AmaWaterways Has Something Special Planned for Your Holiday Cruise

AmaWaterwaysIf you are a planning on taking a European cruise with AmaWaterways over the December holidays, then you may be in for a special treat. AmaWaterways is planning on giving passengers an extra one to two nights on its ships located in ports in Amsterdam.

However, if that isn't enough for you, AmaWaterways is also offering "triple savings" on the holiday cruises as well. New bookings made through October 31 will be rewarded with a $500 price savings per person on the cruise as well as a complimentary one-category stateroom upgrade and a $100 shipboard credit per stateroom.

However, this offer is only available on the following two cruise lines:

AmaLegro - A two-night pre-cruise program in Prague followed by a nine-night Nuremberg to Amsterdam cruise that includes two complimentary nights on board the ship in Amsterdam. The United States Departure Date is scheduled for December 20, with a cruise embarkation date of December 23.

AmaLyra - A two-night Prague pre-cruise program followed by an eight-night Nuremberg to Amsterdam cruise that includes a complimentary night on board the ship in Amsterdam. The United States Departure Date for this cruise is scheduled for December 22 with a cruise embarkation date of December 25.

Both cruises will visit towns decorated during the holiday season including Christmas markets filled with hand-made crafts, toys, ornaments, etc... Special on board activities also include things like tree-trimming parties, crew caroling and a visit from ol' St. Nick himself. A traditional Christmas dinner will be served on both ships as well as a New Year's feast complete with fireworks in Amsterdam to bring in the new year.

Travel Purchases Influenced by Frequent Flyer Miles

Frequent Flyer MilesIn most cases travelers tend to give some thought and consideration to earning frequent flyer miles whenever making decisions about travel purchases.

At least that is true according to a survey that was recently conducted by GO Airport Express and The GO Group, one a ground transportation company out of Chicago and the other an international franchise organization of ground transportation companies.

The survey had a total of 675 participants, all of which were asked how often earning frequent flyer miles factored into their decisions. Nearly 71% indicated that earning frequent flyer miles always, frequently or occasionally factored into their decision with only 28% saying that it never does.

According to President of GO Airport Express John McCarthy, "I think the survey tells us that people are seeking an added value when making airfare, hotel or other related purchases, as opposed to choosing on single factors such as price."

In addition to that, customers of GO Airport Express can also earn Preferred Rider miles as well as United Mileage Plus or American Advantage miles by joining the free Preferred Rider Program.

I am not a frequent flyer though I do know that if I was, I would definitely be looking into decisions that increased my frequent flyer miles. With the downward spiral our economy is on, coupled with the rising fuel costs and rising prices of airline tickets, frequent travelers can use all the help they can get.
