Cruise Pack Mission

I believe that helping others is one of the greatest things that we can do on this earth. I also believe that we can add a little fun to our vacation, by helping someone while out having fun.

One of our newest pages at All-Inclusive Caribbean Cruises seeks to encourage cruisers to brighten a child's life at least for one day. Interested? Click here to read all about it.

Cruise Industry News

Here are two of several things happening in the cruise industry:

1. MSC Orders 4 Large Ships.

In an effort to double its cruising capacity, MSC has ordered 4 new ships. Two of the ships will be able to carry 4,170 passengers at double occupancy, while the other two will carry 4,500 passengers.

Two of the ships will debut in 2017, one in 2018 and the last one in 2019.

2. Norwegian Allows for Earlier Restaurant Reservations.

If you have sailed with Norwegian Cruise Line, then you know that their ships offer several specialty restaurants. These eateries are separate from the formal dining room service that is included in your cruise ticket package.

Whereas Norwegian previously allowed guests interested in eating at their specialty restaurants to reserve seats as early as 45 days prior to sailing, reservations may now be made 100 days in advance.

Check with your Travel Agent for more information.

Plan A Group Cruise

A group cruise is comprised of at least 8 cabins (Carnival Cruises - varies with other cruise lines) with 2 or more passengers.

Group cruise ideas: family reunions, employee appreciation, club or organization fundraiser, girlfriends' getaway, couples' retreat, church outing, etc.

Reasons for planning a group cruise:

1. Cruising with a group is much more fun than cruising alone. I have done both and really prefer sailing with a group. Furthermore, there are perks to be had when cruising as a group.

Plan your group cruise today. Learn more about group cruises here.

**Group Cruise for October 4 - 9

We are excited to invite you to join us on a group cruise to Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands this October. Deposits are now $200/person and are due by June 4th. Final fares start at $413/person.

Find all the details on what promises to be an exciting sailing this fall at: Annual Group Cruise.

Cruise Saving Tip

Here is something everyone loves - learning how to save a buck or two on their cruise vacation.

Tip: Holiday Cruise Sales!

It will cost you more, if you cruise on or around a holiday. However, you could save on a future cruise, if you book that cruise near a holiday.

Like any other industry that offers sales during holidays, cruise lines do the same. If you plan to cruise later this year, wait for July 4th or Labor Day to book. You should save.

Happy cruise saving!
