You could be here - 2 hours to Bermuda

Posted by on in Vacation Packages

You’re not in London – it just sounds that way!  You’ll see bobbies on the street and a pub on the corner.  But in this part of the world you’ll also find pink sand beaches.  Visit Bermuda by air or by sea.  It’s only a two hour flight from Boston’s Logan International Airport, while cruise lines such as NCL, Royal Caribbean and Celebrity have a port of call at King’s Wharf.  The island boasts pristine golf courses and spectacular views.  Stroll the streets of downtown Hamilton for fine shopping while enjoying the charming architecture.  Take a ferry to St. George and swim with the dolphins at the Dockyard.   This is a destination to which I’ve returned many times.

Aruba

Posted by on in All Inclusives Vacations

It’s been described as “Arizona with a beach.”  And these are among the best beaches of the world.  Riu and Occidental and the popular Divi offer the convenience of an all-inclusive resort and great location. The local cuisine is world-class.  Aruba is reknowned for its El Gaucho Argentinian steaks and fresh seafood.    Looking for a thrill?  Fly over the ocean on a Jetlev – has to be seen to be believed!

ROYAL CARIBBEAN’S “ALLURE”

Posted by on in Cruises

 

Redefining cruising, this ‘megaship’ is a destination unto itself.  Ride the Carousel on the Boardwalk.  Zipline over the decks.  Pickup a game of basketball or take in a round of minigolf.  Challenge yourself on the rock climbing wall.  Visit Central Park for a roast beef deli sandwich.  Marvel at the shows at the Aqua Theatre.  Go ice skating at sea.  Master the Flowrider.  Lounge by the pool.  Indulge in the spa and solarium.  Watch the Dreamworks’ parade with Shrek, Puss in Boats, and their friends, or attend a character breakfast.  Play in the casino.  Visit the Champagne Bar.  Take in a live performance of “Chicago.”  Shop in the Coach Store.  Truly something for all ages.

Mexico

Posted by on in Vacation Packages

When considering destinations for your next trip, don’t overlook our neighbor to the south.  Looking for party central?  Choose the great nightlife of Cancun.  Spend your days exploring the ruins of Chichen Itza or Tulum, or take an excursion to the island of Cozumel.  Browse the shops for great bargains on silver and other handcrafted items.   You’ll enjoy the warm hospitality of the people, marvel at the beaches, and indulge in great food.  Among the top resorts of the area, I highly recommend the Iberostar – they offer multiple sister properties with sharing privileges, outstanding cuisine, and beautiful pools.  As an all-inclusive it offers  ‘one stop shopping’: pay once, no additional costs or charges, no money out of your pocket when you get there.
