Way to Travel- With or Without an Agent

You can travel on your own, with a guided group, or a combination of the two.  A fourth way would be to go on a cruise.  And where you are going is often the deciding factor in which is best for you. On your own: If you are traveling to a foreign country, particularly one […]

Things Not to Touch

Life is not a sanitary experience.  You are continually forced to be with hordes of humans with all types of coughs, colds and questionable hygiene habits.  If you are a “gemophobe,” you will want to carry a lot of antiseptic handy wipes with you, whether you go to the movies, a sports stadium, church or […]

What Is A Repo Cruise?

A “Repo Cruise” involves the repositioning (not reposession) of a cruise ship.  Let’s say it’s been cruising all summer long in Alaska, and now that the season is over, the company owning the vessel wants to send it to the Caribbean for the fall, winter and early spring.  Well, they don’t want to lose money […]

My Favorite Destination- BANGKOK

I’m often asked what my favorite place to visit is.  I always answer this question with a question, viz., “What is the purpose of the trip?”  For excitement; something exotic, but very safe; great food, world famous beaches, deluxe hotels, and a friendly and welcoming people, it’s an easy call — Thailand.  No other place […]

What If the Airline Bumps You?

Why would you get bumped?  Because your flight is overbooked.  Overbooking is the practice of selling more seats than an airline actually has.  They don’t want to have any empty seats, and overbooking insures that every seat will be full even if someone doesn’t show up.  Or, as is more likely, at the last minute, […]

Why Have a Passport and Travel Insurance?

True:  You do not need to have a passport if you are going on a cruise that starts and ends in the  same United States port.  A certified birth certificate will suffice for a roundtrip Seattle cruise to Alaska (even though you’ll be stopping in several Canadian ports), a rountrip Long Beach cruise to the […]

Jamaica – A Caribbean Paradise!

There are generally two different perceptions of Jamaica based on “how you visit” Jamaica. Many people visit Jamaica as a port of call on a cruise ship, while others take a land vacation and stay for a few days.  Most people that visit on a cruise ship sometimes state they would not like to go […]
