Top New Cruises We’re Most Excited About!
The new year brings a slew of new cruises to suit every travelers’ taste, from family-oriented, ten-day trips to the Caribbean, to luxury, round-the-world sailings that stop in dozens of exotic ports. We’ve been flooded with news from every cruise line about their 2013 voyages, and have identified our favorites to give you the scoop on the best of what’s offered.
At the top of our list is a journey perfect for those looking for an adventurous expedition. Silversea Cruises, known for its globe-circling voyages, will have its luxury Silver Explorer set sail for a first-ever trip toCanada’s Hudson Bay in August, leaving from Reykjavik, Iceland, and stopping in Greenland before reaching the Baffin Islands. Another standout from Silversea is the Silver Spirit’s month-long trip across the Pacific, to start in February, 2013, with stops in French Polynesia, the Republic of Kiribati, plus the Hawaiian Islands.
If you’re sold on a Silversea cruise, better act fast—they’re running a special promotion that ends February 15, 2012, for a 10% discount on select 2012 trips if you book a cruise for 2013. And we can’t help but mention another deal: Also aboard the Silver Spirit , luxury cruises toSouth America and Panama for January and February, 2012, include ashipboard credit of up to $1,500 per suite. That’s a sweet deal!
Speaking of Panama, one of our top destinations for 2012, Royal Caribbean has added 19 new sailings to the Panama Canal and theCaribbean for their winter 2012-2013 lineup. We’re zeroing in on their first-ever cruises to the Caribbean island of St. Vincent, for 11-night trips aboard Vision of the Seas, leaving from Ft. Lauderdale. There are four Panama sailings, also aboard Vision of the Seas, two for 14-nights, and two for 15-nights.

The Eiffel Tower, the Grand Canyon, the London Eye, Niagara Falls, the Trevi Fountain… a little googling confirms that these bastions of the beaten path rank high on the “top romantic travel destinations” or “best places to pop the question” lists that invariably pop up at this time of year. Of course these are all beautiful spots, embedded in our collective imaginations thanks in great part to movie magic–they are also devastatingly overrun.
Instead of seeking out a landmark as the backdrop for a romantic adventure, why not a good love story instead?
Each of these nine places harbors an irresistible legend of love or romance–even if you aren’t in seduction mode, they are worth a visit. If your motives are more sentimentally inclined, a trip like this might just seal the deal.
When you think of travel needs, think of M&M Airport and Car Service to get you there in style!

Domestic flights will take off beginning November 18, 2010. For the first time, PBI will have
non-stop flights to and from four convenient airports, perfect for those looking to travel with ease by avoiding gate changes and missed connections. Not too far from Chicago and close to the city’s Northwest and Northern suburbs, Rockford/Chicago, IL (RFD) is ideal for Chicagoland travelers. Buffalo/Niagara Falls, NY (IAG) is just a short drive from Toronto, Canada, perfect for those on either side of the border. Worchester, MA (ORH) is only about 50 miles west of Boston. And Kalamazoo, MI (AZO) serves much of western Michigan. Make reservations early to ensure you will be among the first to experience this new way to fly to Florida.
Caribbean travelers – Direct Air has something for you, too. Pack your carry-on and get ready for another stamp in your passport. Starting in December you can toss that beach bag in an over-head compartment and fly between PBI and San Juan, Puerto Rico (SJU) and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic (PUJ) for the first time ever.
