In part 5 of our series of postcards from abroad, Cruise Specialist host Tom Mullen has transitioned from time in the Far East to Australia! He’s traded in ancient artifacts for traditional folk art, dancing and outback exploration.
Above: “Enjoy looking at the art of the Northern territory. They have so much meaning to the art, especially sand painting designs.“
The final portion of this world cruise sent our guests and host to a bevy of beautiful tropical destinations, which Tom captured beautifully with these selected post cards from Fiji, Samoa and Hawaii.
Cruise Specialists hosted a special party for about 200 of our clients who were about to depart from Fort Lauderdale on Holland America Line’s Grand World Voyage. This is an amazing 114-day voyage around the world, which began on January 5, 2015.
The Cruise Specialists group will be entitled to special perks along the way and will benefit from the assistance of three voyage hosts who look after our guests throughout the trip.
There is a fairly wide variation among river cruise companies with regard to what is included in the cruise fare. Some companies are much more inclusive than others. Although, the trend in the industry is that more and more companies are offering all-inclusive fares; or, at the very least, including more in the base price of the cruise.
Regent Seven Seas cruise line is taking their on board education to a new level thanks to a partnership with the Smithsonian, creating The Smithsonian Collection.

From the moment our guests arrive in baggage claim they are met by transportation who whisks them off to the Renaissance Plantation Hotel for their free night stay prior to cruising. All of this is part of the services provided to Cruise Specialists World clients because we want to ensure every moment of the trip is stress-free, fun and friendly.
Where can solo travelers find the most favorable rates? We’ve compiled a list of companies that cater to solo travelers.
If you’re a solo traveler, you will likely want to know which river cruise companies offer the best rates for singles. After all, those companies count on at least two people occupying a room, and hence, double the revenue that would come from a cabin with only person occupying it.
Cruise Specialists works with a variety of luxury and premium cruise lines to provide our clients with the best in quality, service and value. Which is why we were once again delighted that our grand voyage cruise partner Holland America Line was voted “Best Overall Cruise Value” in 2014 by the World Ocean Cruise Liner Society!
When you name your newest river cruise ship after the Archduchess of Austria, you need to find a godmother fit for royalty. So Uniworld Boutique River Cruise Collection took things to the next logical step for their third and upcoming Super Ship, S.S. Maria Theresa: they announced a royal godmother.
Performing the time-honoured role of godmother for the S.S. Maria Theresa will be a direct descendant of Maria Theresa of the powerful Habsburg-Lothringen dynasty, Princess Anita von Hohenberg – the great-granddaughter of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and Duchess Sophie von Hohenberg.
