Now is the time to travel. Times are
definitely tough, but the economy will
improve and once it starts rebounding you can
be assured that prices will increase for all
With cruise lines offering up to over 65% off
over last years rates, air flight becoming
more competitive as more airlines enter
existing markets, the dollar gaining value on
the Euro, and hotels offering unprecedented
savings it makes sense to go on that long
awaited dream vacation.
We foresee that discounts will apply to 2010
travel as well. Again, some of the biggest
savings are on luxury cruise lines where you
can often find 2 for 1 Fares PLUS Free air
PLUS Shipboard credits. Another market with
spectacular savings is Australia's air market
- this is due to the influx of new
competition and price wars. And then
depending on when you travel resorts/hotels
worldwide are offering massive discounts.
Now don't expect the best "value" for high
seasons which will cover the summer months,
major holidays - but for the rest of the year
you should be able to score super deals!
Give us a call, I am sure we will be able to
help you ascertain the best value for your

"Why should I use a travel agent?" With all
the different options available online
nowadays what is the advantage of using a
While there are many reasons to visit the
"Big Island" of Hawai'i, none are bigger than
the opportunity to get a close up look at
Kilauea, the world's most active volcano.
Much to my delight, it has been acting up
again and sending lava steaming into the
ocean. One of the real highlights of my
travels (I tend to like adventure travel) has
been to hike down to the actual lava flows
and stand so close that I could have stepped
into the boiling lava. Witnessing Kilauea's
molten lava flows, curling steam clouds, vast
lava fields, heated steam vents, sulfur
banks, prehistoric lava tubes and huge summit
caldera is an unforgettable experience.
|The Royal Mai Tai
Lately I have been spending a lot of time
poolside. The heat wave which has affected
Northern California has turned my office into
the pool (well at least I look at the pool a
lot from the confines of my desk!). But when
I am done working, and actually slide into
the refreshing water it is nice to unwind
with a refreshing drink. I came across this
recipe in the Hawaii Magazine, it is the Mai
Tai recipe from the Royal Hawaiian - one of
the most nostalgic hotels in all of Hawaii.
|Featured Property - Mauna Kea Beach Hotel
The world-renowned hotel is located on
beautiful Kauna'oa Bay, considered by many to
be the island's single most picturesque
beach. Crescent-shaped with pure white sands
and shimmering aqua waters, it is perfect for
water activities including swimming,
snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing, kayaking,
catamaran riding, whale watching and deep-sea
Even at night, guests step onto a circular
lava outcropping overlooking the Bay, to
watch the manta rays swim beneath.
With proper planning, shore excursions
can be a highlight of your next cruise
adventure. Below I've listed some important
information for you to consider when
scheduling shore excursions.
Book the tours that you can't do on your own.
If you look at a map of where you'll be going
and you see that the dolphin swim tour is
conducted about two miles from the ship, then
you may decide to hop in a taxi from the pier
and go over yourself. If you know ahead of
time where you want to go, then get a taxi
for the day or grab a tour from an operator
on the pier, or rent scooters and take off on
your own, at your own pace. Tours can be less
expensive that way.
