Road Runner Travel Club Update

Cocktail party

Karen Lyons

After two years, the Road Runners were finally able to go on the annual Winter Cruise aboard the Celebrity Equinox. Over 80 members left on March 3 for Fort Lauderdale, Fla., for the next day sailing on what is referred to as the ABC Cruise. Ports of call included Aruba, Bonaire, Curacao, and the Bahamas. New friends and old had a great time from morning to night lounging by the pool, meeting in the many lounges on board, or taking excursions. And did I mention the food?!

The Brandt Travel Team was on board hosting a cocktail party, information meetings, and aiding with any travel questions.

Already over 70 members have signed up for the 2023 annual cruise. The group will be traveling on the Celebrity Beyond. This is a brand-new ship that is launching this month. The members were treated to a preview on the ship during a special meeting on board with Brandt Travel. All agreed this new ship will be something to experience. The Beyond sails on Feb. 19, 2023, for seven nights with ports of call St. Maarten, St. Thomas, and Dominican Republic. If seven nights is not enough, we are offering a back-to-back cruise on the Beyond that sails for an added seven nights.
