70th Birthday Cruise

Photography/Story By Deborah O’Mara

Recently I had the opportunity to surprise my husband, Charlie, on his 70th birthday with an extended cruise on the SS Catherine (Saone River & Rhone River) & SS Antoinette (Rhine River). The trip was organized by Pat and Randy Lyon, Realtors at Berkshire Hathaway through their company, Cruise Planners. We had a group of 28 (14 couples) and it was truly amazing! I even visited with two clients in Amsterdam! If I can share one thing about River Cruises, it’s like being at the Ritz Carlton 24/7. I was very fortunate to have three agents watch over my business at Michael Saunders which enabled Charlie and I to be away for three (3) weeks, the longest vacation ever. You too should consider a River Cruise, you deserve it! All aboard as we share our wonderful experience with you.
