June 13th, 2013

Warm weather, sand and sun—some of the best that summer has to offer. For those looking to get away, Florida offers a variety of options, with cities that are the perfect vacation spots for any family’s interests.

Below, we outline three destinations with hotel discounts perfect for a Florida summer getaway budget: Orlando, Key West and Miami.

Orlando, Florida

For those with small children, or young-at-heart big kids and adults, you probably know Orlando, Florida as the home of Walt Disney World. This attraction hot spot features four theme parks, 24 resorts, two water parks and more—just waiting for your exploration!

If theme parks are not your idea of fun, consider a trip to the beach, hot air balloon ride, airboat safari or deep-sea fishing trip.

When you’re ready for a memorable meal, Orlando offers dinner shows that bring treasure-hunting pirates, murder mysteries and Arabian nights to life.

Orlando special promotions include discounts on the following:

· Quality Inn Universal Studios

Miami, Florida

Whether you’re looking for sand and sea or a vibrant cityscape, Miami is a great city for you to explore.

Take an adventure boat tour of Biscayne Bay, or cruise through Millionaires Row and Fisher Island, all while taking in views of the downtown Miami skyline. To see the city from all angles and elevations, consider a bike, kayak or helicopter ride.

Are you feeling adventurous? The Everglades in Miami provide opportunities to travel on an airboat safari through the tropical wetlands. Take a short drive out of the city and visit Everglades National Park.

Miami special promotions include discounts on the following:

· B2 Miami Downtown Hotel

Key West, Florida

Want a getaway to a place where life seems to move more slowly? Key West may be the place for you. Travel to the southernmost point of the continental United States and experience lighthouses, botanical gardens, museums, nightlife, beaches and more.

Consider an all day boat trip to Dry Tortugas National Park, or visit the Key West Butterfly and Nature Conservatory for one-of a-kind experiences.

Are you a certified scuba diver? Take a dive into the Key West waters and visit the Vandenberg Wreck, a former military transporter and missile-tracking ship.

Carnival Glory returns from multi-million dollar upgrade

March 1st, 2010

Adults-only Serenity Deck on Carnival Glory
Adults-only Serenity Deck on Carnival Glory is one new feature.

One of the most popular cruises departing from Miami, FL just received a huge upgrade of modern luxury, internet availability, and calm serenity for Eastern and Western Caribbean fun. The Carnival Glory has resumed service following a multi-million-dollar renovation that added a host of new facilities and features, including a Serenity adults-only retreat, a 270-square-foot Seaside Theatre poolside LED screen, and a Circle “C” facility for 12- to 14- year olds.

Eighteen new balconies were also incorporated onto existing ocean view staterooms and a new Mongolian wok venue was added to the casual poolside restaurant. Bow-to-stern Wi-Fi access was added, as well.

From February to May, the 2,974-passenger Carnival Glory operates seasonal seven-day cruises from Miami, alternating weekly to the eastern and western Caribbean. Seven-day eastern Caribbean cruises visit Half Moon Cay, St. Thomas, San Juan and Grand Turk, while the western route features Grand Cayman, Isla Roatan, Belize and Cozumel.

The ship will then be deployed to New York where it will offer a series of four- and five-day Atlantic Canada voyages from June 6 – September 6, 2010, followed by a series of seven-day Canada/New England cruises, from September 11 – October 9.

“We are constantly looking for ways to improve and expand our product to deliver fun and memorable vacations to our guests while at the same time offering exceptional value,” said Gerry Cahill, Carnival’s president and CEO. “The new Seaside Theatre, adults-only area and Circle ‘C’ facility, which are all available to our guests on a complimentary basis, serve to enhance an already terrific, value-packed vacation choice,” he added.

2010 is shaping up to be a New Year’s Eve like no other! It’s not too late to book a trip and get in on the fun. To help you decide, LastMinuteTravel.com presents North America’s most-popular destinations for ringing in the New Year!

Using our proprietary technology, we’ve collected destination data from our website to find out where North Americans are going to celebrate this New Year’s Eve. The top 5 are:

Orlando
Nobody parties like Mickey and Minnie – and recently Shamu and Spiderman have been getting in on the act too! The Orlando parks go all out for the important night with special fireworks spectaculars and great food and dancing. If crowding into the theme parks will thousands of your closest friends isn’t your thing, there are plenty of fabulous New Year’s parties all across central Florida. Right now flights to Orlando are very affordable, so why not experience some of Disney’s magic for yourself.

Las Vegas
One of the most exciting and colorful places to celebrate New Year’s, Las Vegas attracts the wildest people to their growing number of clubs. There are so many options for the New Year in Vegas; toast the “nouvelle année” from the top of the replica Eiffel Tower, party with thousands of others on the Strip as midnight approaches, or watch the festivities from a private suite in your favorite resort. Any are great locations to watch the massive fireworks show that will launch from the rooftops of seven hotels along the Strip.

New York City
The traditional place to ring in the New Year is Times Square. The Big Apple is the center of attention if you want to experience the festive throng and the famed “ball drop”. If being outside in NYC’s winter weather isn’t your thing, there are thousands of great parties to join after you take in a Broadway show or catch the Radio City Rockettes.

Chicago
New Year’s revelers flock to Chicago for the great food and the fun parties. Whether its luxury you want or a party in a penthouse club, you’ll find it in the windy city. Just bundle up as it can get a bit chilly out there. Other popular parties include a river cruise or a concert at Grant’s park. Both provide you with a front-row view of the fireworks.

Los Angeles
Westcoasters in the know flock to the city of fun and sun for one last fling before the New Year begins. Popular places to party include Disneyland in Anaheim, the Together As One festival to dance into the next decade, and any of the hundreds of trendy clubs in Santa Monica or Beverly Hills where you can see or be seen. My favorite LA parties let you ring in the New Year twice, once at 9pm when NYC drops the ball and again at Midnight west coast time.

Other hot party cities include Miami, San Diego, New Orleans, Myrtle Beach, and San Francisco.
