Caribbean Travel Cruise

Caribbean Travel Cruise

One of the most beloved features of the Caribbean islands is the idyllic weather.
Rain or shine in some other part of the world, you can expect to have the perfect weather here. That’s because a whole range of climate is afforded you – from the striking deserts of Aruba to the misty jungles of Dominica, from balmy breezes to soothing sunshine, and everything in between. And the best way to enjoy the Caribbean’s lovely weather is to go on a Caribbean travel cruise.

Sure, you can always take a plane ride to the Caribbean. That’s the quickest and probably the cheapest way to get to your island destination. But if you want to combine transportation with leisure views of the islands from the ocean, then a Caribbean travel cruise is best. Indeed, there’s no better way to enjoy an island paradise than from the deck of a luxury line cruise ship.

If you agree, then you’re amongst crowds. Approximately two million travelers take Caribbean travel cruises each year to enjoy the beautiful beaches and warm weather. Caribbean travel cruises are popular because of the activities and amenities available on board the ship. In addition, many of these ships make stops at various islands along the way, giving you a chance to enjoy several aspects of the islands all for the price of one.

If you decide to take a Caribbean travel cruise, plan ahead. There are many factors that you ought to consider, not least of which is price. Admittedly, Caribbean travel cruises are a bit on the expensive side compared with all-inclusives and other packages. But if you plan well, there’s no reason why you can’t get a good deal with your Caribbean travel cruise.

Depending on the season, cabins may get fully booked months before the Caribbean travel cruise is scheduled to depart. So if you want to make it your chosen cruise, book early by calling the cruise line or making an online reservation. Or if you want, you can also work out the details of your own Caribbean travel cruise through an online or in-person travel agent.

Always keep in mind your vacationing goals. For instance, if you’re taking a Caribbean travel cruise with your kids, stick to the Disney cruise because if anything, this is guaranteed to have activities designed specifically for children. If you’re traveling as a couple, then look for one of those romance-themed cruises that provide you with a quiet atmosphere, like the Princess cruise for instance, the line used by the Love Boat TV show. On the other hand, if you want to sail on board the most luxurious ships, then look to liners known for their top notch Caribbean travel cruise services, such as Crystal, Silversea, or the new Queen Mary II.

There are many ocean liners offering Caribbean travel cruises. Each of them offers a variety of price, schedule and island stop options. Whether you seek an extravagant vacation aboard a floating luxury hotel, a romantic getaway with your loved one, or an activity-filled family voyage, just choose your dream ship and you’re all set.

Take A Cruise: Have Your Dream Wedding On Board A Luxury Cruise Liner

Take A Cruise: Have Your Dream Wedding On Board A Luxury Cruise Liner

Weddings can be both the most exciting and stressful times of a person’s life. Sure it is certainly fun to design wedding invitations, plan your reception and pick colors for your ceremony and bridesmaid’s dresses. On the flip side, the woes of budgeting for a wedding, hiring a minister, hiring a caterer, and securing entertainment can be just as stressful as the fun parts can be enjoyable.

For those who are trying to produce a wedding, a wedding reception, and a honeymoon on a limited budget, there may be one option that you have not yet explored. Getting married on board a cruise ship is a classy yet relatively inexpensive option for your wedding. Most cruise lines carry their very own wedding planner who can put together an entire wedding, minister (or the cruise ship version of one) reception, catering, and all. Wedding planners, even for small weddings, can cost upwards of a few thousand dollars but you can secure a low cost, thoughtful and memorable wedding on board a luxury cruise liner for less than a thousand dollars if you are lucky. This is on top of the costs of traveling on the ship for the duration of the cruise as well. Of course this is not the most extravagant wedding, and obviously you get what you pay for so the more money you put into your luxury cruise liner wedding, the fancier it will turn out to be.

Realistically, you would not expect all 50 to 100 of your wedding guests to shell out thousands of dollars just to sail around the world with you and your loved one to celebrate your wedding with you, and of course the cruise lines do not expect that either. Many lines will allow your guests to come on board for your wedding and reception for a couple of hours. The liner company may choose for themselves or give you the option of having your wedding on a docked ship and never have the cruise liner leave the area, or to sail around the port for the duration of the wedding. Most times the ship will never even leave the port during the wedding, as this can cause problems with marriage licenses when it comes to what may or may not be United States or international waters.

