Most of our business is that of helping people plan their own private land-based or cruise-based vacations. But we also lead several groups per year to various places in the world...both cruise AND land-based trips!
So that you don't have to go through all of our blog entries to find all of the upcoming trips we hope to escort, here is a summary of them...we've also included a link to a blog entry with the specifics about each trip.
At the bottom of most of these blog entries you will see a link to a PDF document...click on this link to view and/or download a flyer with more specifics about that particular trip.
If you have a few friends or family members who want to go to a specific part of the world, let us know and we will put a custom trip together for you!
Here is the summary of our upcoming escorted trips:

During the first quarter of 2016 findacruisedeal.com will celebrate 20 years of providing cruise and land-based vacations for our clients.
Our hope is that as many of our past (and new) clients as possible will join us for one of two 20-Year-Anniversary cruises! Of course you are welcome to participate in both cruises if you really want to celebrate!
14-Night Paul Gauguin Cruise to the South Pacific! It is only appropriate that one of our two celebration cruises takes us to our favorite place in the world...the Marquesas, Tuamotus and Society Islands! This 14-night cruise also features our good friend Jean-Michel Cousteau. Our owner has been on this ship more than a half-dozen times and can't wait to go back for more. His favorite day is the private motu (island) visit in Taha'a. Departing November 21, 2015. Because this is a smaller ship, it does fill up very early so we recommend that you hold your space soon! See the map below, left, for the itinerary! PDF printable flier available at the end of this post.
7-Night Princess California Coastal Cruise. It is also appropriate that the second of our anniversary cruises departs from our home base, Los Angeles. During this 7-night cruise aboard the Crown Princess, we will visit such great California cities as San Francisco, San Diego and Santa Barbara. Departing April 16, 2016. See the map above, right, for the itinerary!
PDF Fliers for both of these cruises showing rates and itineraries can be downloaded and printed using the links below. We hope you will join us and help us celebrate 20 years of findacruisedeal.com
Over the past few years, Carl Dreizler, owner of findacruisedeal.com has had the pleasure of cruising aboard the Paul Gauguin several times. He usually tries to schedule his cruises during one of those where Jean-Michel Cousteau is a featured speaker.
The PDF fliers below can be opened and printed. They show the next several cruises that will feature Mr. Cousteau. We hope to escort one or two of them!
These particular voyages are great for those who love the ocean and for those who enjoy SCUBA diving. Because we believe so much in what Ocean Futures Society does to promote a clean ocean environment, our agency will make a donation to Mr. Cousteau's non-profit organization when anyone books their cruise through findacruisedeal.com.
Here are the upcoming Paul Gauguin Cruises featuring Jean-Michel Cousteau:
Because of our company name, many people think that we book cruises only. Nothing could be further from the truth! Not only can we help you plan complete land-based vacations, but we can also help you if you want to book JUST a hotel stay.
While most of our clients trust that we will always try to find the best price for you, we know some people scour the Internet to see if they can find an even lower rate than what we are able to provide. All we ask is that you give us a chance. Sometimes our rates are even better than you can find online OR perhaps one of our suppliers can provide an added amenity that you would not get with an Internet reservation. We will also check with our wholesale suppliers to see what they can offer!
If you plan on booking 10 more more rooms, we can often get you a special group rate!
Just send us an e-mail and let us know the following information. We will research the rates and get back to you:
We hope to serve you on your future hotel reservations!
So many people think that the only choices for shore excursions while on a cruise are those that are offered by the cruise lines. But there are other choices and resources. We can help you with them!
ShoreTrips. You can access ShoreTrips by clicking on their logo on the right-hand side of our home page OR by clicking here. While this company does not operate in all ports throughout the world, they do have multiple choices for shore excursions in most major ports frequented by the cruise lines. Often, even if their pricing is similar to those excursions offered by the cruise lines, they are usually offered with fewer participants.
Customized Excursions. We have incredibly valuable resources throughout the world! In most countries we have certified "On Location" specialists with whom we can work to put together a private, customized tour for you in almost every port in the world. Keep in mind that the cost of private excursions will cost significantly more than the "group" excursions offered by the cruise lines. That said, many of our clients prefer the flexibility and intimacy of private tours. We also have another supplier, who arranges private trips for us throughout the world.
Group Excursions. Quite often when we lead groups aboard cruise ships we create our own excursions and offer them to our clients. If you are traveling with other people, no matter how small or large the group, we can help put together a customized shore excursion and/or pre/post cruise trip suited just for your needs and requirements.
The photos seen on this post were some I took on our last voyage to Antarctica. It was one of my favorite trips. On that trip I was on a luxury cruise ship but we were not able to get off the vessel to explore Antarctica.
"Next time I go to Antarctica" I said, "I'm going on an explorer ship so I can do landings and more scenic photography." As it ends up, I'm hoping to do something better! With the Seabourn Quest you get the best of both worlds! Aboard the Quest, for six days, you will have Zodiac landings and touring...yet rather than being on a 30-year-old explorer vessel, you will be sailing on a top-of-the-line luxury cruise ship!
As I type this Blog post, Seabourn is offering a verandah suite for the price of a window cabin. This is a HUGE upgrade...available only for a limited time. For more details about this November 29, 2014 sailing, click on the two links below. Each will open a PDF flier showing the itinerary and current pricing. Both fliers refer to this trip. Rates are expected to go up at any time.
We hope to escort one of these two cruises aboard the luxurious all-suites Seabourn Odyssey. This 7-night cruise departs May 2, 2015 from Istanbul, one of the greatest cities in the world and disembarks in Athens...home of the Acropolis! The same ship does the reverse itinerary on September 5, 2015.
Ports include Santorini, where the famous blue dome (pictured above) is located...one of the most photographed buildings in all of Europe. Also included is a stop at Kusadasi nearby Ephesus, a place the owner of our agency calls, "The best archaeological site in the world."
With Seabourn Cruises, not only do you get top-of-the line service in an all-suites environment, but gratuities and wine/spirts are included!
