Cruises for Everyone Part II

Carnival! That sound like celebration and fun, right? Well the definition I found said that carnival is a traveling amusement show, other said festival. I think Carnival’s name live somehow it’s definition. Last time I was sharing with you my experience visiting different ships during ship inspection. In this post I am going to talk about Carnival Valor and Sunshine. Each Carnival ship have their own uniqueness but over all each ship offers fun, great food, relax time and great destination at great value. Other great thing about Carnival is that all members of the family can enjoy it from little kids, to teenagers, parents and grand parents.

I previously wrote about Carnival Valor in another ship inspection that I did on August. You can check out my previous post here. Still on this inspection I took other interesting pictures.

One of my favorite places.

The Carnival Sunshine

Carnival Sunshine was formerly Carnival Destiny built on 1995. It went to dry dock on 2013 for a renovation of $155 million dollars. Now Carnival Sunshine have the major renovation that features all the Fun Ship 2.0 upgrades.

I personally think that it’s amazing the look and all the fun amenities that Sunshine can offer for the whole family. Let me show you what I saw…

Can you see yourself enjoying these great amenities? Are you ready to relax and have fun at the same time with a beautiful balance vacation?

Sunshine is in Port Canaveral and she will be there offering 3 to 8 day cruises. But later on she will be moving to other ports in 2016. During the summer 2016 she will be on Virginia, South Carolina and finishing in New York around October. She will be back to Cape Canaveral. If you want more information about Sunshine let me know I and I can help you with your travel story. 😉

 

Until then…

The Possible Week At TPI Extravaganza

 

Last week it was TPI Extravaganza, a week full of training and motivation for travel agents. What that means is that our host agency Travel Planner International put together the best activities, conference and classes for us. Any person working on its own business needs to find motivation for the everyday life “impossibilities” that running a business can bring.The subject of the week was Mission Possible! So I am sure you know, that if you are new in the business the “impossibilities” that we mention earlier are even bigger. I am not only new in the business but also I have a full-time job that deprive me of time to work on my travel agent dream job.

 

 

 

Thanks God for this past week Mission Possible theme! It took me out of my routine, of my obstacles, of my stress and put me back on track. I know, it not only help me, that I am a rookie but it refocus those that are veterans in the matter too.

It was so good to relate with other people who are as passionate as me and with a lot more experience. I was like a sponge with a filter, absorbing all the good stuff. I met on the last night  a super nice lady , Lourie Gibbons she has been on the industry for 17 years. We talked, sat together, ate, rode the Everest together and while the night passed I stored in by bag some tips of her experiences and knowledge. I also met Mary Scanlin from Texas. She was energetic, retired and full of life. She gave great tips for marketing, branding and more. Another young lady that I met was Destiny Young, she was there with her mom and dad. There are all travel agents working as sub agents of her mom, including her. It is awesome that the whole family is involved in the business but at the same time there are all independents. I could keep mention some great people that during the week at some point or another interacted with me leaving a mark of their experiences imprinted in me. 

 

Beside the training and classes they also treat us like royalty! We ate so much good food like if we were in a luxury cruise! We got, food for our body and for our brain with all the talented speakers and suppliers.

We ended the week with our farewell party at Animal Kingdom, and if we were not yet spoil enough, then that night it did it. They had an exclusive Lion King show for us after the park closed and we were able to ride The Everest ride all night long! How cool is that?

 

 

 

What an awesome week! Now time to work and make everything possible!

Thank you TPI!

Until then,