There are plenty of cruise lines that will give you a quality, fun wedding that will be truly memorable for you and your loved one. Carnival Cruises, Princess Cruises, and the Disney Cruise line offer fun, romantic wedding packages at prices that really are hard to beat, especially when compared to the combined price of a wedding, reception, and honeymoon done the more traditional way. Princess Cruises even offer wedding packages that pamper the bride and groom prior to the wedding, and add little touches like stringed instruments, flowers, and candles to create a ceremony that you, your loved one, and your guests will always look back on fondly.

Take a Spin on a Watermouse Boat. Rent one of these two-seater mini-power boats and zip around one of Disney’s lakes at 22 miles per hour.

Available at the Contemporary, Polynesian, Grand Floridian, the Yacht and Beach Club, Downtown Disney, and the Wilderness Lodge. Approximately $22 per half-hour.
Dive into One of Disney’s Fabulous Themed Pools. You can’t do much better than a dip in one of Disney’s wonderful swimming pools.

Search for Buried Treasure on a Pirate’s Cruise. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, children ages 3-10 sail from the dock of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort on a 2-hour supervised trip to a deserted island. $28 fee includes snacks, bandanas, and treasure. Call 407-WDW-DINE for reservations.
Attend a Children’s Tea Party. A “Wonderland Tea Party” happens Mon-Fri at 1:30 P.M. in 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort.

Take in a Character Meal. These extremely popular dining opportunities, offered at both the Disney theme parks and resort hotels, are a perfect way for your children to spend extra time with favorite Disney characters. Meals are offered in three ways depending on the restaurant: buffet-style, family-style, or pre-plated meals; regardless, it’s essentially all-you-can-eat. Characters work the room, stopping at each table to interact with guests, pose for photos, and sign autographs. Book priority seating early, particularly for Cinderella’s Royal Table, Epcot’s Princess Breakfast in Norway, and Chef Mickey’s by calling 407-WDW-DINE.

The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort

The Hong Kong Disneyland Resort


On September 12, 2005, the newest member of the Disneyland family of theme parks and resorts opened to the public.
Hong Kong Disneyland is located on the island of Lantau, positioned to look out over Penny’s Bay and the Chinese Sea. Started as a joint operation between The Walt Disney Company and the Hong Kong SAR government, Hong Kong Disneyland brings the magic of Disney to a whole new environment, respecting the aspects of the culture of the country where it makes its home. The park boasts 2 glamorous hotels, the Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel.

Hong Kong Disneyland has some of the attractions that will be familiar to visitors of Disney’s other parks. Main Street looks like a piece of Americana transplanted, with the Hong Kong Disneyland Railroad for a trip around the park. There’s also Adventureland, with the exciting Jungle River Cruise and all of the animal sights and sounds. Tarzan has made his home in Adventureland, where guests can take a ride on a raft to cross to Tarzan Island where they can visit Tarzan’s Tree House. For those who love the movie The Lion King, there is a musical performance based on the story as well – The Festival of the Lion King.

In the original Disneyland, Fantasyland is well known for the symbol that people think of when speaking of Disney – Cinderella’s Castle. Hong Kong Disneyland’s version is the castle of Sleeping Beauty, where children can explore the fairy tale and their own imagination. They can also visit the grotto of another Disney princess, Snow White. Cinderella is there too, represented by a beautiful carousel ride. There’s everyone’s favorite bear at The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh ride. More popular Disney rides include the Mad Hatter Tea Cups and Dumbo the Flying Elephant. Children and grown-ups can watch a 3-D movie with all the favorite Disney characters at Mickey’s PhilharMagic or The Golden Mickeys at Disney’s Storybook Theater.

