John's Travel Update November 4, 2022

Happy November! Are you ready to "fall back"? I'm not! So to help me deal with it, I love to plan trips to tropical locations (for myself, too). Everyone loves a beach-y trip! Here are some things that caught my eye this week:

Disney News Updates

Disney Cruise Line Modifies

Health & Safety Protocols

  • Beginning Nov. 14, 2022, for sailings departing from the United States, Disney Cruise Line will no longer require Guests (regardless of vaccination status) to provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test prior to sailing. This basically means you no longer need to test prior to sailing or at the port. If you're departing from an international port: this will be effective February 1, 2023.

Fodor's Announces
"New Best Places To Go"

After two years of recommending only domestic destinations - Fodor's is announcing some International Destinations this year! Where? Check it out:

  • Japan: Newly reopened after lifting tight COVID restrictions and thanks to a favorable dollar-to-yen exchange rate, this country is welcoming U.S. travelers with the lowest prices in decades.

  • Oahu, Hawaii: This is where residents are rejuvenating resorts and recommitting tourism hot spots to preserving and celebrating Native Hawaiian heritage.

  • Maratea, Italy: This is a less crowded cousin (although every bit as stunning) to the world-famous Amalfi Coast.

  • Mexico's Yucatán Peninsula: This is your warning: growth is coming and if you want to visit before the changes - this is your chance!

  • Colorado's Camp Hale: This was a training area for World War II soldiers that's now a newly designated national monument protecting 54,000 acres of prime hiking, camping, and mountain biking territory high in the Rocky Mountains.
