our luggage as a group from the Park Plaza Hotel to the pier.
The charge will be $10.00 each person.
Anyone who wants to ride the shuttle should get in touch
with Pat Sanders as soon as is convenient.
You can then come by the WW table at the IAL to pay.
We will plan to have the bus there at 11:00 AM
but will confirm the actual time later.
Those who notify us that they want reservations are indicated
on the "Listing of Cruisers" page with a "#".

                                         WHAT'S INCLUDED?

Almost everything is taken care of on a cruise ship with the original payment.
Your stateroom accommodations, fantastic meals in the dining rooms or
cafés, snacks throughout the day, and even 24-hour room service is included.
Entertainment and most other activities are  part of your fare. Every day a
schedule is delivered to your stateroom that outlines all the cruise activities
that may interest you. It helps you plan your time and makes sure you don't
miss out on anything. On the other hand, you may want to spend every day
in a deck chair reading a book from the onboard library. When you arrive in
each port, there are dozens of things to do and see on shore, plus excursions,
which are an additional cost (you may read about them and order in advance).

There will be an afternoon tea or a wine tasting, an art auction, dance lessons,
Bingo, card games; the pool is open and so are saunas or hot tubs.  A marvelous
gym and exercise room is there to help you work off the gourmet foods. The
casino is open and active along with many lounges featuring different
entertainment and types of music. The stage shows are fantastic every evening.
Take your choice and if you're looking for an incredible value, look no further.
