34th Reunion Cruise
Celebrity Cruises – Ship Infinity
7 Night Alaska Hubbard Glacier Cruise
Departs From and Returns to Vancouver, BC
Sunday, June 18, 4:30 pm to Sunday, June 25, 7:00 am

Now is the time to book your place on the John Gaither Reunion Cruise before the special group rate expires on April 1. As you may know, the 2017 Reunion and Annual Meeting will be setting sail on an 8-day Alaskan Cruise, June 18, 2017. Don't wait to book and miss the special rates we've negotiated for you.

This is an excellent opportunity to combine the Gaither Reunion with a dream vacation to Alaska, a special trip the whole family can enjoy. Gaze in wonder at the steep Inside Passage and visit the bucket-list wonder Hubbard Glacier. Tour the last frontier town, Ketchikan, famed for feisty salmon and Alaskan culture and Sitka, considered Alaska’s most beautiful seaside town. Consider spending a few days before or after the cruise in Vancouver, BC, named the Top Destination in Canada in TripAdvisor's 2016 Travelers’ Choice awards.

We will be sailing aboard Celebrity’s “The Infinity”, the brilliant star of the Millennium® Class shines even brighter, since her grand makeover in October 2015. Great food, wonderful entertainment, and dozens of available on-shore excursions can make this a trip of a lifetime for your family. Here are details to help you book and plan your trip:
