Disney Specialist

Whether it’s traveling to a Walt Disney World® Resort or a Disneyland® Resort, with more places to go, more things to see and more Disney Characters to meet, there’s never been a better time to make the dream come true.  Or, why not sail on the Disney Cruise Line® and enjoy the service and expertise of their dedicated crew as they guide you in your exploration of international ports of call.  And, the world is a pretty amazing place once you get to know it–it sure helps if you’ve got a friend who can introduce you. On an Adventures by Disney® vacation, families will get to know the world in ways they never expected-and will never forget. That’s because, traveling with Adventures by Disney means traveling with people who know families, and who know how to plan a family vacation with engaging activities and incredible experiences for everyone.

Sea

Norwegian Cruise LineNorwegian Cruise Lines — cruise like a Norwegian.  We’ve earned our PhD with this line!  Norwegian invented Freestyle Cruising, meaning do what you want, when you want, especially dining.  Norwegian sails from New York City every week all year long.  Their new build will be ready for debut next May (2013).  Contrino Travel has group space available, even for the inaugural from NYC.  They sail other destinations too!  Norwegians cruise with style!
Royal Caribbean — The sea is calling!  We’re lucky to have Explorer of the Seas right in our own backyard–it leaves from Cape Liberty in Bayonne, NJ.  If you’re a rock climber or are into ice skating, you’ll want to consider Royal Caribbean.  They too, sail many destinations and they do it royally!
Princess — We’re your Commodore specialist!  While Princess doesn’t sail from Brooklyn anymore (we’re hoping to get one of the Disney vessels here), they do cruising right.   Princess is the original Love Boat!  Try one of their Alaskan cruises and/or cruisetours.  Sailings from other ports too.
Avalon River Cruising
For a completely different style cruising, why not take to the rivers!  Whether it the Rhine, Yangtzee, Seine or more, you will be visiting almost a new town/city each day–sometimes two in one day.  No glitz/glamour here, but a more authentic feel indicative of the destinations you cruise.  Lots of inclusions–excursions, wine with dinner, WiFi and more with breathtaking views.  River cruising has a strong demand.  Why don’t you see what it’s all about!  We’ll be experiencing it in April and look forward to sharing it with you!
