Fall Foliage Cruise
NEW ENGLAND – CANADA
This is the 15th year we are offering a Fall Foliage Cruise, that features the brilliant colors of Fall. This one week cruise is on one of the largest ships, the Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines “SERENADE OF THE SEAS.” Experience a northeastern autumn when the trees are bright red and the warmth of the summer is still in the air. You will enjoy visiting the exciting ports of BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS PLUS PORTLAND AND BAR HARBOR, MAINE; INCLUDING THE EXCITING PORTS OF SAINT JOHN, NEW BRUNSWICK AND HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA IN CANADA PLUS SPENDING TWO FULL DAYS AT SEA. There will be plenty of fun things to do on this floating resort including spectacular views along the coastline of New England and Canada’s Maritime Provinces. Be sure to bring your camera to capture nature’s bright colored flowers and trees. In the evenings, enjoy Broadway musical performances in the showroom. Make your own airline reservations to and from Boston, Massachusetts or call our office for the cruise line airfare including round-trip transportation to the ship. Just the food and entertainment alone are worth the price of this one week Fall Foliage Cruise that takes place only once a year. Each evening separate dining room tables will be reserved for our group of Jehovah’s Witnesses so you can get acquainted with Friends from around the country. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included daily in the three-level dining room or at one of the buffets. There are also several specialty restaurants featuring French, Italian, Japanese and a steak house for a nominal surcharge. Since there will be several other Friends sailing on this cruise, we suggest making reservations NOW as only a limited amount of cabins have been reserved for this date and our last cruise was SOLD OUT.
