STEP THREE: CONFIRM YOUR CRUISE RESERVATION

Mail both the above form, and your check to: CRUISE-USA, LLC 406 Mc. Namee Ave. Ocean Springs, MS 39564

You will receive a written confirmation of your requested dates, and a complete hire contract by return mail. In addition, you will receive our canal cruise planning package, with charts and information to start planning your cruise vacation. If you prefer, we offer planned itineraries that detail our favorite places to visit along the canal. We'll let you know where the most complete docking facilities are located, with electricity, water, restrooms, and showers. We will suggest our favorite places to eat, stores to get provisions, and where to sample the local fare on your cruise. We'll also suggest the sites to see, and all the things you shouldn't miss during your cruise.

STEP FOUR: COMPLETE, SIGN, AND RETURN THE HIRE CONTRACT

Mail your signed hire contract, and include your check for the balance due, no later that 90 days prior to the charter. Upon receipt, we will mail you additional materials, and an informative guide detailing the operation of the Nimble Nomad Trawler you've hired.

STEP FIVE: PREPARE FOR A WONDERFUL VACATION

Plan a rough itinerary with the planning package we sent you. Or just plan on using one of our leisurely paced "float-plans" if you like. Call us if you have questions, we're glad to help you with every aspect of your trip. Pack your comfortable, casual boating clothes, and camera; and prepare yourself for a great vacation. Most of our clients arrive in Hibiscus Harbor Marina in Union Springs, New York, the evening before their charter begins. We can recommend some fine local hotels and some terrific dining opportunities right in the area. We'll look forward to meeting you at 2pm, at the Hibiscus Harbor Marina. Your introduction and orientation cruise is very straight forward, and then you're off to start your personal cruise.
