If The Cruise Offer Sounds Too Good To Be True…

REDLANDS, CA – MAY 21, 2013If a cruise offer sounds too good to be true, there is probably a reason. Though there are amazing, unprecedented cruise values available today, there are several nuances with cruise options and cruise pricing that a traveler must keep in mind. This is where a travel expert becomes vital.

“Today’s rates are out of this world. But, it’s not as simple as choosing the best price or an enticing deal,” said Lynda Schauf owner of Laura’s Travel.   “Travelers need an expert to get through these unchartered waters.” Travel experts help consumers do everything from making a travel deal transparent to finding the right cruise to fit a traveler’s personal preferences and budget--plus they help with all of the details including pre and post cruise options and shore excursions. In addition, travel experts are able to provide exclusive privileges and added value that clients are not able to acquire on their own. It doesn’t stop at booking,  travel experts will be there for travelers when they are on their vacation and when they return home.

A few of today’s incredible deals include 2-for-1 cruises, kids sail free, free shore excursions, free airfare, incredible amounts of shipboard credits, and much more. These deals are much easier to maneuver with the help of a cruise specialist.

“A client called about an all-inclusive resort vacation deal she’d seen in The Travel Magazine,” said Lynda“Kelly was really excited to surprise her husband with an anniversary vacation getaway. After some discussion about her priorities, preferences and budget, we discovered that an Alaska cruise was actually the best option for her and her husband.”

Lynda) continued, “I was not only able to get her an amazing rate on airfare from Los Angeles, but I got her our added exclusive of $100 shipboard credit. We planned everything from the whale-watching excursion she wanted to the balcony stateroom she knew her husband would love. Plus, we added a post-cruise tour so that her husband could fulfill his dream of helii-hiking. Everything went without a hitch until their flight was cancelled on the way back. With one phone call, I was able to erase any worries and book an alternative. Once safely home, Linda’s husband Jim called to tell me it was a success…and he was already starting to brainstorm the next adventure.”
