What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in traveling/cruising and sharing those experiences with other passionate travelers that live in the Ashburn, South Riding, Aldie and Willowsford areas of Loudoun County, Virginia. All travelers are welcome - families, solo travelers, couples, seniors, multi-generational, world travelers and newbies.

We are a local Expedia CruiseShipCenters that will be coming to the community. The goal will be to have monthly travel education sessions, meet and greets (food and fun) to learn about travel opportunities and to meet and socialize and discuss upcoming travel plans. Membership is free.

Although our brand specializes in cruises, each Expedia CruiseShipCenters location operates as a full-service travel agency offering flights, hotels, tours and resort packages – all at Expedia® prices. Join my 7-Seas club and you will be entered to win a free cruise and gain access to our exclusive reduced rates and promotions.
