Rhine River Cruise
July 30 through August 6, 2022
We will need this time together more than ever!
Pre-cruise and post-cruise details will be announced soon.
After much deliberation, we have decided to postpone the trip until 2022. This decision was confirmed yesterday after having numerous meetings over the past few months with my travel partners, focussing on what would be best for Women On A Roll. The health and well being of our community is always at the forefront of my offerings and this trip is no exception.
We were waiting and hoping the new year and the new administration would also bring new hope and confidence to travel this summer. But there are still simply too many unknown factors. With the uncertainty of when vaccines will be available for everyone, the safety policies for large gatherings (such as Pride Events), and unpredictable restrictions on international travel, it just did not seem feasible to continue to move forward with the trip in 2021.
We have been able to secure the same riverboat, the same itinerary, and the same week, just one year later.
Our new travel dates are:
Cruise Dates: July 30 through August 6, 2022
Pre-Cruise Package in Lucerne, Switzerland: July 28 through 30 (optional)
Post-Cruise Package in Amsterdam, Netherlands: August 6, 7 (optional)
All monies paid toward the trip will be applied toward the new dates. You will remain in the stateroom and category originally booked. Your travel insurance will be carried over and extended to the new date. The cost of the cruise not change.
We are currently working on rescheduling the pre-cruise and post-cruise packages. Once we finalize this with the new 2022 dates, we will notify you.
I have listed the new cruise itinerary dates and payment schedule at the bottom of this email. Always feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns.
In closing, I’d like to share a few heartfelt thoughts with you...
I feel extremely grateful to be working with such wonderful travel partners. The Pollin Group and Avalon Waterways have been truly phenomenal. They have been proactive, flexible, compassionate, and extremely fair in all of my dealings with them. They have taken every measure to smoothly reschedule our trip while preserving the same quality experience we have promised to deliver.
I feel extremely grateful to all of you...our guests, my friends! I appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate through these challenging times that have had such a tremendous impact on travel. I cannot wait to share this experience with you...and hug you!!
Although it is extremely disappointing to have to postpone yet another Women On A Roll trip, it’s important to have perspective. With that in mind, I choose to remain hopeful and full of gratitude. In the big picture, rescheduling travel, not being able to dine out, wearing a mask, and spending too much time alone...well, these are really just inconveniences. Let’s appreciate staying healthy, for ourselves and our loved ones. Let’s appreciate and honor our frontline workers. Let’s share a collective positive energy that our world heals. Kindness matters. Love wins. And we will be together again!
