Welcome back to Philip James Travel!
In the last 2 newsletters I teased you with some exciting news about coming and sailing with me, and today is the day that I reveal when, where and how. But first, let’s address the elephant in the room. May 5th is – as you well know -- National Travel Advisor’s Day. Tragically this will be another year without being able to celebrate momentously with a big parade and a work holiday. But suffice it to enjoy your Travel Advisor Day tree and all the presents waiting to be opened after the traditional feast.
All kidding aside, send your favorite travel advisor a virtual hug today, or call him with a trip request, or even better, say YES and join Susan and me as we set sail aboard an AmaWaterways river cruise in September… in Europe! Come Sail with Me.
“Come Sail with Me” is meant to inspire travel-starved folks to seize the opportunity to get out there again and have the assurance and security of traveling with me. I also invite you to consider friends and family whom you might like to travel with as well! The more the merrier!
What: “Treasures of the Main and Rhine” aboard AmaWaterways’ AmaPrima
When: September 7-14, 2021
Where: Nuremberg to Amsterdam
Why: To return to the habit of traveling to see, taste and experience different landscapes, cuisines, and cultures, and the opportunity to travel with Susan and me.
How: Give me a call to discuss your interest, allow me to share with you the details, and answer your questions, and then start the booking process.
I have chosen this cruise for many reasons, but here are just two: 1) the dates work well as they allow a few more months for international travel to regain some sense of normalcy; and 2) who wouldn’t want to escape southeast Louisiana in the doggiest days of summer for the cooler climes of Germany and The Netherlands!
The 7-night itinerary includes overnight visits to Bamberg, Wurzburg, Wertheim, Rudesheim, and Cologne before concluding with a night and full day in Amsterdam. Each day brings choices of immersive tours in every destination, gentle-to-active bike tours and hikes, and special interest tours with knowledgeable guides and in small groups.
For your best comfort and enjoyment of the cruise experience, I specifically recommend staterooms with double balconies (one is a French Balcony and the other is an Outside Balcony). Pricing currently ranges from $5394 to $5994 per person, based on double occupancy, not including airfare. To see a list of all the features of the sailing, please call or email me, and I’ll be happy to share everything with you.
For an in-depth discussion about Sailing with Me and AmaWaterways, I’ll be co-hosting a Webinar with my AmaWaterways rep on Wednesday, May 19th at 6 pm. We will speak in general terms about AmaWaterways, and particularly, our “Treasures of the Main and Rhine” journey in September. To register for the webinar, click on this LINK. Be sure to mark your calendars for this event and share the link with your friends to join us.
Susan and I are so excited about this opportunity to travel and have fun with you!
Again, call me with any questions.
