Looking at the nasty weather hitting the US East coast over the past few weeks I am so happy I chose not to book a fall cruise up the coast (yes I just said I was happy I did not book a cruise). I really have been too busy anyway with making wine and more so just as well. Plus look how busy the week that went by was:

I have never ever seen Delta folks, across the nation, as mad as they are right now with the published changes to access the Sky Clubs as well as the obliteration of the Medallion program. The one tiny bright spot could have been earning MQDs on cruises via Delta Vacations. But here are the facts on the matter from Chris.

Should you book a balcony cabin vs. an interior room? While an interior is the cheapest way to go, and you still get the same perks onboard as everyone else, it may not be the best call for first time cruisers. Take a look why.

Most folks on vacation do not think much about safety but they really should. Michael has a great post covering some of the most visited ports in the Caribbean and worth a review.

Our Royal Caribbean expert MJ has a great post about an interesting new option from RCI regarding adults ONLY private island enclave. I like this idea.

Lastly Michael covers something I had never heard about, that is, ResortPass. There are some ports I have been to a number of times and I think this is brilliant. Check it out.

Have a great weekend everyone and if you are looking for new travel cards all of us “onboard” the blog really thank you for using our links at the top of the blog (or side if on a phone)! – René
