Pretty Good Deal :: Now Onyx Punta Cana

The Now Onyx Punta Cana will open in November, 2013.

 

They are having a sale for $99 per night.

 

I try to find stuff like this because you can find pretty good pre-sales.

 

I really like the family of Zoetry, Secrets, Dreams, Le Blanc and Now resorts.  The problem is they are on the expensive side because they are really nice.

 

The website was entirely unhelpful in terms of when the vacation had to be booked by and when the…

All Inclusive Hand Sanitizer Strategy

If you invested in an all inclusive vacation this year, make sure you are healthy for it.

 

There are serious flu and norovirus outbreaks going around.

 

Use liberal amounts of hand sanitizer at work and around the home.

 

You really don't want to get sick!

 

It is bad enough just being sick, but going to the airport for a dream vacation while sick would be terrible.

I can't even think about cancelling a dream…

Frugal Traveler Gets It Wrong On Review Sites

The Frugal Traveler from the New York Times is not a fan of review sites.

 

A recent article admits many of the great things about review sites, but ends with the idea that we should ignore review sites in favor of asking locals when we arrive at our destinations.

 

That is simply wrong.

 

I still ask locals when I get there, but I'm not about to abandon review sites.

 

Most of us work all year for that week or two of vacation…

Royal Caribbean All Inclusive Cruise Packages Not All Inclusive

You still have to buy water.

 

That makes no sense to me.

 

The all inclusive packages are fairly expensive anyway and you can't even get a drink of water?

 

The minibar items are also not included.

 

Someone needs to stand up for the term all inclusive.

 

Royal Caribbean should find a different term.

I'm Dreaming Of A White Sand Christmas

I really need a vacation.

It is getting cold where I live which has me thinking of ways to escape.

I could go to the Rose Bowl and watch my beloved Badgers beat Stanford.

The only problem is it was cold the last time I went to the Rose Bowl.

I need somewhere really warm which has me thinking about Mexico and the Caribbean.

It has been too long since I was last sitting in an all inclusive resort sipping on…

All Inclusive Timeshares And Vacation Clubs As Investments

 

Most of us start by looking for the perfect all inclusive vacation and end up getting pitched at some point to join a timeshare or vacation club.  The worst part is the pitch often comes while we are on vacation in a three hour tour many of us take in exchange for some type of perk or free gift. 

 

My basic philosophy is that no major investments should be made after a three hour sales pitch.  The rushed sales process is your first clue that you are being asked to make…

All Inclusive Family Cruise Options

I have been looking into family all inclusive resort options for a family vacation next winter. I have found a few good options, but I saw an ad for an all inclusive cruise and that caught my interest.



The problem is that the all inclusive cruise was only for adults.



Does anyone know if there are all inclusive cruise options for families?



My other problem is I have never been on a cruise before. I have heard that the bar and extras tab can add up quickly. When… Continue
