Looking forward to our next cruise adventure on the MSC Cruises ship, the MSC Bellissima. While there were a good selection of cabins the day before Thanksgiving, the day after, most were gone, and several weeks in December were simply sold out. I guess everybody decided to go on MSC over Thanksgiving ! The fares on Emirates for Business Class also doubled, as flights were booked (mostly from cruise ship arrivals). Word to the wise, book before a holiday, and if you’re booking flights, I recommend early booking for Business Class, or book Economy and hope for paid upgrades and space available.
Looking for a wonderful AirBNB to stay while in Switzerland ? Try this beautiful Villeneuve, Switzerland luxury apartment, close to Montreux and on the sunny side of Lake Geneva (Lac Le Man). I recently stayed at this two suite, and two bathroom apartment, which has a clothes water, full kitchen and media center, WiFi and USB wall hubs in every room (great for easy charging of iPhone, computers, and digital accessories). Easy train and bus access.
Chartering a private jet from Barcelona (Spain) to Zurich (Switzerland) just added to our already fantastic Sky Princess cruise around the Mediterranean. We skipped the lines at the airport TSA, boarding the jet from the private-corporate FBO in Barcelona. The Hawker 300 (Nextant) jet was spacious for 6 of us, including a wonderful lunch. The short flight (less than 1.5 hours) got us into snowy Switzerland all energized and refreshed.
