We’re WAY different than the “big guys”…

The difference with On Deck Travel is after you book, it doesn’t stop there!
You receive individualized attention from our team who will assist you with hotel accommodations, transportation, attraction tickets, meals, sightseeing, shopping, special events, and more. We are so familiar with our destinations that we want to share sights and experiences that are off the beaten path too- many of which are still hidden gems!

When partnering with us, we’ll plan everything so you can have peace-of-mind (and of course, a fantastic photo album).

We provide you with an amazing itinerary within your budget…

Our expert team will keep your time and budget in mind by listening to your needs. We then will advise you on your best options, create an itinerary that works for you and provide personal attention to detail with hands-on care. You can put your trust in us to guide you every step of the way, providing you with your trip, your way!

We make sure there are no “surprises”…but we do love finding you freebies!

With On Deck Travel we make sure that if a surprise happens to arise, we are the ones who will take care of it. You won’t have to worry about your room “surprisingly” being under the ballroom or directly next to the loud restaurant. Plus if any outside conditions affect your travel plans, our team will be in contact with the correct people, safely guiding your next step.
What we love most about planning your vacation? Finding you freebies and upgrades that you’ll love! From free spa treatments to a nominal price with a fantastic upgrade, these added details are simply a fun bonus to our overall custom vacation planning services.

Our promise to you:

With so many travel options out there, it can be overwhelming. We work as your 'value interpreter.'

News - Carnival Triumph to Become Carnival Sunrise in Makeover | On Deck Travel


Carnival Cruise Line revealed plans for a nearly $200 million bow-to-stern makeover for Carnival Triumph in the spring of 2019 that will include renaming the ship to reflect its significant transformation. The ship will join Carnival’s Sunshine class and will be named Carnival Sunrise after a two-month-long refurbishment that will take place in Cadiz, Spain, starting March 1. The dry dock makeover will add all of Carnival’s wildly popular branded food, beverage and entertainment innovations, as well as update all staterooms in a broad spectrum of new accommodations providing guests fresh and exciting seagoing vacation choices.

Following a renaming ceremony, Carnival Sunrise will re-enter service with a series of five- to seven-day voyages from Norfolk, Va., beginning April 29, 2019, a summer schedule of four- to 14-day departures from New York commencing May 23, 2019, then move to Fort Lauderdale in October.

Carnival Sunrise enhancements include the redesign of two luxurious Captain’s Suites adjacent to the navigational bridge offering floor-to-ceiling windows and extended balcony grand suites. All of the ship’s staterooms will be updated to offer island-inspired interiors with bright colors and soothing pastels inspired by the line’s Caribbean itineraries. Other new features will include:

- Cucina del Capitano: offering delicious Italian favorites and new Carnival classics served family-style in an engaging atmosphere reminiscent of a cozy Italian home.
- JavaBlue Café: this expanded version of the line’s popular coffee bars will offer lattes, cappuccinos and other caffeinated favorites, as well as “spiked” coffees made with liqueurs, and decadent confections.
- Fahrenheit 555 Steakhouse: a classic American steakhouse offering mouth-watering steaks, gourmet appetizers, entrees and desserts, with impeccable service and understated ambiance.
- Bonsai Express: the success of the full-service Bonsai Sushi restaurants has spawned this casual spot, featuring a mouth-watering array of sushi, sashimi, rolls and more.
- The Chef’s Table: a new multi-course dining experience hosted in a special glass-enclosed venue in the forward dining room.
- Cherry on Top: The “sweetest spot on board,” an expanded Cherry on Top features bulk candy, fanciful gifts, custom apparel and a Carnival Adventures shop.
- Guy’s Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse: a casual open-air eatery featuring “real deal” BBQ favorites created by Food Network star Guy Fieri.
- Lido Marketplace: A casual poolside eatery boasting favorites like Seafood Shack offering lobster rolls and other New England-inspired fare; The Deli with sandwiches and paninis; Pizzeria del Capitano serving hand-tossed artisanal-style pies free of charge 24/7, and an expanded Swirls venue with complimentary ice cream and frozen yogurt.
- RedFrog Pub: Featuring the Caribbean’s best rums and beers – including Carnival’s own ThirstyFrog Red – enjoyed in a distinct British-West-Indies-meets-Key-West atmosphere.
- Piano Bar 88: A new twist on Carnival’s popular piano bar concept that amps up the excitement with themed nights, engaging new décor and spontaneous sing-along fun.
- Limelight Lounge: Home to the Punchliner Comedy Club featuring a hilarious line-up of comics which later transforms into a sizzling night club where guests can dance the night away.
- New Multi-Purpose Liquid Lounge: an expansive theater that’s home to captivating daytime and nighttime entertainment, including the line’s high-tech Playlist Productions revues and audience participation favorite Hasbro, The Game Show.
- SportSquare: A suspended ropes course offering heart-racing views to the sea 150 feet below, basketball court, jogging track, ping pong, foosball, pool tables, and a nine-hole miniature golf course highlight this open-area recreation complex.
- WaterWorks: Featuring a 203-foot-long AquaTunnel slide and Carnival’s signature 212-foot-long Twister slide along with a 75-gallon PowerDrencher tipping bucket and kiddie area.
- Serenity Adult Only Retreat: An adult only oasis offering plush chaise lounges, whirlpools and oversized umbrellas, enhanced by dramatic sea views.
- Cloud 9 Spa: Designed as the ultimate refuge for rest and relaxation, the health and wellness center offers an elaborate thermal suite, private treatment rooms, and the latest cardio and weight-training equipment.
- Modern, Spacious Facilities for Kids and Teens: including a new Camp Ocean, a colorful marine-inspired play area designed for kids ages 2-11, along with new spaces for Circle “C” aimed at 12- to 14-year olds and Club O2 geared to those 15-17.
- The Warehouse: promising fun for all ages with a variety of the latest video and arcade games.
Expanded Retail Spaces: a mall-style shopping area lined with retail outlets offering fine jewelry, watches, fragrances, and more along with the line’s own branded spaces like Hip Fish and The Carnival Store.

