Reason To Book Your Next Cruise With an Agent – When a “Deal” is Not a Deal at All

Please take note that some airlines, i.e., Continental, are offering cruise deals along with inexpensive airfares.  DON’T BE FOOLED.  People are being quoted $45/night for balcony staterooms, etc.  In actuality, they end up with the least expensive stateroom on the least expensive cruise.  The balcony stateroom was really $117/day, but this wasn’t fully expressed in the fine print.  Bottom line – never book a cruise through an airline.  Booking through an agent (www.artofcruising.com) could have eliminated all of this!

Stockholm Sweden

While staying in a Best Western in Stockholm, Sweden I pondered the difference from our culture to theirs.  Wonderful examples of the differences were in my room.  Missing were the common themed prints from American hotels and in their place was a fancy panting with a wild light wrapped around it.  Additionally I found a mini-library, stocked with over thirty books.  Can you image waking up and have thirty library books in your very room?  Not lacking modern comforts, the room also had a DVD player and television.   Visit Stockholm and the Best Western.  I highly recommend it!
