Transatlantic Crossing

Always wanted to make like an explorer and cross the Atlantic by ship?  This may be the year to do it!

Cruise lines have always offered good deals on spring and fall  “repositioning cruises”, when they move ships from summer routes in Europe to winter routes in the Caribbean, but this year the rates are better than ever. There are more ships making the move, the economy has already had an effect on pricing and demand, and the cruise lines don’t want to sail with empty cabins.

There’s a great article about this in today’s Miami Herald. The two best pieces of advice:

– These cruises are not for everyone (they’re long, with lots of days at sea)

– It pays to consult a cruise expert to help you find the best fit for you

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!
