In February 2018, I’ll be taking a two week trip to the Florida Keys and the Eastern Caribbean to promote tourism in the areas hit by Hurricanes Irma and Maria and to highlight to need for more tourists to visit these recovering areas.
Interested in getting involved with my efforts to help promote tourism in these storm-hit areas? Here are three things you can do:
- Come with me! In addition to its Eastern Caribbean itinerary, with stops in three of the most hard-hit ports, the February 25th sailing of Silhouette was an attractive option because it still has a lot of empty cabins, and it’s only about 6 weeks until the cruise’s departure. Celebrity would rather fill those cabins with people, so they’re offering some great deals, especially if someone in your party is 55 or older! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like pricing details. (For reference, we’re talking about a week-long Celebrity cruise from about $550-$900 per person, including the taxes. If you’ve cruised Celebrity, you know this is a pretty low price!)
- Tell me where to go! No, not like that, haha. Part of my planning will involve taking recommendations for locally-owned restaurants, bars, and (for the Keys) hotels to patronize. If you have a favorite beach bar in St. Maarten, seafood restaurant in the Keys, etc., send me a message at email@example.com and I’ll do my best to go there, and write about it for the blog, as long as the place has been reopened.
- Buy me a beer! No pressure, of course, but if you’d like to subsidize my efforts, I’d happily accept your donations. You can click here to send me money via PayPal. You can combine with #2 and tell me where you’d like me to spend your vicarious tourist dollars. I’ll make sure to include pictures on the blog!
Stay tuned for updates on my travels in late February 2018, right here on the blog.
