Private Jetaway® Launches a Timely Ultraluxe Service for the Wealthy – Revenge Travel

The private jet & luxury travel company offers the rich extraordinary travel experiences for getting revenge on being cooped up for over a year.

As the travel and tourism industry continues to open from the COVID-19 pandemic, Private Jetaway®, a luxury travel company with private jet-to-villa turn-key packages, continues to enhance their services with “Revenge Travel”. After being stuck at home for over a year, Americans are hitting the roads and skies in droves. Revenge travel is a dominating factor as many households make summer plans to visit family and play tourist.

Revenge travel is a fun new term for travelers. This year people are more eager to go on vacation and less willing than ever before to cancel their plans in the wake of coronavirus shutdowns-and this trend shows no sign of slowing down! Many travelers are getting vaccinated just for an opportunity at revenge travels after being stuck home this past year; but now it is time they head out into the world once again.

“We are here to make that experience comfortable and convenient while incorporating proper protocols,” says Wayne J. Rizzi, President of Private Jetaway®. “Unlike other private jet and luxury travel companies that piecemeal their partnerships, Private Jetaway® offers ultraluxe packages inclusive of ground transport, private jet and luxury villa intricately designed for each valued guest with one call.”

As an example, Private Jetaway® partnered with both Elegant Mexico, whose portfolio offers luxury private villa rentals at the heart of Los Cabos, and the Zadún, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, the latest resort in the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Reserve portfolio in San José del Cabo. Private Jetaway® offers their “UltraLuxe Jet-to-Villa Retreat™” packages with both partners.

Royal Caribbean Makes Long-awaited Return To The Caribbean

Adventure of the Seas Sails from The Bahamas with Fully Vaccinated Crew and Guests

A milestone more than 15 months in the making: Royal Caribbean International and the communities of the Caribbean are celebrating the cruise line’s highly anticipated return to the region as Adventure of the Seas prepares to set sail from Nassau, The Bahamas yesterday. The first of Royal Caribbean’s ships to resume cruising in the Western Hemisphere, Adventure welcomed more than 1,000 vacationers on its opening cruise. The ship set sail with fully vaccinated crew and fully vaccinated guests 16 years of age or older, who make up 94% of all guests on board while the remaining 6% are children younger than 16. The ship now begins a summer lineup of 7-night sailings to Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s game-changing private island destination in The Bahamas; Grand Bahama Island, The Bahamas; and Cozumel, Mexico.

“The return of Adventure of the Seas marks a start in the tremendous step forward our guests have been waiting for and we’ve been working toward for more than 15 months. This is all possible thanks to the government of The Bahamas, the support of our partners and the hard work of our teams across Royal Caribbean,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “We are excited to welcome back our guests and crew, and help our Caribbean family regain the benefits of tourism their communities depend on. This is just the beginning, as we get ready to set sail from the U.S. for the first time on July 2.”  

Hot on the heels of the cruise line’s return to the Caribbean, 11 Royal Caribbean ships are set to cruise from the U.S. and Europe once again, beginning in July and August. The complete lineup of Royal Caribbean’s 2021 cruises is available here.

Healthy and Safety Measures for Adventure of the Seas Bahamas Cruises

Vacationers sailing on Adventure can cruise with peace of mind, knowing that all crew members and guests are tested and fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Travelers 16 years of age or older must be fully vaccinated, and as of Aug. 1, guests age 12 or older. Vacationers younger than the eligible age must undergo testing and follow other protocols. The vaccine requirement is one of the many layers of measures that safeguard the well-being of our guests and crew as well as the communities we visit. These additional health and safety protocols include our fully vaccinated crew, testing, the robust onboard ventilation system, enhanced cleaning and sanitization. A full list of the travel requirements for summer cruises from The Bahamas on Adventure are available here.

Royal Caribbean will continue to evaluate and update its measures as circumstances evolve and in compliance with various government and health authorities. With cruises sailing to and from different destinations that have different sets of laws and guidelines, protocols will vary accordingly.

Royal Caribbean International’s Adventure of the Seas set sail from Nassau, The Bahamas on Saturday, June 12, marking the cruise line’s highly anticipated return to the Caribbean. Adventure will sail a summer full of 7-night cruises from Nassau to Perfect Day at CocoCay, Royal Caribbean’s top-rated private island destination, Grand Bahama, The Bahamas and Cozumel, Mexico.
