The enchanting islands of the Caribbean offer every opportunity to slow down your days or spice them up completely. What you do with your vacation is up to you — because a Caribbean cruise vacation is one of the few places on earth where completely unwinding and living it up play so well together.

With each stop in the sun-soaked islands, you'll quickly surrender your senses to laid — back rhythms. You can unwind on a pristine beach, savor a fresh fruit smoothie at a waterside café, or spend an afternoon in the embrace of a handmade hammock in the shade of palm trees.

Did You Know?

Most cruise lines do not allow travel agents to advertise prices lower than the cruise lines offer to those who book directly with the cruise line. However, some do allow travel agencies to discount by rebating part of the commissions, when dealing directly with a potential customer. If you are shopping the Internet for cruise prices, you're most likely going to find many travel sites quoting the same price. But, the price you're seeing on a travel agent's web site is not necessarily the best price that travel agency is able to offer you. To find out a travel agency's best price on a particular cruise, you should call them, or  e-mail them a request for a price quote. Most travel agencies have toll-free phone numbers. Don't hesitate to call or email them-- you could save a lot!

Contrary to popular belief, cruising isn’t just a woman’s vacation. Look past the Lido Deck and the umbrella drinks, and you’ll find that some cruises offer plenty of opportunities to celebrate such traditionally male pursuits as golf, basketball, fishing, and of course round-the-clock dining. It’s no secret that men like some adventure on vacation and a number of cruise lines offer shore excursions that don’t leave the testosterone at the dock. There are hiking, zip-lining, mountain biking, SCUBA, kayaking, river rafting, race car driving, and dune buggy adventures, just to name a few. Learn More

"We just returned from our Princess South America cruise, and are now recovering from an excess of fun and good times ! We wanted to thank you for all the work you did to ensure a flawless cruise.

"We arrived back early am on Sunday morning from our 2 week adventure in Alaska. It was a spectacular trip and Bernie, Tom and I had a great time on both portions of the tour! Certainly the highlights for me on the land portion was the Wilderness Tour of Denali National Park, although it was affected by rain nevertheless we got the chance to see all the major animals particularly the Moose right along the train tracks & a Black Bear Mother with her two cubs having fun wrestling with each other. Another major highlight of the land tour was the clear view of Mt. McKinley for our 2 1/2/ day visit there. I cancelled one excursion in order to take a fight up to the mountain with simply marvelous views of the Denali itself and the mountain ranges darting out from it. We also experienced a wealth of information about the native history & heritage of the ancient tribes as well as witnessing the winter challenges and joys of life in general on the frontier. On a whale excursion taken while we were cruising we witnessed humpback whales right next to our ship as well as nesting eagles on an isolated point just a hundred yards or so from the boat. The Diamond Princess exceeded all of our expectations and Tom & Bernie were suitably impressed for their first cruise experience provided by Princess. Raye, thank you so much for all your knowledgeable advice, timely reminders, patience and support in the planning & decision-making process for the entire trip. The entire experience ranks among the very best vacations that any of us have taken. Wishing you the best this summer and with deep gratitude for everything,

Rev. John M. O'Neill - July 2013

"Thank you also for the bottle of wine. We appreciate your thoughtfulness. I am glad that Nandu put us in touch with you, and we look forward to working with you in the not too distant future."
Thanks again, Mr. & Mrs Tamhane February 2013

"The weather this week was incredible, 70 and sunny. Never saw a bit of rain...but, lots of whales, eagles, porpoise, bear, moose etc."  Cameracraftsmen of America  Star Princess - 90 Guests

"Raye & Marty... Working with you two has been a delight. You both did not just book cruise fares... You looked after all the details just like a shepherd and his sheep. You double checked with everyone to make sure documents and boarding passes and all manner of things were looked after. Thanks so much and we look forward to working with you both again".  - Don MacGregor
