Let’s Celebrate National Plan a Cruise Month

October is National Plan a Cruise Month, which means it’s a great time to take advantage of cruise deals and promos.

As you know, along with condominiums, tours and other types of accommodations, Global Connections Inc. offers cruises as well through the membership and through our Travel Agency. Many condo travelers haven’t experienced the world of cruising and there can be a bit of a learning curve for the uninitiated.

So in order to help you take advantage of National Plan a Cruise Month, we compiled some of the most important information for first-time and perhaps longtime sailors.

Different Types of Cruising

  • River Cruising
    An amazing adventure on a smaller scale. See cities and countrysides up close for a more intimate experience.
  • Singles Cruising
    Going solo? You can find likeminded individuals on these cruises, specifically designed for you to mingle and meet new travelers.
  • Global VIP Cruise
    Did you know Global Connections Inc. hosts themed events on cruises? Sail along on one of these themed cruises, from wine tastings to ballroom dancing to live performances.
  • Cruise Exchange
    You can use your Star Credits on these cruises and save big!
