Celebrity Aqua Class

We recently returned from a two week cruise to New England and Canada which included an overnight stay in Quebec.  If you enjoy Europe, you will love old town Quebec with its narrow streets, quaint shops and restaurants. 

On this particular sailing we elected to stay in an Aqua Class cabin which is a spa inspired balcony cabin.  You are greeted with a bottle of champagne in your cabin upon arrival which is a great way to salute the afternoon sail away while standing on your balcony.  You will also find bottled water in your cabin everyday along with a decanter of favored tea.   Of course you have your slippers and a very comfortable bath robe to use when you enjoy unlimited excess to the Persian Garden, a relaxing oasis with heated mosaic lounge chairs and grottos releasing a variety of dry heat, aromatherapy-infused steam and mists into the air.

And your cabin shower has a large rain shower head as well as multiple adjustable showers nozzles that you can direct onto your body.

And you can select the time in the afternoon when they will deliver a small plate of canapes to enjoy with your tea.

But I really enjoyed the exclusive use of Blu, a chic specialty restaurant only for Aqua Class passengers, where the daily attire is always Smart Casual.  This restaurant has open dining for breakfast and dinner for the Aqua Class passengers to enjoy.  This is definitely worth selecting for your next cruise, but don’t delay as the capacity is limited on each ship.

Celebrity Cruises line has launched a Go Big, Better, Best program that runs through April, 2017 this exciting offering, the first of it's kind in the cruise industry where you can bundle amenities into the price of the cruise.  This is a great way to get amenities at a greatly reduced cost for ocean view and higher staterooms.

Choose from 3 packaged offers:

Go Big: You pay the base stateroom cost and choose 1 of 4 amenities (Classic Beverage Package, Prepaid Gratuities, Unlimited Internet, Onboard Credit)
Go Better: Choose two of the 4 amenities for an additional increase in cruise fare.
Go Best:  get all amenities with free upgrade to a Premium Beverage Package.

Availability varies by sailing.  Give us a call 440 985-1226 or 440 225-9202

Now as we roll into 2016, we will have
"Mamma Mia" at the State Theatre on Sunday, March 13th - a really great feel good performance.  Then on April 13th it's "Beautiful - The Carol King Musical" - Carol King wrote the soundtracks to a generation - "I Feel the Earth Move", "One Fine Day", "Natural Woman", Your're Got a Friend" and "Beautiful".

Then on May 19th it's "Matilda, The Musical" which continues to thrill audiences in London and NYC.

As we enter into the summer my favorite will arrive, "Phantom of the Opera"  we don't have our exact show date yet, but it should be in June or very early July at the State Theatre.  Then comes "Steel Magnolias" which should be late July or early August at the Allen Theatre.  Once we get the dates for these final two shows, we will be sure to update everyone.  

So get ready for some great entertainment in downtown Cleveland this year and next.

Norwegian Fjords Cruise

We were looking for a different trip, one that took us to beautiful surroundings and was not your normal typical cruise and along came a cruise to Norway.  While the sailing season in Norway is short, Celebrity makes two sailings one at the very end of August and one, the one we selected, the very first week of May, 2016.  They say spring (May to mid June) is when the scenery in Norway is at its most spectacular, with trees and flowers coming alive, snow in the mountains and melt presenting the waterfalls at their peak of beauty.  The orchards of flowering fruit trees in May are images of paradise. 

This is an 8 night cruise with a 9th night that we will spend in London.  While airfare is not yet available for next May, we have provided $1,400 in our costs.  While there are various levels of cabins in each category, the approximate cost is $3,850 per person for inside cabins, $4,400 for Ocean View and $4,800 for balcony.  Costs include port taxes, the post night hotel in London transfers, insurance, airfare and the cruise.  For more details, please give us a call.  440 985 1226

If you are looking for a private vacation trip for you or maybe your family as well, give us a call and we can assist you in your planning of an ocean cruise, river cruise or various land trips both here in the United States and Canada, as well as over seas.  If an Apple Vacation is on your list we can assist you there as well, as we are also Apple Vacation representatives.  When you work with us, we will ensure your pre-boarding paperwork is completed before you depart to limit the processing time on the dock.

When it comes to Apple Vacations, there are many non stop flights that can be obtained to places such as Punta Cana where you can enjoy an all inclusive vacation at a beautiful resort.

So if you want to start off the new year with something to look forward to, give us a call!
