Join us for a first-time presentation by Virgin Voyages. This is Richard Branson’s Cruise Line that was scheduled to launch in the Spring of 2020. Due to COVID, this did not happen. We are hoping some time here in 2021 the Scarlet Lady will start her voyages in the Caribbean. In the meantime, Richard has built two more new ships: the Valiant Lady, which will homeport in Barcelona, and Resilient Lady, which will sail exclusively in the Greek Isles. These ships are unique and do not follow the mainstream feel in any way. It should be an interesting presentation.

Looking forward to more travel in 2021. The Caribbean and Mexico are already open at the all-inclusive resorts. Lots of folks are getting out this spring to the beaches.

Current travel—Folks are booking The Copper Canyon eight-day land tour which is now going monthly, with small groups. We have a group scheduled for March 12, 2022. Currently, there are 12 people booked from Sun Lakes. If you are interested, contact Jeanette. Pricing is $1,895 per person based on double occupancy.

The other group cruise we have planned is for Oct. 4, 2021, on Oceania Cruises, Lisbon to Venice. This is the artist series, with gratuities and specialty dining included, along with lectures and mosaic class with Stan Price and Tami Bogdanoff. Lots of special events and private tours. We have 20 people currently booked on the Marina for this Group Cruise. Call Jeanette for more details.
