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.

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.
