  • There are not many other vacations which offer the all-in-one experience like a cruise voyage. A cruise gives you the chance to enjoy your choice of several entertainment and fine dining options, all which are located steps away from your cabin. Most cruises offer nightly entertainment, including comedians, live bands, Broadway style shows and other acts. They also feature dancing, casinos, spas and additional entertainment choices for children. The deck offers sunbathing, swimming, shuffleboard and other outside activities.
  • Cruising will allow you to visit many destinations in one trip. During a Mediterranean cruise you can take in multiple cities in countries such as Spain, Italy, France and Greece. This is often a great way to select a location where you may want to return for a land-based vacation.
  • The selection of cruise ships and experiences available has never been better! From luxury lines where everything is included in your price (airfare, shore excursions, all beverages and gratuities) to amazing options for families where the ships ARE the destination and offer on-board experiences such as zip-lines, rock climbing, ice skating, in-pool scuba – just to name a few of the highlights!
  • Looking for something small and intimate? Consider a river cruise – one of the hottest trends in travel today. River cruising offers a comfortable and relaxing vacation through many of the world’s most picturesque rivers, canals, inlets and harbors.

As fall starts to creep through the U.S. and Canada, CWT Savvy Traveler is going to spend some weekend time cruising: cruising for fall color, that is. Michael Moretti, Director, Business Development for CWT, tells us about his area, New England:

Michael MorettiWhen I was 11, we moved to Connecticut. You know, that small, square state, with the tail? I thought it was a death sentence. Everything was old, and it just seemed we were always having to drive on these back roads to get anywhere. And what was with all the trees? In later years, I would fondly remember those trees, and at times dream about those dramatic change of seasons as fall in New England is Read more…

airline-alert-watchWhen we last wrote about wearable tech, the Apple Watch was somewhere between rumor and assumption. Design was closely hidden. There was already other wearable tech that can help travelers on the road.

However, whenever Apple makes a move into a new product, the amount of discussion automatically gets Read more…
