    Hi Linda,
    I am beginning the search for the perfect 40th wedding anniversary trip for our family. We have some time to get it perfectly planned, as our 40th is in May of 2027. We can celebrate early though, and I want to give the kids and their families a year of notice so they can make arrangements. Our numbers are quite large as we continue to add to our family by marriages and grandchildren. My guess is that we will number around 35 by the time we take the trip, but 10 of those would be small children. I am looking for a place with excellent service, countless amenities, and a place we won’t want to leave after a week:)

    • Hi Kathy, Thank you for your inquiry for this special occasion. I’d be delighted to assist in planning the perfect 40th-anniversary trip for your large and growing family. I’ll reach out to you directly to discuss further details and create a memorable experience for everyone. Looking forward to connecting soon!
