  • Baltic Sea Cruise for July 2008- Going Fast!
  • Baltic Sea Cruise- July 4-16, 2008 (12 Days)!!
  • Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

    Here is a fantastic story from Audrey I want to share with you...

    Dear Richard,

    Last year -- the summer of 2006 -- I had been widowed for 3 years and living alone. My son and daughters were located elsewhere, so I had become accustomed to having a social life with my lady friends and was quite content to pursue my interests and hobbies on my own. Then, after seeing you on Oprah and further corresponding with you; reading your newsletters, etc.; I began to believe that I, also, could be brave enough to venture forth on one of your meetings or happenings or even a cruise!! I really enjoyed reading about your own personal search and adventures. Of course, I was very sorry you had to cut your trip to Chile short!

    In November, 2006, when the Crystal Cruise to the Panama Canal was being talked about ... I suddenly decided to take the plunge, so to speak, and actually book the cruise -- even though I knew not a soul. You were kind enough to arrange a roommate for me. This was going to be my very first cruise. What excitement! All this at my age of 69. Better late than never -- is a very true statement.

    On that cruise in January 2007, I had a fabulous experience meeting and enjoying all of you, my new friends. It was nice to have the support of senior bachelorettes like myself at the dinner table each evening to share our day's activities, etc.

    Thank you so very much, Richard, for inspiring me to attempt something like this on my own. Now, I am so ready for more adventures, including having met a really nice gentleman here in my hometown through an on-line dating service. He, also, is at a time in his life where he wants to go out and have fun! We're going to do a lot of that together. (big smile). We are leaving next week for a two week Princess cruise to Hawaii. This fall, we are planning to go fishing in Cabo San Lucas. After that, who knows.

    It's so great to feel alive again and to be looking forward to so many things! Thanks again, Richard. You were definitely instrumental in my beginning this new direction in my life.



    Richard here:

    Stories like this make me feel really good. Newsletters for the past 2 1/2 years have emphasized the point that if you want to make new relationships, male and/or female, you have to take the plunge, to quote Audrey. Just look how happy she looks!! This could be you.....but you have to get out of the house and make something happen. I understand cruises and trips may not be in everyone's budget, but you can join many free local organizations and clubs The point is, you must be pro-active, and I hope stories like Audrey's helps to inspire you. It sure inspires me!!

    Last week's Newsletter (see below) mentioned the upcoming Spectacular Baltic Sea cruise next July. The cruise is approaching sold out and 3/4 of the cabins I have blocked have been taken. I highly encourage you to call Leah "B" at Coastline Travel, 1-800-448-2374 asap if you are interested. Maybe you will find happiness like so many others have on these cruises.

    Ciao for now,

    Some computers have a problem opening the photos from the Senior Bachelor Newsletter. If so, wait a few days and go to and click on the most recent Newsletter and you'll probably be able to see them there.

    Baltic Sea Cruise for July 2008- Going Fast!

    ** NOTICE** Holland America (and all of the sister companies) has implemented a $5 /per person/per day fuel supplement charge to all bookings. For the July 4th 2008 Baltic Sea Cruise this will add $60. Udated invoices will be sent out as soon as price adjustments have been made.

    Thank you for your understanding as this matter was out of our control.

    A SPECTACULAR Senior Bachelor cruise, our 6th one, from July 4-16, starting and ending in Copenhagen, will sail to some of the most beautiful spots in the world.

    Imagine sailing through the fiord's in Norway, and spending 2 FULL DAYS AND NIGHTS in St. Petersburg, visiting Copenhagen, Helsinki, Stockholm, and Oslo, Berlin, and other cities. We will be sailing on the Rotterdam, one of Holland America's 5 star ships. This will be our 5th cruise with Holland America and past cruisers would tell you about the comfortable beds, fantastic food, superior service, great nightly shows, super shore excursions, workout room and spa facilities, and very interesting (free) lecture series, art exhibitions, and more.

    And all of this with our group of around 32, and thousands of other passengers. All kinds of fun will present itself!!!! There is the possibility of Romance as well if all of our past cruises are good indicators....and which has been the case with each cruise thus far!!!

    The demand for this cruise is very high, and is already approaching sold out. We have been able to "block" 32 beds, that is beds, not cabins. I have tried, unsuccessfully, to obtain more but there are none available.

    Every previous Senior Bachelor cruise has disappointed many people who waited too long to sign up and then found there was not a place available.

    Here is a NO RISK way to reserve your spot. You can receive a 100% refund of your deposit ($600 in this case) if you cancel within 76 days of the ship's sailing. And if you purchase the optional insurance (everyone should do this, it's a good deal) you can cancel very close to departure and get all or most of your deposit back.

    If there is at least a 50% chance you might go, please call Coastline Travel at 1-800-448-2374 and ask for Leah "B".

    If you would like a roommate to avoid the single supplemental charge, please let me know, not Leah, as I take care of this. You would be amazed at how many new friendships have been formed this way!!!

    Below is the pricing information. I encourage you to be thinking ahead so you can be part of this marvelous experience. Go for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
