Barbados just got a little bit better

US Airways just announced more frequent nonstops to Barbados this fall and winter, bringing this beautiful island a little bit closer to all of us here on the East Coast!

Starting October 1st, they will fly non-stop from Philadelphia to Barbados on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. For the winter season (starting December 1st) those non-stops will run every day, seven days per week.

What does this mean?

It means I can hop on a plane in Providence at 7 a.m. on a Tuesday morning and be in Bridgetown by 2:30 in the afternoon, with plenty of time to check into my hotel and go for a swim before dinner!

As a side note….since I mentioned dinner….dining in Barbados is a real treat. It’s the only Caribbean country to have its own Zagat guide, and has been called the “Culinary Capital of the Caribbean”


You provided excellent guidance for us. I appreciated that you really had us think about what was most important to us when we were selecting the right cruise – and not to totally focus on what other people had to say. THANK YOU for helping to make this a memorable trip for our family! It really was a trip of a lifetime!

The level of service we experienced was out of this world (and we did NOT make it easy on Ann). We weren’t quite sure where we wanted to go, when we would be able to go, or what “vibe” we were going for. After asking us some key questions (what we liked, didn’t like, why, etc.) Ann helped us narrow down our trip details and planned the honeymoon of our dreams. She helped book some of our excursions, answered some emergency questions while abroad and was always available/willing to help. I think it’s safe to say we won’t be using anyone else for future travel planning – Ann is a rockstar!
