    Cruise vacations offer a number of advantages over land alternatives. A snappy internet connection is not one of them. When making a direct comparison between land vacation options where hard-wired Internet access is available for a modest fee, cruise ships have always fallen short, until now. As Royal Caribbean International continues revealing the unique features of their new ...

    Sailing with Viking River Cruises, we stopped by a number of ports on an itinerary themed “Portraits Of Southern France. Exploring many of the places that inspired a number of renowned artists, we sailed from Avignon north to Lyon in nearly perfect weather, just right for a relaxing summer cruise. Along the way, we traveled in comfort, unpacking just once and seeing 8 different places in one week. Different than ...

    On ocean cruises, shore excursions are usually a set-in-stone experience, pre-planned and approved by the cruise line to insure quality time ashore.

One of the ...

    I suppose that no matter how we travel, even if we hate the process of learning in general, the odds are that we will still learn something. Take up camping and along with the ability to do it well comes skills like building a fire, shoes to wear hiking, cooking without the conveniences of home and more.

    As travel gear goes, there are plenty of places to find helpful suggestions on what to bring along on any given trip. Friends might suggest a must-bring item.

    Sailing on the rivers of Europe in the Summer brings cruise travelers up close to iconic destinations, many of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Often stopping in the city center of major Euro destinations and small towns along the way, Summer is a great time of the year to just walk off the ship. Ashore we find festivals and events both ongoing and seasonal that can make for great travel ...
