Jeannie Bishop - Vacation in Hawaii

Hawaii Vacations:  A Paradise

Hawaii vacations are available for individuals of all ages. While many enjoy taking their family on a Hawaii vacation, there are others who choose to vacation in Hawaii alone with their spouse. With all of the romantic destinations in the world, you may be wondering why you should vacation in Hawaii.

Romantic getaways in Hawaii are popular for an unlimited number of different reasons.  Perhaps, the climate is what draws in most couples.  Almost all year long, the climate in Hawaii is tropical, warm, and inviting.  Many couples schedule a Hawaii vacation to escape their cold weather. In addition to escaping cold weather, there is just something about a tropic environment that generates romance.

Aside from the weather, many of the vacation destinations found in Hawaii are geared for couples that are looking for a romantic getaway.  There are a number of popular vacation destinations in Hawaii, the most popular being Hawaii's beaches.  If you are interested in scheduling a romantic getaway at a Hawaii beach, you have a number of different options to choose from.

When vacationing at a beach in the United States, many couples visit the beach and then return to their hotel room. Similar accommodations are available in Hawaii; however, the area is most famous for its beautiful beach resorts.  If you are looking to have direct access to the beach and everything it has to offer, you may want to consider booking a stay at a Hawaii beach resort.

In addition to having onsite accommodations, many Hawaii beach resorts are known for their romantic environments and atmospheres.  By directly contacting a beach resort or by researching one online, you can easily determine whether the resort caters specifically to couples.  When looking for a romantic beach resort, you may want to consider the onsite activities for children.  If children are allowed to stay onsite, many romantic hotels refrain from offering onsite activities; this may help to keep the setting more mature as experienced by Jeannie Bishop

The Hawaii destination you select to vacation at is important when planning a romantic getaway. In addition to destinations, you will want to consider the activities that you can participate in.  Hawaii has an unlimited number of vacation activities that can be found all around the country.  The best way to bring romance to your vacation is to determine which of the vacation activities brings you pleasure.

Just a few of the many things that you can do while vacationing in Hawaii include boating, swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, and horseback riding.  Many couples find beachside horseback riding to be relaxing and romantic, all at the same time. While snorkelling or scuba diving, you may be amazed with what you see and learn. For many, this excitement helps to generate romance. 

When booking your romantic Hawaii getaway, you may find that the cost of vacationing in Hawaii can be expensive.  If you are planning a romantic vacation, while on a budget, you can still visit many of the above mentioned destinations and participate in many of the above mentioned activities. 

To obtain low-cost reservations in Hawaii, you are encouraged to search for vacation packages or all-inclusive packages. Traditional vacation packages often combine hotel and travel accommodations.  In addition to including hotel and travel accommodations, all-inclusive vacation packages are likely to include your cost of foods, drinks, and possibly your entertainment.  You can easily search for these Hawaii vacation packages by directly contacting a vacation resort or by visiting the resort's online website. 

While it is nice to plan your own romantic Hawaii vacation, you may want to consider acquiring the services of a travel agent.  Travel agents often operate locally or online.  In addition to offering you suggestions on romantic vacation destinations, your travel agent will likely save you money.  A large number of travel agents are given special deals and discounts on many vacation destinations, including Hawaii.  Many of these deals are not available to the general public.

Whether you choose to enjoy a romantic getaway at a Hawaii beach or you choose another location, you are sure to enjoy your trip.  With all that it has to offer, Hawaii can easily be considered a paradise.

Jeannie Bishop Hawaii - Life at the Sea

Life At Sea

Taking a yachting vacation means living on a seafaring boat for days or weeks.  But because yachting is traditionally a luxury setting, we often consider yachting to be the same as living in a five star hotel that also is free to roam the high seas.Jeannie Bishop Hawaii says the truth is there will be a different lifestyle on a cruise ship and even the most spacious and luxurious yacht is still a seafaring vessel and it's good to anticipate that lifestyle and be prepared.

There are little things to consider when packing for your yachting vacation.  Besides being sure to pack your bathing suit, you must keep in the mind that you are at sea and no amount of luxury or spending can keep the ocean from creating waves under the boat.  So if you are prone to seasickness, the proper medications should be brought along and taken before you take your foot off of dry land.  Jeannie Bishop Hawaii says of course, any good yacht will have medical facilities and your crew will keep an eye on everyone onboard, particularly if you are new to yachting.  But it's best if you anticipate the need so you don't have to go through a bad experience.

Planning the agenda can help with a problem on yachts that also often sneaks up on people and that is claustrophobia.  While many luxury yachts have plenty of open spaces and the rooms and common areas are geared for the ultimate of comfort, the very fact that you are on a boat that you can see the edges of in both directions and on the other side of those railings is the hostile sea can sometimes get to a member of the party.  Again, anti-anxiety medications can help calm these fears.  But don't keep the members trapped on board for days at a time.  Schedule daily outings to shore to enjoy a sunny beach, to shop in quaint markets and to enjoy local foods.  These kinds of excursions are fun adventures and can keep the "cabin fever" of yachting under control.

Before you book your charter yacht experience, get a good idea for comfort level of the cabins.  While there will be one luxurious master cabin for the sponsor of the trip and some VIP cabins that will also be quite spacious and nice, the guest cabins could be downright confining for others in your party.  The best solution of course is to charter a yacht where all of the cabins are as luxurious as an opulent hotel room.  By making sure everyone in your yachting party is given accommodations that they will rave about, you don't have someone ending the cruise feeling like they passed the voyage in the slave's quarters.

Before leaving to take possession of your yacht, get a checklist from the yacht charter company so you know how to pack and how much storage you have on board. Jeannie Bishop Hawaii tells even the most magnificent of yacht still has some limitation to storage.  So get some dimensions and a physical description of what would be suggested wardrobe and what kind of facilities will be available.  If you know there will be hair dryers, curling irons or even a beauty shop on board, the ladies can leave a lot of their 'toys" at home which makes packing and unpacking a lot easier.

Talk about the lifestyle on board the yacht with the party before you board and the expectations in terms of activities and services.  In fact, you should know long before you are about to board what kinds of special considerations to have available to your group.  The crew captain will have some form of medical expertise on the yacht in the form of a dedicated doctor or a crew member with medical knowledge.  Make him aware of any food allergies that the chef should avoid or other medical conditions to be aware of so all necessary equipment and medicines are on board so no medical emergency can disrupt the trip.

By being prepared in advance, you can assure that everyone in your yachting party is aware of how it will be to live at sea for a few days or weeks and the rolling waves and the ample sea air doesn't take them by surprise. And because you made sure to head off problems in advance, your cruise will be a delight for all involved and memories born on your yachting adventure will last a lifetime.
