Lost Luggage – Do You Know Your Rights?

On my recent trip I was checking in online and saw that I could upgrade to 1st class for $50. Yes, please. Great flight, loved stretching out and getting water in a “real’ glass. It was all so nice after heading to the airport at 4am.  Head to baggage claim, watch as everyone on my flight gets their bag, but NO bag for me.  What??  How can that be?   My friend who checked her bag at the same time got her bag. OK, keep calm, it will be on the next flight.   Right?

Want to Skip Those Airport Security Lines?

Since I do fly several times throughout the year both domestically and internationally I really should have signed up by now for Global Entry and TSA PreCheck.  Every time I am waiting in a long line at security I end up regretting it, and make a pledge that I am signing up when I get home.  So after my last trip and almost missing my flight because of the long security line,  I finally decided to get signed up and end the madness and frustration.  I want to be that person whisked to the “short line” where I do not have to take off my shoes, belt and can keep my liquids.  I will quickly get through security as I glance over at all the miserable “other” travelers in that LONG and never ending line as I smile to myself and make my way to Starbucks to wait in their line.   Read more

Why Cruising is a GREAT Family Vacation Option!

If you are still thinking about getting away for the holidays, I think a cruise is a GREAT vacation option for families and couples. In the last few years we have seen more new and bigger ships so that means more space and better pricing for the holidays.

Why is cruising a GREAT vacation option?  First, they are a great value. You have your food, activities and room all included in the price. As well, you and the family can explore more than one destination and unpack only one time. Even more, a cruise can offer something for everyone in the family; great kids clubs, babysitting, pools and water slides, great destinations, adult only areas and more.