The fourth area, Tommorrowland, gives visitors a Disney vision of the future. The three main attractions include 2 of the fastest most exciting rides in the park. Space Mountain is a literally rocketing rollercoaster. Orbitron lets you pilot your own jet through the sky of whirling planets. You can also play a cosmic game of Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters with the whole family. In 2006 guests will have a new adventure to enjoy. Autopia will have visitors driving futuristic electric cars around a track meant to envision the roads of tomorrow.

Visitors can choose to stay inside the park at one of the two beautiful new hotels. The Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is designed to take you back in time to the grandness of the Victorian era. The European influence is obvious in the 400 luxuriously appointed rooms. Guests can enjoy spa services at the hotel as well. At Disney’s Hollywood Hotel, the 600 guest rooms are decorated in an art deco style, meant to bring back the allure of the golden age of Hollywood.

Although the park exposes local visitors to traditions and exhibits from the Western world, local culture is honored as well. At the opening ceremonies children sang in English, Cantonese and Putonghua. The Hong Kong Children’s Choir was followed by other local traditional performances such as Chinese acrobats and dancers performing a Lion Dance. The ceremonies were attended by members of the local government as well as representatives from Disneyland theme parks in other countries. The culture of the Hong Kong region is also reflected in the cuisine served throughout the park. Yes, guests can find food that is more often served in the West, but also local dishes that they’ll enjoy as well.

Holiday Vacations with a Theme

Holiday Vacations with a Theme

Themed holiday vacations are a fun idea to plan for your family. One of our most memorable vacations was our “Cowboy and Indian” vacation. We took our sons through the West, stopping at tourist sites along the way. We stopped at Dodge City to explore the cowboy side of life, and then made our way to Southern Colorado to explore the ancient ruins of the cliff dwelling Pueblo Indians. It is hard to choose only four family fun options, but I chose those I thought my grandkids would enjoy the most.

Of course, the first one should be the Disney themed holiday vacation. Who can resist the thought of being in Florida during the cold days of winter and enjoying the sites and sounds of Disney World? This is a constant favorite of children and adults alike. There are so many attractions and sites; it will be hard to decide which one to visit first. You have the Magic Kingdom, Epcot Center, Universal Studios, MGM studios and Disney even has its own cruise line. The cruise liner has all the Disney characters on board so it will be a themed vacation. Disney World is not the only attraction in the area; the Kennedy Space Center is nearby as is Sea World. Sea World is a wonderful attraction with special shows. Inside Disney World, you can stay in a hotel that has a monorail train to take you to all the attractions.

Are you thinking of a winter holiday vacation in sunny Southern California? You will find many attractions and they are easily worked in around your available time. The San Diego Zoo is a popular attraction with adults and children as well as Sea World. LegoLand is also found in the San Diego area and is a big hit with the little ones. If you’re looking for theme parks, go north just up the road to the Anaheim and Los Angeles area. There you will find Disneyland, Six Flags Magic Mountain, Universal Studio, and California Adventure Theme Park. After taking in what sites and attractions you wanted to see, take a day or two to just relax and soak up the sun on the many beautiful beaches on the coast of Southern California. Drive a little further north up the coast and visit historic San Simeon and the beautiful city of Carmel. Take a tour around the area on the 17-mile drive in Monterey California and stop for a moment just to see the beauty of Pebble Beach Golf Course. There is something for everyone in the sunny state of California.

One of the best themed family vacations we had was our historical trip to the East Coast. We wanted our sons to be immersed in the colorful history of our Country. We had some fun times, stopping in Hershey Pennsylvania. We visited Hershey Town and stood amazed at the light poles in the shape of candy kisses. We visited historic sites in Virginia, visited George Washington’s home, and sat on the same veranda he sat on to watch the river go by. It was awesome, and in Virginia, southern hospitality shines through. It’s a pleasure to visit there. Then on to our most important goal, Washington D.C. We took the time to picnic on the mall, went up the Washington Monument, visited all the Presidential Memorials, and even took a tour of the White House. Being a history buff and patriotic, the highlight of my son’s trip was our visit to the sacred land of Arlington Cemetery. It is fitting that he grew up and is serving in the military. The Smithsonian is an experience that no one should miss. There are so many different buildings and sections in the buildings that it is hard to take it all in. We spent one whole day in just one building and then found out we had missed the hall of the First Ladies. This was something I was interested in, so we went back the next day and found the section that we missed before we went on to other areas. It’s a memorable family vacation and can instill in your child a real love and patriotism for their country.

