Savvy Travelers in Lisbon, Portugal

Jeanette Rajamaki

Join us for Savvy Travelers Club Holiday meeting in the Saguaro Room at 6:30 p.m. at Cottonwood Country Club on Wednesday, Dec 8. Holland America will be hosting a presentation to update on the new destinations for 2022 and 2023. Megan Ziegler will update on current protocols on their ships.

We will have refreshments, a couple of door prizes, and a few travel books and vendor brochures. We will have some updates on local one- and two-day getaways and how that is being handled. No dues—just come say hi. We will maintain social distancing, and I will have masks for those who wish them.

Where are people traveling and what was it like? Yes, we will address some of those questions.
