The Morning Shave

Virgin Hotels New Orleans Is a Chic Tribute to the Crescent City. – Virgin Hotels is quietly adding some flashy new hotels in trendy cities. They now have locations in Chicago, Nashville, Vegas, and New Orleans… all cities that I love to visit. I just wish that I knew of a way to capitalize on their loyalty program for some free stays.

Heading to Mexico? These Are the COVID Restrictions in Place. – We’re traveling to Cabo this summer, so the timing of this article is perfect for our family. My son and I went to Cabo in October and, honestly, I felt safer there than at home. Every worker wore masks diligently and they checked temps and used hand sanitizer every time we entered the resort, a restaurant, or a shop.

Cabo Glass Bottom Boat Tour
We have so many great Cabo memories, including this glass bottom boat tour.

Flight Attendants Reveal What You Should Wear If You’re Looking for a First-Class Upgrade. – This may have happened a generation ago but in today’s travel world, you’re not getting an upgrade to First Class unless you hold high levels of elite status. People need to stop writing these articles. If you want to fly First Class, redeem miles and wear what you want. That’s what I do. Learn how to earn miles and points to travel for less with my free email course.

Disney Cruise Line putting the ‘fun’ in funnel with its new Wish Tower Suite. – I haven’t been on a cruise in a long time, but this would be an epic room to stay in on a cruise. The room is amazing and the views can’t be beaten. Not the typical porthole windows most cruisers have to contend with.

10 private-island resorts you can book with points. – We’ve all been hoarding points over the last year while being stuck at home. We can all use a vacation right about now, but may not feel comfortable being around large crowds. Renting your own private island is an excellent way to use your points AND stay socially distant. Which one of these is your favorite? Since I have an Aruba trip coming up this summer, that might be an excellent opportunity for us to try one of these out.
