Only Norwegian lets you visit four islands in seven days, which means you’re on an island each and every day!  It is no wonder that they were voted Porthole Magazine’s “Best Hawaii Itinerary” for 10 years in a row! And since NCL is the only cruise line that homeports in Hawaii, offering convenient year-round Saturday departures, you can vacation on your schedule.  I’ll be sailing around Hawaii Oct 31, 2015.

Hello excited travelers!  Many people expect that nothing could possibly happen to them as they travel.  But, some of us have learned that life  is unpredictable.  My job is to make you aware of the things you might not think of when you travel.

Because I have seen so many unexpected things happen during my travels, I have become very “risk averse”.  I personally have seen a person have to be air lifted off a ship 1/2 way to Cabo and be returned to San Diego by medical evacuation helicopter. My 1st thought when I heard what was happening was ” I hope that person has travel insurance to cover this.” You have to have the right insurance coverage to pay for that.  I’ve seen a person step off a tour bus and break her ankle.  She had to pay for emergency transport and hospital expense and re-schedule her flights to another country to get back home to see her own doctors and pay again.  I know a man who had a stroke while on a cruise and had to stay a week in a foreign hospital in Turkey and then be flown home on a special medical transport  (both very expensive.) I’ve seen a young lady break her leg when she slipped at Dunn’s River Falls in Jamaica.  She had to charge $1,500 unexpectedly on her charge card to get medical treatment at the hospital.  A friend slipped on the marble floors at a resort in Cancun and broke her hip.  I could keep going on and on.

I am not trying to alarm you, I merely want you to be protected from unexpected problems.  I always insure myself when I travel and always advise my clients to do the same.  If a plan you have at home currently will cover all the things listed, then you don’t need anything extra.  You can even get coverage up to a day before you travel but the quote is about much more than cancelling the cruise or tour.  When I send you a quote,  please read the coverage very carefully.  The choice is up to you.  If “Las Vegas” is your style, then so be it.  Just know before you go.  I’ve done my part by informing you.  “I wish I had” doesn’t pay for anything.
Bon Voyage, SusanLake Como

I’m often asked about the weather. It is a warm area of the world, so think summer and dress accordingly. It seems that the rainy season is usually mid Aug to mid Nov and dry season is Dec through March. Friends who have been said it was an amazing trip.

Join Me Tonight – Special Alaska Cruise Virtual Tour – Ask Questions


“One of the most beautiful and interesting places I’ve traveled to is Alaska. Many people say that they have sailed to The Inside Passage and think that this is all there is to Alaska. NOT!!! It is so huge that I think it would take 5 or 6 trips to see it all. Now, granted, I’m a nature lover from top to bottom. I’ve been twice for 14 day trips and saw not only the Inside Passage, but The Yukon Territory and the central portion containing Denali National Park. I’ve seen close to 20 each of grizzly bears, moose, caribou and Dall Sheep; a couple of wolves, and even a big porcupine. I’ve flown over Mt. McKinley (it’s huge), ridden the Denali train from Fairbanks to Anchorage and stayed in a couple of lodges along the way. My next trip I want to take a plane out to a remote lodge and see those big bears catching salmon jumping out of the river. I’d also like to see the pod of whales returned to Alaska for the summer. I saw them during the winter in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. In order to prepare you for an exciting adventure, I’m inviting you to join me as I attend an on-line Webinar. I watch many every week and find them to be a great way to learn about a destination. Come along with me on this armchair trip to Alaska.” Bon Voyage, Susan   Holland American Line Online Alaska-A Virtual Tour Join us Today at 7:00 p.m. (EST)!! register now Read more


What’s the difference? River Cruising or Ocean Cruising?

Does smooth sailing and smaller group gatherings with a more intimate feeling appeal to you?

Or, do you prefer the hustle bustle of a huge group and long walks to get all over a ship as well as on and off?

Do you prefer all-inclusive sailings with soft drinks, wine, beer and perhaps other alcohol, including shore excursions? Perhaps you like paying extra for all of that?

In a nutshell, I believe that River Cruising is a most enjoyable way to travel and gives you greater value because of their all-inclusive deals.
