Make Your Rental Car Theft-Proof

Posted by sunluva7 , Mar 22 2016 - - - - - - · 301 views

Make Your Rental Car Theft-Proof Nothing says "tourist" like a rental car full of cameras, luggage, maps and tour books. Would-be thieves, in fact, can spot a tourist and his rental from a mile away. Here are a few tips to prevent you and your rental becoming a victim of theft:

- Don't have anything of value in plain sight while occupying the car, and definitely hide any valuables in th...


Use Your Cell Phone's Camera to Create a Visual Reminder of "All-Aboard" Time in Port

Posted by sunluva7 , Mar 15 2016 - - - - - - · 346 views

Use Your Cell Phone's Camera to Create a Visual Reminder of "All-Aboard" Time in Port To avoid missing the boat in port, snap a photo of the "All-Aboard Time" before stepping off the ship to see the sights. It's a great visual reminder for the younger, care-free members of your party venturing out on their own. Plus, if you have a few too many shots in the local watering hole, you can refer to your cell phone camera if your brain becomes t...

Should that stop you from booking a Caribbean or New England cruise in late summer or fall? No, and here’s why.
Caribbean cru...


For a Quieter Cruising Experience, Cruise Off-Season

Posted by sunluva7 , Jun 16 2015 - - - - - - · 1,544 views

For a Quieter Cruising Experience, Cruise Off-Season If your vacation time is flexible, consider yourself fortunate. You have the ability to choose to cruise when prices are lower and cruise ships are generally quieter. There will be far fewer children to compete with, and ship activities will be more enjoyable. In the Caribbean, for instance, the highest prices and larger crowds occur during mid summer, sc...

Posted by sunluva7 , May 05 2015 - - - - - - · 2,557 views

Research Your Ports of Call in Advance Your cruise ship will be visiting some exciting destinations, and it would be a terrible waste if you didn’t experience at least one of the best features about the island or city you’re docked at for a day or a few hours.
I’ve talked to some cruisers who just prefer to “wing it” – disembark and just stroll arou...


How to Avoid Cruise and Travel Scams

Posted by sunluva7 , Mar 03 2015 - - - - - - · 2,944 views

How to Avoid Cruise and Travel Scams If you’re skeptical about a postcard you received in the mail or phone call offering a free cruise or vacation, you have every right to be.  While some are legitimate, many are not. At the very least, they will ask you to attend a high-pressure sales pitch for a product or ask for a substantial sum of money up front, presumably for taxes, fees,...

Before embarking on your next land or sea vacation, load a weather app to your smartphone or favorite electronic device. Set the app's preferences for each place you're visiting on your itinerary, whip out your smartphone and have a day, weekend or week's worth of weather forecasts at your fingertips. There are several good apps for weather, but my favori...


Don't Choose a Cabin Just Because It's the Cheapest

Posted by sunluva7 , Dec 09 2014 - - - - - - · 2,712 views

Don't Choose a Cabin Just Because It's the Cheapest Agents and cruise lines love to promote their cruises, and their ads will boldly display a particular sailing with a "starting at" price - $199/pp, for instance. What you don't see until you investigate a little further is that the $199 cabin is the lead-in price, or the price of the cabin at the lowest category, which tend to be the l...
