JetSet Experiences: The Atlantis Resort, Bahamas

The weather is warming up, school is out and we have the next couple of months to revel in summer.  Why not consider a destination that offers fun for the whole family: The Atlantis on Paradise Island in the Bahamas.  With plenty of direct flights into the new airport, beachfront property and a plethora of accommodation options, you and the family can snorkel in the lagoon, float the lazy river, tube through the shark tank or even become a dolphin trainer for a day.  And if you need some time to yourself, enroll the kids in the Atlantis Kids Adventures Camp and soak up some sun at Cain, the adult only area complete with poolside cabanas and a DJ.

*JetSet Tip: Don’t forget to make a reservation at Nobu, and enjoy their signature menu items including Crispy Rice with Spicy Tuna and a Lychee Martini.

The entire Jet Set team just returned from three fun-filled days on Paradise Island; ask us for more information!

JetSet Experiences: River Cruising

River cruising became acheter viagra paris 25 mg fastest growing sector in travel in 2012, with lines like Viking launching six new longships in 2013.  However, the rivers of the world have long been a conduit of commerce and the primary source of movement across continents.  This is clearly pronounced by the fortified villages and crumbling castles as you meander up the Danube through Austria stopping for a spellbinding, behind-the-scenes tour of the Melk Abbey or sampling the finest Gruner Veltliner from family cellars predating WWII.

In the summer months, Europe comes alive and its rivers take you where large cruise ships cannot go: through landscapes carefully preserved and far removed from modern cities.  The most picturesque corners of Europe are prominently displayed. Guests onboard easily embrace a slower pace and serenity from the stillness that comes from sailing through quiet eddies as opposed to ocean swells.

Our various river cruise partners offer a distinct and unique onboard experience, with a variety of designs, amenities, inclusions and shore excursions, ensuring that there is a river cruise for each personality. Our favorite experience allows the more active traveler to bike through the countryside alongside the vessel as it relocates.

Winter, spring, summer or fall and spanning Asia, Europe,  South America and Africa – river cruising offers a timeless sense of discovery. To chart your next river cruise experience, please contact Julia Douglas: julia@jetsetworldtravel.com

 

JetSet Experiences: Expedition Cruising

Sometimes it is the unexpected that turns a good vacation into an extraordinary experience. This may seem contradictory coming from travel advisors who intricately plan every detail of an itinerary, however, on Lindblad Expeditions natural occurrences cannot be rehearsed!

Though the Expedition Leaders design an itinerary for each day of the cruise, the best days onboard are when they throw out the plan because you just encountered a pod of orcas or a group of humpback whales. These serendipitous moments cannot be anticipated, but happen often as Lindblad strategically centers their cruise itineraries in the most naturally rich areas of the world.  The small ships easily access environments that whales, bears, sea lions, penguins, seals, polar bears, and birds, to name a few, call home.  And due to the limited number of passengers, this affords an extremely intimate experience.

Nighttime entertainment, casinos, and buffets for miles are best found elsewhere.  Though Lindblad does serve world class food, the ‘special of the day’ is always active outdoor educational experiences.  The National Geographic specialist’s educational lessons deepen passengers’ experiences each day and raise awareness of their surrounding environment creating a lasting impact and indelible impression.

From waking up to 100,000 pairs of penguins in Antarctica to falling asleep to the polar bears in the Arctic, Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic deliver riveting experiences from pole to pole.
