The Working Vacation & The Gentlemen Host Program

What's New?


The 2007 sailing schedules are up!


The 2007 sailings aboard the magnificent Mississippi Queen and the grand American Queen have been added to the Delta Queen Steamboat Company's page. Look for 2 Big Band sailings aboard the AQ in June of next year, and 2 more Big Band sailings aboard the MQ in July and August of next year.

Silversea Cruises and The Working Vacation Reteam - The Working Vacation's Gentlemen Hosts have once again returned to Silversea Cruises. We will be inviting gentlemen for selected voyages on all four of Silversea Cruises' ships.

We deeply value this opportunity and to be recognized for the added attention to detail that creates a higher quality within the industry and for The Working Vacation’s Gentlemen Host Program. The Silversea Cruises Host Program was founded ten years ago by The Working Vacation and it’s very exciting to a part of the re-vitalization of hosting for their guests.
