Carnival Victory Fall Cruise Getaway

In the first week of October I led a group of people to Ocho Rios, Jamaica and Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands on a 5-day Carnival Victory cruise.

Cruise Industry News

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

1. Oasis of the Seas Upgraded

In addition to the fact that it is one of the two largest cruise ships on the seas, Oasis of the Seas has been upgraded.

The ship recently came out of dry-dock, fitted with some things you will love. These include: 1. Dynamic Dining (Guests are longer assigned to one of two main dining rooms, but are now allowed to choose from several different places to eat); 2. new places to shop such as Michael Kors and Britto Art Gallery; and, 3. high speed Internet at sea for streaming movies, music and surfing social network.

This is undeniably sweet! Go enjoy Oasis of the Seas!

2. Holland America Keeps Dancing With the Stars.

Guests on Holland America's 15 ships will continue to be treated with an offering of Dancing With the Stars (DWTS). In addition to getting lessons in some dances seen on the show and meeting some of the stars, guests will be invited to participate in a DWTS competition.

Can you dance? Get ready to learn how to and beat other guests in a dancing competition.

Plan A Group Cruise

A group cruise is generally comprised of at least 8 cabins (number varies by cruise lines), each with 2 or more passengers.

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

Cruise Saving Tip

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

Tip: Work with a Travel Professional to Find Available Cruise Deals!

It is a fact that whenever cruise lines get ready to promote new deals they send the information to travel professionals first. This group is heavily depended on to bring in new customers and so they are the first to know what deals are coming.

Whenever you are ready to book a cruise, you may not be aware of all the current promotions. However, if there is one that will save you some money your Travel Agent will know about it. Contact a travel professional before booking and save some money.

Happy savings!
