Regarding the March, 2020 cruise plans being considered to 
coincide with Mosquito Beaters, it seems the first ship of choice, 
Harmony of the Seas – a very popular ship in the Royal Caribbean fleet. 
 
Travel agent David Griffis reports that they have closed out the group
bookings, all reservations are now BASED on “availability” status and
several room classifications are very limited.
 
Harmony of the Sea’s schedule:
Depart Port Canaveral  –  Monday, March 15, 2020 for a 7 day cruise.
        Sailing to:  Coco Cay (Royal Caribbean’s private island),  Cozumel, 
                            Roatan Island, Honduras, and Puerto Costa Maya.
 
If you have interest in this cruise it is suggested that you call:
 David Griffin, AAA Travel, 321-253-9100 ext. 236     ASAP 
or contact Royal Caribbean directly. 
                           
We are expecting a great turnout based on the inquiries received.                     
                  If you will be joining us please let either:
