Think about joining us in the fall on October 11 at 6:30 p.m. at one of our Savvy Travelers meetings. We bring like-minded travelers together to share experiences, to join one of our organized trips or cruises which might be going anywhere in the world or just to meet other travelers. Each month, there are travel programs, travel brochures, interesting people and refreshments. No dues! We invite you to join us at the Cottonwood Country Club on the second Thursday of each month from 6:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. in the Saguaro Room. Just look for the Savvy Traveler suitcase on the sidewalk outside the room. Contact Vic Hermann at 480-883-3897 or Jeanette Rajamaki 602-909-2000 — ask to be added to the meeting reminder email.
Our last meeting in May was a Cruise Night with Royal Caribbean. The District Manager for Arizona updated us on new itineraries – the new Symphony of the Seas coming to the USA in November 2018 – and offered on board credit for all booking done over the summer for future cruises. Savvy Travelers has some group space left on February 23 sailing in the Caribbean. Call Jeanette for pricing and details as this new ship is 75% sold out already. The only balcony rooms left are in the Savvy Travelers group.
No meeting until October, when Uniworld River Cruises will kick off the fall season on October 11, 2018.
