About this trip

Come From Away is based on actual events that took place on September 11, 2001 and the days that followed. A total of 38 planes landed in Gander, Newfoundland carrying nearly 7,000 passengers and crew. This was an extraordinary challenge to take on for a small town like Gander with the population of only 10,000 people.

Join us for Broadway’s Come From Away that has won Best Musical all across America. Our tour in Chicago begins at Water Tower Place for shopping and lunch on your own with your friends at Water Tower Place Foodlife food court, Mity Nice Grill or choose from the many local restaurants along the Magnificent Mile Michigan Ave. After lunch, we depart for the Cadillac Palace Theatre and our 2:00 p.m. matinee musical performance of Come From Away.

The New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of nearly 7,000 stranded passengers and the small town in Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Following the musical, we depart for home and will enjoy a boxed dinner (included) on our drive back to Champaign.

We truly enjoyed all aspects of the Princess Cruise including Stevie Jay’s coordination and Bill’s management of all travel to and from San Francisco via Chicago’s O’Hare and Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. We had several seasoned travelers wishing to share their experiences. Princess was outstanding with their meal plan and treating us as their special guests for the fifteen days. Highlights were our ability to chose our day trips to Volcanoes National Park, Pearl Harbor National Monument, Kolohani Plantation and Haleakala National Park. We will travel with Stevie Jay and We Travel again as long as we are mobile and enthusiastic about traveling!
I had a wonderful time. Food was great and the show, Yuletide Celebration, was outstanding! It was my first time for Yuletide Celebration, and I am looking forward to next year.
Great company. The show was awesome. Even better than last year. Loved the singers, orchestra and emcee. Really put us in the holiday spirit. The beef house dinner service was slow and found ourselves helping them!!! The trip was great.
Canyon Country: Fantastic trip. Awesome views of the national parks. Optional excursion to Monument Valley was a highlight for us. Mary Beth always provides excellent service. This tour was no exception! Bob and Cindy

Great trip experience. All canyons were on our "to see" list. Peter was great as our guide. Anna was super good driver and kept a really clean coach. Accommodations were well located, well appointed, pleasant and clean. Dining experiences were great. Ready to go again.
