Why an All-Inclusive Spring Break Vacation with Your Family is the Best Idea

I’ll admit it. The idea of an all-inclusive vacation never really appealed to me. It sounded… well… boring.

My family and I are always seeking out thrilling adventures, and the thought of being confined to a resort didn’t quite spark excitement. That is, until an all-inclusive spring break vacation to the picturesque shores of Puerto Vallarta completely changed my perspective!

If you’re anything like me – a working parent with an active family – finding that perfect vacation destination can be a daunting challenge. The myriad of options available requires extensive research to ensure a trip that guarantees your kids have the time of their lives, while still adhering to your budget.

At one point, the allure of a Florida condo seemed like a fantastic idea – until reality set in, and I found myself cooking, cleaning, and doing laundry – essentially relocating our home to a warmer climate. The “vacation” quickly lost its appeal!

But then, destiny intervened, and I stumbled upon the secret to an unforgettable family getaway. Hi, I’m Jenny Scheckel, Fox World Travel’s Marketing Manager! Last year, I, too, was an all-inclusive skeptic until my incredible travel advisor here at Fox enlightened me about the extraordinary benefits of staying at an all-inclusive resort. Trust me; this revelation transformed the way I now plan our vacations!

Join me as I reveal the hidden gems of an all-inclusive spring break vacation with your family. From indulging in world-class amenities to venturing into the heart of breathtaking destinations, there’s more to these all-inclusive havens than meets the eye. Say goodbye to the ordinary and embrace an extraordinary vacation experience that will leave you with memories to cherish forever!

What’s for Dinner?

Ugh, the dreaded question. It was such a treat to have a break from meal planning because all-inclusive resorts offer wonderful options that cater to even the pickiest eaters. That’s where all-inclusive spring break vacations come in. However, traveling with 3 kids to Mexico sounded like a challenge. It is safe? The airports are hectic. How will they manage? Honestly, it was so easy! Our non-stop flight got us there fast and we had a private car take us to the hotel. We were on the beach enjoying kiddie cocktails (and adult cocktails) by noon.

I am bored!

Yep! Not hearing those words was a nice break too. There is so much to enjoy! Water parks, splash pads, beach activities, golfing, spa treatments and so much more! Plus, the evening activities changed every night and included family-friendly evening shows and activities. Art, games, live music, desserts – even a mechanical bull riding contest. Plus, the people-watching was hilarious!

Save money?

Yes, please. If you are like me, I am always searching for a good deal, and travel advisors are the best source to help find them. All-inclusive resorts are wonderful in this regard because nearly everything is included – which keeps you from overspending in destination.

Quality time!

We spent every day together and it was surprisingly wonderfully relaxing. Building sandcastles, afternoon pool activities, dancing to live music, exploring beach huts, drinking from coconuts, and learning to boogie board – It was a perfect combination of relaxation and fun!

 

Whether your family is interested in exploring new destinations or simply enjoying a relaxing break with all amenities provided, all-inclusive spring break vacations offer something for everyone. You deserve an opportunity to rest and recharge with your family! Enjoy an unforgettable vacation without spending a fortune. Book your all-inclusive spring break vacation now and get ready to create unforgettable memories.

Top 5 Perks of Using a Travel Advisor

Hello travelers! I’m Leah Heier, one of Fox’s virtual travel advisors. With 30 years of experience, I know that planning a trip can be exciting, but it can also be so overwhelming. In today’s digital age, many people turn to the internet for travel planning, relying on online booking sites and review platforms. However, a valuable resource often goes unnoticed: travel advisors.

We are knowledgeable professionals who bring a wealth of expertise and personalized service to the table, making your travel planning experience seamless and enjoyable. Read along as I talk about the top five perks of using a travel advisor to assist you in planning your trips!

#1: Expert Guidance and Destination Knowledge

One of the most significant advantages of working with a travel advisor is their expert guidance and extensive destination knowledge. They possess firsthand experience and up-to-date information on various destinations, including the best times to visit, must-see attractions, local customs, and hidden gems. Whether you’re dreaming of a beach getaway, a cultural expedition, or an adventurous trip, a travel advisor can offer valuable insights and tailor your itinerary to match your preferences, ensuring an unforgettable travel experience.

 

#2: Time and Stress Savings

Planning a trip can be time-consuming and overwhelming, especially if you have a busy schedule. A travel advisor can save you valuable time by taking care of all the research, bookings, and logistics. They have access to an extensive network of suppliers, including airlines, hotels, tour operators, and transportation services, allowing them to secure the best deals and handle all the intricate details of your trip. By entrusting your travel plans to a professional, you can relax and focus on anticipating your journey rather than stressing over the logistics.

#3: Customized Itineraries and Personalized Service

Travel advisors excel at creating customized itineraries that cater to your specific interests, preferences, and budget. They take the time to understand your travel goals, whether it’s a family vacation, a romantic getaway, or a solo adventure. Based on your preferences, they can suggest unique experiences, recommend off-the-beaten-path attractions, and arrange special touches such as surprise celebrations or exclusive tours. With their personalized service, a travel advisor ensures that your trip reflects your individuality and exceeds your expectations.

