Good news tonight! Final arrangements have been made with Holland America for our group - and we have pricing [at last!]. I am not the sort of travel consultant who will offer you a "low ball" price to lure you in. I like to present the price as it is - with all taxes and fees - so what you see is what you pay!
We will depart from Ft. Lauderdale on the 10th of April 2016, aboard the Holland America ms Nieuw Amsterdam, for 15 nights cruising, through the Panama Canal to San... Diego, California. For those who wish to take the optional package and enjoy a further 5 nights aboard, arriving in Vancouver, I can price this separately for you. All prices are per person - based on double occupancy in the cabin.
Inside cabin - Category L - $2626.26 per person CAD
Oceanview cabin - Category F - $3005.26 per person CAD
Oceanview cabin - Category E - $3040.26 per person CAD
Verandah cabin - Category VD - $3660.76 per person CAD
Verandah cabin - Category VA - $3798.76 per person CAD
Suites start at $4811 per person
I have checked the prices Holland America is currently offering as "sale" pricing - and our group prices are below market fare. Deposits are required - $690 CAD per person. This is a REFUNDABLE deposit - up to the time of final payment.
Feel free to contact me for more information - and any questions you have. firstname.lastname@example.org
And...for those who are wondering, I was also an Air Force Brat - and a serving member of the RCAF - stationed at 3 Wing from 1966 to just prior to closing in 1969. I'm looking forward to meeting many of you on board the Nieuw Amsterdam!
