Hotel and cruise ship reviews

One nice thing about opinions… everyone has one.  Here you will find ours.  In reading reviews on other sites I am often surprised by the ratings and comments people make.  What some people love other people hate.  What is important to some is not to others.  So with that being said all of these reviews here are by travel agents with a lot of travel experience so things that may upset an inexperienced traveler will often not phase us, so we do not comment on them.  We tend to look at the positive.  If you travel enough you will experience issues at one time or another.  The shower may not work or the A/C or a hotel employee may be rude, etc. etc.  Stuff happens… we chose not to let it ruin our vacation.  Also, the room (or cabin) is extremely important to some people but to us all we ask is that it be clean, quiet and reasonably comfortable and that service be good.  We stayed or toured the hotel, resort or cruise ship in all of these reviews.  Members of our staff have toured and visited far more places than what is listed here but the reviews are not ready to post yet or have been removed because they were outdated.  Ninety-nine percent of the photos shown in the reviews were taken by a member of our staff.  Many people have told us that the photos are better than those on the hotel’s or cruise ship’s own website.  That is because they are high resolution photos and are not faked or simulated like some sites.  These reviews are not meant to be a complete story but rather a quick overview with photos.  One more thing about traveler reviews… resorts that allow children and young adults tend to get lower rating than adult only properties during holidays and spring break.

There are many other websites that have reviews but just be careful. Sometimes the reviews are old and sometimes they are fake… both positive and negative. Also, keep in mind that most people who have a good time and get what they expected will not write a review. This means that many reviews will be those who were not satisfied or those whose expectations were exceeded so you may not get a totally accurate picture. And, of course, everyone’s expectations and tastes are different so keep that in mind when reading any reviews. Please do not hesitate to give us a call or email regarding any comments or questions you may have. We understand how important vacations are and we want your trip to be exactly what you want it to be and nothing less. Check back from time to time as we will continue to add reviews. In the meantime… happy traveling!
