Cruisin' with the Walkers

Cruisin’ with the Walkers is back and better than ever. More upscale, more exotic and most importantly, more value. Tonette and I are so excited to announce Buenos Aires to Rio de Janeiro as our 2021 cruise and we invite you to join us on this fantastic adventure from January 7-20, 2021.

We hand selected this itinerary for its rich cultural experiences, incredible cityscapes and stunning natural beauty. Imagine standing on the pedestal of Rio’s iconic statue of Christ the Redeemer, atop Mount Corcovado with breathtaking views in every direction. It’s one of the New7Wonders of the World and we’re going to experience it along with many other highlights.

We’ve selected Oceania Cruises to be our floating luxury resort. Known for incredible service and the best food at sea, our ship, the Marina, houses just 1,250 passengers and a staggering 800-person crew to pamper its guests. And almost everything is included from WiFi and specialty dining to espresso drinks and bottled water. And you’ll have the choice of a free beverage package, $600 shipboard credit or 6 shore excursions to help complete your inclusive experience.

But the value doesn’t stop there. We’re throwing in the kitchen sink in Cruisin’ with the Walkers exclusives. How about a $200 shipboard credit? Free shipboard gratuities? Free transfers to and from Chicago O’Hare? Sure, why not! Plus we have a bunch of great events planned aboard the ship including a welcome session, Q&A with Tonette and me and the previously mentioned tango lessons.

Based on the response we received for our Hawaii vacation, and the incredible value that this vacation represents, we expect that it will fill fast. Our sons Matt and Alex will be with us and we hope you can join us as well. Call the folks at Cruise & Tour to lock in your spot today!

See you in South America!

Testimonials

Aloha! We just returned from the Cruisin' with the Walkers Hawaiian vacation with Dennis and Peggy. What a fabulous vacation! We appreciated that every little detail was thought about and taken care of during our entire 10 days. The airport transfers, the hotel transfers, the port terminal transfers....everything that causes tension on a vacation were all handled. All we had to do was show up! We are looking forward to our next Cruise and Tour vacation next year at this time! Mahalo!

My wife and I went on our first cruise with Cruise & Tour to the Mediterranean. It was an incredible vacation. I can't say enough good things about this company. We will definitely book more vacations in the future. Thanks to all of the people on the Cruise & Tour staff that took very good care of us.
