A WONDERful Holiday Cruise, Dinner inside Palo’s Private Diningroom

Mike and I were really  looking forward to dinner tonight- Palo is one of our favorites on sea or on land. There was a group of 14 of us, and we were given the private room for dinner which was spectacular…

We started with Antipasto for the table…img_3817 img_3819img_3818

As you can imagine, I didn’t eat all of this food myself- my friends were incredibly gracious throughout our trips together that they now actually wait for me to take pictures of their meals as well as my own, before they would begin to take a bite of their food. At dinner that night, all but 3 of us work in the travel trade- most of us agency owners and travel planners. This was a wonderful group of agents who have helped me in so many more ways than I can ever begin to list or explain. Their value as business colleagues is only outweighed by their friendship. Of course, I would love for you to book your next vacation with Castle Dreams Travel , but to be honest- I just want you to book with any valued and qualified travel agent because there are so many outstanding professionals who are ready and willing to share their knowledge with you and will save you time and money as well as deliver an amazing vacation to you and your family.
