Hello clients and friends!

Welcome to 2018! The end of December tends to be fairly quiet in the office as everyone is busy with holiday preparations and celebrations, enjoying time with loved ones. But in January we jump right back into planning: Spring Break is just around the corner, and Summer will be upon us before we know it.
Planning ahead for your travel can be super important, especially if you have certain requirements to meet, whether it is inflexible dates (i.e., an event you are commemorating, or the kids are off of school), a location that is difficult to get to (i.e., flights in and out of Sitka, Alaska, always pose a challenge), or a firm budget amount (having plenty of time can allow us to secure competing quotes.)

While it is not possible to book flights more than 330 days in advance, did you know that the cruise lines already have their full 2019 deployments published, and many have itineraries available for the first quarter of 2020!?!?
If you are the kind of traveler who can plan that far in advance, or prefers to, you can get excellent pricing right now, essentially paying 2018 costs for a 2020 cruise. And you will certainly have your choice of cabins. Definitely something to consider!
On the other end of the spectrum are the people that can travel on the spur of the moment. Of course, this requires a certain amount of flexibility, whether it be in the dates, the destination, or the accommodation.

But if you are a traveler who enjoys impromptu adventures, especially at a good cost, we have started posting the last-minute cruise specials that we receive from the cruise lines. We usually get these on Monday or Tuesday, and sometimes they are only good for 48 hours! Or until the cabins sell out, of course.
Currently we are posting flash sales and last-minute specials for the following cruise lines:

These listings are updated as often as possible, but the cruise lines don't release these specials on a regular schedule, and sometimes they do sell out quickly. But if you are in the market for a last-minute getaway, please save the above links, and check on them frequently, on either Tuesday and Wednesday.
And if you're a "plan ahead" type of person... call us today and let's get started!

Thank you for reading to the end of our newsletter, we do appreciate it. We look forward to working with you this year. Please call us at 425-827-5656, we'd love to hear from you. Or simply reply to this email.
