Tourin’ Bearcats accepting reservations for Mediterranean cruise

A cruise to the Western Mediterranean will be the next trip offered by Tourin’ Bearcats, the travel program for Northwest Missouri State University alumni and friends.

The Northwest Alumni Association-sponsored trip, which is open to the public, will be Sept. 4-13. Cruise packages start at $1,839 per person; however, upgrades are available. All options are based on double occupancy. The price does not include airfare, which is estimated at $1,600 from Kansas City, Mo.

Trip highlights include visits to Barcelona, Palma De Mallorca, Provence, Florence/Pisa, Rome and Naples.

“The Northwest Alumni Association’s Tourin’ Bearcats travel program gives our alumni the opportunity to travel to places all throughout the world,” said Bob Machovsky, director of alumni relations and annual gifts. “What is nice about the trips is that they are all planned for the alumni, so it gives them a relaxing way to travel without having to worry about all the details. It also allows them to travel with a group of people that they already share the commonality of being Northwest alumni.”

Recent Tourin’ Bearcats destinations have included Alaska, Mexico, San Antonio, Virginia Triangle, Ireland and a Danube River cruise. Tourin’ Bearcats trips are co-sponsored by KXCV-KRNW, Northwest’s 100,000-watt National Public Radio affiliate.

Reservations, with a $350 per person deposit, are due at booking, and final payment is due May 29. Early registration is encouraged due to limited space availability.
