Luxury Cruising

April 2nd, 2014
Posted by: Lucy Fernandez

As an owner of the Fernandez family’s Affordabletours.com, I been fortunate these past 10 years to experience many, many remarkable travel opportunities, from tours to river cruises, to ocean cruises. That said, two weeks ago when I embarked on the Silversea Spirit for their twelve day Mediterranean cruise from Istanbul to Athens, I was totally unprepared for the event that was about to unfold.

Silversea Cruise Line is the Rolls Royce equivalent among the world’s cruise lines.   Founded over twenty years ago, this small cruise ship company has dedicated itself to the ultimate in luxury travel.  Their fleet consists of six remarkable ships, with passenger counts ranging from 296 to 540, and their passenger to staff ratio is practically one to one, so no other cruise line comes close to providing the extraordinary personal service one encounters on Silversea.  (more…)

Many vacation packages and cruises are designed for individuals or couples. One or two adults have a lot more autonomy and freedom as to where to go and what to do on a vacation, not to mention what they’re physically capable of on something like an adventure tour.

Some of us are parents, though, and we have to plan our vacations around our children’s needs. We can’t necessarily leave our children behind when we want to vacation: We may not have anyone who’s able (or willing) to take care of them for that length of time; we may spend too much time worrying about them if they’re not with us; we may want to bring them along and build experiences and memories together.

Trafalgar Tours offers a line of vacations that can meet all our needs. Keep reading to learn more about Trafalgar Family Experiences.
