Savvy Travelers at Panama Canal and Costa Rica

Savvy Travelers at Panama Canal and Costa Rica

Savvy Travelers have traveled at home and abroad this summer. Many of the river cruise companies are offering some fabulous discounts for late fall and winter sailings in Europe as well as discounted air for Europe in 2016, so get in touch with Jeanette at 602-909-2000 for details. Uniworld and AMA Waterways have several river cruises for singles with no extra supplement. Also, Viking is coming to the Mississippi – announcements coming near year end. Past passengers get discounts as well.

The club is supporting Free Spirit Vacations by promoting their wonderful fall and winter getaways. These little two, three and four-day getaways (mostly from Sun Lakes) offer you singles the opportunity to travel with your locals and be part of a group. If you need a copy of the complete list of the local trips call Donna at 480-861-3652 or Jeanette at 602-909-2000 and request a copy and we will mail it to you. When you book with the club, Free Spirit will pay the club a few dollars which helps support the club refreshments and other miscellaneous expenses. Thus, no meeting dues and everyone is welcome to stop by. Think about the Balloon Festival in October, the Rose Bowl in December and much more.

Meetings will resume October 8 at 6:30 p.m. in the Phoenix Room at Cottonwood Country Club. Come say hello and let us know what you have been up to this summer. November is a Cruise Night with Celebrity.

The travel Club has a number of group trips scheduled so call to get more details; you can reach Jeanette at 602-909-2000 or Donna at 480-861-3652.
