MaryOur group leader, Mary, took a great group to Branson, MO for a few days of fun before boarding the American from St. Louis to Memphis. Her favorite travel memories from the year came from this trip:

“In addition to enjoying meeting and visiting with our clients, and helping them find the right cruise or trip for their vacation, I was very fortunate to spend 11 nights and 12 days with a wonderful group gathered for our Branson/American Queen trip. We all met in Branson on Sept 1, 2013, ready to enjoy great shows, sightseeing in the area and delicious meals. Ballpark - game from roofAfter 4 nights in Branson we were treated to a special city tour in St. Louis before a luxurious night at the hotel adjacent to the St. Louis Cardinals ballpark and we could see the game from the rooftop restaurant! We boarded the American Queen the following day for 6 nights of cruising, interesting port town visits, shopping, excellent meals and entertainment along with our leisure time. Our group members came from North Carolina, Iowa, Indiana, Alabama, Texas, California and Oregon. The group was very congenial and we all enjoyed sharing beautifully served, delicious meals and sometimes multiple desserts on the American Queen! After disembarking in Memphis, a few of us stayed over for a few days to visit historic and interesting places such as The Civil Rights Museum and Graceland, and had more fun choosing places to eat and enjoy great music and people-watching on Beale Street.

American QueenI am thankful for the opportunity to work with our clients and to enjoy continuing relationships after one trip and then work on the next vacation plan with them! We really appreciate pictures from everyone’s trips in addition to anything someone shares with us about their experiences. If anyone has an idea for a group trip such as this one, with family, friends or friends you haven’t met yet, please give me a call or e-mail and we’ll put together another fun trip or cruise.”

Sounds like Mary is ready to go again! Do you have a group who wants to travel together, or an idea for a fun group trip? You can call her at the office 800-578-1479 or send her an e-mail:
