Top Reasons to purchase a beverage package on Royal Caribbean

2023-11-12T15:30:53-05:00June 17, 2019|Cruising, Royal Caribbean, Travel Destinations|2 Comments

“Is the beverage package worth it?”  That is a question I am frequently asked by clients.  As a traveler, I never purchased one because I didn’t think it was worth the money and would not save me any money.  As a travel agent, I am willing to try everything once, so I can offer well-researched advice.  After booking our most recent cruise, and first on Royal Caribbean, it was time to research! Royal Caribbean offers several drink packages, although we only considered two – the refreshment package and the deluxe beverage package.  Both packages offer fountain sodas, Coca-Cola Freestyle beverages, [...]

I love seeing the looks on my kids’ faces when they get a hug from their favorite Disney characters. Did you know that you can also meet characters on a Disney cruise?

Saratoga Springs with Kids

2023-10-04T17:48:26-04:00December 9, 2016|Disney Travel|0 Comments

In my opinion, there are more pros than cons and what is five more minutes of a drive or bus ride? Here are some reasons why Saratoga Springs is a great place to stay with kids   1.) Pools: There are several pools at Saratoga Springs, but our favorite was the pool in the Paddock section. There is a zero entry pool with a great big waterslide, and our favorite, a separate toddler play area that was totally [...]
