|Subject: Norwegian Cruise Lines|
Hi Bill and Pat ...
So sorry to learn of the MS Switzerland's cancellation!!!
We sailed on the Norwegian Dream during the summer of 2000 going to all the Scandinavian capitals and Russia - a 16 day cruise. It is a very nice ship and Norwegian Cruise Lines have wonderful staff and meals. However, it is a true cruise ship, but I would not call it a glitzy ship by any means. They have stopped all their formal night requirements which is a plus to me. I think you would enjoy it, and were it me, I would hate to lose the $2000.
I don't know your ages but if over 50, you might want to look into the Elderhostel Adventures Afloat programs which offer I believe some of types of trips you prefer. Their January 1, 2002 - December 31, 2002 catalogue is on line at: http://www.elderhostel.org/programs/search/adventures_afloat/text.asp Cyndy - NY
