Coffee Shop Gang 2022 Greece Trip

June 17, 2022 - June 26, 2022

Prior to beginning our Greek &  Aegean voyage, we will enjoy a one-night stay in a hotel in Venice, Italy.

The exact hotel for the 2022 trip has not confirmed yet but it will be the Hotel Principe or something very similar. 

Here are the details from the Pre Pandemic hotel:

Hotel Principe, Venice, Italy

Hotel Principe is a formal, upscale 139-room hotel with classic touches in the Cannaregio district on the Grand Canal. The view is amazing on the terrace overlooking the canal where guests can enjoy all meals, including the free breakfast and free WIFI in common areas.

Norwegian Gem has it all. Chill out by the pool, get lucky in the casino, unwind at the spa and visit the most scene-inspiring place on earth, the Aegean Sea. Accommodations range from luxurious multi-room or romantic suites to spacious and affordable staterooms.

While not one of Norwegian Cruise Line's newest or largest vessels, Norwegian Gem nonetheless has a fierce fan base. It has a large number of repeat passengers who love this particular ship, Norwegian's casual Freestyle Cruising concept, its excellently produced Las Vegas-style shows, and its wide variety of dining options.

The fun starts as soon as you board Gem via the Atrium on Deck 7, which serves as a busy hub of activities, from live musical performances to trivia contests to movies. Overhead, an eye-catching custom chandelier features color-changing lights, and the centrally located Java Cafe & Bar is usually packed from morning to night.

Flexibility and a casual vibe are hallmarks of Norwegian's Freestyle Cruising, which means that almost 2,400 passengers can enjoy the freedom to dine where, when and with whom they wish (other than at the specialty restaurants, which usually need reservations) and only have to dress up for dinner if they want to.

Perusing the Freestyle Daily newsletter reveals a staggering amount of activities to choose from, some of which cost extra but many of which are free, such as the always-popular scavenger hunt, silly pool contests, card lessons and food demonstrations.

Norwegian Gem's wide variety of onboard activities offers something for every type of traveler, from gambling through the night to meeting other passengers in friendly competitions to simply lounging by the pool. It would be a challenge to do everything, but trying is a fun occupation at sea.

COFFEE SHOP GANG OF GLOUCESTER TRIP DETAILS

DETAILS

Post Pandemic Trip details.  Since it is too early to arrange airfare for June, 2022, that part of the trip will be finalized in August, 2021.  As we all know the world shut down during Covid and travel to Europe from USA has been impossible for 2 consecutive summers Mediterranean Cruises for 2022 are already selling out. I have blocked as many cabins as I could and am taking deposits now so we won’t miss out on another summer of travel to Europe.

Right now, all that is needed to secure your reservation is a refundable deposit of $125 per person (Refundable until Feb 2022). All details about the cabin prices are listed above.  The final payment for everything will be due in early Feb. 2022.  Click below to add your info and cc info.  As always call Laurie with any questions. We will need a cc of your passport to ensure all info is exact.

 NCL has given our group terrific pricing well below their bookable rate and they have thrown in a bunch of amenities listed below.

I have arranged ALLIANZ group insurance for this trip. They were phenomenal towards our group during COVID-19 and painlessly refunded everyone’s money even though the policies were nonrefundable. 

Although the hotel and flight pricing has not been confirmed, pricing should be similar to the canceled trip and we should again be staying at the Hotel Principe directly on the Canal in Venice. Details will be available in August 2022.

Because of the virus please expect to show proof of vaccination to enter Europe.

Norwegian GEM Coffee Shop Gang Group Amenities:

All of our staterooms will receive $100. On-Board Credit!

PLUS Choose 1 of 2 Amenities from the photo below. This is included in your cabin price.

NOTE- THE $50 EXCURSION CREDIT IS FOR PASSENGER 1 ONLY AND CAN BE APPLIED TO MULTIPLE EXCURSIONS AT EACH PORT. 🙂

Looking at picturesque Argostoli, you wouldn’t know it suffered a devastating earthquake in 1953. The city and its surrounding area are full of treasures, including a 12th-century Byzantine cathedral and beautiful 16th century frescoes. And the nearby underground Lake of Melissani is simply magical. Enter the caves to find ancient stalactites, and marvel at the scattered rays of light beaming through, turning the water an intense blue.
