Archive for 'River Cruising'

Something for everyone – even if you think you’re not the cruise type

So you think that cruising is not for you? Read on and learn about the many choices available for vacationing on the water...

Sample wines from around the world

Cruising is the perfect way to sample wines from around the world.  Here are my recommendations for wine-themed cruises on small ship...

Running the rapids in the Grand Canyon

If you have ever dreamed of seeing the Grand Canyon from the river instead of the rim- you need to know that it is easily do-able. I used to think that reservations had to be made years in advance, but it depends who you call, when you want to travel, and the type of journey.

Trip Report - Amsterdam to Basel

What amazed me was the lush, green landscape... in November!

How private clubs can increase member loyalty

Is your club membership on the slide – or do you have a waiting list? Private clubs are feeling the pressure. Recruiting and retaining members for golf clubs, country clubs, exclusive health clubs and other private clubs has been a major challenge in the last few years. The recessionary economy hasn’t helped, but changing demographics and expectations have changed as well...

What's the difference between cruise ships?

Just like any other kind of lodging, cruise ships come in all shapes and sizes, from basic no-frills accommodations to luxurious yachts. I find it easier to discuss cruising when you think of them in five main categories:  Mainstream, Premium, Luxury, Expedition and River Ship...

The Amazing Amazon

I’ve done it twice. And there are a world of reasons to go again. Traveling deep into rainforest at the headwaters of the Amazon River is an experience of a lifetime! This mighty river begins at the confluence of the Ucayali and Maranon, not far from Iquitos, Peru. But the trip isn’t not just about the moving on the water and seeing the wildlife.

Single Supplements - The Ultimate in Sales Prevention

Traveling solo is beset with extra charges that couples don’t encounter, the greatest being the “single supplement” where singles have to pay for two beds when they only want one. Cruise ships claim they need to be compensated for the losses incurred when they receive only half of the revenue potential of a stateroom. The additional charges can range from 10% to 100% of the standard rate, which means single travelers pay twice the rate as couples!

Why smaller is more satisfying - or why you should go smaller on your next cruise

In an era where cruise ships keep getting bigger and bigger, there is something compelling about “small”. As a travel planner, I encourage clients to move from mega ships to smaller vessels for the most satisfying travel experience.