#4: Access to Exclusive Benefits and Upgrades

Travel advisors often have access to exclusive benefits and perks that are not available to the general public. They have established relationships with hotels, cruise lines, and tour operators, which can translate into complimentary upgrades, welcome amenities, spa credits, or even VIP treatment during your travels. By booking through a travel advisor, you can enjoy added value and unique experiences that enhance your trip, making it even more memorable.

 

#5: Peace of Mind and Support

Perhaps one of the most significant advantages of using a travel advisor is the peace of mind and support they provide throughout your journey. In case of unexpected changes or disruptions, such as flight cancellations, natural disasters, or medical emergencies, your travel advisor acts as your advocate, assisting with rebooking, rearranging itineraries, and providing guidance. They are there to support you every step of the way, ensuring that your travel experience is as smooth and stress-free as possible.

Working with a travel advisor offers numerous benefits that can enhance your travel planning and overall vacation experience. From their destination expertise and time-saving assistance to personalized service and access to exclusive perks, a travel advisor brings value and peace of mind to your journey. So, the next time you embark on a trip, consider enlisting the help of a travel advisor and unlock a world of possibilities for an unforgettable travel experience.

With over 40 years in the travel industry and having traveled with my own family, I’ve nailed down some of the best family-friendly destinations out there! Traveling with your family is a wonderful way to create memories that will last a lifetime.

Here are five family-friendly destinations outside of the US that you might want to consider for your next family vacation.

Choose How YOU Cruise

Hello! My name is Elizabeth Klitzka, Vacation Travel Advisor in our Sheboygan office. With a career in the travel industry for nearly 28 years, I know a thing or two about the best ways to travel.

Personally, cruising is my favorite way to see multiple destinations in a short period of time. Whether you’re contemplating your first cruise or you’re a Captains Club Member, this snapshot will help you shine a little light on the different cruise lines so you can make the best decision on your vacation.

It’s time to kick back, spray a little coconut sunscreen, and start your personal checklist on which cruise line will be best for your next extraordinary journey!

 

Princess Cruises: Relax & Recharge.

Known as the original Love Boat, Princess Cruises is a classic and classy line with a very relaxed, rejuvenating atmosphere. The culinary is a gourmet experience. The casino offers a spike in energy. The signature-crafted lounges with evening beverages, make you feel at home; like you’re meeting up with old friends.

Known for fine wine, live music, and fantastic food and drinks, I would describe the Princess Cruises experience like “a date night at sea.”  The ships have a central Piazza – a gathering place in the evenings, there you will find the Crown Grill and Salty Dog specialty restaurants.

Personally, I appreciate the class and epic beauty found in every detail of the ships’ lavish experiences.  While this ship plays well in the Caribbean, it plays just as beautifully in the Alaskan waters… just ask any of the MANY cruisers who are loyal to Princess.

BONUS! Every Princess ship is now Medallion Class® which is phenomenal because you are provided a medallion to wear. Swipe for drinks, open your cabin door, and it also locates you on the ship for room service, drinks or sunscreen (delivered right to your chair!) Equally, locate your friends and family at anytime so you’re always connected.

 

 

Norwegian Cruises: Cuisine Variety.

While I haven’t personally sailed on NCL, one of my parent clients, Kelly, ventured on NCL with her children. Here’s her perspective.

As a mother of two kids, ages 9 & 11, the sailing was truly a wonderful opportunity for a family getaway. Our ship had a kid pool, water slides and a huge zipline with a ropes course park.

The food variety was appealing for all ages, and the additional restaurants (included in the plan) were exceptional. (My kids loved the Japanese Noodle Bar.) Specialty restaurants like the steakhouse, hibachi and sushi were exquisite and entertaining… I’ve never had a Japanese hibachi chef chop and dance to “We will ROCK YOU!”  The food on this cruise line won me over – excellent variety!

 

BONUS! Harvest Cay is NCL’s private island in Belize hosts their famous Superman Zipline!

 

 

Royal Caribbean Cruises: Theme Park at Sea.

Every ship has an entertainment specialty, however, when people think of pool parties and conga lines—this is the line the join!  From cornhole tournaments to limbo to the highly coveted, Sexiest Man on the Ship title, the competitions are a blast!

If you prefer wine pairings, tequila tastings, there is plenty to keep you busy. Equally, the Zip line, rock climbing wall, miniature golf, ice skating and water slides keep even the pickiest people from becoming bored.

On the newer and larger ship there are seven neighborhoods on board. Royal Promenade, The Boardwalk, Central Park, The pool and Sports Zone, Vitality at Sea Spa, Entertainment Place and the Youth Zone. Something to do for everyone all ages. Just know when you sail with RCCL, your access to every experience is at your fingertips.

BONUS! On the Caribbean cruises, Royal Caribbean has their own private island called Perfect Day at Coco Cay and it is a beach lovers’ paradise.

 

 

Disney Cruise Line: Personalized Family Time.

Expect nothing but the finest from Disney vacations – including the Disney Cruise Line. From the moment you board the ship, you’re greeted by name – even upon arriving for dinner – so it is truly a personal experience.

