Hello clients and friends!

My goodness, but it has been a busy Spring! So many clients are booking their summer trips--yes, there is still space available on those Alaska cruises, just call if you're interested--and even a few families have reached out with their holiday plans. Fun!

I've wanted to follow up on our previous newsletter regarding several of the new cruise ships entering service within the next year or so. Since there was a lot of interest in these new ships, I thought I should bring you some information about three more new ships on the horizon...and YES they are open for bookings already.
Holland's Nieuw Statendam

The Holland America debuted their first Pinnacle-class ship, the Konsingdam in 2016, and is adding a slightly larger sister ship, the Nieuw Statendam later this year.

The Nieuw Statendam offers both 21st century elegance along with 145 years of Holland America's nautical tradition. Her design features light-filled spaces and innovative dining and entertainment venues, along with the comfort and service you have come to expect from Holland.

The Nieuw Statendam will be sailing the Caribbean from January thru May of 2019 on a variety of itineraries, and we have selected a fabulous, 17-day Caribbean Seafarer itinerary to promote for her for January 2019!
Sky Princess

Princess Cruises will debut another Royal-class ship in October 2019, the Sky Princess . She joins Royal Princess and Regal Princess, as well as Majestic Princess, which just debuted last year and is the first international luxury cruise liner tailor made for the Chinese market.

The Royal class ships each feature a large Atrium with elegant design, lined with a wide a range of restaurants, lounges, shops and services, plus events and activities throughout the day and evening.

She will be making her first Transatlantic crossing in November 2019, and we think that you should be on board! Check out this blissful 21-day Mediterranean itinerary, from Rome to Ft. Lauderdale .
Celebrity Flora

We mentioned it in our last email and are excited to tell you more now about Celebrity Flora, an all-suite ship designed specifically for the Galapagos .

The Flora was designed to be environmentally friendly: she is energy-efficient, and uses and anchorless technology to maintain position without harming the sea floor. All the suites face outward for views of the islands, and guests are treated to seminars led by ecological experts, and to personal suite attendants. She's getting a lot of great press, including this article on honeymoon ideas .

Celebrity Flora will be debuting in May 2019, and bookings are available out into 2020. Find out more about Galapagos cruises with Celebrity on our website!
