Default What Goes Around May Come Back !!!!

Cunard use to have a deal in the 70's-80's where you would do a 7 day cruise, and in the middle of the cruise, you would spend a week at their Caribbean resort and then reboard the ship the same day a week later (example..Miami arrive in St Lucia on Wednesday, spend a week at the resort, reboard the following Wednesday in St. Lucia and finish your cruise back in Miami)

I'm sure with the sophisticated inventory management systems in place today, a cruise line could team up with a resort time share organization and offer the same thing and call it unique

I noticed the new cameros,mustangs and chargers look like retro 70-80's muscle cars, the cruiselines can't be far behind

Now that sounds appealing to me....I've always wanted to linger longer in some of the beautiful islands I've visited....

We would love to cruise to Hawaii and linger for a week on one of the islands. I won't fly to Hawaii as I am unable to sit for long stretches without going crazy...sorta like RLS but it is my whole body! I tried the flight twice and ended up hanging around the galley with the flight attendants. My seat mate loved it...had 2 seats to stretch out and sleep.

quote Venice: "(example..Miami arrive in St Lucia on Wednesday, spend a week at the resort, reboard the following Wednesday in St. Lucia and finish your cruise back in Miami)"

Now that would be cool. I certainly would pay for something like that... and it would be the best of both worlds. I just hope it's another cruise line besides Cunard....

I wonder if the cruise lines actually get any ideas off these BB's... if so, Venice has some recompense coming...

Someone is (or was) offering a variation that now in Barbados. You could either board in San Juan (Sundays) or Barbados (Wednesdays) and re-board on same cruise following week. I believe it was just seasonal or a few months a year. May have been P&O. I met some people doing it and it interested me as I love Barbados.
