Cheap Holiday Travel

The headlines out there are all saying that the airlines have been adding fees to their holiday flights so the prices have been going up. On the other side, the cruise lines have had some of the lowest rates for holiday travel in years.

Thanksgiving and Christmas cruises are the one of the few times each year that cruises are usually two to three times the normal rate. The usual reason is the basic supply and demand, where everyone wants to travel and cruise lines have limited inventory. Over the past couple of years that has changed with cruise lines adding bigger and bigger ships and cruise demand slightly declining with the economy.

This year I have seen some of the best cruise rates for cruises to all destinantions in years especially for Christmas. I have seen most a good number selling at less than $100 per day which is good for holiday season.

If you can stay away from the airport and take a cruise from a local homeport, you will be very pleased in what you can find out there.

Happy Cruising!!

Welcome to My Blog

Hello out there. 

My name is Kevin and I have recently created a blog that is here to provide information to my clients anyone interested in the travel world.

My love of travel started at a young age with my family was constantly traveling to different places all over the country.  Through that I loved when we would explore new places and see the sites across the US, Canada, and the Caribbean.  Over the years, I have tried to learn all that there is about travel from companies, sites, people, and everything else involved.  People have come to know me as someone to come to when they want to plan a trip or give them suggestions about where to look to go. 

With all this I thought to turn my love of travel into a part time business, which gave birth to Ocean State of Mind Travel.  I came up with the name in that I live in Rhode Island, the Ocean State, and when you go on a cruise, you fall into a ocean state of mind.  I affiliated myself Cruises and Tours Unlimited who are able to handle my backoffice work while I service you with excellent customer service.  I am also able to pass on those great prices the large agencies give you while giving you personalized service.
