GCT use to have  trips that used NCL, CUNARD, HOLLAND AMERICA, etc.  At some point, a few years ago, they stopped.  I remember because I was one (of many) who complained when they were no longer available through GCT.  Then, GCT started using the cruiselines again--including 2010.  Recently I enquired about an NCL trip doing the Scandinavian Capitals for 2011 and was told by the GCT representative that they were NO LONGER OFFERING ANY  large ship cruises starting in 2011.  I'm hoping I was misinformed.  Has anyone else heard anything?

GCT has a statement on their web site stating they will not offer ocean cruises in 2011.  If you want to read it, hover your mouse pointer over Trips on the upper left of this page and click Ocean Cruises from the drop-down menu.  For an alternative, check out Road Scholar (aka Elderhostel) which does have programs on ocean cruise lines.
