The first offering of SLD’s Travel Program for 2012 is to be in April: “European Coastal Civilizations,” a cruise on M.V. Le Boréal beginning in Lisbon and ending in Normandy. A pre-boarding extension in Lisbon and a post-debarkation extension in France are available. Trip arrangements are by Thomas P. Gohagan & Company of Chicago. Personal arrangements for coordinated longer stops in Lisbon or Paris can be made through Gohagan. See page 14.
It would be sad to be in a great city such as Lisbon and use it only as a port of departure. The pre-cruise election would give you a taste of Lisbon that could well lure you back someday for a longer stay.
