Joyce Landry & Jo Kling with cruise line execs at 3rd anniversary NYCAn Anniversary Blast from the Past

Anniversaries lure us down memory lane, so here's a blast from the past:

A 1985 photo of Landry & Kling's 3rd-anniversary party in our NYC office on Madison Ave where we got our start. Cruise line partners included Rick Williams, (left) president of Ocean Cruise Line (we operated our first full ship charter on their Ocean Islander that year); and Ralph Bahna, president of Cunard Line.

Stay tuned as we make preparations for a splendid 35th Anniversary celebration this year!
