Do you have a larger family? What do you do when you have 5 or more family members? Larger families can create special challenges that smaller groups don’t have to face. Whether it is making dinner reservations, finding the right number of beds for everyone at the resort or anticipating needs of different generations. The #1 key for any vacation with a large group is advanced planning with your friendly Outlander travel agent. Spontaneity can be hard with a large group, and with varied opinions and interests, it is much better to tell the kids the activities that you have planned each day, than to solicit suggestions. We discuss those challenges and how to find the right fits so that everyone gets the absolute best vacation. What do you have for tips?

This is just one example, so this week we wanted to give you some tips on being a mindful traveler.

As you know, we love cruising here at Outlander Travel. We love booking and planning cruises for our clients, and we love taking them as well. Recently, Elizabeth set sail aboard the Carnival Magic with a small group of her clients who love to game together. The bi-annual event is called Club MACE and it gets better and better each year. But we are not here to talk about Dungeons and Dragons at sea… we are here to talk about the vessel that carried them this time: The Carnival Magic!
