Top tips for female business travellers - Business Review Europe: ". . . In general, an outgoing personality encounters more security risks than those with an introverted character. Being careful about attire is important as designer clothes and jewellery attract attention. . . . Research the security situation prior to travel and understand the areas that are considered safe and unsafe. Are there cultural sensitivities? What is the status of women in business and society? What languages are spoken? Are bare arms and legs permitted or appropriate? . . . Be a hard target - Arrange to be met at the airport by a company or hotel car or even better, by a colleague or friend. Avoid unlicensed taxis, ensure mobiles are switched to roaming prior to travel, carry a list of key contacts, book a room on the third floor or higher and ask for women-only floors if available. Never accept food or drink from a stranger. #4 – Confidence and assertiveness . . . " read more here
Boutiqe British cruise line launches revamped Voyager: "The ship, which has been decorated in an explorer theme, offers open-seating dining in three restaurants, including a specialty venue, The Explorer Club. Other amenities include Scott's Lounge, a classic piano bar; a panoramic lounge at the front of the ship; and a terrace with an all-weather area for outdoor dining as part of the Veranda restaurant. . . The ship, which offers passengers soft adventure, is small enough to visit lesser-known destinations. It will stay in port longer than typical cruises, and feature lectures by experts on the areas visited. After its 20-day sailing to Barbados, Voyager will sail in the Caribbean and offer a 20-day sailing through the Chilean fjords, and visit Buenos Aires. Other trips will call on Uruguay and Brazil, the Amazon and Venezuela. For more information and booking, visit VoyagesofDiscovery.com." more travel news below
The times are changin' on Cuba--policy and travel--
MIAMI: Obama maintains standing with Cuban-Americans - Politics Wires - MiamiHerald.com: "The door for travel to Cuba cracked open during President Barack Obama's first term.
Cuban-Americans can now visit family on the island as often as they like. Americans can travel legally as part of an academic or religious trip.
Perhaps it's for this reason that Obama's standing with the Cuban-American community in Florida stayed largely steady on Election Day, even though the modest openings with Cuba have riled some of South Florida's more conservative exiles. Exit polling showed that 49 percent of Cuban-Americans voted for the Democrat, roughly the same percentage as four years ago.
At the same time, Florida voters sent to the House a Cuban-American Democrat from Miami who supports Obama's expansion of travel and remittances to Cuba while still favoring the 50-year-old embargo that limits American trade with the communist country. . . The victories by supporters of looser restrictions on Cuba travel illustrate changing attitudes of Americans who hail from the island nation: They seem to be less resistant to politicians who promote travel to Cuba and more focused on more traditional American concerns such as the economy, rather than Cuba policy. Those shifting attitudes could have implications for U.S. policy toward Cuba in the next four years, as well as how presidential candidates and politicians approach Cuban-Americans in Florida, an important swing state, in the future. . . .

Go over the fiscal cliff? Unintended consequences follow--
WASHINGTON: Air travel at risk of sharp decline - Business - MiamiHerald.com: "If Congress and the White House fail to deliver a deal on spending and taxes, funding for an array of federal transportation programs could suffer. But the bigger impact could result from an economic downturn that reduces travel and transportation demand. A Fitch Ratings report last month warned that the fiscal cliff would drive the U.S. economy into a new recession and unemployment back to 10 percent. In 2009, domestic and international travel declined 5.3 percent from the year before, and Fitch forecasts that it could decline as much as 5 percent next year if the fiscal cliff triggers a broader downturn. The aviation system would face a huge slowdown with potential cutbacks in operations and personnel, but air travel also would decline in a slowing economy. Highway and transit spending depends on the federal gasoline tax, and that would decline if Americans cut back on driving. Lower demand for consumer goods would hurt trucking companies, freight railroads and port operators. Meanwhile, the Federal Aviation Administration would face a mandatory $1 billion budget cut that could result in fewer air traffic controllers and more delays for the implementation of NextGen, the advanced aircraft guidance system that replaces decades-old technology. The Transportation Security Administration would be required to cut more than $500 million, which likely would lead to fewer security screeners and air marshals, resulting in longer lines at the nation’s airports. . . ."

You had to go on a seven day Caribbean cruise with your family.” Okay, so it really wasn’t all that tough, but I’m not going to lie, it was trying at times. It was my father’s request, who was celebrating his 60th birthday, to go on a family trip, young kids included. We were quite the crew of fourteen people, running around airports and cruise ship ports. Even though Scott and I don’t have any kids of our own, I did learn a few things about how to keep my nieces and nephews entertained while making sure I stayed sane."
Decoding cruise deals during Wave Season | Fox News: "We’re also heading into Wave Season, which is the Black Friday and Cyber Monday of the cruise world. But instead of one day, this sale lasts for three full months, running from January through March.
Every year during this time, cruise lines roll out special deals, perks and upgrades in order to entice travelers to book early for their departures later in the year. However, beyond the frequent cruiser, it’s surprising how many other travelers are unaware of this season, and also unaware of the savings that can be had on ocean voyages all over the globe.
The problem is that if you’re a first time cruiser, this time of year can also be dizzying with the array of choices you have.
In fact, there are so many different ships, offers and promotions, it’s difficult to know where to start and even tougher to discern a mediocre deal from the bargains you shouldn’t pass up. With the start of the season just a few weeks away, I’ve put together a handy guide to help you narrow down your options and book the ideal cruise to fit both your lifestyle and your travel budget." more travel news below

Port upgrades paying off for Miami | State | Bradenton Herald: "Now, cruise operators say they are embracing Miami for a host of reasons: proximity to Miami International Airport, which offers direct flights for cruise passengers both domestic and international; the responsiveness of PortMiami officials to their needs and the appeal of Miami as a destination unto itself. "We, like everyone else, positioned ourselves in places that people want to go to," Del Rio said. "People want to come to Miami." Also a bonus is the relative strength of the Caribbean after a bleak summer in Europe due to continued fallout of the Jan. 13 Costa Concordia shipwreck in Italy, the shaky European economy and high cost of airfare from the U.S. "Whether you're talking about the U.S. economy or talking about the European economy, it's been a tough time for consumers," said Gerry Cahill, president and CEO of Miami-based Carnival Cruise Lines.

Cubans can leave, but to where and with what?: "November 11. 2012 - HAVANA — Vladimir Maiquil, 50, casts his fishing line off Havana's seafront boulevard, the Malecón, into the waters of the Florida Straits, 90 miles from America.
"I'd love to travel and have the opportunity to see the world," Maiquil says, "but how can I afford the flight? I've got no chance. It's almost impossible."
For decades, Cuba has been a country whose government would not let its people leave. But in October, it announced a lifting of the despised travel ban to begin in January.
The announcement cheered Cubans as well as millions of Cuban Americans whose families have escaped the island since its takeover by communists. But it is unlikely the change will result in a tidal wave of Cuban travelers.
The new law means that beginning Jan. 14, Cubans will no longer have to apply for a costly exception to the travel ban, known as an exit visa, or show a letter of invitation from a person in the intended destination. . . "
