Scam avoidance necessary when traveling creatively, says Caribbean Cruise Line
Published on March 5, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

CORAL SPRINGS, USA -- According to Caribbean Cruise Line, scam artists are prevalent throughout the travel industry, making it hard for any family to trust any offer that may be presented with to embark on a great vacation. However, if one stays aware of how to remain secure and informed throughout travel, these instances can be avoided.

A recent press statement quotes Caribbean Cruise Line, "Scams are fervent in this industry and others, but that does not mean families cannot travel safely. In fact, with the right opportunity they can pursue vacations creatively and on a budget."

In terms of creative vacationing, a recent Huffington Post article highlights that many Americans are forgoing typical New Year's resolutions to lose weight or quit smoking, and are instead opting to attempt to travel more. The article encourages a creative approach to travel, urging the adventurous to take a closer look at what hidden opportunities lie in every destination.

It states, "No matter your locale, there are countless museums, unusual stores, neighborhood restaurants and parks and most importantly, people that can enrich your local journey!"

The article offers three tips to make travel more creative and more approachable: travel within one's own hometown, make a themed vacation or rely on unique modes of transportation.

As for the latter suggestion, Caribbean Cruise Line indicates that cruises can prove one of the most unique forms of transportation that enables passengers to get incredibly close to the beauty of the open sea and countless tropical islands. However, this travel company notes that traveling creatively does come with some risk.

According to Caribbean Cruise Line, scams are best avoided if families carefully plan their approach and go through verified travel companies to arrange for every step of the journey.

In order to provide an example of how arranged, yet fun travel can be free of risks of scam, Caribbean Cruise Line details one of its opportunities, "Our Bahamas Celebration Cruise Ship offers the perfect family vacation, and Grand Bahama Island is the perfect family destination. Our fun-filled cruise ship offers three Kid's Clubs to cater to each age group, as well as our Pirates of the Caribbean Water Park for the little tikes. On shore, adults can have the time of their lives swimming, snorkeling, fishing, parasailing and horseback riding."

While the company understands that today's public is often more skeptical of optimal travel deals, it continues to take action against illegitimate actions in the industry through its Caribbean Cruise Line Scam Watch.