Carnival Sunrise’s Inaugural Season from Norfolk, New York and Fort Lauderdale
Carnival Sunrise’s inaugural schedule from Norfolk kicks off with a seven-day cruise departing the Half Moon Cruise Center visiting Grand Turk, the private island of Half Moon Cay and Freeport departing April 29, 2019.

The program includes four- to eight-day Bermuda cruises, including long weekend sailings to the island departing Thursdays and returning Mondays, along with seven-day fall foliage cruises to New England and the Canadian Maritimes, and two different eight-day Caribbean itineraries with stops at the region’s top destinations. Several longer voyages will also be offered, including a 10-day exotic eastern Caribbean itinerary and a 14-day Carnival Journeys Panama Canal cruise highlighted by local dining and entertainment experiences and unique shipboard enrichment activities.

Carnival Sunrise will then reposition to Fort Lauderdale for four- and five-day cruises beginning Oct. 28, 2019. Four-day long weekend cruises will call at tropical ports like Half Moon Cay, Princess Cays, Grand Turk and Nassau, while five-day cruises will visit Cuba, as well as seaside destinations in The Bahamas, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Grand Turk.

Carnival Cruise Line has announced plans for a $200 million makeover for Carnival Triumph in the spring of 2019. The transformed ship will be renamed Carnival Sunrise. She’ll join the line’s Sunshine class of ships.

[07/20/18]   Mexico’s Top Tourism Destinations Deemed Safe. 🇲🇽🔝🇲🇽

The United States Department of State issued an update for its travel advisory to Mexico by deeming all major tourism destinations safe.

The Mexico Tourism Board revealed that more than 40 of the country’s major international tourist destinations have no travel restrictions and exist in states where there are no special travel advisories for tourist.

Mexican officials cite the updated travel advisory to prove the vast majority of crimes in the country do not occur in areas frequented by international tourists. Even some of the areas with remaining warnings have resort areas free of the travel restrictions, including Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta.

In total, Mexico is the sixth-most visited country in the world, registering 39.3 million international visitors in 2017. The tourism industry in the country has also experienced a growth rate above industry-average levels for the last five years, thanks in part to the government’s focus on the safety of tourists.

Mexico’s tourism industry and the Mexico Tourism Board continue to work together to make the country safe for travelers.

Are your you safe traveling to Mexico?? Unless your📣🍹🍮🌯🌮 joining a drug cartel that would be a YES. :)

How would you like a fabulous all-inclusive experience right here in the US? I spent today touring the freshly updated Eden Roc Hotel and Nobu Hotel right on the iconic and beautiful Miami Beach. These two resorts share an address, several pools and restaurants, as well as a lobby with separate check-in areas.

At Eden Roc, a vibrant city transitions to a beachside oasis. Lush interior spaces designed for pampering and relaxation offer oversized balconies peering out at the sea and the city. Whether you're looking for a home base from which to explore Miami Beach or a serene oceanfront backdrop to unwind and escape, at Eden Roc Miami Beach your time belongs to you.

Nobu Hotel delivers the unique chemistry and perfect balance of luxury, fun, craft and theater. The setting merges Eden Roc’s iconic Miami Modern architecture with an intuitive interpretation of Chef Nobu’s signature style. David Rockwell drew upon Japanese architecture and the hotel’s oceanfront location to evoke a contemporary Japanese beach house in a setting complete with Nobu private pool, coming soon.

Both resorts are now offering all-inclusive packages. Contact me for more information. No passports required!
