Wow! @celebritycruises has upped the luxury game on their new ship. Check out some of these unbelievable suites in The Retreat. They are beyond stunning. It’s an oasis and a great way to have a small ship experience on a large cruise. You have access to your own pool, sun deck, lounge, bar and restaurant. You never have to leave unless you want to! #journeywonderfull #CelebrityBeyond #CelebrityCruises #luxurycruise #Luxurycruising #luxurycruises #luxurytravel #penthousesuite #cruiseship #cruise

I am blown away. If you follow me, you know I love small ship cruising. However, with game changing architecture and design, the #CelebrityBeyond goes beyond all expectations. An Edge Series ship, the Beyond is in a class of its own. She is a luxury resort, spa resort and culinary haven combined into one spectacular cruise ship. Despite holding 3000+ passengers, I am finding there are plenty of private spaces within this large ship. You’ll find a lot of little places and spaces to be by yourself or spend time with other guests. #CelebrityBeyond #JourneyWonderFULL #CelebrityCruises #CruiseCelebrity #cruise #cruises #cruising #cruiseship #cruisetravel #cruiseaddict #cruiselife #lovetocruise #luxurytravel #luxurylifestyle

After a week of sailing the French and Italian Rivieras on @emeraldcruises.global's new super yacht, the Emerald Azzurra, I can safely say that I have been thoroughly spoiled. Although she holds 100 passengers, it often felt like I had the ship to myself. The spaces on board were gorgeous, the food was terrific, and the itinerary was fantastic. In addition, I enjoyed all of the small ports she sailed or tendered into, where we were often the only passengers in town. I couldn't have asked for a better luxury small-ship cruising experience. The Azzurra sails this itinerary again in 2023. I highly recommend checking it out. The link 🔗 is in my bio. #luxurycruise #superyacht #cruise #cruising #cruiseship #yachtlife #yachtcruise #emeraldazzurra #emeraldcruises #emeraldmoments #luxurytavel #smallshipcruises #smallshipcruising #luxurylifestyle #travel #cruise #cruisethemed #southoffrance #cotedazur #cotedazurfrance #ezefrance #ezesurmer #5starreview #italy #portofino #cruisemore #cruiselife

Only small ships, like the Emerald Azzurra, can sail into the harbor in Bonifacio. This hilltop fortress town is located on the southern tip of Corsica. Perched on top of limestone cliffs the views of the Mediterranean Sea are extraordinary from all sides. Below the marina is filled with wonderful boutiques and waterfront restaurants. October is a great month to cruise here while it is still warm and there are less crowds. Plus the shopping is fantastic and everything is on sale. #emeraldcruises #emeraldazzurra #emeraldmoments #yachtcruise #superyacht #yachtstyle #smallshipcruising #luxurycruise #luxurylifestyle #luxurytravel #luxurytrip #visitcorsica #bonifacio

The water platform on @emeraldcruises.global #emeraldazzurra is open on days when the yacht is anchored in port like today in Corsica. Guests have complimentary use of seabobs, kayaks, and paddle boards. If you are not into the sporty activities, you can always just lay on the trampoline and enjoy the warm Mediterranean sun or chill by the pool like I did! #emeraldcruises #emeraldmoments #travelling #travellife #traveladdict #luxurytravel #luxurycruise #yachtcruise #yachtlifestyle #cruise #cruiseship #seabob #standuppaddleboard #yachtday #superyacht #luxuryyacht #luxuryyachtlife

There is no shame in the eBike boost! It enabled me to cruise along Elba’s hilly roads with ease. @emeraldcruises.global keeps a fleet of electric bikes onboard Emerald Azzurra, their super yacht, for guests to use at no extra cost! What a fantastic day in Italy. #emeraldcruises #emeraldmoments #emeraldazzurra #yachtcruise #yachtlifestyle #superyacht #cruise #visititaly #elba #electricbike #ebikes #luxurytravel #luxurytravel #luxurytravels #bikeitalia

Exploring Nice today, the embarkation point on our @emeraldcruises.global #EmeraldAzzurra cruise. We walked through old town and went to the market, one of my favorite things to do in European cities. #yacht #yachting #luxurycruise #cruiselife #cotedazur #cotedazurfrance #villedenice #visitfrance #southoffrance #beautifuldestinations #portsoftheworld #cruisetravel #smallship #smallshipcruising #emeraldmoments #marketday

Spending the day in Cabo with @ecgove from @portholecruise making margaritas and learning how to salsa dance 💃 Fun excursion on our @americanqueenvoyages Ocean Victory cruise. #cabo #cabosanlucas #expeditioncruise #cruise #cruising #cruiselife #cruiseship #americanqueenvoyages #smallcruiseship #mexico #margarita #salsadancing #cabosanlucasmexico

The @americanqueenvoyages Ocean Victory has this very cool feature - a wildlife platforms that opens out over the ocean! It is a great place to look for whales, dolphins, sharks and birds. Although pretty much any spot on this ship is going to give you spectacular ocean views, even from the hot tub. #cruise #cruiselover #expeditioncruise #xbow #cruising #smallshipcruising #smallship #cruiselife #cruiseship #smallcruiseship #seaday #oceanviews #oceanvictory

Italian wine tasting. One of my favorite things about traveling with @aktravel_usa the quality of the excursion choices. From the port of Venice we took a private boat to the island of Sant’Erasmo to visit this beautiful winery. #aktravel #luxurytravel #luxuryexpeditioncruise #italytravel #Venice #veniceitaly #winetasting #cruiseexcursion #exploremore #traveldeeper #satw #visititaly #italytravel #italydestinations #vacationinitaly #beautyfullitaly #visititalyofficial #europeitaly #europetravelling #europetravel #italia

Portugal Travel: What You Need To Know Now

Before you start travel shaming me, you should know that I was invited to visit by TAP Air Portugal and Azores Getaways to visit in a professional capacity. I went to investigate what they are doing to keep their country safe during COVID-19 as well as to observe Portugal’s travel restrictions and the procedures they are putting in place as they ready themselves for tourism recovery. According to National Health Authority guidelines, this coveted Clean and Safe certification recognizes hotels, restaurants, and businesses as establishments that comply with all of the protocols set forth by Portugal’s National Tourism Authority. TAP Air Portugal Clean & Safe program requires a negative RT PCR COVID-19 test within 72 hours of flight departure.

Maine's Mid-Coast is calling! A complete visitor's guide to Camden, Maine

16 Bay View is Camden, Maine’s newest luxury hotel. This Camden Maine hotel is part of the Bay View Collection, a local hotel empire that also includes sister properties the Lord Camden Inn, and the waterfront Grand Harbor Inn. In a renovated building that once housed an automobile dealership, a movie theater, and a local bar among other things, 16 Bay View’s hallways are lined with old photos showcasing the history that is part of its heritage. I’d also recommend staying at the 16 Bay View before or after sailing on the Windjammer Angelique which departs from Camden Harbor.
