In the middle of winter, many of us start wishing for warm weather places. If you are one of the fortunate wishers, your wishes just might come true in 2010, if you act quickly. This is especially true if your vacation dreams involve a cruise.

Dave Kronk, who is no stranger to ACB and many of our members who have taken cruises with Dave in years past, has put together another cruise which will provide, in addition to fun, food, and all the other great things that are part of the cruise experience, accommodations especially for cruisers who are blind or visually impaired. Many members who have taken cruises organized by Dave have commented to me on the overall accessibility of the cruise ships and how well prepared cruise staff members have been in terms of meeting the needs of blind and visually impaired passengers. Guided tours of the ships, braille menus and the willingness of everyone to assist were details which made Dave Kronk's cruises a particular pleasure for those with whom I spoke. In addition, if a minimum of 20 people take this cruise, Dave will make a contribution to ACB in an amount based on the number of cruisers. So, here's a wonderful opportunity to benefit both yourself and your organization.

The cruise will depart on Oct. 17, 2010 from Los Angeles (Port of Long Beach) aboard the Carnival Splendor and return on Oct. 24. The ports it will visit include Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan, and Cabo San Lucas.

Dave has already started taking reservations for this cruise, so if you are interested, don't wait for the snow to stop, or the ice to melt. Contact him either by phone at (618) 409-0143 or by e-mail at [email protected]. Then prepare to have a fabulous time!
