We will be cruising on the Norwegian Dawn for the third consecutive year. We New Englanders seem to enjoy Norwegian’s freestyle format and the fact that we don’t have to leave New England to board the ship.This trip allows Kiwanians to spend unstructured time with fellow Kiwanians, family and friends of Kiwanians.With the freestyle format you can plan your own schedule, or not. You can find some place to eat nearly 24/7, or not. There are numerous scheduled activities for you to choose from daily, or not.2013’s prices are very good; the lowest in about three years. I already have a block of cabins reserved:· Inside ($829.68/pp);· Ocean view ($929.68/pp) and;· Balconies ($1,279.68/pp);· All prices include all government and port taxes;· Insurance is not included because it is discretionary: $89.00/pp to $109.00/pp, according to your cabin classification.Even if you are only in the thinking stage of planning for this cruise to Bermuda you should seriously consider making a deposit of $250.00 per person. This will hold your cabin at our group rate; even if there is a price increase; even when they take away our group rate; even when they take away any of my remaining reserved cabins, as they need them.For more information or to sign up please contact me, Bob Tandy @ 978.372.9890 or e-mail me @ kiwanisb2t@... or dtandy@....
