Most of us know the obvious mistakes not to make when traveling to Orlando—missing the 180-day mark for Disney dining reservations or neglecting to pre-reserve Disney FastPass+ service. But there are some very important, often forgotten missteps for the luxury traveler that could make the difference between a good and great vacation.
It's so important to have the true necessities with you for a comfortable and stress-free vacation, so there are some things I absolutely will not travel without. Here are a few of my always-pack essentials.
Walt Disney World® Resort guests can enjoy personalized service by staying in a Club Level room at a Deluxe Resort, receiving full access to an exclusive Club Level Lounge once they arrive.
Those cruisers who have already seen Rome and just can’t bear to take the 1.5-hour trip there and back from the port of Civitavecchia should absolutely consider a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Tarquinia and Cerveteri, two Etruscan cemeteries reflecting two very different burial practices.
It took five trips to Italy to finally make it to the island of my dreams, Capri. Something always seemed to get in the way, so when I found out the Silver Muse made a stop at Sorrento on my sailing, the very first thing I did was line up a private tour guide to make the most of our day there.
On all luxury cruise ships, public spaces are of the utmost importance since they are the places you’ll spend much of your waking hours, particularly on sea days. And Silver Muse does not in any way disappoint.
Set within Disney's Polynesian Village Resort is the Disney Vacation Club option of waterside bungalows along the shore of the resort, and Studio Villas located in the remodeled longhouses of Tokelau, Moorea, and Pago Pago. Here mid-century modern design meets traditional Polynesian style with a South Pacific vibe.
Signature dining is a big deal on the Silver Muse, particularly since there is no main dining room to speak of. So do your homework (or have your travel advisor do it for you) and make nightly dining reservations before your cruise begins.
