I have recently recommended a friend, Tracey Roberts to book a cruise for her and 30 other people, they are traveling on Carnival Spirit July 2017. Just wondering, do you give vouchers/discount for people that send you business? Tracey booked through Christie Gowan and said that she was sent to Christie from us."

Little Diomede Island is an island of Alaska, lying in the 82km-wide Bering Strait, midway between Russia and the USA. Its larger twin, Big Diomede (3.8 km away), is Russian and lies on the other side of the International Date Line. Little Diomede would fit into a square of side 3.5km and highest point 494m. Its population of about 135 is almost all Inglikmiut Eskimo, and all live in the hillside village of Diomede on the west coast. The Bering Strait is generally frozen between mid-December and mid-June, and villagers carve an airstrip on the ice for delivery of necessities. During other months helicopters land on a helipad to make deliveries.

The location of Diomede is the only area that does not have near-vertical cliffs to the water. Behind the village and around the entire island rocky slopes rise at about 40° up to the relatively flattened top. The island has very scant vegetation. When a US Senator for Alaska visited the island by Black Hawk helicopter in 2002, he said “I did not realize you were this remote.” Walking the terrain is hard, there are no shops or public facilities, the wind is relentless, and persistent fog shrouds the island during the warmer months.

Little Diomede Eskimos live a subsistence lifestyle, harvesting fish and crab, hunting beluga whales, walrus, seals and polar bears. During WWII, Big Diomede served as a Russian military base. All Little Diomede residents were removed to the mainland, and any inhabitants who strayed across the waters too close to Big Diomede where taken captive by the Russians. During the Cold War, the section of the border between the U.S. and the USSR separating Big and Little Diomede became known as the "Ice Curtain". Interestingly, in 1987, Lynne Cox swam from Little Diomede to Big Diomede (approx. 3.5 km, USA to Russia) and was congratulated jointly by Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Reagan.