National Parks and Monuments is another wonderful themed vacation the whole family will enjoy. Those “must see” attractions could include Yellowstone National Park to see Old Faithful go off, or a trip to the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. The Grand Canyon is a natural wonder that everyone should see at least once in his or her lifetime. Believe me, your children don’t have to teenagers to enjoy their themed vacations and have their memories to last for a lifetime.

Florida – the ideal holiday destination for the whole family!

Still wondering why Florida is one of the best holiday destinations for the entire family? Just go through all that America’s ‘Sunshine State’ has to offer and you’ll understand.

Starting with its climate so warm and continuing with its clear blue water and tropical coral islands, going through the nature reserves, world-famous beaches to theme parks and the Kennedy Space Centre, Florida offers entertain to the whole family.
Orlando became one of the top vacation destinations in all of the United States since 1971 when Disney Land opened its gates. This entertainment mecca is world-famous as the home of Disney World®, but even without Disney, Orlando would be a magical kingdom. SeaWorld, Cypress Gardens, and Universal Studios are just a few of the attractions. Orlando, naturally blessed with a climate that is rivalled only by the temperate conditions of southern California is proud of the Walt Disney Resort that spans more than 47 miles and is home not just to one, but to several Disney Resorts.

The family of Disney Resorts that collectively make up Orlando’s Walt Disney World include the Magic Kingdom, the Epcot Center, the Disney-MGM Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. At the Magic Kingdom Resort, it’s the famous members of the Disney movie family that are center stage. This park’s famous attractions are “It’s a Small World”, “Peter Pan’s Flight”, the “Cinderella Castle”, the most recognizable of Disney’s icons, the Jungle Cruise” and “the Magic Carpets of Aladdin”. Universal Studios is a place where you can live out your dreams of being a film star, is a combination of working movie studio and theme park. Sea World’s Wild Artic will lead you through the world of polar bears and beluga whales. Disney-MGM Studios’ Twilight Zone includes a 13-storey plunge in the Tower of Terror.

Science and the spirit of exploration are the name of the game at Disney’s Epcot Center. Popular attractions here include: “Mission Space”, “Test Track”, and “Turtle Talk with Crush”. This is a great place to take the kids in order to fuel their interest and childlike curiosity for the mysteries of science.

A holiday in Orlando is something special for a variety of reasons not only the surrounding theme parks. Orlando is dominated by Lake Eola and is an excellent centre for shopping and eating. The trendy boutiques of Thorton Park, antique shops on Orange Avenue, 150 challenging golf courses within a 45-minute drive, and plenty of nightlife prove Orlando caters to grownups, too. The most famous downtown icon is Church Street Station, a collection of restaurants, bars and shops which really comes alive at night as the air cools and the music bars get going. The Orlando Science Center and the Orlando Museum of Art will provide you findings about Mayan civilisation.

If you want to discover the ‘Real Florida’ go to Ocala National Forest, a delightful nature reserve with several natural springs and lakes, and fantastic hiking, canoeing, fishing and swimming or visit the Blue Spring State Park which, for hundreds of years, was home to the Timucuan Indians. You shouldn’t miss the manatee’s home at the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge where migrating birds stop on their way to and from South America.

Palm Beach and Miami Beach are probably the most famous beaches on the Atlantic ‘Gold’ Coast. The golden beaches, warm and clear sea, the fine sand sea is are making this area of coastline ideal for children. The atmosphere on the streets, the food, the music and the spirit in Miami are vivid due to the Hispanic population. The Art Deco Historic District, a collection of bright pink, lavender and turquoise buildings dating from the 1920s, is one of the most spectacular parts of town.

