Fort Lauderdale, FL — October 1, 2013
Vacation dreams are made of this: circumnavigating the globe in luxury and style, elephant rides in Thailand, visiting hundreds of UNESCO Heritage Sites, exploring the ancient ruins of Pompeii, whale watching in the Baja.   For many, these dream vacations stay just that. With a cruise, dream vacations can be an easy, accessible and affordable reality, especially during Cruise Lines International Association’s (CLIA) National Cruise Vacation Week, Oct. 20 – 27, 2013.
