Happy Traveler Comment
Hi Rachel. Thank you so much for making such great arrangements for our NCL Pearl cruise. Everything went so smoothly for boarding the ship in Miami, all the in-between happenings, and departing from the ship at the end of our cruise. We really appreciated your picking our cabin for convenience. It was about 10 steps from the elevators. The NCL Pearl is a beautiful ship and our cabin was tops. We had great service and met a lot of new people. Thank you again for your great reservation services. I'll be happy to recommend you to any of my friends who are looking to do a cruise. — Marcie

Good Old Summertime. Cold lemonade, brass bands, picnics, ice cream socials and porch swings are what make summertime in the south so wonderful. Fly kites from the top deck, and eat up all the apple and cherry pie during your immersion in summer American-style.

Fourth of July Celebration. Celebrate with St. Louis on Independence Day with brass bands and red, white, and blue bunting. Watch the fireworks under the Gateway Arch as you salute America’s founding fathers.
