Dring our convention cruise in the Western Mediterranean, I wrote briefly about our visit to the bridge of Celebrity Century.

You may have seen an image before that shows a triangle has three labels on each leg. It may read speed, service and price or there may be different labels on versions you have seen, but there is usually a sidebar message that says “pick any two”. The point being made is that you can never have all three at once.
For us, we tend to focus on just two; speed and service. We are quick to respond to your phone calls and emails. We believe in going beyond what you expect when it comes to customer service as frankly we think customer service is becoming a lost art. You will find something beyond the ordinary when using our services when planning a cruise.
In yesterday’s entry, a guest shared why she felt cruising makes the perfect family vacation. I wanted to add to that there are some exciting adventures available, once you get to a port of call.

Images like the above are all over the internet, especially when it comes to travel sales. Unless you are looking at prices every single day, how do you really know you are getting a good “Hot Deal”, “Sale”, or “WOW!”? More importantly, how do you know you are getting a good value. I wanted to take a minute and let you know there are several different ways you can choose to purchase your next vacation. For the purposes of this entry, however, I am just going to concentrate on two different types.
