A recent survey by CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) determined that only 19% of cruise passengers thought travel agents provided the lowest prices for their cruise. One can understand those results with so many travel agents now adding service fees and handling charges to retail cruise line prices.
At Pavlus Travel we take advantage of every cruise deal, 2 for 1 offers, shipboard credits, free gratuities, free airfares and any other benefit that we can find for our clients. We do not and never have charged a service fee to any clients cruise price. Our mission is to provide a high level of personal service with the lowest prices possible. I know I speak for so many of our clients, we all look for service and the lowest prices possible.
Cruises are a bargain if you know where to shop, Pavlus Travel. Never any fee or charge for booking a cruise.

We’ve had many questions from clients as to carry on weight and size of carry on limits for various world wide airlines. At the outset understand airlines change their policies at will. We’ve found a source for general limits of carry on luggage for North and South America, European, Asia, Pacific, Africa and Middle East Airlines. However you should ALWAYS check with the airline/s you will be traveling with for the exact limits. I guess that’s a general way of saying we’re not responsible for the charts you can review.

Words from Craig Pavlus. Well its no secret that Pavlus Travel truly enjoys booking clients with Tauck Tours. For over 11 years Pavlus Travel has been the World’s largest single office seller of Tauck products. It’s all about attention to detail and extensive training of every member of our staff. Our training includes sending our staff on Tauck Tours and Tauck River Cruises.
I’ve been fortunate to be a founding member of the Tauck Advisory Board which meets with Senior Tauck Executives at least twice a year. Simply said we’re in the know about present and future Tauck plans to continue to expand the positive guest experience.
Tauck is introducing two new river cruise boats in 2016. The ms Joy and ms Grace interestingly were named by the employees of Tauck. River cruises are offered on the Danube, Rhine, Rhone, Seine and other popular river cruises. We’re taking advance reservations for 2016, just call 800.528.9300. Thanks to our Tauck clients who refer so many new clients to Pavlus Travel.

Craig Pavlus has learned that Viking River Cruises will be announcing river cruises on the Mississippi River commencing in the latter months of 2017. New Orleans will be the home port for Viking’s six Mississippi river cruises. Two ships will be built in 2017 and then two ships each for the following two years.
Itineraries for Viking’s Mississippi River Cruises will include New Orleans, Memphis, St. Louis, St Paul, St. James, East Baton Rouge and West Feliciana parishes. It’s been said that America runs on the Mississippi River. It is expected that a Viking River Cruise boat will have a capacity of some 300 guests.
Somewhere in heaven Mark Twain must be smiling.
We’ll let everyone know when reservations will be available for booking. Be assured that Pavlus Travel will be a leader in the sales of this new upcoming Viking Cruises expansion.
