Dear clients and friends: 

It is hard to believe that July is almost over and August is knocking on the door!  What may be even more surprising is that NOW is the perfect time to start planning your holiday vacation... that's right, Christmas, New Year's, Hanukkah, and winter break from school are "just around the corner" as far as travel planning is concerned.  
This month, Royal Caribbean announced their Deck the Holidays program:  every sailing in December will have an array of festive programming.  There will be snow days on deck, tree-lighting and special decor, and of course Santa and his elves will be on board to meet the guests and take photos.   Check out our website for more details!  
S everal of our staff--Anita, Amy & Charlie--are getting into the holiday spirit!
For some other holiday ideas, we also have special group pricing on Norwegian Jewel to Mexico over New Years, and Celebrity has just announced that they will be sailing the Caribbean all year round.  
Ship Tours!  We got great interest in the slideshow we posted for the Explorer of the Seas, we hope you found it helpful.  We had the opportunity to tour the Celebrity Solstice a couple of weeks ago, and have created a ship tour slideshow to give you an idea of just how fabulous it is, hopefully you will enjoy this one too!  Both files are on our website.  
Thank you for your continued patronage; we love what we do, and are so pleased when we can help plan your perfect vacation.  We would love to hear from you, so please reach out!  You can reply to this email, or we are happy to take your call;  our office phone is 425-827-5656, or toll free at 1-800-275-9876.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
