Europe, I'm Calling You

Europe, “I’m calling you!”
Remember this song?
Give the video link a hit, and let the haunting melody (and Academy-award nominated song) from “Bagdad Cafe” get you dreaming.
Can you hear Europe calling you!
Isn’t it time for a visit! 
If you’re not sure, give the finale of “Downton Abbey” a watch tonight – you’ll be inspired…. by the show, the history, and the Viking River cruise ads as well!
Europe is hot right now. There are lots of terrific offers for you to consider for your upcoming travel plans – whether for 2016 or 2017. (And yes, I have Viking River cruise offers too!)
SCENIC & Emerald Waterways 
I’ve had several events with Scenic river cruises this week (and another with Emerald this afternoon.)  Scenic has some terrific offers for 2017 especially with their pre-release shows they were conducting across the country last week. All their 14+ day river cruises have free air to Europe (including taxes!), and shorter ones have an air credit/ discount offered to passengers. See
For solo travelers, the news is especially good. There are at least 4 of their 14+ day river cruises that also offer no solo supplement on select dates WITH the free air. That’s the first time I’ve seen that combined (generally, solo travelers have to select one or the other.)  Contact me if you’re interested.
There is still some space for Scenic’s 2016 sailings (which haven’t even started yet), but, they are already 85% sold. But if you really want to go in 2016, contact me, and I’ll check the remaining offers for availability and pricing.
The great offers with free air and solo supplements being waived and with the most availability, of course, are those being offered now for 2017. The combo of offers is inventory controlled – which means, as soon as they sell a few, Scenic can withdraw the offer at any time. (Which is why there are fewer offers for 2016, as there is little space remaining.) So, if you’re interested, contact me this week.  I may also be able to extend a show special from Ottawa to get you some additional savings. (A $250 off per cabin, based on double.)
Let me know if you’re interested in learning more about Scenic River or Emerald Waterways river cruises (See ).
I’m also setting up a group from Ottawa next April (so 2017) with Scenic. Deposit is $500/person non-refundable. If you act now, you can get free air (AND solos can get the supplement waived, subject to inventory control – so don’t wait to get this offer for yourself!)  See details here for this BUDAPEST -AMSTERDAM / 10Apr -24Apr (15days)
