BOOK WITH OUR TRAVEL AGENCY
Panama Canal cruises are offered in the fall, winter and spring only. We have Panama Canal cruises that depart and
return to Fort Lauderdale or Miami roundtrip. The roundtrip Panama Canal cruises run either 10 or 11 days. Holland
and Princess have run these for many winters but this year other lines also runroundtrip Panama Canal in the winter.
We also offer full Panama Canal Cruises that usually depart in Miami or Fort Lauderdale and end in Los Angeles or
San Diego. Most full Panama Canal cruises are 14 days or more. Some run all winter, but many are re-positioning
cruises when we take Miami/Fort Lauderdale ships to the west coast for summer work in Alaska. These might end in
Los Angeles but many of them can go on to Seattle or Vancouver on a one way basis. Most of the cruise lines move
ships from South Florida to the west coast to work the summer in Alaska and back in the fall.
Cruise ships move around a lot so we see more “repositioning” cruises than you can imagine. They come to Florida
to snowbird in the fall from Europe and Alaska but they go back again in the spring. Transatlantics tend to have at
least a week at sea and don’t make more than 3 or 4 ports of call. You have to really like cruising as you are in blue
water as they call it.
They also follow the seasons to South America and Australia/New Zealand. South American sometimes depart from
both the West Coast and East Coast but the Australia New Zealand usually depart from California and cruise through
Hawaii and Tahiti or Fiji. Cruise lines change home ports for ships which also create opportunities for one-time
Long Specialty Cruises
Many cruise lines like Holland, Cunard and Princess have niche markets in world cruising. These are sold in their
entirety (usually 180 days) but more often, people buy them in segments of 30 to 60 days. Ask us about Europe
without flying from Fort Lauderdale. Usually once per winter we see, Amazon/Caribbean/South America that is also
roundtrip FLL. Circumnavigation of Australia and New Zealand or California to Hawaii, Tahiti and Marquesas?
Many cruise lines can cruise to Hawaii but only one major cruise line has an American flagged vessel that can cruise
the Islands… Norwegian. Many of the other cruise lines offer one way and round trip from California to fill time
between Alaska and South Florida. These are pretty inexpensive but are a partial trans-pacific cruises that have 3 or
4 sea days each way and a stop in Ensenada to satisfy the Jones act on the way home. We do handle Hawaii
cruises including airfare.
Our travel agency books all kinds and brands of Alaska cruises. Alaska cruises start about mid May and run until the
3rd week of September. Many ships run roundtrip from Seattle or Vancouver for seven nights. Other ships run 7 day
northbound and southbound cruises between Anchorage (Seward or Whittier) and Vancouver. Our travel agency can
put together a complete package with airfare, airport transfers, hotels, National Park tours, train tickets in Alaska.
Usually clients will do the roundtrip Alaska crusies from Vancouver or Seattle unless they are adding land packages
in Alaska. Some of these trips can be combined with a pre stay in Seattle, Vancouver or travel through the Canadian
Rockies or California.
If you have ten nights or more for Alaska travel and want to experience Denali National Park, Kenai Fjords National
Park, Anchorage, Seward, Talkeetna or Fairbanks we offer 10 to 14 night packages including a 7 night northbound or
southbound Alaska cruise. We sell all of the cruise lines land/sea programs plus we feature custom Alaska Railroad
packages with any cruise line.
In the summer, many cruise ships depart from England, Copenhagen or Germany. These ships sail around the
British Isles and Ireland plus they go the scandinavian countries up to St. Petersburg Russia. These make great
opportunities to put together land/sea vacations with London, Paris, Amsterdam, Sweden, Norway and Germany.
Our travel agency handles the cruise, your air transportation and ground packages including train tickets or intra-tour
The Mediterranean region for cruises usually gets broken into Eastern and Western Mediterranean. Eastern
Mediterranean usually includes Greece and Greek Isles, Italy, Turkey, Croatia and Malta. Sometimes they are
extended for a few rotations and add the Holy Land and Egypt. Western Mediterranean is usually Spain, France,
Italy and their islands. We sell a LOT of Mediterranean cruises so we are familiar with the cruise ports and land tour
opportunities you can add to your cruise. (Editor’s note: Eastern Med. cruises have ports Turkey, Egypt and Holy
Land that cruise lines may “close” depending on ground situation at the time. Remember that ports of call are always
subject to change to keep you safe.)
This is one of the newest areas for cruise shipping. Most of the ships sail between Singapore, Japan, Vietnam and
Shanghai China. We offer Asian cruises including land/sea vacations from the cruise lines plus independent travel
and land tours that can be combined with these unique ports of call.
