Join us for a very informative evening with Chris Mound, Business Manager for Viking Cruises. We will meet in the Saguaro Room at Cottonwood Country Club. Come early as we will have a large group. The presentation will focus on Viking’s new ocean going cruises of 930 passengers, all balcony ships. Viking for the first time knocked Crystal Cruises out of top place for service. Crystal held this position for 20 years. Join us for a glass of wine, interesting discussion, onboard credits on your next booking and door prizes.
