We at Travelated are in favor of you getting off your ass and doing just about anything, but we prefer that you get up and travel. Watching hours and hours of Anthony Bourdain doesn’t count as traveling, no matter how much you want it to.

This all-inclusive travel option takes care of all the details for you: 3 meals a day, camping equipment and camp site fees, a guide and driver, and transportation around the region, including truck maintenance, tolls, and petrol.

I admit it — I like to cruise. And I’m not a senior citizen, or a newlywed, or a BINGO champion (well, not yet anyway!). I’m on my third cruise this year and my first Trans-Atlantic crossing: 2 weeks of relaxation, 5 islands, including 3 Caribbean ports, and 5 consecutive sea days = Bliss!
