Maybe A Birthday Cruise This Year?

 So, I was thinking of what to do with my birthday this year — and thinking either a week in Tolyo and a week in Bangkok visiting friends…. but I’d have to be able use miles to upgrade to business, or use miles outright… or, maybe convincing friends to join me on a birthday cruise:

So — get on the boat on a Saturdayin Seattle, and getting off the boat the following Tuesday in Vancouver and then catching the train back late that afternoon. And the costs for “couple” as in for each one of two sharing:

Brochure Inside $549
Our Inside $319
You Save 42%
Brochure Oceanview $629
Our Oceanview $369
You Save 41%

Brochure Balcony $819
Our Balcony $519
You Save 37%
Brochure Suite $1,119
Our Suite $719
You Save 36%

The prices shown are US dollars per person, based on double occupancy, and subject to availability. They include port charges but do not include airfare or (where applicable) fuel surcharges or airport or government taxes or fees.

And for those who can’t stand to share (single occupancy):

Double Occupancy Inside $369
Single Occupancy Inside $479
Single Supplement 30%
Double Occupancy Oceanview $419
Single Occupancy Oceanview $554
Single Supplement 32%

And the whole itinerary:

Sat Sep 27 Seattle, WA   5:00pm
Sun Sep 28 Victoria, BC, Canada 8:00am 5:00pm
Mon Sep 29 Astoria, OR 8:00am 2:00pm
Tue Sep 30 Vancouver, BC, Canada 8:00am  

So, if there is any interest, let me know asap so I can get you the rest of the info. Stuff like this goes quick so sooner/better. If there is interest I might just get the suite so we’d all have a balconey to hang out on. Hell, if we got ten people, we might even get a discount!

And here is what I am thinking about for dinner tomorrow when Barb from Kentucky is here for dinner (along with Lynne):

  • Grilled wild sockeye salmon ($6.49 a pound at Safeway)
  • Grilled yellow squash, zucchini, and sweet onions
  • Rice pilaf
  • Wilted spinach salad with a pear gorgonzola dressing
  • Berries for dessert

Oh, and I should mention that we are going to have a VERY SPECIAL GUEST at dinner as well — making a surprise appearance.
