Announcing: Cruise Trek 2014:
“The British Isles Intrigue”
July 14 ~ 24, 2014!!
Update – June 10, 2013:
(Please note: To keep abreast of our
ever-evolving events, some past Updates are included herein or linked
Having fun with a Ferengi aboard the Windsong
in Tahiti, 1997.
Hey there, Cruise Trek Family!
I hope this Update finds you all very well!
Before I proceed to our two future Cruise Trek Adventure
announcements, I first wanted to share a few “housekeeping”
things with you. The first one is easy – we no longer have a
dedicated fax line. In these more tech-advanced days, it seems that most
folks simply don’t even use them anymore. For us anyway, email
and attachments are certainly the way to go. However, there sure seems
to be a lot more scamming or phishing of email addresses and other things
going on in this highly electronic age. . . Guess that is just life. So, please
The second thing is that while most of you know already, for many
weeks of the year we are out of town/country executing events for other
companies and/or we are just outside having fun, living life, and/or
swinging a hammer or a weed-whacker! ;-)) In any case, we sincerely
appreciate your patience with us in getting back to you. With email
& cell phones (I just picked up my very first smart phone!), it is
pretty easy to stay in touch anywhere we are.
So, as another FYI and if you have a chance, check out Insight
Cruises. This fall, we get to do two events for this company: Scientific
American/Mac Mania on the Rhone River and then a Shakespeare-themed
cruise event round trip from Athens to many ports in Turkey. . . Then
not to mention the Seine with our CT family! If anyone ever wants to join
us on one of these. . . please contact us first!
Also, just to let you know, we will be at the Creation Convention in Las
Vegas this August. . . The better part of this outing is being able to stay with
Ron & Barb Moore in Vegas. . . luv them!! Plus, Ron will be at our
table in the dealer’s room, offering to autograph his new book about
his career as an Emmy Award winning Visual Effects guy. Did he not show
us some really cool video on the Hawaii cruise this last fall!? ;-)) Also, I think
more of our family of actors will stop by the table to say “Hi”
as well. . . like the other “boys” from the Blues Band.
Anyway, I hear they may do a song or two just for us?! Of course, I am sure
we will be greeting many other CT family members. Looking forward to it!
Now to our future destinations for 2013 & 2014: Most of you
know about the Seine River Cruise & CERN trip this October 23/25
- November 3, 2013.

And in this Update, we are also announcing our Cruise Trek Adventure
for July 14 - 24, 2014 to the British Isles!! This has been a popular
destination request, and well, the timeframe will hopefully allow those with
school schedule sensitivities to attend as well!! We’ll have exciting
pre/post cruise tours & hotels available. . . More to follow in future
updates. Let’s explore London and/or the vicinity together!
Both of these future events are totally new & original adventure
destinations for Cruise Trek. . . The Seine River cruise sails round trip
from Paris, France, with a very Scientific-based side tour to Geneva/CERN
(the world’s largest
physics laboratory). And now for 2014, we sail the British Isles round
trip from Harwich, England!! The 2014 event includes stops in Ireland,
Wales, Scotland, England, and Le Havre, France, for another chance to
see magnificent Paris!
You can find out more about our fabulous itinerary for CT 2014 on
our “British Isles Intrigue”
You can find out more information about booking CT 2014 to the
British Isles on the booking information
To keep this portion of the Update a little shorter, please see additional
itinerary information for CT 2013 on the
CT 2013 booking information sheet.
More importantly & the good news now is that we have some cabins
available once again! So, please give us a shout-out ASAP to see if we
can get you aboard this wonderful & historic adventure! Or simply
send us a booking form, and we’ll get back to you regarding your
cabin booking request. PS – Inventory does seemingly change
quite often. Most of us on board for 2013 are participating in the CERN
Science & Education addition.
Of course, the “icing on the cake” for our events is
the guests who are interested in coming along. . . Dominic Keating &
Lolita Fatjo are still on board for 2013. . . But, as you know with busy
lives. things can change. Though again for Cruise Trek 2013 &
2014, we have loads of actor interest. . . Hawaii was too much fun, and
I think the word has spread!! ;-))
For wherever your life & journeys take you. . . safe travels

Update – Mar. 16, 2013:
Just thought I give you all a shout out. . . especially since we just
returned from a month long Insight Cruises event in South America. Wow
– First time I have ever been there. . . and indeed I would go back
in a heartbeat! ;-)) It was just beautiful and a huge culturally enlightening
experience! And we had on board this cruise a top physicist who works at
CERN. . . hoping he help us with our tour?! We’ll see. . .

Anyway, so we are behind in paperwork. . . but, we’ll get
caught up. . . appreciate the patience. . .
So for this fall, the Seine River cruise is shaping up nicely! And well,
we just wanted to let you know that we can arrange airfares through the
cruise line for you guys if you so choose. . . The fares so far have proved
to be pretty good. So, if you desire this airfare assistance. . . please send
Aaron an email at
with your travel dates in mind and he’ll get back to you.
Besides the fare, CT will add a $50 airfare fee. Sorry about this
– but this day & age, fees for airfare are not atypical. Well,
plus it is a ton of effort. . . though we will leave it up to you to obtain your
seats, apply FF numbers and/or to order any special meals if available. . .
The good thing is that depending upon your schedule requested and other
mitigating factors transfers are sometimes if not mostly included as well.
There is a little back and forth in this process for airfare so again we
appreciate the patience. And the deposit for the airfare is $350. . . which
is non-refundable after confirmation.
Balance is due upon full payment date. In any case, please let us
know if we can help on airfare. . .
The other cool thing is that our dear friend Lolita Fatjo with her lovely
man, Jim, are sailing too! Plus, it looks like Dominic will join us again as
well. AND it appears that we’ll have our very favorite AMA
Waterways Cruise Manager, Peter Whitehead back with us. . . Of course,
both of them are subject to change. . . but, we do have great options if it
does change. . . like another actress who actually lives in France and
another CM that lives in Europe. . . so, all will be as serendipitous as
Oh yeah. . . as most of you know for the Seine River cruise, space
has been very very tight for quite some time. . . but, we may have a Trek
Share or cabin pop open. . . So if someone else wants to go. . . please
get to us with a booking form ASAP. . . Upon receipt of a BIS, we
won’t book you until we know exactly what category is available
and then we will confer with you the details for you to decide yea or nay.
Easy. . .
Oh yes, even more news is that we are working on CT 2014. . . We
have the destination, the date. . . and we just signed contracts with a
cruise line. . . So, info is coming soon! Shhhhh! ;-))) Not South America
though this time. . . but, someplace with popular demand! ;-))
Be well & Travel Safe. . .
Looking forward to seeing you all once again. . .
