get aboard the next EMS Cruise in 2016!
EMS CruiseSailing March 12-19, 2016, from Port Canaveral, Florida, on the Carnival Valor, we’ll depart on a week-long Eastern Caribbean cruise with stops at four ports of call. We will begin with an all-new port for the EMS Cruise as we dock at Amber Cove in the Dominican Republic. Next up is St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, an Eastern Caribbean port favorite. Our third stop is at San Juan, Puerto Rico followed by another first-time EMS Cruise docking at Grand Turk. Plus, because the ship departs a short distance from the Orlando area, you can add several days to either the start or end of the cruise to take advantage of everything Orlando has to offer.
Initial Deposit

A non-refundable deposit of $25.00 per person is due at time of booking. This deposit is not refundable for any reason and cannot be applied to any other form of travel or merchandise. This deposit must be completed at the time of booking. Booking requests cannot be honored without payment.

Future and Final Payments
Second payments of $250 per person for the EMS Cruise are due by September 15, 2015. Final payments for the EMS Cruise will be due on December 15, 2015. 

Taking a cruise has become a very popular way to vacation. In fact, more than 20 million people go on a cruise every year! Participating in the EMS Cruise is even better because in addition to everything already included with cruising, the EMS Cruise adds on a bunch of extras not available to the general public.
You’ll get a $25 per cabin shipboard credit to use however you would like. We’ll host, the welcome aboard cocktail party which all EMS Cruisers are invited to attend. Reserved exclusively for EMS Cruisers, you’ll enjoy complimentary cocktails, soft drinks and snacks. Plus, you’ll be able to meet everyone else on the EMS Cruise. We’ll also host a final farewell party on the last night of sailing. A group photo will be taken during the cruise and made available to all EMS Cruisers in electronic form or for print purchase at reduced rates after the cruise. All EMS Cruisers receive a subscription to the EMS Cruiser’s Newsletter. Published several times prior to departing, it provides a wealth of information and travel tips so you’ll get the most from your vacation.

Perhaps best of all, bookings include the services of the EMS Cruise staff along with representatives of Lake Country Travel, the official travel agency for the EMS Cruise. These veteran travel professionals will accompany the group for this event and be available to help with every detail both prior to departure and onboard while we sail. As we said, everything has been taken care of for you so all you need to do is relax and have a great time!

While this is an EMS Cruise and many who go along are involved in the emergency services, just as many EMS Cruiser’s are not EMTs or firefighters, they are the family and friends of EMS providers. They sometimes think that an EMS Cruise will be all about EMS or firefighting, and a week packed full of “shop talk.” Nothing could be further from the truth. While no doubt a little bit of “shop talk” sneaks in now and then, many are surprised at how well EMS Cruisers are able to leave the job back on the dock – or back at home. If you, your spouse or your family is worried that they will feel left out, don’t! This trip is first and foremost a vacation. It just happens to be a vacation with hundreds of EMTs, paramedics, first responders and firefighters.
