As we return to travel, it’s time to make that longdreamed of getaway extra special.

The world of travel—along with all of us—has been through a lifetime of changes in the past 18 months. But as life goes on and our favourite winter sun destinations start to welcome visitors back again, it’s time to start planning that long-dreamed-of getaway. “With cruise lines and sun spots gearing up for post-pandemic travel, our expert Maritime Travel advisors have hit the ground running,” says Janice Frioult, Manager, Maritime Travel, Cranbrook. “The rules of travel are changing rapidly, so we are required to be up-to-date on all the latest policies to avoid added expenses and missed vacation opportunities. This is not a job for a travel app!” As Janice points out, planning a trip is about more than booking a seat on an airplane. It’s about planning an experience—and that’s what we do best. “Along the way, we can help travellers save money, take the hassle out of booking and use our up-to-date knowledge of pandemic-related issues to make travel as easy as possible.” But with limited space and the ever-changing travel landscape, planning ahead is key. “Space is quickly booking up on the most popular cruise itineraries and beach destinations,” says Janice. “Whether we’re back in the office, or working from our home office, we are here to make your return to travel fun and worry-free. Don’t delay!”

Let’s Get Cruising! Ready for the Big Cruise Comeback? So are we—and it’s the Caribbean itineraries that have our Maritime Travel advisors buzzing with excitement. “For me, this past year has been all about dreaming—of thinking about all the cruises I want to experience, rather than actually taking them,” says Alison Hekker, Manager, Maritime Travel, Fort St. John. “It’s exciting to be booking those cruises for real now—both for myself and for my clients.” Caribbean itineraries—especially those with innovative activities and interesting ports of call—are top-of-mind for Maritime Travel clients, according to Alison. “Many of my clients are not yet ready to venture too far from home, but they’re looking for a classic cruise experience (great food, top-notch entertainment and fabulous service) in a sunny destination with some interesting twists.” Needless to say, adherence to Covid-19 health protocols is integral to the post-pandemic cruise experience. “All the major cruise lines follow stringent directives,” says Alison. “The benefits are no self-serve buffet dining, no major lineups and no jockeying for deck chairs. But while the level of pampering and service we’ve all come to expect remains the same as it was BC (“before Covid”), changes are inevitable. A flexible passenger is therefore a happier passenger, in my opinion.”
