We want to congratulate Vikki & Jimmy on their May wedding held at Dreams Sands Cancun Resort & Spa! Thank you for booking with Travel Haus and sharing these beautiful pictures with us. We were honored to be a part of this very special milestone in your lives. Best wishes to Vikki & Jimmy as they begin their married life together!
I love planning destination weddings! My goal is to give each of my brides their perfect day. It is a privilege to be part of the whole planning process and very rewarding to see the end results from the beautiful pictures my brides send me. A destination wedding is a magical experience to share with your friends and family.
Destination weddings are becoming more and more popular: over 15% of all weddings were destination weddings last year. A destination wedding can be the perfect answer for couples for several reasons.
You may have your heart set on a February wedding but also want a beach wedding - what better way to accomplish that than on a Caribbean island like Jamaica? And sometimes your guest list can just grow exponentially with 2nd-cousins-once-removed, mom's-best-friend-from-high-school and co-workers etc. Holding a destination wedding by nature creates a small, more intimate wedding. You can always throw a "After-Wedding Party" when you return so that extended family, friends and coworkers can have a part in celebrating with you.
Why book with Travel Haus? We have been helping couples plan their destination weddings and honeymoons for over 25 years. Day in and day out we are dealing with resorts and everything related to the travel industry. We have partners across the globe who work with us. We are experts and we are here to help! It's our goal to help you experience the wedding of your dreams.
We want to congratulate Andrea and Joe on their wedding this past month at Generations Resort in Riviera Maya! Thank you for booking with Travel Haus and sharing these beautiful pictures with us. We were honored to be a part of this very special milestone in your lives.
Andrea is an amazing seamstress who designed who own wedding gown. Isn't is gorgeous?!? She is now branching out her business, Alterations by Andrea, to include custom wedding gowns.
Best wishes to Andrea & Joe as they begin their married life together! <3
Viking River Cruises are my pick of the week!
Taking a river cruise is unlike any other form of travel. Your small ship departs from cities in the heart of Europe, China, and even as exotic places such as the Mekong, Russia and Myanmar.
The convenience of packing and unpacking once (not having to have your luggage out at 7:00AM to board the bus or changing hotels every day or so) makes River cruising the easiest way to see interesting places and cultures. Unlike the big cruise ships, the focus is on the ports of call, not the ship itself. Viking will often offer guest lecturers to enlighten the passengers on the history and flora and fauna of the destinations you will be visiting. For the most part you sail at night and you arrive in a new port of call each morning. Each day will feature a new city or town, and Viking employs wonderful city guides to provide you with an informative tour. You also never have to worry about motion sickness on a river cruise.
Viking will offer food and wine indicative of the region you will be visiting to give you that extra cultural boost. Beer and wine are complimentary at lunch and dinner. Breakfast and lunch will feature made to order eggs, fresh sandwiches, and entrees which will delight your palate. Dinner is often a 3 course option with 3 different main dishes offered. Food allergies and vegetarian passengers will be taken good care of!
Viking will offer pre and post city packages, along with very competitive prices for airfare. Your Viking Experts (all the agents at Travel Haus) will guide you every step of the way from choosing your ship, recommending the pre and post packages, arranging airfare and seat assignments etc.
Many sailings are filling up for 2016, so give us a call or make an appointment and we can get started planning one of these exciting trips for you!
Hard Rock Resorts are great! I visited the Hard Rock in Punta Cana in October 2013. I loved it! You won’t ever say the word BORED there because there is way too much to do... from casino, awesome Spa, pools, restaurants and many more activities going on throughout the day.

From our Groups Manager, Liza Leister...I love working with Oceania because I never need worry about the quality and service my clients will be receiving. Oceania is a premium cruise line whose tag line is Your World Your Way. They really focus their cruises on the destinations and it is not unusual to find an itinerary which has 1 or 2 overnights in selected ports so you have more quality time to explore the regions you are cruising to. If you have sailed with Holland America, Princess or Celebrity in the past, Oceania would be a great choice for your next cruise as an introduction to the world of premium cruising.
