I Need a Vacation!

Did you ever say that? I sure have! There are some weeks I say that every day (and some months I may say that every day)! You know how it is…

Anyway, while I do like being home, even for some vacations, I still like to travel.

The best thing about going on a vacation (and I’m not talking about the visiting your relatives vacation, I’m talking real vacation) is that you can do as much or as little as you want. Do stuff, relax, or mix it up with a little of both.

If you’re like me, a hotel room or cruise ship is best. No cooking or cleaning! Camping isn’t for me – too much work!

My favorite vacation is being on a cruise ship. You don’t have to worry about how much dinner will cost. You also don’t have to worry about not having enough to do. Same thing with an all-inclusive resort.

If you like site seeing, or being active, cruises and all-inclusive resorts can also fit the bill, as would a number of tours. A cruise ship can take you to a new place every day, and you get to eat, go to a show, and sleep while you travel to the next port of call (and you don’t have to pack and unpack each night, your “hotel” room is your transportation.

All-inclusive resorts can be fun, because you can do a number of different things without leaving the area. Tours are great, too, for seeing a bunch of stuff, either in the same area, or travelling some during the day to visit new places.

Even Walt Disney World, SeaWorld, or Universal Studios can be great fun, if you have children with you or not.

No matter what you like to do, a travel advisor can help you find just what you want. The travel advisor can do the work for you (as much or as little as you want them to do) and it doesn’t cost anything extra! Sometimes a travel advisor can even get you added value for the same price!

So, don’t be afraid to contact a travel advisor. We are here to help you find the best value for your vacation.

The Best Cruise Line

We are often asked which is the best cruise line. Well, it all depends on you. Ok, so you think that's a non-answer. But think about it, not everyone enjoys the same things you do. Some people like tons of active activities like swimming, water slides, basketball,...

Book a Cruise Now? or Wait?

Let me first explain that while I am a Travel Advisor, and I get paid commission for helping you book your cruise (or hotel, or resort stay, or well...), I want you to have the information you need to decide what vacation will be best for you. I don't want you to come...

COVID-19 “Vaccines” and Travel

If you are "vaccinated" or not, there are rules for travel, especially foreign travel. Some countries require a "vaccination" (sometimes with a negative test, sometimes no test is necessary), sometimes they only require a negative test or proof of recovery in a...

Waiting on Passports

If you are in need of renewing your passport, or getting your first, consider doing it soon. Current wait times for a passport that is not expedited, is anywhere from 12 to 18 weeks. Many countries require your passport to be in effect for at least 3-6 months after...

To Cruise or Not to Cruise, That Is the Question

It seems that just when you think you know the rules, everything changes again. If you are like me, you want to get on a cruise ship. I prefer to not cruise in the summer, so I'm not planning to cruise anytime real soon. However, I sometimes wonder when I should...

Travel Scams: Beware

Will You Be Travelling Soon?

Some of you may want to travel internationally, whether by flying or by cruise. More and more countries are requiring you to have a COVID-19 vaccine. Some won't let you in without a vaccine, but some will allow you in as long as you quarantine upon arrival. Each...

Passports

Do you need to renew your passport, or get your first one? Well, they are taking longer than usual. Wayne had to renew his as it was about to expire. We heard 10-12 weeks. Yes, that is a long time. I am happy to say, though, that his passport renewal took a little...

One of Our Disney Surprises

One year I wanted to surprise my husband and take him to Disney World. I told the children what I was planning and they were excited that just the two of us would have a trip for ourselves. Well, my story and our reveal is in this video. Enjoy....
