Finding cheap accommodation in Croatia Feb 28

If you are looking for a new place to explore consider spending your vacation in Croatia which is rapidly becoming one of the most popular tropical spots in Europe. I absolutely loved the time that I spent there this past summer. They have many things to offer ranging in accommodations, dining, attractions and of course breathtaking sights.

I really enjoyed my accommodation in Croatia which made me feel as though I was royalty. The luxury villas found here may be a bit pricey but they are worth every dollar that I spent on it. I was given my own personal chef, personal driver and even a full maid service that was on call as I needed them. If you are on a budget there are less expensive options such as the cheap villas or the holiday villas. They each have something unique to offer and depending on your budget you may be lucky enough to get a room close to the water. I loved waking up in the morning and being able to look out my window at the sight of sandy beaches and crystal clear water. Since I love to swim and surf this was a great vacation choice for me.

Super Yachts in Australia and the South Pacific-A business paradigm Feb 14

Super yachts and Australia are a natural match. Australia’s huge coast and the surrounding islands are a perfect environment for big, fast luxurious yachts. Super yachts in Australia can combine all the beauty of South Pacific cruises with a vast range of sailing options and sights. This is also the right market for experienced operators who understand the tourist industry and know how to manage high capital investment operations.

Super Yachts in the Australian market

Australia is very much a nation on the water, when it gets the slightest chance.

There are two basic markets for Super Yachts:

The luxury market: In Australia, this is a very big market, and many of Australia’s yachts are top of the range. The yachting industry as a whole is very strong, with good services and support around the coast.

The tourist market: Australia’s gigantic, multi billion dollar tourist industry is highly competitive, and nowhere more so than in the cruise sector. This sector services the entire industry, and is perhaps unique in the world, in that it services an entire continent, and four different oceans.

Hire a Yacht and Escape the Cold This Winter Feb 10

For those that are tired of standing under the patio heater during the winter trying to keep warm what better way to explore some of the world’s warmer destinations than by yacht? Everybody feels a little down when winter comes along and the temperature drops. The days start getting longer and you end up spending a lot more time inside or standing under a patio heater when you do venture outdoors.

Black Sea Discovery Feb 03

Overall the river cruise was excellent, if rather hectic at times in order to cram all the excursions in, and we met lots of very nice fellow travellers from different parts of the world.  Food and service was very good, as were the organised tours. The standard of local guides was generally good.  What struck us, having been on similar cruises, was how quiet and free from vibration the ship, MS Tranquillity, was.  This was most important as most of the cruising was done at night.

The optional Folklore Dinner in Budapest was excellent, and in stark contrast to that in Bucharest (see below).

There were some downsides:

– The dining and bar lounge areas were quite cramped even though we were told the ship was not full.

– The optional Folklore Dinner in Bucharest was a bit of a disaster – poor service, very average food and the wine tasting suffered from a lack of wine!

There was also a scarcity of wine with the meal.
