When is the best time to take a cruise to the Bahamas?

Because the Bahamas are located in "Hurricane Country" you want to avoid the summer for trips to the Bahamas. Spring and winter will have the best weather and best temperatures! The best time to cruise in the Bahamas with the best weather is sometime between March and May. Pricewise, the cruise would be cheaper if taken in September or October.

The average high temperatures for the Bahamas drop below 80 degrees Fahrenheit from December through March, according to the World Weather Organization. They get into the upper 80s from May through October.

Rainfall is a different story. Rainfall is quite low during the winter, but it spikes in the late summer because of the hurricane season. Historically, August is the worst month for total rainfall and number of days that it rains. May has the best combination of warm temperatures and low average rainfall.

Can you board the cruise at a later port of call?

Most lines do not allow boarding part way though a voyage as their check in facilities are at the embarkation port. Also many of the customs agreements do not allow it on cruises that cross international borders.

This is unless you miss the ship at the embarkation port they may allow you to join the ship at the next port.

It is sometimes a possibility but you would have to contact the cruise line you are considering to be certain. I have looked into it as I work in support of the cruise industry in Alaska in the summer but was generally told no or there would be a very high ($300-$500) premium to plan to join the cruise late or leave it early.

What is the biggest benefit of owning a timeshare?

  • This system makes vacation home ownership possible for many people who cannot afford a second home or who otherwise would not be able to enjoy such resort facilities. It is important to remember that purchasing timeshare should never be viewed as a financial investment with the expectation of gaining a profit in either reselling it or renting it to someone else. Timeshare is an investment in lifestyle, in future holidays, in family time together, and when viewed that way it can be a good investment indeed. There are different structures so check the details carefully. A timeshare is not the same as a fractional ownership property. In some locations you are buying a part of the freehold and in other cases you are just reserving time with no real ownership rights. In some ways the only benefit is the fact that you are pre-reserving a holiday rather than being unsure where you will be heading each year. Some programs allow you to trade you time for an alternative location but you must look closely at the trading privileges and restrictions.
  • Timeshare is an investment and you have to make your move very carefully.

  • The benefit of owning a timeshare is you have a vacation every year. For example, I bought a timeshare in Hot Springs, Arkansas the week of July 4 holiday in a 2 bedroom lake front condo in a small community. I paid more for a premium week, but gave me the option to be able to deposit that time with a travel club and trade for a vacation other resorts of my choosing or renting is out for a fee. Once the timeshare was paid for the yearly costs were: Maintenance fees for my timeshare and fees for the travel membership (optional). There are many pros and cons of timeshare ownership, but never to look at it as an investment.

The biggest benefit in owning a timeshare is the fun and enjoyment that you get from it. For some owners who are satisfied with their ownership, their main reason to own one is to enjoy life and have a break from a year of hard work.

Without thinking of its costs, timeshares can give you a perfect way of relaxing and enjoying during your vacation week. Its biggest benefit would be the fun that a great timeshare location could give you.

The idea that a timeshare unit is yours for a certain period of time is enough reason why many people still go for timesharing despite its disadvantages. It is like having a home away from home. So, there is more freedom when an owner spends his/her time with that unit.

Location and the amenities are cited by most owners about what they like about their timeshares.

Poverty

What is pro poor tourism?

Pro-Poor Tourism (PPT) is tourism that results in increased net benefits for poor people. PPT is not a specific product or niche sector but an approach to tourism development and management. It enhances the linkages between tourism businesses and poor people, so that tourism's contribution to poverty reduction is increased and poor people are able to participate more effectively in product development. Links with many different types of 'the poor' need to be considered: staff, neighbouring communities, land-holders, producers of food, fuel and other suppliers, operators of micro tourism businesses, craft-makers, other users of tourism infrastructure (roads) and resources (water) etc. There are many types of pro poor tourism strategies, ranging from increasing local employment to building mechanisms for consultation. Any type of company can be involved in pro-poor tourism - a small lodge, an urban hotel, a tour operator, an infrastructure developer. The critical factor is not the type of company or the type of tourism, but that an increase in the net benefits that go to poor people can be demonstrated.

What are some great vacation spots?

If you want to travel abroad then I think Hong Kong is really good; if you like some fantasy, then a Disney resort is a good place; it depends on what do you like in a vacation.

If you like a warm place and nice beaches, try Hawaii, Florida, Mexico, Australia, or the Mediterranean. If you like skiing, there's the Alps or the Rockies.

From to my experience, Montgomery in Alabama is one of the greatest vacation spots in the USA as the place offers amazing venues in Alabama and a variety of events like sports, live events and concerts at very affordable prices.

Dubai is known as "a city that never sleeps". This is because of the overnight souks and the night life of Dubai. Dubai has many options for entertainment. The emirate is famous for its well-known architecture, monuments, beaches, malls, hotels and especially the lavish Arabic lifestyle. People from all over the world come here to explore this mesmerizing city. Sightseeing is a vital part of Dubai vacations. There are multitudinous tourist activities to try out in and around the city. This includes sand and snow skiing, overnight camping, extravagant shopping and cruising down the beautiful Dubai creek. Administered by the ancient monarchy system, an efficient government body regulates Dubai and it strives for a cosmopolitan attitude that motivates progress.

Regardless of where you go on vacation, avoid timeshare ownership. This option looks budget friendly at first. In the long run, it is much more costly. In fact, many owners today want get rid of their timeshares.
