TEMPTING CRUISE THIS FALL

American Cruise Lines launches 14-day Misissippi River cruise

What better way to see the fall foliage than on a river cruise down the Mississippi?

American Cruise Lines yesterday announced a new 14-night Grand Heartland Cruise from St. Paul, Minnesota, to Memphis, Tennessee, stopping in 13 cities along the way.

ACL offer six other Mississippi River cruise itineraries, though until now, all have been seven nights. But many passengers were doing back-to-back cruises, and the company wanted to “save them a bit of money and package in some extras, like a free hotel night,” says spokesperson Britt Rabinovici.

The Mississippi cruises have been growing in popularity, she notes. “There’s something about the Mississippi that’s romantic, that’s all-American. And the paddlewheeler adds to the old-fashioned appeal and makes it a very different experience.”

The cruise departs on October 26, 2013, aboard the Queen of the Mississippi, the first new paddle river boat built in the past 20 years.

ACL has 35 river-cruise itineraries across the country. It has another paddlewheeler under construction slated for 2014.

ACL partners with travel agents around the world, offering a tiered commission structure and fam trips.

Galapagos cruise canceled June 2

Galapagos sea lion, Galápagos Islands, Ecuador

Frozen lobster dispute costs Celebrity its Galapagos cruise

” I posted this for travelers to understand why you should buy air transportation with your cruise – please read on”

A dispute over frozen lobster tails has temporarily cost Celebrity Cruises its permit to operate in the Galapagos National Park, and forced the cancellation of the June 2 sailing of the Celebrity Xpedition.

Celebrity acknowledged in a statement that it was cited by The Galapagos National Park for transporting 12 kilograms of frozen lobster tails that were out of season.

Celebrity Xpedition’s license to enter the Galapagos National Park was suspended for 45 days and the line was fined.

Celebrity will provide guests with a full refund of the monies paid for the cruise plus 50% future cruise credit, as well as pay for airline change fees. Air transportation booked through Celebrity Cruises will be refunded in full. (This true in most cases)

Celebrity apologized in the statement, noting it “is committed to complying with the rules and regulations of the Galapagos, which are put in place to protect and safeguard this unique and pristine environment.”

While it anticipates that its license to sail in the Galapagos “will be restored shortly, the situation is still fluid,” the statement said. “We will be contacting guests booked on the June 9 to provide them with the most updated information.”
