Community Ambassadorship with Viking Cruise Lines (various dates July - October)

Viking River Cruises has three new shore excursions in La Crosse for their guests this season.  Each needs a local host/ambassador to accompany the guests on the motorcoach.  The three excursions are:  (1) The Dahl Auto Museum tour and Antique Car Ride; (2) The Guadalupe Shrine tour; and (3) the Taste of La Crosse + Rivoli Theater tour.  Between July 9 and Oct. 21, Dahl Auto Museum and the Guadalupe Shrine will each be visited 10 times; the Taste of La Crosse/Rivoli Theater tour will occur 3 times.
What are the specific duties & expectations?
  • Greet the guests at their coach down on the levee where the ship will be docked.
  • Wear your Rotary badge to identify yourself; dress in business casual and/or Rotary garb.
  • Introduce yourself to the coach driver, and deliver clear driving directions to him/her once you leave.
  • Follow the script that will be provided, but feel free to add any additional information or personal anecdotes you may have about life in La Crosse.
  • Represent our city and our club in a positive way.
  • Behave as if you were hosting an informal reception at your home.  Make everyone feel welcome.
  • Enjoy yourself and make some new friends!
In addition to being given a chance to clearly demonstrate our commitment to community service, the club will receive a donation from Viking at the end of the season.  The amount is currently being negotiated, but will be at least $75 per excursion.
