I don’t think that I have ever looked forward to a trip as much as I am looking forward to my upcoming Viking river cruise. As I sit here, cup of Earl Grey steaming on my desk, I can’t help but wonder what life on the river will be like. Will I see any of the mythical creatures that supposedly live on the Rhine? What fascinating people will I meet? What secret places will I discover? I’m getting goosebumps just thinking about it!
On the surface, cheap cruises sound like a fantastic idea. After all, who wouldn’t want to experience life on the open sea at a bargain price? Unfortunately, like so many things in life, when it comes to cruises, you often get what you pay for.
What is a senior travel club, anyway? A scam? A great way to save on travel? A way to meet potential travel companions? Or something else entirely?
It turns out that senior travel clubs can be any of these things.
What would an internationally recognized cruise expert say if you asked her what to pack for a cruise? If you are like me, you might expect such an expert’s advice to be long and complicated, filled with clever little devices and secret clothing items.
What’s the worst part of cruising alone? If you said, “the single supplement,” you’re not alone. When I speak with the solo travelers in our community, this additional cost comes up again and again. It’s not just that we hate paying more money – it feels like there is something deeply unfair about penalizing single travelers.
When you think about cruising, what images pop into your mind? Do you dream of crystal clear waters and gentle salt breezes? Or, do you imagine arriving in exotic ports and sampling local cuisine at a leisurely pace?
In terms of travel, the last few months have been incredible for me. First, I had the opportunity to join Road Scholar on a trip to Prague. On this adventure, I learned just how fun group travel can be.
