Travel deals for the Caribbean and New Hampshire

Yesterday I asked if 2010 would have lots of travel bargains for us. If you’re set on going to the Caribbean, the best deals may have passed according to this article. They recommend booking now since “flights to the Caribbean are still tight, making it difficult to find a seat and bargains, especially on popular travel dates.”

Also related to Caribbean vacations we have this article that compares all inclusive resorts with cruise vacations (which I did a while back as well). They conclude that the resort is a better value and a better experience. They like not hearing sales pitches for bingo and art auctions. I can see that. And they like eating barefoot in the sand. Sounds good. I was planning on Oasis of the Seas (the new biggest cruise ship) but now that I think about it, Sirenis Punta Cana or another all inclusive might be better.

I’m not set on the Caribbean so what travel bargains are out there now? One I thought was fun was this one, where you become a fan of New Hampshire on Facebook and get half off a hotel. Every month it’s a bit different from what I understand but this month we have: “Escape to Lake Winnipesaukee in November and enjoy 50% off deluxe lake view accommodations at The Inns & Spa at Mill Falls premiere lodging facility, Church Landing.” Pretty cool.

    No, I disagree. You do not mention cruises that have been around for years such as Ncl or Celebrity that are very cost-effective. All is included on a ship like meals all day long and room chosen. I could go on the ncl, Gem for $699 each for an inside room. Of course, you have to add transportation cost and an additional fee of $150 for taxes, etc. You also have to pay $12/day at the end of the cruise for the staff. Altogether, you pay $1023 each. I don’t think that is bad for all the food you can eat, activities on the ship, movies all day, entertainment shows each night, malls to shop in on the ship, pools on the ship, hot tubs galore, fitness center with treadmills, stationary bikes, rowing machines, and weights; spas, hairstylists, laundry, daycare, children areas, art auctions, bars, casino, yoga, dance lessons, disco, specialty restaurants… Endless. Re-think your vacations before you write!!!
