Classy Cancun: Club Med is a Lavish Breath of Fresh Air for Vacationing Families & Couples

Oct 10, 2014  |   Contributor: Marissa Stempien

Cancun—the city of spring break, 24-hour nightclubs and more alcohol than a fraternity could down in a week—or at least that’s what I’ve always thought. Before last weekend I had never been there and its tales of rumpus frivolity and potentially illicit activities did not put it high on the list of places I needed to see before I die, but that was until I actually visited the coastal city.

Jamaica Gets Some Karisma With The Newly Renovated All-Inclusive Azul Sensatori Resort

May 22, 2014  |   Contributor: Chanize Thorpe  |  2 Comments

In the past, all-inclusive resorts weren’t considered a luxury vacation. The one-price-pays-all concept would consist of mediocre accommodations, watered down cocktails in plastic cups, and uninspired cuisine in buffet-style restaurants. Well, times have changed, and the proof is in the pudding at the new Azul Sensatori Jamaica, which officially welcomed guests in April 2014 after a super-quiet soft opening in December 2013.

Scenic River Cruises' Newest 'Space-Ship' Lands in Europe

Apr 26, 2013  |   Contributor: Tara Imperatore

Here's one 'Space-Ship' you wouldn't mind being beamed up into: Scenic Cruises' newest river boat, Scenic Jewel. It fits in quite nicely with the six other precious and semi-precious stone themed vessels Scenic Crystal, Diamond, Emerald, Pearl, Ruby and Sapphire. We’ll have to venture a guess that Scenic Cruises is calling their collection 'Space-Ships' so passengers know they'll have plenty of room to move around once on board. It sounds so simple and perhaps unnecessary until you're crammed into a tiny stateroom and have to shower over your toilet. Times they are a changin'.... Read More
