Best winter cruise deals in Caribbean

Playa de Cayo LevantadoImage via Wikipedia Winnipeg Free Press: "It looks as if the best deals on cruising this winter are going to be in the Caribbean, with newer ships and giants such as Allure, Oasis and Epic all fighting for the same market.
We've seen a lot of price-cutting already, and I'd suggest there will be more of it deeper into the winter season. Having said that, prices for most other areas of the world are up, even for the re-positioning of ships in the spring, when the opposite is the norm.
That $899 14-day trip starting price this fall will be more than $1,000 next year."

Forbes   I recently spent a week in  Turks and Caicos , my first time out of the country since the pandemic hit. Like many Caribbean countries, Turks and Caicos rely  almost entirely on tourism  to power their economy, so they’re desperate for travelers to return. I’m happy to report that these beautiful beaches felt like an escape from the despair of this global pandemic, and here’s how they are keeping travelers safe.

Air Canada to charge for second checked bags in Canada

thestar.com : "MONTREAL — Air Canada has followed the lead of rival WestJet and will begin charging fliers who check a second bag on trips within Canada and to the Caribbean, Costa Rica and Mexico. Canada’s largest carrier said a $20 fee will be charged for passengers buying economy class tickets as of Thursday for flights beginning Jan. 19, the same day that WestJet will begin levying the fee. The first checked bag remains free for both airlines.

Caribbean dreams, Del. realities

Delaware Online My family and I spent "primary week" on the rugged, verdant Caribbean island of St. Lucia. We vacationed at a beautiful bluff-top villa owned (coincidentally) by the family of Democratic State Senate candidate Dee Durham, who unfortunately lost her primary. But more about that later. Ah, St. Lucia! Clear blue waters. Spectacular sunsets. Plenty of lagoons for diving and snorkeling. Outstanding cuisine. Impeccable service. A live volcano. No TV. Perhaps most importantly, a new favorite beer: Piton, named after St. Lucia's famous "twin peaks." Just a week of sun, fun, the printed word, and family togetherness.
