I'm hoping to go on either a river or ocean cruise this summer. I'm looking at a couple of cruises that go to Northern Europe, either Russia or Scandanavian countries. I'm in my early 50's, have done a lot traveling, am easy going, and enjoy being active. Anyone interested in sharing the journey with me?
Lyn: I just wanted to write to you but I'm not sure for myself. I was listening to KRLA (don't know if you like talk radio) and they announced a Seven Seas Radisson cruise in I think August with my favorite people Michael Medved and Dennis Prager and such. The radio sponsors different cruises where of course they talk and get to go for free. It said on the radio that it was for $1499, and there's a Cordon Blue Restaurant and open seating and a small ship of 800, and they're going to St. Petersburg and Stockholm and all. I almost crashed the car cause I know right now airfare alone is that much. The dollar is really bad -- its not a good time to go to Europe. So I pulled off and ran into what I thought was Carlson Travel (the one handling it), but it was Select Travel and anyway, they said it's about $4000. That's what I figured. And that's WITH a roomate, which of course is what I'd need. Still don't know what's true, but if you could afford it and/or find a roomate, that would be the coolest cruise ever. (If you're like a liberal who hates these people, no offense meant!!) Sandy
Hi Sandy, It sounds like a great cruise. I happen to be a big fan of Dennis Praeger. I've heard him speak at various conferences. And the ports seem really good. The only problem is that it's a small boat and it cruises on the Baltic Sea, which could be somewhat choppy. If I go on an ocean cruise, I'd have to go on one of the very large ships. But thanks for telling me about it and if you're considering another cruise, let me know. My time frame is somewhat flexible, so it doesn't necessarily have to be in the summer.
May might be a little early for me to travel. I don't think I'll have enough vacation days accrued by then. But if you would like to go in the summer or later, maybe we can talk about it. My vacation schedule is not certain now, but I have some flexibility. If May is the only time you can go, I understand and hope you have a great time.
