Woman Marks 282nd Cruise With Princess Cruises

May 30, 2019 | Jackie Sheckler Finch

In 1989, Ilene Weiner and her husband set sail aboard the Fair Princess to the Caribbean. That was the beginning of an amazing journey and a long-lasting love affair.

Three decades later, Ilene is still cruising. She is now the most-traveled guest on Princess Cruises and just celebrated her 282nd cruise, marking 2,500 days at sea. Read more...

Summer Vacation: Three Bargain Destinations

May 24, 2013 | Roger

Haven’t planned a summer vacation yet? Sometimes the best deals happen by making plans at the last minute. In fact, the next few weeks feature some of the best buys of the year for vacations! We’ve found three surprising locations where the deals are good, but act fast because the sale season for these destinations can be surprisingly short.

Dash and a Flash

May 20, 2013 | Roger

Sales happen in the travel industry on a daily basis. So many, so often that even we can’t keep track of all of them. However, this week there are two really great sales from our travel partners that we want to shed some light on, offering great value for travelers this week only. Be it a beach and pool vacation, or a cruise to just about anywhere, there’s a special deal available this week.

Norwegian Dashes To Savings

Our friends at Norwegian Cruise Line have a great deal starting tomorrow through Thursday May 24. Book a three night or longer sailing on any future Norwegian Cruise Line adventure and you’ll pay a reduced deposit and take advantage of some great onboard credit deals, as much as $250 per stateroom. Crown Cruise Vacations is offering lots of extras as well. Choose your own amenities, be it shipboard credit, specialty dining reservations or romance packages.  This sale includes all ships, including the brand new Norwegian Breakaway, and her sister, the Norwegian Getaway, due to sail from Miami starting this winter. The Norwegian Breakaway is an amazing ship sailing from New York, and you can view some highlights from her christening earlier this month above.

That’s some nice extra cash to spend in the spa or eating at one of the many premium dining experiences that these ships have to offer, including Geoffrey Zarkarian’s Raw Bar aboard Breakaway. The deals are for three days only, Tuesday May 21 to Thursday May 24 – so if a cruise is in the works, the best time to make plans is now!

Club Med Savings in a Flash

Our friends at Club Med are offering some amazing deals this week too. In addition to the excellent values that the Semi-Annual Sale brings, Club Med is in the middle of a six day flash sale, offering discounts at up to 40% off at some of their best resorts in the Americas, including Turkoise – the adults only resort on one of the best beaches in the Caribbean, and our favorite, Sandpiper Bay, their four star, family friendly resort in Florida. With pricing starting as low as $763 per person for seven nights at an all-inclusive resort, and getting an additional $200 in resort credit from Crown Cruise Vacations, this is a deal to act on. And act fast, because the sale ends on Wednesday, May 23.

Beach Bums: The 5 Best Beaches in the Caribbean

May 6, 2013 | Roger

Fun in the sun and sea is something that we love here at the office. We dream about getting away on a daily basis… after all, selling vacations all day can do that to a guy. With the weather finally turning warmer, our mind has turned to the beach – and specifically finding the best beaches for a Caribbean vacation. We’ve found five beaches that we think are just outstanding and help make the perfect Caribbean getaway.

The Best Beach in the Caribbean

March 14, 2013 | Roger

We won’t lie, we’re big fans of Club Med. We’ve definitely talked about it before, and we had a fabulous time when we were at Sandpiper Bay in Florida. But with spring coming upon us, people in the office are getting itchy to get away from it all for a while… and the more we think about where to go, the more we’re drawn to Club Med again, this time at Turkoise – the adults only all-inclusive resort at Turks and Caicos.

Under the Sea in Grand Cayman

March 6, 2013 | Heidi

The deeper our submarine sank, the less colorful the underwater world became. That was a surprise for me aboard my first Atlantis Submarine dive.

For some reason, I thought life down deep would be like in the movies – vibrant Technicolor. Not so.

Our submarine guide Dan explains that colors begin to fade the deeper we go into the ocean. “The vibrant colors you see in photographs of the underwater world are the result of using artificial light,” Dan says.

Secrets of St. Thomas: 3 Hidden Treasures

November 15, 2012 | Roger

St. Thomas has become one of the most popular cruise destinations in the Caribbean with virtually every single cruise ship stopping on this US Virgin Island at least once over the course of the sailing season. With all that traffic, one could be forgiven for thinking that every single inch of the island is explored and well-known, but we polled the office and came up with three great destinations on the island that are at least a bit off the beaten path.

What do you do on that Private Island anyway?

October 24, 2012 | Roger

Cruising the Caribbean, its hard to get excited about those private island destinations sometimes. It might just feel like another day at the beach when in reality, the ship’s pool might work just as well. But cruise lines are making these private destinations a real attraction and something worth visiting. Royal Caribbean has Labadee, off the coast of Haiti, and they make the client experience very special. Here’s a quick video about all the fun that Labadee has to offer. We’ll see you on the zip line!

Many seven night Royal Caribbean sailings stop at Labadee, take a look at all your different options by clicking here.
