What we miss most about cruising and hopefully will get to do again soon

We all miss going on #cruises so I wrote a post about the many things I miss most with lots of #photos of fabulous #meals from past voyages. I especially focused on food because after sheltering at home for nearly a year and preparing more meals (I'm usually on a ship a few times a year) I really miss the luxury of dining at sea not to mention having #breakfast served in bed or on the balcony and well you just have to read it. Then call a Pavlus agent at 800-528-9300 or go to the list of cruises on our site to schedule a future voyage.

A brief history of the ever-changing cruise industry

In the 1990s #cruises and #cruiseships started evolving into more innovative offerings and luxurious accommodations. As a cruise writer I wrote a fun piece about a savvy seafarer in search of the ultimate or utopian experience. It was a fun job and as lines like #Crystal, #Silversea #Seabourn #RSSC emerged it was easy to nail it. That decade launched a new era in cruising which just keeps steaming ahead.
Here's tje post for anyone interested in a little #maritime history circa the 1990's to today. So much has changed in the #cruise industry since then and all for the better. Read what it was like then and now and let's hope it keeps on sailing full steam ahead. See how #luxurycruises took over the market with the debuts of companies such as Crystal Cruises Silversea Cruises Seabourn @RegentSevenSeas and others. https://pavlus.com/pavlus-blog/a-brief-history-of-the-ever-changing-cruise-industry/I#C#C

This is disappointing news regarding Azamara, which was so brilliantly managed under the direction of Larry Pimentel that it became one of my most favorite cruise lines. Being part of Royal Caribbean allowed it to have operational efficiencies that can't be replicated as a stand alone brand, that I'm fearful about its future prospects. Further I would not begin to consider booking with Silversea unless and until there is a complete branding and operational break with the Lefebvre family, which would include closing the Monaco office, replacing any third party management company (e.g. V. Ships) with Royal Caribbean employees and bringing those operations to Miami. (I am assuming that any "silent investors" Lefebvre may have brought into the fold are long gone).
BUYER BEWARE: DO NOT use this agent for travel. In October of 2019, my friends and I decided to travel to Peru. We booked a tour through Pavlus Travel and made a deposit of approximately $6000. Due to Covid19, our trip to Peru was canceled. Today marks exactly 61 days since we were told that the refund was issued. (see attached) We have NOT received the refund. We have contacted them multiple times. At first, after advising us the refund was issued, they kept insisting we accept a credit voucher instead. Wait a minute, wasn’t the refund issued already? No! They blatantly lied, utilized unethical stalling practices to try to convince us of allowing them to keep our deposit. (see photos)
What is Viking planning for its river and ocean cruises?
2 friends and I have confirmed reservations to sail from Honolulu to Tahiti on September 24 on board the Pacific Princess. Too soon to know if the sailing is still going, but do let me know if you hear anything.
We will not book another Viking River cruise with Pavlus again as it is impossible to speak to your travel agent once you have a booking. We leave voice mails but the messages never say whether the person is in the office, gone on holiday or no longer with the company. If you pay for Viking Air Concierge, Viking communicates with Pavlus, so they say, but Pavlus never transmitted the emails to us. Again we spent four hours talking to Viking for our business class flights. What is the point of having a travel agent when they do not assist any further once you have booked your river cruise? Book directly with Viking.
My husband and I plus 5 other friends traveled to Greece on the Footsteps of Paul tour/cruise the end of September 2019. Greece is beautiful - our tour/cruise was not. We traveled on a plane for 13 or so hours to get up in the morning to travel by bus for another 5 hours. We saw very little of Paul's journeys on this trip but were given a lot of history of Greece and her wars with this country and that one. One day we were gotten up early, no breakfast and taken to a site where we stayed until about 1-1:30 and put back on a bus and traveled for another hour or so and during this bus ride the travel agent was calling on her phone to find us some place to eat lunch. We ended up in banquet place that served us cold food or burnt pizza. Meals were sometimes taken at 8-10 pm. Before our trip we had so many problems I wasn't sure we even had a trip planned. They (pavlus) did not communicate with any of us (3 couples and a daughter) The agents changed several times . I would never do business with this group again. It was totally unorganized.

We just returned from a trip on an Avalon River Boat in Europe which was fabulous! We worked (she did most of the work) with Jennifer Endonino at Pavlus to make this a relaxing easy vacation and she was outstanding!! Everything was smooth and pain-free even after we had to abandon our fall plans due to the water levels in the rivers in Europe and rebook for April. Jennifer took care of everything and made it a better vacation than we envisioned. Can't wait to plan another adventure and I will certainly call Jennifer. She is the best!
We have used Pavlus Travel services for many trips all over the place: land, river. They are the best for value, extra rewards, and expert consultants. Highly recommend them.
