The State Department has raised its global health advisory to Level 4: Do Not Travel.

The State Department has raised its global health advisory to Level 4: Do Not Travel.

Last week, the department issued a Level 3 advisory that U.S. citizens reconsider international travel. It now advises that U.S. citizens should not travel abroad, and that any U.S. citizens who reside in the U.S. return home as quickly as possible unless they are prepared to remain abroad indefinitely.

Largay Travel advises our clients and anyone else to comply with State Department’s directive. We are hard at work making arrangements for any remaining clients who are abroad to return home quickly and safely. 

If you are abroad, we advise you to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program so the State Department can contact you with advice and instructions. 

Any clients planning to travel in the immediate future should contact their advisors regarding rearranging those plans. Many destinations have already shut their borders for various time periods, but if you have not contacted your advisor about a trip scheduled for the next 30 days, you should do so now.

3 Reasons Cruises are a Great Option for Your Honeymoon

3 Reasons Cruises are a Great Option for Your Honeymoon
Deciding where to go for your honeymoon is one of the challenging aspects of planning a wedding. For most couples, it needs to be interesting, but have very little in terms of distractions. A cruise is one of the best honeymoon options you can choose for the following reasons.

Opportunities for Adventure
A cruise can allow you to see the world from the comfort of your cabin or when relaxing by the pool. You can cover a lot of ground without the logistical challenges that come with a land-based trip. You can visit several islands on the same day and get to enjoy the sunrise and sunset in between trips.

All-Inclusive Trip
Another factor that makes cruises suitable for a honeymoon trip is the fact that it is all-inclusive. Cruise packages ensure you have access to meals and entertainment when you need them. There is no need to spend time booking reservations or wondering where you’ll get dinner in a foreign country, it’s all included in the package.

The honeymoon package often includes entertainment that has many options that couples can enjoy together. Some cruises have cooking and dance classes, live shows, as well as movies shown on big screen TVs.

Perks for Newlyweds
As newlyweds, you are entitled to a number of privileges that single people and married couples are not. In many cruises, they can arrange to have flowers, chocolate, and wine for you at certain points during the trip. You may need to check with your travel agent or cruise to ensure you get these perks when you embark.

Honeymoon cruises are ideal for newlyweds for they are designed to make them feel special. There are themed nights and all the extra perks such as a Jacuzzi, a room with a balcony, chocolate, champagne, and many other perks.
