Be sure to book as soon as possible! Because we often share a departure with other university alumni groups, a limited amount of space on each tour is available for our group. The best cabins and rooms book up quickly, usually only a month or two after the trip is announced. Special pricing and other incentives are also sometimes available for booking early. To avoid disappointment, we recommend making your deposit to hold your reservation as soon as you know you'd like to join us on a trip.
