Are you considering doing something a little different for this year’s family vacation? Perhaps you simply want to get away from it all for a while and relax. Either way, a Noflycruise with Howard Travel could be the ideal getaway for you. Whether you plan on bringing along the whole family or taking some “you time,” there are a host of advantages to booking a cruise for your next vacation.
Below, the team from Howard Travel discusses some of these benefits in more detail and highlights a few of our most popular No Fly or limited flight cruises.
Why Take a Cruise Instead of Other Travel Alternatives?
One of the biggest benefits of taking a cruise from Canada over some of the other travel alternatives, like driving or flying, is that it’s incredibly convenient. There aren’t many other ways you can visit multiple countries and travel destinations while only having to unpack your bags once. Cruise ships also offer a lot of activities, making them great for more active travelers or those with children.
Additionally, traveling on cruise ships can be much safer and offer added oversight when it comes to accommodations, as well as activities on and off the ship. For example, any of the amenities (rock walls, swimming pools, waterslides, etc.) are closely monitored and should there be an accident, each ship has an infirmary and resident doctor on board.
Howard Travel’s “No-Fly” Florida & Bahama Cruise
Want to have some fun in the sun without the hassle of going to the airport? With the “No Fly” Florida & Bahamas Cruise from Howard Travel, we make it easy to relax. Board the beautiful Norwegian Bliss cruise ship and travel from New York to Florida and the Bahamas on this seven-day cruise. Destination highlights include the world-famous Kennedy Space Center, Great Stirrup Cay, Nassau, and a host of private beaches in the Bahamas, just to name a few.
11-Day Southern Caribbean Cruise
Although travelers on this cruise will have to hop on a plane one way, this trip is worth it once you find out everything you’ll be seeing along the way. Howard Travel’s 11-Day Southern Caribbean Cruise includes stops in the Grand Cayman Islands, Aruba, St. Lucia, Bonaire, and more. You’ll also have a few days at sea to enjoy the many amenities available on the Norwegian Dawn cruise ship.

Are you thinking of getting away for a while to thaw out a bit this winter? Well, the team from Howard Travel knows how chilly and uninviting those Canadian winters can be, which is why they’re pleased to offer their all-inclusive vacation packages to sunnier locales, like the Dominican Republic. This year, travelers can join them on a journey to one of the area’s most pristine resorts in Puerta Plata, from Feb. 14-21.
Here’s a bit more information about what you can expect on this once-in-a-lifetime trip to one of the world’s leading vacation destinations.
Why Choose Puerto Plata for Your All-Inclusive Vacation Package
Are you wondering what’s so great about Puerto Plata compared to other vacation destinations? Well, firstly, it’s situated along one of the Dominican Republic’s most breathtaking beaches, Playa Dorada. Literally meaning “Golden Beach,” this locale offers visitors an exquisite vista of golden sands and clear blue water they’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
Another great highlight of Playa Dorada is that it’s home to some of the world’s most unique flora and fauna, with a range of active coral reefs that make it ideal for snorkeling and scuba diving. Additionally, this beach is private, meaning only those with exclusive access can enjoy its pleasures.
Staying at the Sunscape Puerto Plata Resort
There are a host of benefits to staying in the Sunscape Puerto Plata Resort. In addition to easy access to the private beach, visitors are also located just a stone’s throw away from the area’s major airport, making traveling a breeze. The resort also faces the Atlantic Ocean, providing guests an amazing view from nearly every one of its 585 rooms. For those who want to take advantage of its many amenities, the resort boasts a range of bars and restaurants, as well as an 18-hole golf course. The best part is that everything is included, so you can take all your meals a la carte while you watch the sun set.
Traveling with Howard Travel
When you invest in one of Howard Travel’s all-inclusive vacation packages, their team handles everything. You’ll receive first-class transportation to and from Montreal’s International Airport and roundtrip, non-stop airfare directly to Puerto Plata. Travelers will also be able to take advantage of private transfers to and from the airport when traveling from point A to point B.

Are you tired of battling the snow and ice every morning simply to get the car started or go fetch the paper? Making it through those Canadian winters each year can be tough, especially the older you get. Why not give yourself a break from the deep freeze by traveling to the Hawaiian Islands this December.
Howard Travel, one of Canada’s best cruise and travel agencies, is offering a once-in-a-lifetime tour around Honolulu and the Hawaiian Islands from Dec. 3-19, 2019. Let’s look at some of this cruise’s leading highlights.
Before embarking upon your cruise from Canada to Hawaii with Howard Travel, you’ll first hop on a shuttle and travel to the Montreal Airport. From there, it’s only a short flight to Los Angeles, where you’ll have the evening to see the sights and the sounds of the city. Be sure to get some rest as the following day will be a busy one.
After a good night’s sleep, visitors will take a tour of the city before heading to its famous port to set sail on the breathtaking and fully equipped Star Princess cruise ship. As one of the world’s leading grand-class cruise ships, it boasts such amenities as a first-class restaurant, shops, swimming pools and Jacuzzis, and much more. This makes it easy to relax while at sea awaiting your first stop in Hilo, Hawaii.
During this time, you’ll visit some of the world’s most beautiful tropical islands, including Honolulu, Kauai, and Maui. Stop at some of the most pristine beaches and island getaways, all the while enjoying some of the world’s most unique food and cultural offerings.
After leaving lovely Hawaii, you’ll again spend the next several days at sea until reaching another highlight of the tour: Ensenada, Mexico. As part of Mexico’s Baja California province, it boasts pristine beaches and if you’re lucky you might even catch a glimpse of the migrating gray whales that visit on occasion. After a day in Ensenada, you’ll return to LAX where you’ll fly home to Canada with a happy heart and a head full of memories.

