Cruises and tour packages are on sale!

I just completed 3 days of product updates and workshops that were conducted by the major cruise lines and tour operators. The consensus among all the suppliers was that people are still traveling.

Another thing that everyone agreed on (which is rare in travel industry) is that current pricing levels are low and bargains abound everywhere. The cruise line folks mentioned more than once that cruise prices are as low as they were 20 years ago. Tour operators stated that many of their package prices have actually decreased for 2009.

Now is the time to contact your travel agent and check out the special vacation that you’ve always thought you could not afford.
