Destination: Hawaii!

Destination: Hawaii!

As a travel professional and owner of Special Moments Travel in Northeast Tarrant County, it is my responsibility to learn as much as possible of a destination that I sell frequently.  I have been to the 4 major Hawaiian Islands on a cruise, I’ve done my Hawaii Destination Specialist courses, and I have to admit, I liked it but I wasn’t IN LOVE with it.  When GOGO Vacations offered me an opportunity to go to Honolulu for a learning conference, I decided to give Hawaii another chance.  Am I ever glad I did! My trip there on Delta Airlines was...

Couple Returns Sandals Halcyon Beach in St. Lucia

We had a wonderful time, thanks for everything.  We also thank you for the surprise gift after we got home. I can’t think of anything you could have done to make it a better trip, except to let the days be longer…… alas. Thanks again for the help with the airline tickets at the end. Here’s a few pics. The view from the room…we were 70 feet from the sand. Mike measured. Thanks again,...

Amazing Jamaica!

Amazing Jamaica!

    Amazing Jamaica! Words can’t explain how amazing Jamaica was to us! It was beautiful and we loved every second of it! I definitely wasn’t ready to come home to this nasty weather we are having. Jewel Paradise Cove was picture perfect. The staff was amazing, everyone was super nice, we felt welcome wherever we went. It was the perfect size, not a huge resort but also not too small. There were always chairs right on the beach available and never any lines. The food was yummy and they certainly didn’t water down the drinks!...

Cozumel Trip Fun with Added Adventure

  Cozumel Trip Fun with Added Adventure Kudos to my clients, Mike and Ashley, who had more adventure than they planned. See what happened to them:Even with the rain every day, and the flooded hotel room, getting sick on the ferry and check out incident… we still had a BLAST! The room was great, service was wonderful, food was decent for room service and wonderful for the restaurants. We were able to see Cozumel, Playa del carmen, and Cancun in one trip. We got to float the river and snorkel at Xcaret (rain had everything else...

Family Sails Mediterranean on Princess Cruise Line

Family Sails Mediterranean on Princess Cruise Line It was lovely! Not relaxing, very very busy and fast paced but awesome- we saw ALLLLLLL the things :). I’d have liked another day or two in Rome. Malta was unexpectedly lovely and Messina was kind of so-so. The boat was wonderful, service impeccable. We will be doing another Princess cruise for sure. You did an amazing job. The only thing I would have changed was more time in Istanbul and Rome and Capri (we did a tour and it was rushed). I also would have liked a smaller, more private...

Multi-Generational Family Has Fun on Cruise

Multi-Generational Family Has Fun on Cruise Our trip was amazing after we unloaded the family at the terminal we made it to the lot early the shuttle came straight to our cars and picked us up right at our driver-side doors.

I mean it took us no longer than 15 to 20 minutes to go from the shuttle to the...

Four Great Travelers Return from Princess Alaskan Cruise

Four Great Travelers Return from Princess Alaskan Cruise

Hi Bette, Thanks for everything– we had a marvelous trip. EVERYTHING was perfect. Our flight from DFW to Fairbanks was long but great. The train trip from Fairbanks to Denali was the best— our group had a glass covered coach and only about 1/2 full. We could walk around, visit with folks, eat and enjoy the scenery. Esteva loved the train ride. We saw very large moose. PERFECT. Our coach ride was only 1/2 full –lots of room for out bags, coats, etc. The Princess hotels were lovely—food was something great and sometimes...

Couple celebrates their anniversary at Secrets St. James, Montego Bay, Jamaica

Our trip was amazing! We loved everything about Jamaica, from the beautiful beaches to the amazing food. The accommodations were wonderful, the staff was very sweet and helpful. The resort was gorgeous and very quiet and relaxing. We loved the fact that it wasn’t crowded and it was easy to get drinks and food. The food was delicious, they had so many options for me being a vegetarian and lots of different varieties. The only thing I would differently is stay longer! Next time we go on a trip it will definitely be longer. The only that I...

Cabo San Lucas Hidden Treasures

  Cabo San Lucas Hidden Treasures As I sat next to a beautiful infinity pool overlooking a golf course in front of the ocean, I was in awe of this amazing destination.  This is Secrets Puerto Los Cabos (all-inclusive, couples resort), and I was there for destination wedding training with AMResorts.  Last night, after our arrival earlier in the day, I had a wonderful Mexican dinner with travel professionals from across America as well as my Business Development Manager (BDM) of AMResorts, and the Sales Manager of the soon to open...

Couple Returns from Anniversary in Sandals Ochi Beach in Ocho Rios, Jamaica

Hello!!! You were just the person I wanted to talk to!! I wanted to thank you for such an amazing trip. We had a blast, it was gorgeous! First off, our room was incredible. I would say with our personalities, I’m so glad we were on the beach side and not the hillside. Not that there was anything wrong with the hillside, it was quite spectacular as well, but we love! love! to have views of the ocean. We were much more active with this trip than St. Lucia, they had great events each night and we met 3 other couples we are quite fond of....
