It’s Flashback Friday! I hope you will have family vacation memories to share too!

Happy Friday! One of my hopes to-do on this Friday is to continue encouraging parents to make sure that you plan to travel with your kids too if you can!  On this Flashback Friday I am remembering Florida family vacations.  Orlando has so much to offer a family to experience and enjoy together.  So much has changed and evolved there since my last visit so I know that I’ll need to get back to see all the new expansions soon.

It’s not too late to book your 2017 family getaway if you haven’t done so already! It’s also not too early to begin planning for your 2018 vacation either!

I was a newbie Travel Agent back in 1986! This was my 2nd trip to Disney World when I took my oldest daughter and my niece to visit the Mickey Mouse neighborhood, 30 years ago!

Mid-East Coast Cruisers have easier access to Carnival’s Fun ships thanks to Norfolk, Va.

Carnival cancels 2-night “Cruise-to-Nowhere” sailings creating a spiral effect of cancelled itineraries on other cruises for 2016!
Many Travel Professionals (including me) jumped into 1st gear yesterday as we worked to search, find and rebook our existing booked clients on other available Carnival sailings!

I’m not sure of all the particulars but apparentley, beginning in 2016, foreign-flagged cruise ships will no longer be able to sail itineraries that do not stop at a foreign port when departing from a U.S. port. Carnival Cruise Lines is acting in accordance with these new U.S. Laws and Regulations as it pertains to their recent itinerary cancellations and changes.
Welcome to the world of Cruise and Travel 2015!

I had the pleasure of attending one of Carnival Cruise Line’s luncheon and ship inspection gatherings held for Travel Professional’s a couple of weeks ago in Norfolk, Virgina. Here are a few highlights:

Half Moone Cruise Port Norfolk

Saturday, May 16, 2015: Carnival Splendor cruise ship, just recently docked, awaited our arrival as she was being prepped to return to sea at 5pm on a short, 2-night “Cruise to Nowhere”.  Our Carnival Cruise Line sales team had a set agenda and itinerary for us to follow with an anticipated start at 11am with cabin inspections, followed by lunch at 1pm and conclude by 3:30pm.  Well as things happen in life, the schedule got blown off track early on during our embarkation as something went awry with the returning cruiser guests’ debarkation process.  We could not get on the ship until everyone from the prior sailing got off the ship and that didn’t happen until about…
