Cruise with Me!

Cruising 2018

I will be working as the bridge instructor/director on Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth from October 1-15, 2018. This is roundtrip out of London (Southampton), England. See the Canary Islands, Spain, and Portugal on this cruise – La Coruna, Spain; Funchal, Madeira, Portugal; La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain; Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain; Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain; Lazorote, Canary Islands, Spain, and Lisbon, Portugal.

Come join the fun! My favorite memory from Funchal, when I was there on one of my 2015 cruises!

If this sounds like fun, contact Cunard directly or talk to your travel agent.  Keep in mind, that I cannot guarantee I will be on the cruise.  Cruise lines have been known to cancel entertainment staff in favor of selling my cabin.  This however does not usually happen.  I am planning on being there!


Cruise with me in 2019!

I will be cruising on Azamara’s Quest as the bridge instructor/director embarking at Cairns, Australia on March 8, and debarking at Singapore on March 22.  Priced from $2799, learn more here.


Join me in the summer of 2019 on Cunard’s Queen Victoria.  I will be the bridge instructor/director on a roundtrip cruise out of Southampton from Aug. 11 to Aug. 23, 2019, touring the British Isles.  Prices start at $2039, learn more here.


Join me again in 2019 back on Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth!  I will be the bridge instructor/director on a roundtrip cruise out of Southampton from Sept. 6 to Sept. 20.  See Iceland and the British Isles.

Prices start at $2679, learn more here.

These cruises are never guaranteed to me as the cruise line can change its mind, but that has only happened once in all the years I’ve been doing this.  I would love to see some friends with me on any of these cruises!

Rolfe Memorial Scholarship Fund, providing $1000 renewable scholarships to Engineering students.  The next fund is the Rolfe Bridge Fund.  This fund provides financial support to the WannaPlayBridge High School Residential Bridge Camp (when we manage to get enough students) and also provides $500 renewable scholarships to Kathy’s students who have at least 1 masterpoint upon graduating from high school and who continue to add to the masterpoint holding while in college. The Bridge Fund also provides scholarships to students winning at the local Unit 131 Spring Tournament when a student section is offered.You can read about these scholarships on this website or read and apply for them via the Truman Heartland Community Foundation.
