Deals and News
We've got a healthy roster of weeklong itineraries -- mostly to the Caribbean -- at rock bottom prices. The cheapest starts from just $299!
This week, the two airlines announced their intention to "combine" into Europe's largest airline company. Here's how it will affect you at the airport -- and in the wallet.
The newest, biggest ship is bested before it sets sail; NYC is becoming increasingly popular as a homeport; acupuncture and wholistic medicine are added to a cruiseline's offerings; and a brief roundup of gay cruises in this week's Cruise News.
Few fare sales cover the entire world. Then again, few airline alliances have the global reach of the United/Lufthansa combination, a partnership of two of the world's largest carriers.
Continental Journeys is offering five-day, air-inclusive weekend getaways from just $499 to either Bergen, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Oslo or Stockholm.

From Jane B.: "I hope to see Morocco someday, but after reading the Dept of State warnings - bombings in Casablanca last May, removal of Peace Corps volunteers - I decided to wait until it was safer. Imagine my surprise when I saw the recent newsletter promotion of Morocco tours. To promote visits and make no mention of such warnings seems somewhat irresponsible to me. Am I being unrealistic?"
From Craig Usas: "As presented by Frommers, the bankruptcy of 'Far and Wide' (a 'holding company for 21 well-known tour operators') raises fundamental questions [about tour operators and whether Americans should even travel]."
From Melissa Scheidt: "I am excited and nervous about planning our first family trip to Italy. We are going next June 2004 for 2 weeks. We absolutely want to see Rome, Venice, and Florence, and Pompeii, at least. My husband is the only one who has seen Italy, and that was 30 years ago. I'm not sure if we should take a packaged deal, a fully escorted tour, or a do-it-yourself trip. Please let me know about your family trip to Italy with teens, how you did it, and what do you wish you had done differently?"
Michelle P: "I am a resident of Page and have always believed in supporting our towns local business, but after the experience my family had with Doo Powell I advise anyone who is coming to Lake Powell and is going to rent a boat from them check the Better Business Bureau first."
From Carol Bellanti: "I have been reading discussions on the DR and am a little concerned about nude beaches. We are planning a trip to Punta Cana with our family and they wouldn't be comfortable with nude beaches. Are all the beaches clothing optional?"
From Teresa Ledbetter: "Yellowstone is truly a great winter destination. You forgot to add the west entrance statistics. A company called 4x4 Stage picks you up at the Bozeman Airport and takes you to West Yellowstone and there are a number of great hotels in that area also. Three Bear Lodge is where we always stay with snowmobiles right on site. Rates are cheaper than either of the other places you mentioned and the hotel rooms are cheaper, too."
