This week sees the fruit of 6 months of planning:

  • the finalising of a full schedule of cruises from July 2014 to March 2016
  • the production of our first ever genealogy cruises catalogue

We also want to remind you of the closing date (later this month) of special benefits for early bookings on 3 of our cruises and also the last 3 weeks to get special low air fares from Sydney for our Norfolk island conference/tour.

HicksI love UTP genealogy cruises for a whole host of reasons. Getting to meet international speakers and be inspired by them; to hear and learn from other Australian and New Zealand speakers; catching up with old genealogy friends; meeting new friends; having the ability to go to a conference and not having to worry about getting there each day or finding a place to go for dinner each night; the opportunity to see new places; fine dining every night and ship board entertainment. It is the ultimate holiday for me!
