Some of our clients who went on our 2014 safari didn't want us to wait two or three years to set up our next adventure to Africa. So we have set up another trip...this time to Southern Africa...for 2015!
For this trip we will visit Chobe National Park in Botswana, which has the highest concentration of elephants anywhere in the world. From there we will visit Victoria Falls, one of the most spectacular sites on Earth! The third stop will be Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe for three days of game viewing.
An optional three-night extension to Cape Town is also available. One of our favorite cities in the world, this add-on trip will feature a trip up Table Mountain, a tour of the incredible Cape and lodging at the beautiful Twelve Apostles Resort and Spa.
For more information, be sure to download the PDF fliers below. This will sell out VERY quickly, so be sure to contact us as soon as possible if you are interested in joining us!
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:
We have already booked multiple cruises and cruise/tours for the 2015 Alaska season. In fact, the space is going fast! Remember that we represent ALL cruise lines and are Alaska experts! We can help you with your 2015 Alaska plans...whether it be a 7-night premium round trip cruise from Seattle or a southbound cruise aboard a luxury liner!
In fact, we hope to escort a 7-night southbound Alaska cruise from Whittier (Anchorage) to Vancouver. But before we board, we will lead a 3-night land tour to Fairbanks and Denali National Park. We depart May 31, 2015. The space is will more than half gone, so we suggest that you sign up now with your refundable deposit, even if you are just considering joining us.
Some of our clients have decided to join us for the 7-night cruise but not the pre-cruise land trip. If you wish to do so, call us for the current rates. The flier below shows the rates WITH the land tour included so the cost for doing the cruise only will be less than those doing the entire 10-night trip. The cruise begins on June 3, 2015.
For further information click on the link below. It will open a PDF flier with the current rates (for the 10-night land/cruise option) and the day-by-day itinerary for both the land and cruise portion of the trip. We hope you'll join us!!
Enjoy a ship with all-suite accommodations, prepaid gratuities, all beverages and gourmet dining...all while you cruise round trip from Copenhagen aboard the luxurious Seabourn Quest. 14-night cruise departing July 11, 2015.
We hope to escort this sailing.

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 three 20-Year-Anniversary cruises! One to Alaska! One to the South Pacific! One along the West Coast of the USA! Of course you are welcome to participate in all of these cruises if you really want to celebrate!
14-Night Paul Gauguin Cruise to the South Pacific! It is only appropriate that one of our three 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
7-night Alaska Cruise with a 3-night Pre-Cruise Land Package. In late May 2015 we will be escorting a 7-night Alaska cruise from Anchorage (Whittier) to Vancouver. Prior to the cruise, there is an optional 3-night land package that visits Denali National Park and Fairbanks.
The flier below shows the pricing for BOTH the land package and the cruise. For those interested in the cruise only, please contact us for the current pricing...it will be less than the rates shown on the flier once the land tour is removed.
It is our opinion that everyone should go to Alaska at least once in their life! This will be our 9th or 10th trip there. We cannot get enough of this beautiful destination. Here is the link to the PDF flier you can download and print.
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.
