Member Trips & Cruises
We had a wonderful time with 50 members on a Danube River Cruise last fall, and hope you will join us on our 2017 "Viking Homelands" Cruise from Copenhagen to Amsterdam. This 12-day voyage on Oceania will cross the Baltic Sea to Helsinki, and wind through to St. Petersburg, and come back via Tallinn/Estonia, Stockholm & Visby/Sweden, Berlin, and Oslo/Norway before returning to Amsterdam.
Can’t quite make it to northern Europe this year? Join our 7-day cruise August 9-16, 2018 aboard Oceania's intimate 684-guest Regatta to ALASKA – The Last Frontier! The cruise sails through the pristine Inside Passage, breathtaking Tracy Arm Fjord and stops in Ketchikan, Sitka and Prince Rupert where unspoiled wilderness and untamed wildlife abound. Washington’s foremost wine expert Paul Gregutt will join our exclusive 2-night optional pre-cruise Seattle land package. No one knows Washington’s viticulture scene better than Paul. You’ll enjoy tours and tastings at some of the leading boutique and family-owned urban wineries with Paul as your guide. Program details are being finalized and complete details will be announced soon.
We are also announding an exciting 2018 journey through Ireland, organized by the non-profit O'Brien Clan and being led by former CNN Anchor, Miles O'Brien. Join Barb & Bart on this 9-day adventure traversing the Brian Boru Trail from Killaloe in western Ireland, where Brian was born and became King of the Munsters, to Cashel, where he was crowned High King, to Clontarf, where he was killed, to Armagh in Northern Ireland, where he was buried. The beauty of the country is breathtaking, the history is invigorating, and the pub experiences are outstanding!
These member trips are the most fun vacations we have had. The excitement of being in a foreign country, while becoming friends with our members, is truly a wonderful experience! Look for brochures in your next wine club shipments.
Be sure to book early, as spaces are limited, and you will want to take advantage of early booking discounts.
