Note: Many cruise lines have stopped cruising the full transit of the Panama Canal. The Canal has raised the transit fee from $250 per person upwards to $350 pp. Many are only having a couple transits. If Panama full transit is on your bucket list, call Jeanette at 602-909-2000 to get set up. Prices are going up and limited availability.

River Cruises: Lots of deals for 2017 with reduced air or FREE air. For Solo Travelers, there are some great deals with waived fees on Uniworld and Emerald Waterways. Again, call Jeanette for details 602-909-2000.
