A Coos Bay Christmas

5 Days, December 23rd - 27th Sold Out / Waitlist

First offered as a holiday excursion in 2013, it has been often requested by our Christmas crowd ever since, so we are pleased to bring A Coos Bay Christmas back for a return engagement.

This is an all-coach trip. Travel north to Ashland/Medford the first day. There’s a lunch break in Redding and tonight you’ll partake in the annual Christmas Feast at the Winchester Inn. The six-course meal comes with carolers and costumed staff.

The next morning (Christmas Eve), before departing for the coast, make an early morning visit to Harry & David’s. As is our Christmas shopping tradition, we have negotiated a little gift card to get you started on your expedition. Travel to the coast, stopping in Bandon at Washed Ashore, a most unique place that makes art out of ocean trash. At Cranberry Sweets, your sponsored-shopping activities continue. Finish the day at The Mill Casino/Hotel in Coos Bay. Dinner tonight is a Crab Fest (other options available), as the Dungeness season will have just started.

Christmas Day brings our legendary White Elephant Gift Exchange, an ecological tour of the area and a visit to Shore Acres State Park. Not only is there an interesting story, there is a wonderful display of Christmas lights. A holiday feast is planned.

The trip home takes you down the Oregon Coast, with shopping stops at Misty Meadows Jams and the House of Myrtlewood. Spend the night in Eureka and head home through the redwoods.

Key West, Miami and The Everglades 2018

7 Days, January 20th - 26th

Key West has become one of our most popular destinations with our annual tour selling out every year, months ahead of departure. Key West is a pedestrian-friendly destination, and because of that we walk to many attractions. During your extended stay in Key West, your accommodations are in the very best location in town, at the historic La Concha Crowne Plaza. The hotel is a landmarked building and it’s right in the middle of famous Duval Street, allowing you to make the most of your free time in town, because you can walk to just about everything. Restaurants and shops are close and best of all, your breakfast is included every morning! We do not recommend this tour for travelers with serious mobility issues.

Cruising the (NEW) Panama Canal

17 Days, February 3rd - 19th

Sail from Florida to California on one of Holland America’s best-known ships, the m/v Westerdam. Spend one night in Fort Lauderdale before boarding the ship. Sailing from east to west provides you the advantage of getting the long, cross-country flight out of the way first, leaving just a short hop home from San Diego at the end of the cruise.

The 15-night cruise stops at Holland America’s private island, Half Moon Cay, and Cartagena, Columbia before its full transit of the Panama Canal, called by some the Eighth Wonder of the World. Workers in Panama recently completed a nearly 10-year expansion project that doubled the canal’s maritime traffic. Additional port calls include Puerto Caldera/Puntarenas (Costa Rica), where you can experience a tropical rainforest, Corinto (Nicaragua), Puerto Quetzal (Guatamala), and Acapulco and Cabo San Lucas (Mexico).

We continue to partner with Holland America Line for this adventure because of its commitment to service and because we know and believe in the quality of its ships, programs and shore excursions. The m/v Westerdam is a midsize ship which carries passengers with style and grace – it’s large enough to offer a host of exciting amenities but more personal and intimate than the “floating cities” of other cruise lines.

It’s All About The Water

6 Days, February 4th - 9th Sold Out / Waitlist

A title like this one sorta narrows down the options for where you might be going. For the more inquisitive in the audience, the water will not be frozen, so eliminate that thought right away. It’s All About the Water could mean a lot of things. You could be on the water, or looking at the water, or playing in the water… it’s a mystery! Look, don’t get all crabby on us. As my good friend Sandy used to say, “Life is a beach.” I know some of this sounds a bit fishy, but really, if you think about it, it could be fun. I mean, when have you ever had not one but TWO oceans, right outside your door (major clue alert). Only two hotels are involved, a 3 night and a 2-night stay, so you have time to enjoy your surroundings. Don’t worry, we won’t have to invent cool things to do, because we have found a ton of neat stuff.

Passage to South America

17 Days, March 2nd - 18th

Discover lands rich in history, folklore and wild beauty! South America has always held a special allure for explorers.

We are happy to arrange shore excursions for all ports of call. For a full listing of shore excursions available please visit www.hollandamerica.com.

Designed to carry less than 1,500 guests while providing more space for maximum comfort, the ms Zaandam is a prize in the mid-size ship category. On the musically themed Zaandam, you’ll find a Baroque-style Dutch pipe organ in her soaring three-story atrium, inspired by the traditional barrel organs still found on the streets of The Netherlands. While on-board, choose from an array of onboard activities that allow you to pursue new interests or relax and rejuvenate. Enjoy onboard cooking shows and hands-on workshops in partnership with America’s Test Kitchen. The Greenhouse Spa & Salon offers spa treatments, a thermal pool and lounge and salon services.
