Dear Reader,

Pat Ellington, MCC, certified Sandals specialist and Caribbean destination specialist, just returned from a wonderful visit to Sandals Grande Ocho Rios Golf and Spa Resort in Jamaica.

One of the highlights of her trip was swimming with dolphins in Ocho Rios. Of course she was able to tour and visit several Sandals and Beaches properties while in Jamaica. When asked which was the best resort she saw, she candidly replied, "Without a doubt the Royal Plantation in Ocho Rios. It was simply stunning."

Make sure you contact Pat if you feel like exploring the many islands of the Caribbean or want to know what makes Sandals so poplular.

  • Family Fun at Sea
    River Cruise

    Have you ever thought of having a family reunion? Family reunions make for rewarding vacations, especially when they’re centered on a cruise ship. Planning a reunion can be a big undertaking, but timing is most important. Beginning to plan a reunion a year in advance is a good timetable. Reunions held during school breaks or summer vacation work well for all age groups.

    Cruise ships are floating resorts in every sense of the word and are a natural venue for reunions, as there is “something for everyone to do.” Because there are several cabin categories to choose from, having a reunion on a cruise ship also accommodates different budgets.

    I am traveling to Tahiti and am not sure about tipping or how to get the best exchange rate for US currency.

    Merrie Monarch Festival

    “Hula is the language of the heart, and therefore the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people." David Kalakaua, King of Hawaii, 1874 to 1891
    Most of us who travel frequently to Hawaii are enthralled with the culture, the people, the music and dance that are unique to the islands. Did you know that there is a week long annual event that commemorates the true history and culture of the ancient Hawaiians that takes place in Hilo beginning on Easter Sunday?
