There are a LOT of travel deals that will be available for the next few days. If you are looking for a 2023 or 2024 cruise, now is the time to lock in a deal. I understand that cruising is not for everyone. Think of it as an floating hotel, taking you to hard to reach destinations. Cruising is a great way to explore a place and then decide later where you want to go back to explore in depth. Or, take an expedition and actually learn about a place. Expedition spend longer times in port and reach places not easily accessible to the masses. Sail with a team of scientist and naturalist and see the most extreme and remote places on the planet. Big ships vs expedition ships, or Premium luxury vs Mega Ships. There’s a segment for everyone and as a Travel agent, I love to find what’s right for you.
