Norwegian Cruise Line

Norwegian Cruise Lines are 4.5 star rated which places them nicely between Carnival Cruise Line (4 star) and a number of five star lines.  Cruisers enjoy dining whenever they want on Norwegian at the abundant dining facilities all over the ship!  For a little bit more money you can dine in their specialty restaurant, which other cruisers report is fantastic. This line is also known to be great for kids and adults, with cruises that go to Hawaii and all around the world!

Cruising To Europe In The Fall

Cruising to Europe in the fall is a wonderful idea for several reasons! Normally the rates are lower, the locals have more time to spend with you, and the climate is milder. One of  the reasons to book at this time of year is the rate has a chance to drop even though you may have just paid your deposit or even if your paid in full.

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 painting 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!
