Helping You Make Memories Through Travel


We want to help you find the best vacation to help you make memories with your friends and/or family. Travel allows you to make wonderful memories, just like we have with our four children. We traveled with children for a number of years. Now that they are all adults, we can still enjoy making memories.

Our blog not only includes travel information, it includes some of those memories we’ve made.

I remember one of those favorite trips to Walt Disney World. Our youngest was three years old. Our older children, their grandma, and we had been to Disney World so many times that, even though we all loved it, there didn’t seem to be anything new. That changed with this trip. We all lived it through our little one’s eyes. Everything was new and exciting to her.



We like the personal touch, so feel free to call or email us to get information for your next Vacation Adventure. If you don't prefer the personal touch, you can book on your own by clicking the buttom below. Just know that we may be able to find you a better value with the personal touch.

Should You Book Any Travel Now?

If there's one thing we've realized lately, it's that things can change at any moment. Countries had started to open up to tourists, but then they suddenly close. Countries also change their entry requirements including: negative COVID-19 test, mandatory...

Alaska Cruise Outlook

It didn't surprise me when Canada announced a longer cruise ban. However, it did surprise me that they extended it through February 2022. Another full year! This hits large cruise ships hard, since they require a foreign port for a stop, embarkation or debarkation...

COVID-19 Vaccine Requirement

Well, I knew it was only a matter of time when a US cruise company has decided to require the COVID-19 Vaccine to board any of their ships. As of July 1, 2021, all ships belonging to American Queen Steamboat Company and Victory Cruise Lines (sister companies) will...

Booking Cruises

Mid-March of 2020 cruise ships were faced with a no-sail order in the United States. It will be at least April 2021 before any ships will sail with paying passengers from US ports. That means more than a year without cruising. Do I miss that? Yes. We had lots of plans...

New International Air Restrictions

All air passengers arriving from outside the United States will now be required to have a negative COVID-19 test, not more than 3 days old, before they are allowed to board the plane. This applies to all passengers, including US citizens. Be sure you understand this...

Booking a Cruise? Consider These Items First

Many of us can't wait to get on a ship again. We are right there with you. However, before you decide to book your next cruise, consider these issues and if you are willing to take the chance: When will cruising start? Cruise lines are already cancelling sailings from...

Should You Book a Vacation Now?

When we were told to "stay in place" back in March, we were told it would only be for two weeks. Most travel stopped. Cruise ships were given a "no-sail" order. Many resorts shut down. Many hotels shut down. Airlines, however, where you are in closer contact with...

Norwegian Cruise Line’s CruiseFirst Program

If you plan on cruising on Norwegian Cruise Line within the next three years, this is a way to get an additional $150 toward your cruise. You may purchase one of these certificates to apply toward any new reservation, but only through November 30, 2020. Purchase the...

I Want to Go Somewhere, but…

With many venues, states, countries, etc. not open to everyone, it is difficult to know what to do if you want to travel. While many resorts are opening up, and hopefully cruising will start again soon, there are a lot of rules you will need to follow. You could be...

Galveston and the Allure of the Seas

Updated October 23, 2020 In going through a few of my past posts, I can across this one. It is unfortunate that moving the Allure of the Seas to Galveston has been postponed. This is because of a money crunch. Building the new terminal for this large ship is...