The ships of Oceania are the Regatta, Insignia, Nautica, Sirena, Marina and Riviera. They are all comfortably mid-size and range from 684-1250 passengers. The guest to staff ratio is 1.71 to 1. This means you are NOT just a number as is the case with the larger cruise ships that are now the normal in cruising. Larger ships simply cannot provide the pronounced intimacy, coziness and many other advantages of Oceania Cruises. I have been hearing feedback from many of my clients who have recently sailed on some of the mass-market ships that the service and quality of food has declined in the last 1-2 years. With Oceania, you can relax on board their luxurious ships and savor exquisite cuisine that not only is renowned as the finest at sea, but also rivals the best restaurants ashore. Inspired by Master Chef Jacques Pépin, these culinary delights have always been a hallmark that distinguishes the Oceania Cruises experience from any other. Considering the uncompromising quality, perhaps the most remarkable aspect of an Oceania Cruises voyage is its incredible value. Lavish complimentary amenities abound, and there are never supplemental charges in any of the onboard restaurants. Value packages ensure that sipping a glass of vintage wine, surfing the Internet or enjoying a shore excursion is both convenient and affordable. NO dreaded formal nights! They just recommend country club casual clothing for dinner.
It is often referred to as the most magical place on earth which is why Disney is my #PICKoftheWEEK.
I LOVE DISNEY. There is something for everyone of all ages. Walt Disney World opened on October 1, 1971 and it has been enchanting visitors ever since.
Walter Elias "Walt" Disney (December 5, 1901 – December 15, 1966) was an American entrepreneur, cartoonist, animator, voice actor, and film producer. When Walt lost rights to his cartoon character “Oswald the Lucky Rabbit”, Disney felt the need to develop a new character to replace him, which was based on a mouse he had adopted as a pet while working in his Laugh-O-Gram studio in Kansas City. In 1928, Mickey Mouse was born. Ub Iwerks provided the sketches for Mickey but Mickey's voice and personality were provided by Disney himself until 1947. In the words of one Disney employee, Ub designed Mickey's physical appearance, but Walt gave him his soul. Walt Disney died on December 15, 1966, before construction began on Walt Disney World. According to Forbes, Walt Disney World is the most visited vacation resort in the world, with an attendance of 25 million annually.
The original ticket prices were $5.75 per adult and parking was 50 cents per automobile. The 2 original hotels in Walt Disney World were the Contemporary and the Polynesian and both are still open today. In fact both resorts have expanded with the new Bay Lake Towers Villa section at the Contemporary and the new Polynesian Village section at the Polynesian which will feature over the water bungalows. The top 6 original rides that are still operating today are: The Enchanted Tiki Room, Peter Pan’s Flight, It’s A Small World, The Jungle Cruise, Hall of Presidents and The Haunted Mansion.
Disney is always evolving and creating new “magic”. The newest ride addition is the 7 Dwarfs Mine Train which opened on May 28, 2014 and there are always rumors of new lands/expansions. Disney is also still testing the new magicbands everyone receives when booking a Disney Vacation. You even get to choose the color of your bands. These bands will store all your pre-booked fast passes, dining reservations, etc.
There is so much that Disney offers from kids pirate adventures to mini-golf to a campfire with Chip and Dale where you eat s’mores, sing songs and then see an outdoor Disney movie to renting a pontoon boat and watching the Epcot Illuminations Fireworks/Laser show from the lake to trading pins with Disney Cast Members to seeing the Osborne Christmas lights at Epcot in December. There truly is something for everyone. How to describe Walt Disney World:
4 Theme Parks, 2 Water Parks, Shopping, Dining, 20+Themed Resorts, Recreation, Pixie Dust
Here are some of my top picks for rides, hotels and dining while at Walt Disney World:
Rides: Some of my personal favorite rides that I never miss are: Toy Story Mania and the Aerosmith Rock n Roller Coaster in Hollywood Studios, Mickey’s Philharmagic and Pirates of the Caribbean in Magic Kingdom, Test Track and Soaring in Epcot and Adventure Everest and the Lion King Show in Animal Kingdom. A trip to Disney would not be complete without seeing the Electrical Parade and Fireworks in Magic Kingdom.
Hotels: Animal Kingdom Lodge, the Polynesian or Art of Animation
Restaurants: O’Hana at the Polynesian, Boma at Animal Kingdom Lodge, Donald’s Safari Breakfast in Animal Kingdom, Princess Storybook Breakfast in Epcot, Whispering Canyon (for kids) at Wilderness Lodge, Hoop Dee Doo Dinner Show at Fort Wilderness, Narcoosee’s at the Grand Floridian, Yachtsman Steakhouse at the Yacht Club and Beaches & Cream Soda Shop at the Beach Club
I also love traveling in September/October when the parks are not as crowded and Disney’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is going on. This event requires separate admission but is a lot of fun with trick or treat stations and a special parade with fireworks led by the headless horseman and featuring some of our favorite Disney Villains.
