Baja California Mini-reunion

Hello ’55 Family,

   First, thanks to all who made suggestions for our next minireunion.  There were lots of places mentioned but the one that seemed to appeal to enough of us was the Sea of Cortez and the Baja California peninsula in Mexico.  We will go there with UnCruise Adventures, embarking March 3, 2018.  UnCruise was our cruise company for the Columbia and Snake Rivers trip in 2016 and met with universal approbation.

   The attachment will give you an idea of the trip, prices and the ship configuration.  The ship carries 84 passengers and UnCruise will hold 16 cabins for us until December. If it looks like there will be more of us, they will probably increase that. Being a group gives us a discount on the price, and those who have been UnCruise clients in the past get an additional discount. More information is on the way to all class members via snail-mail.

   To book, call Linda at 855-575-9358. The group reservations hours are 10 AM- 7 PM Eastern time. The office is in Seattle. Be sure to tell Linda, or Astrid, who also answers that phone, that you are with Princeton ’55. The UnCruise general number is 888-862-888; they will direct you to the right office should there be a problem.

   To allow time to make your connection for transfer to and from the ship, book your flight into Los Cabos, MX to arrive before 2:30 PM on March  3 and to depart from Los Cabos after 1:30 PM on March 10.

   The more I read and hear about the region and its wildlife, the more eager I am to get there. Our Hip, hip, ole might not seem foreign there.
