Greetings!

As a new year begins we want to take a moment to thank you for the opportunity to serve you.

We are excited to announce new vacation options for 2019.

Now is the best time to get exactly what you want and secure the best price.

Travel is uniquely personal. Perhaps this is your year to embark on that long awaited family cruise, celebrate your romance, venture to one of the world's culinary capitals, or take a deep dive into the life and culture of one of the world’s greatest destinations. What's on your bucket list?

The team at Holiday Cruises & Tours wish you and yours peace, joy and prosperity throughout the coming year.

OUR TRAVEL JOURNAL
Cuba Cruise Adventure
Hosted by Chynell Jefferson
Earlier this Fall, Chynell Jefferson along with 20 of Holiday Cruises & Tours travelers departed on a most anticipated Cuba Cruise Adventure aboard Royal Caribbean’s Majesty of the Seas. The group traveled via private motorcoach to Tampa, Florida with an overnight in Ybor City to start their Cuba fun. The evening was enjoyed by an authentic Cuban dinner at the famed Columbia Restaurant. 

The next day the group boarded the ship with unknown expectations of what they would experience. Majesty of the Seas crew were fantastically efficient in providing information about sightseeing in Cuba, immigration process, money exchange, souvenir shopping (most popular- rum, cigars and coffee) and best ways to maximize the 24 hours the ship was docked in Havana. 
Our group was pleasantly surprised about the vibrancy of the city with colorful display of Spanish architecture. Definitely a city untouched by time with the classic American cars, happy locals eager to share their stories, and the iconic rhythmic music heard throughout the city.  In between the group guided tours of historical sites, there was the flexibility to wander on our
own - some decided to take a ride on the Hop On/Hop Off bus, explore the intriguing jazz lounges or people watch at the outdoor cafés while enjoying the signature mojitos. 

To sum up this trip, travelers can expect to immerse themselves in the island’s charm and explore a place where yesterday lives today. A recommended place to visit for the history, culture, museums, cuisine and architecture. VIVA LA CUBA!

Traversing the Peruvian Amazon
with International Expeditions
Posted by Maria Angeles 
Seeing the Amazon is one of those top 10 experiences of your life and International Experiences makes sure you have a memorable time. I had the privilege to travel with International Expeditions July 2018, we had a few days of epic Amazonian rain and I was beyond content. From the time you arrive to Lima, every component of your trip is carefully taken care of so all you have to worry about is taking in every single detail of your surroundings. You get treated to delectable meals, tour through Iquitos just before you embark on the Zafiro and delve into the Amazon!

Going aboard your floating home for the week is like you’d been there all along because everyone has already learned your name. Your room’s view is the lush Amazon with floor to ceiling windows so you never even think twice about not having a TV. Experiencing the Amazon begins from day one when you get to go out on the river and getting out there doesn’t mean you’re exploring on your own. Each zodiac is equipped with refreshing drinks, cold towels and two amazing naturalists to help you spot the wildlife. It really takes that experienced eye and ear to find you the animals you went there to see with your own eyes.
