This is an adventure we have been working on and anticipating for months. We hope to escort this trip with Lindblad Expeditions to the archipelago in the very northern part of Norway where we will search for polar bears and other arctic wildlife.
We begin the trip in Oslo on May 30, 2017 and then fly to Longyearbyen where we will board our ship, the National Geographic Explorer.
For the following six days we will go on journeys to be planned based on local conditions and animal movement. This promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime journey. We do anticipate that this trip will sell out very early and encourage our new and existing clients to sign up as soon as possible!

We hope to escort a group of our clients on this luxury voyage aboard the Regent Seven Seas Navigator. The ship departs Lisbon on October 23, 2016 and sails for 24 nights down the west coast of Africa to the port of Cape Town...one of our favorite world cities.
Regent Seven Seas is an all-inclusive cruise line so your spirits, gratuities, shore excursions, air and transfers are all included! We'll even include some extra shipboard credits to sweeten the deal even more!

Since returning from Antarctica in 2015, we have posted hundreds of photos of our spectacular trip. If you missed them, Click Here ... they can be viewed right here on our website.
Most ships that go to Antarctica are older "explorer" vessels. But with this trip, you get the expedition experience but will cruise in luxury aboard the Seabourn Quest, known by many as the best service at sea! It is truly the best of both worlds.
Because these trips sell out very early, we recommend that you hold the best cabins as soon as possible. The deposit is fully refundable. For more information about this cruise, the itinerary and the pricing, click on the icon below. It will open up a flyer that you can view and/or print out. Pricing may be different than that shown on the flyer...call me for the most up-to-date rates.
** We are scheduled to escort a group on this voyage. However a minimum number of people are required so there is a chance we may not get to go.

Earlier this summer I returned from my tenth trip to Alaska. This time I had about 20 findacruisedeal.com clients with me. As a result of my frequent trips to Alaska and my 20 years in the cruise business I've gained a great deal of knowledge about this destination.
I'm hoping this Alaska tip on my blog will help our current and future clients as they plan their own first, second or multiple trip to this great state! I always tell people that if they can only go on one cruise in their lifetime, Alaska is the place to go. I never get tired of this destination.
I remind our readers in this and every tip... You do NOT save money by booking your Alaska cruise direct with the cruise line. Please call us to let us help you plan the Alaska cruise that is best for your situation. We always try to find the best possible deal for our clients...and you will likely receive added benefits you would NOT get booking direct!
What are the itinerary options for an Alaska cruise? While there are cruise lines that offer unique itineraries, more than 90% of Alaska cruises are either:
a) Round trip from Seattle
b) One way between Vancouver and Anchorage (Northbound or Southbound)
And, more than 90% of Alaska cruises are 7 nights in duration. (Again, there are other options.) For example, one cruise line offers 10-night cruises from San Francisco.
So many people choose the round trip Seattle option because of the convenience of a round trip flight within the Continental USA. But should you choose the itinerary strictly because of the convenience of the flights? I much prefer the northbound or southbound cruises to the round trip cruises.
Add-on Land Packages: For those sailing round trip from Seattle or Vancouver we can add on a pre or post-cruise land package to Whistler, Jasper and/or Banff, Canada! For those doing a one-way cruise between Anchorage and Vancouver, we can add a 3-7 night pre or post-cruise land package with such destinations as Denali National Park, the Yukon, Fairbanks and many other stops in the interior of Alaska.
Cruise Line Options: There are many different cruise line companies that sail to Alaska...from the most budget of lines to the top-of-the-line luxury lines. One of the benefits of working with an agency like findacruisedeal.com is that we help you select the correct cruise line for your situation and budget.
For a complete list of Alaska cruise itinerary options contact our office. We already have a record number of clients booked for 2016!
We hope to escort this cruise that will depart Dubai and cruise through the Suez Canal before we visit the Holy Land and continue on to Monte Carlo. This is a great cruise for those who have been to most parts of the world but have yet to say they've cruised the Suez Canal. It is also a great trip for those who have not seen the Holy Land or, perhaps, have always wanted to go to Dubai.
This 20-night voyage, departing May 5, 2016, is aboard the luxurious Seabourn Sojourn...in our opinion, the perfect-size ship with just 450 passengers. This is an all-suite vessel where wine, spirits and gratuities are all included in the cruise fare!
For further information, please click on the PDF flyer below. Current prices and a day-by-day itinerary are shown here. We hope you'll join us on this incredible voyage!
Our agency sells quite a few Regent Seven Seas (RSSC) cruises every year. RSSC is the ideal cruise line for the upscale traveler who does not like to get "nickel and dimed" on a cruise.
Let's say that you normally cruise on a "premium" (middle level) cruise line but that you usually get a mini-suite or suite on that cruise line. Once you are on board the premium cruise line, you are charged for shore excursions, transfers to and from the ship, wine with dinner, gratuities and even bottles of water. Often the onboard bill for some of our clients approaches the cost of the trip itself. Wouldn't it be nice to get off a cruise ship and have that final bill have a $00.00 balance due? That is very possible when you sail with RSSC!
Believe it or not, the entry level cabin on two of the three RSSC ships is nicer than the mini-suite on most of the premium cruise lines' ships.
The "Veranda Suite" features a walk-in closet with a safe, a spacious bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, your own private balcony and a sitting area adjacent to the comfortable bed.