The second busiest cruise port in the world is situated in Brevard County, Florida at Port Canaveral

Commercial shipping began in 1955 and cruise liners have used the docks from 1964. Some of the most well known cruise companies’ liners pass through Port Canaveral, including Disney, Royal Caribbean International, Carnival and the Norwegian Cruise Line. The dock has six cruise terminals and the port is also home to the SunCruz Casinos and Sterling Casinos casino ships. The port has a good working relationship with NASA at the nearby John F.Kennedy Space Center. The port allows rocket boosters to pass through and the external tanks from the Space Shuttle are also brought through for each shuttle mission.

There are lots of plans for the future to expand Port Canaveral even further, including the construction of another cruise terminal. The cruise industry is going through a boom time and the port wants extra capacity. The port’s channel will be widened and a fuel tank depot is to be constructed with a pipeline link to Orlando International Airport.

From 1983 until 2005, the SeaFest Annual Seafood festival was a highlight of the area’s social calendar. It featured live music and gave local artists an opportunity to show their work. Seafood took center stage of course and the last festival included a chowder cook off competition. In 2006, the festival was re-named SpringFest and moved to the Space Coast Stadium in Viera, Florida.

There are many cruises to choose from with different time scales and destinations. Three, four and seven day cruises go to the Eastern Caribbean, the Bahamas and the Mexican Gulf. Two casino ships go out to sea from Port Canaveral for five or six hour journeys and passengers enjoy casino games, slot machines and live entertainment. There are buffet meals and a nightclub too.

The port area contains three public parks with various amenities, including a beach, camp sites, fishing pier and boat launch ramps. Fishing enthusiasts can get supplies at the tackle and bait shop and there is a great view of Port Canaveral from the observation towers. Visitors get the chance to see local wildlife, including manatees, turtles, right whales and various species of birds.

Tokyo Disney

Tokyo Disney


Strategically nestled in Urayasu in Chiba, Tokyo Disney Resort was the first ever to be constructed outside the territories of the United States.
Opened its doors on April 15, 1983, this famous theme park was built through the efforts of Walt Disney Imagineering which takes on a similar design as that of in California and Florida. At this juncture, this favorite tourist destination is managed by The Oriental Land Company.

The Tokyo Disney Resort is composed of DisneyLand and DisneySea. All over the huge estate, there are seven major divisions you should not fail to miss namely Mickey’s Toontown, Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, World Bazaar, Westernland, Adventureland and Critter Country.

Mickey’s Toontown is in Tokyo Disney Resort where you will more than catch a glimpse of Chip N’ Dale’s Treehouse, Donald Duck’s Boat, Gadget’s Go Coaster, Goofy’s Bounce House, Jolly Trolley, Mickey’s House, Minnie’s House, Roger Rabbit’s Car Toon Spin and Toon Park. You will also be able to encounter the TNT barrel located right in front of the Fastpass machines and doors on the sidewalk that will allow you to enter in.

Tomorrowland is where you will see before your very eyes the Astro Orbiter, Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain, Stitch’s Great Escape, Indy Speedway, Transit Authority, Carousel of Progress, Galaxy Palace Theater, Micro Adventure, Grand Circuit Raceway, Showbase and Laugh Floor Comedy Club. You will also be able to encounter rides that are showcased in a more advanced technology setting.

Adventureland is where you will experience the Le Cabane Des Robinson, Jungle Cruise, Western River Railroad, Enchanted Tiki Room, Pirates of the Caribbean, Tarzan’s Treehouse, Adventure Isle, Indiana Jones, Temple of Peril and Le Passage Enchanted Aladdin. You will also be able to encounter what has been regarded as a revolutionary fascination, the simulator on a track that was brought out of conception since 1983.

Critter Country is in Tokyo Disney Resort that will let you behold the Country Bear Jamboree, Splash Mountain, Davy Crockett’s Explorer Canoes and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh Bear. You will also be able to encounter an Indian Village that was highlighted in a lot of shows in Native America. However in 1972, there were changes and took on the motif of the forests in the Pacific Northwest.

Even with the fact that Tokyo Disney Resort is in Japan, this famous theme park is very much “Americanized.” All that your sight will land are plainly a reflection what can be witnessed in other counterparts of this favorite tourist destination in a global scale.

So, are you ready to feel the magic the Asian way?
