Paul W. & Kim's Dream Vacation - Canada & New England

Dear Listeners & Friends,

Did you know that Kim and I honeymooned on Seabourn? To say the least, we were blown away! And we’ve always wanted to explore Canada & New England. Imagine walking the streets of old-world Montreal and Quebec City. Cruising in and out of the scenic Maritimes to Charlottetown and Halifax. Exploring the Freedom Trail in Boston. Touring a historic mansion in Newport. Our 8th Dream Vacation has it all and Kim and I are beyond excited!

Consistently ranked at the very top of every luxury cruise list (including our own), Seabourn will fulfill and exceed your travel dreams. Once you board, you will not want to leave! Which is why we have selected an almost two-week itinerary including three full days at sea where you’ll be pampered to your heart’s content. And here is the best part. With only 229 guests aboard, the Seabourn Quest will feel like your very own “private club” where literally everything is included onboard. World-class dining with no reservations. Complimentary premium wines and spirits. Complimentary unlimited Wi-Fi. All your gratuities and much more!

Of course, all the little details (and the big details too) are handled by our long-time partners in travel, Cruise & Tour. Flights, two nights in Montreal, two tours, ship accommodations and events, transfers, they’re taking care of everything! Which frees us up to hang out with YOU… which we absolutely love doing!

This is the perfect itinerary on the perfect ship. I invite you to check out all the details below and make your reservation today. We have about a quarter of the ship reserved for WJR Travel Club members and when the suites are gone, they’re gone! Kim and I sincerely hope you will join us!

Regards,
Paul W. Smith