Disney Cruise Lines also caters to your youngest travelers with their state-of-the-art kids’ clubs, kid-centric menus and even waitstaff that will cut the meat for the little one’s plates.

Also topping the list for fun are themed parties the whole family will love. #PirateNight!  Enjoy the impressive movie theaters as well as complementary in-cabin movies. While it may sound lame, when kids need a break, this is a true gift.

Our Dream Team are experts at planning everything Disney! Reach out to our team of experts for more information.

BONUS! Castaway Cay is Disney’s PRIVATE Island in the Bahamas which includes free lunch, non-alcoholic beverages and an absolute TON of events and excursions to experience. The sting ray experience and snorkel park are awesome!

 

 

 

Cruises have evolved. There was a time when you felt nickel and dimed from the moment you stepped aboard. Now you have all-inclusive packages including drinks, gratuities, specialty dining and Wi-Fi.

Your endless options depend upon the cruise line you choose.  Every cruise line offers unique experiences and perks. Hopefully this summary provides perspective on the variety of cruises, the vibe and experience options.

 

What works for YOU?

High Energy or Low Key

Pool Parties or Serenity Pool

Quality, Reasonable Food or Premium, High-End Restaurants

Kids of all Ages or Adult-Centric

Included Alcoholic Beverages or Ala Carte

Diverse Specialty Restaurants or Buffet and Main Dining Staples

Deb Schnieder

Deb was born and raised in England and has always had a passion for exploration. Growing up in England allowed her to spend summers venturing to the ‘sea side’ along with the Isle of Wight and France.

After graduating, she set off for Australia for a backpacking adventure! While exploring the outback, her family relocated to Minnesota. (No they were not trying to ditch her.)

She joined her family in the U.S. and started her higher education studies in Media and Music Production where she met her travelling soulmate and husband. Together they explored Tasmania, Australia, Malaysia, Thailand, Mexico and Western Europe.

Deb’s travel career began as a Premium Services Agent with United Airlines which enabled her to explore the world with her growing family! Her airline experience allowed her family the opportunity to explore many places.

Deb joined Fox World Travel in the Group Vacations department in 2022 – a place she now calls ‘home’ – and is so excited to share her passion for global exploration with other travelers. Whether she’s climbing the Giant’s Causeway steps in Northern Ireland, exploring Alaska and Denali with Rose or tasting an authentic Nasi lemak dish in Eastern Asia, Deb relishes in the chance to show other people some of the many amazing wonders of travel – experiencing the places, culture, sights, tastes and sounds you can only find if you open a map!

When Deb is not traveling, you can find her spending time with her husband and 3 amazing children. Deb is a professional skydiver (though these days she prefers to land in the plane), a certified scuba diver and an equestrian eventer. While she hasn’t competed in a couple years, she still takes every opportunity to join her friends in any activity where she can ride!

 

Debbie King

Travel has been Debbie’s passion since college when she ventured to Spain for the first time. It was life changing! Her travel profession has taken many roads, from a vacation travel advisor, a pivot to corporate travel managing meetings and incentive programs, and now her current passion as a group travel tour manager.

Debbie’s passion is interacting with the Fox tour guests. Nothing is more rewarding than introducing her groups to a new, life-changing travel experience. “Travel opens the mind and enriches my spirit.” She believes the immersive experience is just as important as the destination.

Debbie’s most recent group travel experience includes exploring the beauty of Switzerland as well as the best of the Hawaiian Islands – the ultimate tropical vacation. She has a number of amazing adventures coming up including the legendary Danube River cruise with Prague.

Some of her most cherished experiences include tasting shrimp bisque at a Princess Hotel in Bermuda, taking a train through the Swiss Alps in winter to Gstaad, seeing the Eiffel Tower glittering at night for the first time, walking through the Sistine Chapel in Rome, and having the privilege of dining in a home in Sarajevo and listening to the stories of a family who lived there through four years of the Bosnian war.

 

Erin Stair

Erin’s passion for travel started in her teens while taking yearly cruises with her family. She realized her love for all of it, from planning and packing to the hustle – bustle of the airports and exploring new destinations and cultures.

She became a Flight Attendant for Milwaukee’s home-based airline, Midwest Express, shortly after graduating high school. After 13 years of flying, during which she relocated to live and commute from the sunny beaches of Mexico’s Riviera Maya, she stayed and began working in the resorts. She held positions as Concierge, Spa Representative, and Tour & Transportation Sales Manager.

Building a partnership in her own destination wedding planning business in Mexico led to more expertise, and a continuing passion for budgeting, creating, organizing, executing events, and most importantly, building relationships with her clients and their wedding guests to help make dreams became reality!

Erin returned to the USA, joined the Fox World Travel Family in September 2022, and is looking forward to exploring unfamiliar places, getting to know new faces, and continuing to be a part of making amazing travel memories.

Kate was born and raised in Oshkosh and moved to Boston in early adulthood where she began her travel career for a tour company. She had the opportunity to test a new safari trip in Kenya. This experience ignited her passion for travelling!
