Let’s start with a romantic 3 day Cruise on the Star Princess. Your Cruise starts at the San Pedro docks in Los Angeles and goes north for 3 nights ending up in Vancouver BC. The Cruise leaves on the 29th of November. The base price of the Cruise at Cruisedirect.com is $129. The Star Princess is a 4.5 rated cruise liner but this trip should be a great getaway. The base cost is $129 for the 3 nights on the cruise ship, the tax are $55 each and the total for two passengers is $368. Don’t forget that you will also have ~ $75 tipping fee. You will get into Vancouver around 7:30 AM and there are flights back to LA for as little as $105 on Orbitz. You could spend a little more cash on some hidden extras like UBER, alcohol or an extra day in Vancouver but all in all you can sneak away for around $700 for three days, that’s a nice short Geezer deal.
If you’re ready to do a little European adventure, this is the shoulder season in Europe and a good time to travel. If you’re going to Europe the big cost is the hop across the Pond. Right now the three big European discounters are flying from the United States to certain European destinations for less then $400 RT in economy all most every day from dozens of destinations. In this article we are show casing the Boston to Brussels flight for $250 on WOW airlines but there are lots of great deals that will get you across the Atlantic. Once you are in Europe the discount airlines have dropped the intercontinental flights down to the point where a flight between many destinations may cost less than the UBER from the airport to your timeshare or hotel. Our article on “Cherry Picking ” will help you find these amazing deals.
Cruises in Asia that are reasonable are rare. The Sapphire Princess is offering a 15 day cruise from Singapore to 9 destinations and then back to Singapore. This Cruise departs from Singapore on December the 15th 2017 and will be a great way to explore South East Asia. The Base price for the Cruise is $1099 pp and the tax and fees is an additional $220 pp bringing the cost up to $2638.00 for two people for 15 days. That’s a little more than we usually like to see for these kinds of Cruises but when you consider the itinerary it’s a good deal. We checked flights Flights from LAX to Singapore and found that you could fly on Xaiman Airlines for $691 RT pp if you fly on December the 11th and return on the 31st. That would give you 3 days in Singapore. We have never flown Xaiman Airlines but on Skytrax it rated a solid 3 stars and the economy seats on their long haul flights offer a nice 32 inches of leg room. If you’re using air miles you’re probably looking at around 80,000 miles an economy RT and 140,000 for a business class RT flight.
