Taking Cruising to a New Level Aug19

Taking Cruising to a New Level...

If you’ve been on a cruise before, you may think you’ve already seen it all; a wide, blue ocean and crystal clear skies as far as the eyes can see. However, AMA Waterways has produced an all new way of enjoying a cruise without simply repeating the same experience over and over. AMA Waterways Rhine cruises take customers on a grand trip not around Europe, but through it via some of the most gorgeous rivers available. While this may not seem like the grandest adventure at first, taking a look at just a few of the benefits of booking one of these trips can dramatically change your opinion on this. The most obvious benefit is that this aspect of Great Escapes Travel allows you to interact more intimately with the culture of your destinations than a traditional cruise would. Usually, a regular sea-based cruise that you book through a travel agency stops only at major port cities, which are geared towards tourists and therefore only give you a glimpse of life in the area. River cruises, on the other hand, allow you to move further inland and to visit cities and towns where residents really live and work. This makes it the perfect option for those who tend to enjoy a more hands-on and intimate experience during their travels. A river cruise is also the perfect way to grow closer with your fellow travelers. In fact, AMA Waterways prides themselves on providing an intimate and romantic atmosphere for their guests throughout the experience. Typically, the ships are also smaller than those that handle the ocean waves as well, meaning the setting itself is typically more relaxed as well, giving you the relative peace and quiet you need to really get closer to family, friends...

4 Ways To Enjoy A Stress-Free Trip To Rome...

Travel, no matter how wonderful and exhilarating, can be stressful as well. Here are a few tips to make the stress go away. Get tickets in advance The lines at the Vatican and Coliseum are gut-wrenchingly long. If you haven’t got all day to spend on the queues, then best to buy a ticket well in advance. That’ll allow you to go ahead of the crowds. If you’re under a tight schedule, then getting those tickets in advance is a must, says the Business Insider. Do your research Don’t assume that all the restaurants in the city will serve you divine Italian feasts. Rome is a popular tourist destination and a lot of the restaurants take advantage of that fact by serving substandard meals. If you want to make every meal time count, put in the work and do your research. That should help you find restaurants that offer great meals that won’t hurt your wallet. Avoid the crowded summer months If you don’t want to find yourself running into a huge crowd of tourists everywhere you turn, don’t book your trip during the summer months. Otherwise, prepare for the long queues, not just to popular local attractions but to the restroom, shops and restaurants, and everything else in between. Crowds can also slow you down, making it difficult to bop over from one spot to another. Go on a private tour There’s nothing like the convenience of having someone take care of you for the entire trip or a few days during your stay. By booking Rome private tours, you can experience what the city has to offer in a way that’s completely different from the average tourist on a DIY tour and budget. It’ll also help you see more of the city...

What An International Courier Company Can Do For You...

If you are like most people, you’ve shipped items in the past, only to find they were lost in transit, broken or arrived late. While you’ll probably use a domestic courier company for shipments in your area or country, an international option may be necessary if you’re shipping items overseas. They should be able to do many things for you, such as making sure the items arrive safely and on time. However, they can do much more, as well. Tracking It’s important to be able to see where your items are and when they’re planning to get to their destination. While most people don’t mind if it’s a day or two late, it may be pressing, such as a gift for a special occasion or food that could spoil. Pick Up They should come to your door to pick up the items instead of making you take them to a particular location. In some cases, it may be easier for you to drop off the items to be shipped, but in most cases, you’ll want them to come to you. Other Shipping Companies International courier companies can’t do it alone, so they need other shipping companies that are reputable. You can usually go to their website to find information about the other companies, but if not, give them a call. They want you to feel comfortable about your decision. Quick In almost all cases, your items can be shipped within four to six business days. While this doesn’t count weekends, it can still be faster than many other companies out there, even ones that promise quick delivery. Therefore, it’s in your best interest to use a speedy service. Properly Packaged Without proper packaging, your items could become lost or damaged/broken. Most couriers will offer...
