I am delighted to report that Tri-Ess is resuming the Dignity Cruises! The first one will be a 7-day cruise May 13-20.
   The cruise line is MSC Cruises, and the ship is the MSC Divina. It features not only regular dining rooms, buffet and several alternative dining venues, but also a casino, Infinity pool, a Broadway size theater, a state- of- the- art spa and a covered pool. The ship is also crossdresser friendly.

  Here is the itinerary: Miami- Philipsburg, St.Marrten- San Juan , Puerto Rico- Nassau, Bahamas- Miami. Departure times are 4-7 P.M.; arrival times are 7-9A.M., except noon at Nassau. As always,  we have provided quality ports of call. The ports of call provide a taste of Dutch, English, and Spanish culture, and there is a lot to do in all the ports. The fares are very inexpensive, and these figures include port fees:

     Inner Stateroom- $513.68
    Ocean view Stateroom- $643.68
     Balcony Stateroom- $813.68

Tri-Ess will provide a $25 rebate for all members current as of May 1. To take advantage of the rebate, please include your Tri-Ess membership number on the sign-up sheet below. Rebates will be paid by check after the cruise. In addition, there will be a $50 shipboard credit * per cabin*.

You will be able to sign up for excursions at the ports. There are  46 in all, generally two to four hours, $42 to $95 per person with some exceptions, wide choices and suited to various levels of activity from light to moderately strenuous.
Staterooms start at 120 sq ft, and are generally for double occupancy, with some three-person rooms. All rooms have air conditioning, bath with shower, interactive TV, telephone, wireless internet (fee), mini bar, safe. 
 There is a deposit of $200. It needs to be paid as soon as possible, since the ship will not allow us to hold staterooms. The form below will tell you how to register and how to communicate with our travel agent. Hope to see you in the Eastern Caribbean!
