"Cruise Update" for May 19, 2015 - NOW MAKING 2016 RESERVATIONS

Dear Cruising Friends,

    Thank you for being a friend of FREEDOM CRUISES.  Ellen and I just returned from a wonderful winter of cruising adventures and we have now planned our 2016 cruises.  We hope you will join us for one of them.  Please reply with any questions you may have, or to just say "Hi".  It is always fun to hear from one of our prior cruisers.

    For the first time, we have chosen to repeat one of our favorite river cruise itineraries for our 19th Annual FREEDOM CRUISE.  On October 23, 2016 we'll embark Uniworld's SS Antoinette in Basel Switzerland for a 7 day "Castles along the Rhine" cruise to Amsterdam.  This is the reverse direction of our 2013 itinerary on the Antoinette, but will bring us to the same wonderful towns and Castles - including Colmar, Strasbourg, Germersheim,
Rüdesheim, Boppard, Koblentz & Cologne.  You can find the details here:


    Our group fares include $200 discount from the public fares displayed at the Uniworld web site as well as a $100 per person shipboard credit.  If you book prior to May 31, 2015, a $600 per person "pay in full" discount is also available.  Of course, all prior Uniworld guests get an additional "River Heritage Club" savings of $150 per person savings.  Our group fares bring this "Luxury Class" river cruise to you for less than you'll pay for the bargain brands.  (Uniworld is now a luxury line with full open bar, transfers, and all gratuities included.)

    Our many transatlantic cruises have been so enjoyable that we will be taking another one to return home after our Uniworld cruise.  Holland America's Oosterdam will be sailing from Rome to Tampa on November 3.  Join us if you wish to enjoy a 15 day cruise at very low fares, starting at $1,299!  Spend a few days exploring Rome with us before embarking, if that appeals to you.

    If you just can't wait until October to start your 2016 cruising, consider joining our group sailing on Oceania Marina on January 7, 2016.  This is an 18 day sailing from Chile to Tahiti with stops at Robinson Crusoe Island, Easter Island,
and many French Polynesia islands (including Bora Bora and Tahiti).  This itinerary has 10 sea days and Oceania will provide duplicate bridge for those interested.  What a great way to start the winter!

    If February is your preferred month to cruise, join us on Celebrity Summit, sailing round-trip from San Juan on February 13 and 20.  We will be doing both weeks, seeing different parts of the Southern Caribbean each week.  There is no better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than on a cruise ship.

    Now is the time to get the stateroom you want for the cruise that is just right for you.  I need to hear from you to get your reservation secured, so hit "reply" and let me know which voyage(s) you'd like to consider.  I'll share all the details and answer your questions, then create a reservation for your review.  Lets get started!  Check the basics at:
