I was here with the 2017 National Institute of Learning Development (NILD) Conference Group. It was a wonderful time of meeting people in a very special setting. The cruise was so smooth that it was hard to believe we were moving through the Elizabeth River....More

Good idea, bad day. This past Saturday, cold temps placed everyone crowded into the first floor, creating three major problems: (1) impossible to hear narration of the excursion; (2) fogged windows made visibility limited; (3) so many people and tables crowded together made trips to...More

Why when u plan a trip and a hurricane causes u to cancel that u can't get ur money back? Everyone involve in trip might not have the time off work to go the next time. Bad weather is out of our control.
