Lana’i

Lanai

Lanai is the smallest publicly accessible inhabited island in the chain. It is also known as Pineapple Island because of its past as an island-wide pineapple plantation. 97% of the island is also privately owned but it is still a tourist attraction and there are still locals living on the island. Tourist can visit this island and stay in the resort here.

Vacation Funnies

These are actual complaints received by a travel company according to the Huffington Post.

1. “I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local convenience store does not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts.”

2. “It’s lazy of the local shopkeepers in Puerto Vallarta to close in the afternoons. I often needed to buy things during ‘siesta’ time — this should be banned.”

3. “On my holiday to Goa in India , I was disgusted to find that almost every restaurant served curry. I don’t like spicy food.”

4. “We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring our own swimsuits and towels. We assumed it would be included in the price.”

5. “The beach was too sandy. We had to clean everything when we returned to our room.”

6. “We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure shows the sand as white but it was more yellow.”

7. “They should not allow topless sunbathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax.”

8. “No one told us there would be fish in the water. The children were scared.”

9. “Although the brochure said that there was a fully equipped kitchen, there was no egg-slicer in the drawers.”

10. “We went on holiday to Spain and had a problem with the taxi drivers as they were all Spanish.”

11. “The roads were uneven and bumpy, so we could not read the local guide book during the bus ride to the resort. Because of this, we were unaware of many things that would have made our holiday more fun.”

12. “It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It took the Americans only three hours to get home. This seems unfair.”

13. “I compared the size of our one-bedroom suite to our friends’ three-bedroom and ours was significantly smaller.”

14. “The brochure stated: ‘No hairdressers at the resort’. We’re trainee hairdressers and we think they knew and made us wait longer for service.”

15. “There were too many Spanish people there. The receptionist spoke Spanish, the food was Spanish. No one told us that there would be so many foreigners.”

16. “We had to line up outside to catch the boat and there was no air-conditioning.”

17. “It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests before we travel.”

18. “I was bitten by a mosquito. The brochure did not mention mosquitoes.”

19. “My fiance and I requested twin-beds when we booked, but instead we were placed in a room with a king bed. We now hold you responsible and want to be re-reimbursed for the fact that I became pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the room that we booked.”

Romance Is In The Air

Looking for a romantic getaway for just the two of you? Or maybe a family vacation that allows for some quality alone time with your significant other? You can strike up the heat just about anywhere but some places are just better for setting the mood.

Of course Italy and Paris are known for being amazingly romantic places to take your significant other, but how about Jamaica, Barbados, St. Lucia or Georgetown, Grand Cayman.

There is something romantically magical about the crystalline blue waters, white-sand beaches and luxurious indulgence of the islands in the Caribbean.

Love is created in these islands and it can also be nourished and renewed and nothing beats a romantic cruise to renew and ignite that passion while getting there.

Most cruises offer wonderful programs for children and teens alike. So while you and your partner are having the time of your life, your kids can be too. With a cruise you can have your family fun with a bit of romance on the side. We also have plenty of adult only options if you prefer.