The team from Howard Travel understands that many want to get their last little bit of travel time in before the big freeze of the Canadian winter, which is why we’re proud to offer several Ontario vacation packages for the fall. You’ll be able to get a taste of the Canadian countryside on our exclusive tours of St. Jacob’s and the Muskokas.
Below you’ll find some trip highlights that are sure to get you excited about your fall vacation.
Located along the Conestoga River, St. Jacob’s is a quaint little town with a lot of personality. Set in the Waterloo region of Southern Ontario, the town boasts a lot to do, such as a local farmer’s market to visit, plenty of restaurants and historic landmarks, and an outlet mall. On your trip you’ll be staying just a stone’s throw outside of town at the Homewood Suites by Hilton St. Jacob’s.
On day two of your trip, you’ll embark upon a guided tour of the area’s tranquil country roads before hitting the town for a few hours of shopping and exploring. The small shopping district is well-known throughout Ontario for producing a variety of homemade arts and crafts, as well as clothing, home decor, jewelry, accessories, toys, gifts, food, and more. On day three, say goodbye to St. Jacob’s with a visit to their famous farmer’s market, boasting some of the area’s freshest food. Pack a few items to bring home with you and make a once-in-a-lifetime meal.
On this four-day trip to the Muskokas, visitors will be able to experience the beauty of the seasons as the rolling hills are set on fire by the changing leaves. Day 1 will find you in the heart of cottage country, traveling to the Pinestone Resort, where amenities include a spa, golf course, restaurant, and lounge. Nestled in the Haliburton Highlands, the area boasts an enormous amount of lakes and wildlife, which you’ll explore on your second day on a tour of the Wolf Centre at Haliburton Forest and Wildlife Reserve.
One Day 3 of your Ontario fall vacation in the Muskokas, you’ll board the Lady Muskokas for a nearly three-hour boat tour of some of Ontario’s most breathtaking sights and landmarks. In addition to all the wildlife you’ll see along the way, you’ll also pass by famous Millionaires Row. The rest of the afternoon is free so you can relax and prepare for the trip home the following day.

Howard Travel has more than 60 years' experience putting together amazing all-inclusive vacations for Brockville residents and one of our best trips yet is right around the corner! We're proud to announce that we're now taking reservations for a week-long trip to the amazing and beautiful Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.
The trip will be from February 14-21, 2020 - so now is the time to make your reservations and prepare for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Experience Puerto Plata With Howard Travel
Puerto Plata is a beautiful stretch on the northern coast of the Dominican Republic, loved by tourists around the world for its beaches and other natural attractions. We'll be putting you up in the Sunscape Puerto Plata, a stunning 585-room resort that's only about 20 minutes from the airport. You'll have views of the Atlantic Ocean and plenty to do without even leaving the resort! It features nine restaurants, seven bars, and an 18-hole golf course.
You could spend your week at the resort and never get bored.
But then, you'd probably be missing out, because the Dominican Republic is gorgeous, filled with culture and history. There are far too many attractions to list, but some of the most popular destinations include:
- Fortaleza San Felipe: This historic Spanish fort was constructed on the main bay in the 1560s, very early in the Colonial period. It served in numerous battles over the centuries and is now a military museum full of fascinating artifacts. Today, it's the only piece of original 16th Century construction left in the area.
- Cristo Redentor: You don't need to travel to Rio to see Christ The Redeemer. This replica was constructed on top of Mount Isabel de Torres and is every bit as spectacular as the original. Plus, the cable car up the mountain offers truly stunning views of the surrounding lands.
- Charcos de Damajagua: Also known as the 27 Waterfalls, this is one of the most spectacular natural water features you're likely to find anywhere in the world. It's a bit of an adventure -and a hike- to get there, but it's almost certainly the most awesome thing you'll do during your time in Puerto Plata!
That's not to speak of the food, the shopping, the people, the music, and all the other amazing local culture. Your trip to Puerto Plata will be one you'll remember for the rest of your life.

We put in the hard work, so you don't have to. Howard Travel arranges everything on your behalf including airfare, ground transportation, and even paying your local tourist duties.

Here are just a few of the August vacation packages Howard Travel has lined up that would be perfect for a quick family vacation or a private little getaway for two.

However, you could also spend time with classic carnival games and rides at their full amusement park or chill out in their "Amazoo" water park with a full selection of thrilling water attractions. There's truly something at the Granby Zoo for everyone - and a full weekend is only barely enough time to take it all in.
