Nestled in the South Island of New Zealand, Queenstown has numerous activities for travelers. Although there is plenty to do, Queenstown is most known for its hiking. There are nearly a dozen hikes in town and even more right outside. If travelers are more experienced, the Queenstown Hill hike takes about three hours round trip and will get hearts pumping. On the other hand, the Sunshine Bay walking track is an easier one-hour hike that offers views of Sunshine Bay’s beautiful waters.
Don’t consider last minute travel for high demand dates (March Break, Xmas, Spring Break) the selection and availability will be minimal at best and what is available won’t be discounted.
Using a travel agent is always a good idea because travel agents have access to all of the best deals that the cruise lines have to offer. Cruise lines buddy up to travel agents, similar to the way pharmaceutical salesmen buddy up to doctors. They give travel agents the best deals first in order to make their clients happy, which in turn sends more business the way of the cruise line from that agent.
Price Compare the cruise line to travel agencies. Prices are generally the same whether you go through a travel agency or book through the cruise line itself BUT a travel agency may have an incentive (such as an on board credit/free hotel stay) that a cruise line will not have. Sometimes the cruise line will have an on board credit that it will offer that a travel agency does not. Also, sometimes there are special incentives for booking online with the cruise line vs. over the phone. A good travel newsletter, such as Sherman’s Travel Deals (FREE to signup) can keep you alerted on the best cruise deals that are available online (sometimes up to 70% off) that are not readily advertised by the cruise lines and/or travel agencies.
Romantic trips are also a great way to reignite the flames, the emotions and the passion, put aside because of the work, family, stress, etc. It is the perfect opportunity to think of nothing else but how to relax and to enjoy yourselves and the lovely place you have chosen to visit.
But if this is your first time to do so, here are some tips that you could consider. Don’t worry, if you have a computer and you know how to use Microsoft Word (or it is the only thing that you know how to use), then you are on your way to becoming a brochure designer.
On the more practical side of the equation, a men’s valet is also a practical piece of furniture in your dressing room, your wife can hang the matching pieces of your clothes on it for you to make sure that what you’re wearing goes well together. The men’s valet can get pricey, but a good one will last you a lifetime, and you can hand them down to your heirs. These also make good gifts to make you and the recipient feel like John D. Rockafeller.
If it was a warm day you could put your swimsuit on and hang out and have some drinks at the pool bar. They also had the Sarape Bar and the Koori Bar. If alcohol is not for you, you could head over to the Health Bar that served a variety of blended juices and some tasty salads for lunch. They also offer massages here for an extra fee. But it is worth it because you are lying right outside looking at the water!
