, gratuities for luggage handling, government fees, etc. are all included in the price.
Also, every cruise experience has been made even better by the addition of bonuses and perks not found elsewhere. Examples are: extra sightseeing, memory photo CDs, included bonus feature meals, pre and/or post cruise stays in cities like New York, theatre performances, lobster boat excursions, etc.
Your personal escort takes care of all the travel details for you, allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy the pleasures you so richly deserve.
