And we are – in a manner of speaking – thanks to a feature article I wrote that appears in today’s Seattle Times Travel Section.
|Tahiti's Black Sand Beaches were as spectacular as the views from them|
There’s no better time than now to start shopping for some great cruise deals. I tell you where to look for them in the package of articles about repositioning cruises I wrote for the Seattle Times today.
|Pape'ete our first port of call as seen from our Celebrity Solstice ship|
There are exotic ports of call to be discovered inexpensively from the ease and comfort of a cruise ship on what the industry calls a repositioning cruise; when ships are moved from one part of the world to another for a new season of sailing.
That was the type of cruise we took last fall on the Celebrity Solstice, a cruise that introduced us to French Polynesia, New Zealand and Australia. (In fact the reverse of that cruise, 18 days, is only $2,400 per person on one of the sites I list in the article.)
As part of the package I wrote I’ve provided a list of great money-saving web sites to use when booking (or researching) a cruise.
And a list --that’s designed to tempt those in the Pacific Northwest in particular -- of some great repositioning cruises – ranging from overnighters to 30+ days that will arrive and in the fall, depart from Seattle or Vancouver, British Columbia
