Pent Up Travel Desires? 125% Future Cruise Credits? Now is Time for “Once in a Lifetime” Travel!

Goldring Travel has some very special deals for you!

But before I let you know about them: Three years ago today, while in Myanmar, I had one of the best soups; and I always am on the lookout for soup during my travels. I still remember sitting on a tiny stool at a tiny table on the side of a tiny street with a big bowl of deliciousness with my head on fire from the spices looking at the big smile of the woman who created it seeing how much I enjoyed her cooking.

We need to remember, and embrace, that not only does travel give us experiences, it gives experiences to those we openly engage with…and it provides critical financial support some of the most amazing people we otherwise would never know.

With the COVID-19/novel coronavirus/”The ‘Rona” pretty much consuming much of our lives, making us look at only the present and also making us fearful of the unknown, there is one thing that we must focus on:
This too shall pass!
Yes, there is an end to this ordeal coming. Whether travel can begin in one month or four, the fact is that whether it is “flattening the curve”, the downslope of the peak, the discovery of anti-virals and vaccines, acquired immunity and/or a changes in the way we address social spacing/distancing, the fact is that the present state of affairs is NOT going to be the way of the future…and travel will happen.
We know that businesses need to reopen, that our global community needs to reopen and that borders are going to reopen. And with so many cruises cancelled – in addition to the current social limitations – people are looking to or, better, craving, to get out and explore, there is a very vibrant demand for cruises in late 2020 and 2021. (I have been finding literally every day, that desired future cruises (ocean and river), expeditions and land tours are sold out or nearly so, suite categories not available and preferred dates gone.)

Even if your closer-in cruise hasn’t yet been cancelled, might you consider a backup trip? You can book something for later in the year or next year and if your planned journey happens you can either cancel it (provided you do so within the cancellation parameters) or keep it as another journey.
Goldring Travel’s Special Deals!
Seabourn Quest – December 20, 2020 (24 Days) 
Seabourn’s Holiday South Georgia Island, Antarctica & Patagonia Cruise

I will be your host during my fourth journey to Antarctica and my second to South Georgia Island. Yes, it is that special and amazing. Anyone who has traveled to Antarctica will tell you that whatever they anticipated it to be it was so much better and so different. And many of my clients have decided that once was not enough and have either already made a second journey or have one booked.

On this sailing Goldring Travel will be providing you with:

  • A Generous Discount
  • A Generous Onboard Credit over and above any Seabourn offers to the public
  • Complimentary Private Transfer from the Airport to your hotel or directly to the ship
  • Complimentary Private Cocktail Party with Seabourn Ventures Expedition Team Members
  • Complimentary Pisco Sours at Shackleton’s Bar in Punta Arenas, Chile
  • Complimentary Post-Cruise Chilean Wine & Culinary Experience, Short Tour of Santiago, Chile and Transfer to Santiago Airport or Your Hotel (Group Experience)

Note that as long as you are healthy, physical limitations are not an issue. Whether you just want to see Antarctica, step on the White Continent one time, take zodiac tours or fully embrace it with numerous landings and even kayaking, Seabourn and the Expedition Team will make it a true Once In A Lifetime Experience!

Here is a taste of what you may experience. Each day is different. In fact, what happens during each day is different. It is, in part, what makes this such an extraordinary journey and so worth taking the time to truly delve into this remote part of our world.

Seabourn’s Antarctica and Patagonia – Goldring Travel’s Third Expedition – Part III (South Georgia Island)

Seabourn’s Antarctica and Patagonia – Goldring Travel’s Third Expedition – Part V (Paradise Bay, Torgersen Island & Half Moon Island)

With my being onboard with you, I will happily provide you with as much or as little guidance as to what to expect, photography tips, and, because it is Goldring Travel, a few extra surprises!

Seabourn 2021 World Cruise Segments

Seabourn Sojourn will be sailing on its 2021 World Cruise from Miami to Barcelona with an extraordinary itinerary transiting the Panama Canal, down the coast of South America, crossing over to French Polynesia, onto Australia, Indonesia and then, for me, the most exciting part of the journey: Africa before ending in Barcelona.

While Goldring Travel has some great pricing on the Full World Cruise, we are able to offer truly exceptional special pricing on segments sailing from Sydney, Australia or later; not not only in Veranda Guarantees, but in specific suites in most categories, including Penthouses.  The pricing is so special I am not allowed to publish it!

These are the available specially priced segments:

  • Sydney to Benoa (Bali) – March 4, 2021 (21 Days)
  • Sydney to Cape Town – March 4, 2021 (51 Days)
  • Sydney to Barcelona – March 4, 2021 (81 Days)
  • Benoa (Bali) to Cape Town – March 25, 2021 (30 Days)
  • Benoa (Bali) to Victoria, Mahe, Seychelles – March 25, 2021 (13 Days)
  • Victoria, Mahe, Seychelles to Cape Town – April 7, 2021 (17 Days)
  • Cape Town to Barcelona – April 24, 2021 (30 Days)
  • Cape Town to Dakar, Senegal – April 24, 2021 (12 Days)
  • Dakar, Senegal to Barcelona – May 12, 2021 (12 Days)
You might even want to consider having Goldring Travel design an African Safari to combine with your cruise!  Having been on two African safaris and designed quite a number for my clients, it is truly another Once in a Lifetime Experience. Of course, if you feel you are not physically up to a safari or don’t want to commit that much time or money, these Seabourn cruises will most certainly give you a very impressive taste of Africa!
Veranda Guarantee & Penthouse Deals
Later 2020 and 2021

Goldring Travel also has very special pricing on a number of Seabourn cruises to Alaska, Caribbean, Arabia, Asia, South America, Australia/New Zealand and even a few in Europe including Transatlantic sailings.

Sweetening this even more, if any of the sailings are also Ensemble Travel Group sailings you will receive an additional Onboard Credit of up to $175 per person or, possibly, an Ensemble Experience shore excursion, compliments of Goldring Travel.

If you are thinking that you just cannot afford a Seabourn cruise at this time, some of these sailings are truly fantastic bargains, so it might well be worth your while to contact me!

Seabourn’s Book With Confidence Program

Some of the Veranda Guarantee & Penthouse Deals are for close in sailings. Let’s face it, there is a chance they will not sail or you may have something (even just concerns about traveling) that keep you from sailing.
To encourage you to consider one of these cruises, Seabourn’s Book with Confidence Program should help significantly.  All bookings made now and for sailings through July 31, 2020, guests will be able to cancel up to 48 hours prior to sailing and receive a 100% Future Cruise Credit (FCC) of any monies paid to Seabourn and currently within cancellation fees. You then would have until December 31, 2020 to rebook with your FCC on any published voyage(s) departing prior to December 31, 2021.
Interested in booking one of these Seabourn experiences or any other cruise or land journey?  Please give me a call, drop me an email or send me a Facebook message!
