Cruising is a great way to see the world and is the best value for your money because the fares include nearly everything you will need for your vacation: food, accommodations, entertainment plus transportation between travel destinations or ports are all included in the price of your cruise.
If you have cruised before you have learned tips and tricks along the way to help make your cruise go smoothly, however, if you are new to cruising, we have a few travel hacks to help you on your cruise vacation.
So, you have booked your cruise and now you need to know if you should stay in a hotel the night before your cruise. Well that really depends. As a rule of thumb, we suggest if you have to fly into your cruise port or you are driving more than 2-3 hours to board the ship, we highly suggest you stay in a hotel near the port. Why? Well life happens! Emergencies can come up with your car (we had a client have a blow out on a tire and had to wait 3 hours for help!), traffic can stop you from arriving on time, or your flight may get delayed; and guess what…..the boat does not wait! So, if you are more than 2-3 hours away from the cruise port or you are flying to your port, we suggest you stay the night in a local hotel near the cruise port before you set sail. You might even want to stay a few days before or stay a few days after your cruise if you have never visited the area your port is in and have 2 vacations in one! We did this in New York when we cruised from NYC to Canada aboard the Disney Magic. It allowed us to see New York for a few days before we set sail being, we had never traveled to NYC before. Whether you stay a few days, or one night before your cruise begins, we have just the place for you to spend the night. As avid cruisers we know where to have you stay and we work closely with you when you allow us to help plan your fabulous vacation, however, today we want to give you some hotels to rest up in before sailing away out of the cruise capital of the world; PortMiami in Miami, Florida.
Going on a vacation with your family is a wonderful and exciting adventure, but first you have to pack. Packing for a family vacation is something that is usually dreaded, mostly because you have to pack for so many people and this means more mess while packing, more squeezing items in and more luggage.

Before your vacation begins is the time to set things in order. One important aspect of your vacation is travel protection insurance.

Traveling means a lot of walking and that means comfortable shoes. But comfortable shoes does not always mean cute or stylish shoes.

I feel they are the best travel shoes for women and I wear them even when I am not traveling....introducing Rothy's!
