As you Preview Cruise Vacation Advisor you will notice a different kind of travel and cruise information website.
It seems that when making travel plans the first thing most people do is look at travel specials and itineraries; perhaps, they look at reviews and destination information. However, a great trip starts from the time you get the idea, as well as good preparation.
Cruise Vacation Advisor discusses the intangible factors that make for a great vacation, not the specials and itineraries.
This site goes into details of the "how to" of planning for travel; and, the "how to" of identifying a good travel agent.
On this website and in published articles I also provide information about building your own niche website.
You'll get information on "why" you should approach travel and cruise planning with certain types of relationships in mind. You will also get information about free, cheap, or discount travel.
When you preview Cruise Vacation Advisor you will find that I refer to travel professionals by various titles. I use different titles (willy-nilly, so to speak) to stress the point that much of the information provided is transferable to any area of travel, regardless of specialization.
As you read, feel free to use whatever title you prefer. For example, interchange cruise agent for vacation planner, travel professional for travel agent, cruise planner for trip advisor, travel agent for cruise agent, and so on. You will get information later on the things to look for in a good (great) travel professional. You’ll get information on how to “rate” your agent.
This web page, Travel Agent, Trip Advisor, etc. What's in a Name? provides insight as to why you can interchange titles.
Of course, if you have never used a travel agent, you may want to start with this web page: What is a Travel Agent.
The over-all aim of Cruise Vacation Advisor is to provide you with facts, ideas, advice and tidbits of information to make your trip a great, great experience. In fact, Da-z-z-ling is the one satisfying word about your cruise experience that would signal, Mission Accomplished!
The Home Page is tier-one.
The links in the navigational column on the left side (except for the Home Page) will take you to tier-two pages.
All tier two pages have links that will take you to various third tier pages. Some of these tier-three pages are listed in the left navigation column. Most of them are in the Directory.
However, not all third tier pages are shown. You can only get to those “hidden” pages when you click the appropriate link within the tier-two page. The purpose for this method of navigation is to provide you with organized, interrelated information as a grouping.
Last but not least, you will find links to other websites that provide you with information related to the subjects on this site.
