  • Kilauea - The Greatest Show on Earth!
    Lava flow

    It’s for sure the greatest show on earth and there is nothing like being able to say that you have been there yourself! Of course, many travelers visit Hawaii’s Big Island just to witness Kilauea, and you should save a few days on your next trip to the islands just to see the most active and longest erupting volcano on the planet.

    What’s New in Cruising for 2006?

    For the culinary traveler, expanded dining choices and cuisine-based enrichment programs are now offered on several major cruise lines to better meet the needs of their passengers. Although the standard two-seating fixed tables are still available on most cruise lines, flexible dining options are also now available. Some of the preferred cruise lines offered by Incredible Journey and their expanded dining options are listed below.

      Ask Endora

      Dear Endora,

      Do you think it wise to get a passport now to travel to Mexico, even if it is not needed at the present time?

      Glen – California

      Dear Glen,

      Darling, it is so much easier to travel with a passport so my answer is emphatically YES, by all means get your passport now. In fact, 2005 was a banner year for passports. Remember passports will be needed for air and sea travel to the Caribbean, Mexico, Canada, Bermuda, the Bahamas and Panama by January 2007.

      Featured Property

      Among the most acclaimed resorts ever, it is a personal paradise for each guest. Las Ventanas has redefined luxury and pampering, reaching out with special touches that are the hallmark of refined hospitality.

      2006 Holiday Cruise
      Cruise Ship

      Here's your chance to witness the natural tropical beauty of the Hawaiian Islands on a fabulous 15 day hoilday cruise roundtrip from Los Angeles to the Hawaiian Islands aboard the luxurious Island Princess.

      Cruisin together on the Panama Canal

      Cruising is one of my favorite vacations, ever. It is a true escape from reality. First cruising appeals to everyone so whether you are traveling with friends, singles, couples, families, or business groups everyone is guaranteed to have a good time. Plus where else can you unpack once, and travel in the lap of luxury to exotic ports of call?

      This past May, my husband, my two sisters, my mother and I went on a fabulous 10 day cruise of the Panama Canal on the wonderful Island Princess. The Panama Canal is a must see, and is noted as one of the top ten manmade wonders of the new world. The history of the canal is not only a technological feat, but a story of human courage. As you pass through each lock you can only imagine the trials and tribulations these brave men and women had to endure to accomplish such a grueling task. All the while you are surrounded by the gorgeous beauty of Central America and the country of Panama.
