Site Visits and Contractor Meetings
Windstar Cruise from Reykjavik to Dublin

Dear NECA Members,
This year’s International Study Mission travels to Iceland. Our site visit in Reykjavik will be particularly interesting as we see how buildings are adapted to suit Iceland’s unusual climate.

We’ll base in Reykjavik to explore the city and it’s environs, that will give us a real insight to life in Iceland. We’ll spend a day visiting Thingvellir National Park that encompasses some of Iceland’s famous landscapes. We’ll also explore Reykjavik, go whale watching and venture along the coast for a “taste of Iceland,” yes, fresh lobster for lunch. For those coming only to Iceland, you might come early, and we’ll organize a 2-day pre-excursion into the countryside.

The Hotel Borg sits on historic Asuturvollur Square, next store to the Cathedral and National Parliament Building and it’s a short walk from the major shopping, dining and nightlife quarter. Built in 1940 as a luxury hotel, this property has been renovated in a modern style. It’s a 4-star property;
probably Reykjavik’s best.

For those with more time, on Friday, July 29, we’ll board Windstar’s Star Legend for an 11-day cruise to Dublin via Denmark, Norway and Scotland. The Star Legend has just been renovated with a capacity of only 212(106 all-suite cabins). This is a yacht-like experience that is highly recommended by many of our NECA travelers. The daily itinerary is described below.

Windstar called to say availability on the Star Legend is getting tight, which is why this brochure is coming so early. I urge you to reserve quickly to insure joining us in the “Lands of the Midnight Sun!
