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.
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:
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!
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! One to the South Pacific! One along the West Coast of the USA! Of course you are welcome to participate in both of these cruises if you really want to celebrate!
10-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 Tuamotus and Society Islands! This 10-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 June 1, 2016. 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
We recently put together a Fall Foliage cruise for a local group but any of our existing or NEW clients are welcome to take part in this voyage!
Departing on October 2, 2014 the Ruby Princess sails for 10 nights from Quebec City to New York. Take a look at the great itinerary!
