Cruise and Vacation Tips

Understanding Cruise Pricing

The Advertised Cruise Price can be very misleading. The Price you Pay may not be anything like the Price you saw advertised. The Price of Your Cruise has three basic components; the fare, the port fees, and the taxes. Sometimes the fare and port fees are combined. The Advertised Price may look great only to find out it was Fare Only!

Understanding All-Inclusive Resorts

All Inclusive typically means the airfare, hotel, and all food and drink is included. Across the Caribbean Adults means Adults Only but also identifies the resort as having International branded Liqueur. The same brand but not an Adults Only Resort may only have local Liqueur.

If you see European it means continental breakfast only. Many resorts in the Southern Caribbean charge an additional fee for the All-Inclusive package.

Understanding Travel Protection

Travel Protection is sometimes referred to as travel insurance. This can provide only for some losses while on the trip; examples include baggage, personal items, medical, itinerary change, and medical evacuation. The premium is often inexpensive. You can cover the Cruise, Tour, or Vacation if you have to Cancel for Medical Reasons, or if you Cancel for Any Reason. Cancellation coverage gets more expensive.

Some people think the socialized medicine in some countries will take care of them, maybe but call the embassy in Washington and ask. I bet they will not fly you home if you need a medical flight to get back.
