Our Journey As some of you know, Brent and I were riding high on our travel journeys and onboard the February 21, 2020, 15 day sailing of the Grand Princess. This is when we first encountered the five letter abbreviation we now no as COVID. I really dislike even saying it, so lets just call it "our nemisis." This is when traveling and vacationing changed for all of us. Even though we were quarantined on the ship and at an Airforce base for awhile. Nothing has changed our love of travel and helping all our clients take the vacation they desire through these times. We keep up to date on destinations and what is needed to stay as safe as possible from our nemisis. We at Beck Travel pride ourselves on advising not only destinations, flights, resorts, and excursions, but also have vendors available with travel protection plans to protect you during your journeys. Please enjoy our first Newsletter! _____ Jo Anne and Beckwith
What about cruising?
August brought the start of cruise ships as 190 ships representing 65 brands started operating with guests on board. Some of the difference you will see if buffets are now on hold but seated dining has expanded. You will have to wear a mask indoors on a cruise ship except when eating and drinking. The Beckwith's are heading out on our first cruise since cruising restart in October of this year and have been booking many cruises for others. If you have any other questions or interested in booking, please contact us.
