BIG NEWS! Europe to Reopen This Summer!

More great news comes today from the European Union as 27 member nations have endorsed the plan to allow foreign nationals who have been vaccinated in once again!  This is wonderful to see and will allow Americans to once again travel to Europe. 


Las Vegas Plans Return to Pre-Pandemic Guidelines Effective June 1st

Las Vegas lifts social distancing requirements June 1, 2021

From our friends at the Las Vegas Convention & Vistors Authority... 

The Clark County COVID-19 mitigation plan will expire June 1, allowing for the return of pre-pandemic guidelines that lift restrictions involving capacity limits, large gatherings, and more.
The new CDC guidance on masks recommends that those who are not vaccinated continue wearing masks and following social distancing and other precautions until fully vaccinated. The guidance allows fully vaccinated people to stop wearing face coverings in crowds and in many indoor locations
Additionally, masks still must be worn in hospitals and healthcare facilities and on planes, buses, trains, and other forms of public transportation traveling into, within, or out of the United States, and in transportation hubs such as airports and stations. More guidance about masks is on the CDC’s website at

BIG NEWS for Land Lovers & Cruise Lovers Alike!


This week has brought some wonderful news for the travel industry and economies the world over, to be sure.  In this pair of exciting articles, we find that Europe is set to reopen to vaccinated Americans this summer, AND the CDC has now said that cruising could most likely resume from US ports this July.  Both of these are wonderful and long overdue announcements!  Stay tuned for more as the news gets shared. I'm so excited to see travel ramping up as more and more countries begin to reopen or announce their pending reopenings. And it's been exciting to watch the cruise lines find ways to resume cruising worldwide, but even better to see that the US is finally coming around to allowing it from our ports as well.

FOR ANY CRUISERS COMFORTABLE AND READY TO SET SAIL AGAIN... LOOK WHAT SUMMER PROMISES. Both Royal Caribbean & Celebrity announced today that they will be setting sail beginning in JUNE from Nassau, Bahamas (Royal), and from St Maarten (Celebrity). And earlier in the week Crystal Cruises announced that they will be sailing starting in JULY from Nassau or Bimini, Bahamas as well!
Vaccinations are required for adults over 18 y.o. Reduced capacity on the ships. Call me for information.
With successful cruise sailings happening in other parts of the world since last fall, but the CDC still says no to cruises from US ports, it's nice to see how they thought outside the box! It's true that it might not be right for everyone, but with some resumption in service, it'll sure be nice for those crewmembers to be getting a paycheck again, and for the islands to start seeing their economies rebound as well.
If you are interested, reach out right away, as demand will be high.

Virtual Vacation Webinars - Viking Cruises

I've got some virtual vacation events coming up so please do mark your calendars and register for the events. Here are two upcoming events with VIKING CRUISES.

Wednesday, July 29th at 4 pm PDT / 7 pm EDT
Expeditions and Great Lakes!
THE GREAT LAKES ARE THE LARGEST FRESHWATER ECOSYSTEM ON THE PLANET. An iconic part of the geological and cultural heritage of North America, they contain nearly 23,000 cubic
kilometers of water—a full 21% of the world’s surface freshwater. After the last ice age 14,000 years ago, the power of the retreating Wisconsin ice sheet slowly chiseled and carved out immense
basins, forming the lakes. Today the ice sheet is gone, and these Great Lakes support a multitude of wildlife and are home to over 40 million people along their 10,000 mile long shores.
* * * * *
Wednesday, August 12th at 4 pm PDT / 7 pm EDT
The Caribbean:
FEEL THE WARM BREEZES OF THE CARIBBEAN and witness the scenic landscapes of South America. Enjoy spacious all veranda staterooms and abundant dining options, with more time in port and fewer days at sea, so you have ample time to explore. Your cruise fare includes alternative restaurant dining at no extra charge, 24-hour room service, and more.

Be sure to check out the other virtual vacation events in separate posts on my page, including The Galapagos with Celebrity Cruises, and more to come.
