Sharon Dirlam's "Tours and Cruises" column on Nov. 17 was instrumental in making our New Orleans Mardi Gras Package, Feb. 8-12, a huge success. We received many, many phone calls, some from as far as San Francisco, and our mail was filled with letters requesting further information. We are just about sold out. We are at 11500 W. Olympic Blvd., Suite 345, Los Angeles 90064, phone (213) 312-4525 or (800) 446-5270. We can't begin to thank you for your help.
