Our Travels

To date, we have visited every continent, except Antarctica. The recent trip to South Africa, January 6-20, 2024 while escorting 25 clients was amazing!

I must admit, this was one of the best groups I can remember accompanying in years. There were no hiccups. Clients treated everyone as family.

South Africa – January 2024

Visiting Cape Town and Johannesburg filled our days with memories to last a lifetime. We visited Robben Island, Cape Point, Pretoria, Lesedi Cultural Village, Soweto, and Cradle of Mankind. Sipping South Africa’s finest wines at two wineland tours, and having a delicious five course dinner with wine pairings, satisfied everyone’s thirst.

The local handmade crafts and street stands support local businesses or families who rely on tourism for their income. This is an opportunity to interact with locals and find out more about the goods they sell. We stopped on two occasions for clients to purchase extra luggage for their return trip, so shopping is a must!

Witnessing history is a definitely an eye-opener. The two drumming lessons were fun. The group savored specialty dishes throughout Africa.

All were alert and eager on the morning and evening game drives. The delight in everyone’s eyes seeing FOUR of the big five in Pilanesberg National Park captured our attention. Lodging accommodations were top-notch.

Client Satisfaction

Clients were thrilled with their tour of South Africa. Some express interest to return again! As a result of the follow-up briefing after we returned, several clients shared their experiences with family and friends. Their positive reviews prompted us to book a second trip scheduled for January 21-February 2, 2025. Nomadic Star Travel, LLC limits its groups to 25.

Black Rhino Game Lodge Safari is the perfect escape. It combines a true bush experience during the day with luxury accommodation at night. The meals were delicious. The local guides throughout the trip, drivers and rangers were excellent.

Best Caribbean Islands for Families

Visiting a resort jam-packed with activities certainly take the strain off parents and let everyone enjoy the trip. If you are looking for fun places for the family, you may want to visit:

  • Barbados is the ideal Caribbean island for families. There is  everything from larger, more affordable resorts to smaller boutique offerings. Barbados is the best island for action.
  • St. Lucia tops the islands when it comes to serving up romance. Coconut Bay is the biggest crowd pleaser on the island. The all-inclusive caters to couples, families and even wedding parties.

Interested in Adults-only or Almost Adult-only Cruise Lines?

  • Virgin Voyages, one of few explicitly adults-only cruise line. Guest must be 19 or older. The ships are unique as they lack traditional dining rooms and buffets. Entertainment offerings are “atypical and engaging” and include pool parties, private karaoke studios, and drag queen cabaret. 
  • Viking features the world’s largest fleet of river cruise ships. There is the very popular 930-passenger ocean ships. Do not forget the two true expedition vessels that explore the polar regions and the Great Lakes. This cruise line does not accept children under the age of 18 on any of their ships. There are no casinos, umbrella drinks and inside staterooms. Line is popular with mature cruisers.
  • Silversea Cruises does not explicitly exclude children. It is rare to find a few, if any, on board. Silversea offers a more refined, somewhat formal, service and dining experience. Guest enjoys suite accommodations, butler service, complimentary alcoholic beverages and gourmet dining.
  • Windstar Cruises is not strictly adults-only and technically welcoming all travelers ages nine and above.
  • Seabourn cruises to all seven continents, and does not carry more than 600 passengers. Most staterooms have private verandas. The dining venues is included, as are premium spirits, fine wines and caviar. 
  • Regent Seven Seas, another small-ship luxury line geared toward  grown-ups. It is not explicitly adults-only as there are some child-friendly activities. Well=heeled couples, solo travelers, and groups of friends with a taste for the finer things in life will especially enjoy a Regent cruise.
  • Crystal made its grand re-debut in the summer of 2023 after a years-long hiatus. The line has long been a favorite among luxury-loving adult travelers. Both Crystal Symphony and Crystal have undergone multimillion-dollar refurbishments and are sure to impress. Highlights include all-suite staterooms (all of which include butler service), gourmet specialty dining (including the first and only Nobu at sea), and adult-oriented entertainment (which runs the gamut from stand-up comedy to Broadway-caliber productions).  
  • Azamara offers a fleet of four small-to-medium-sized ships that can accommodate up to 702 guests. The ambiance is serene and sophisticated. Cruisers can enjoy local-led shore excursions.  
  • Uniworld River cruise line is a favorite amongst mature couples and groups for its wide variety of itineraries throughout Europe, Africa, Asia, and South America. Once on board, guests enjoy suite accommodations complete with butler service. Meals are prepared made with fresh, locally sourced ingredients from specific ports of call. 

Transportation Security Administration (TSA)

Starting 2025 the Transportation Security Administration will require CLEAR travelers to produce a REAL ID or passport at airport check-in. The CLEAR program is based on two premises. It takes you to the very front of the check-in line. Its biometric check-in process means you do not have to pull out your ID. That second advantage seems about to disappear if it has not already.

July the TSA announced it is already screening a limited number of randomly selected CLEAR travelers after “security incidents.” There reportedly have been three cases in which travelers managed to get through the CLEAR line without having valid ID, which prompted a congressional investigation.

For an annual fee of $189 (plus $60 for up to three family members), CLEAR offers its own lanes at TSA checkpoints in more than 50 airports.  

Did you know?

Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL)

  • Cancelled Europe sailings in October and November? The Norwegian Epic and Norwegian Getaway will start sailing the Caribbean season earlier for these ships. This is due to a growing guest demand for Caribbean sailings this fall and winter.
  • The Epic will now sail Caribbean cruises from Port Canaveral from October 30 through March 29. The Getaway will homeport in New Orleans from October 20 through April 6.
  • The Getaway’s Mediterranean and Greek isles cruises from September 29 through and including November 27 are cancelled. 
  • Sailings on the Epic are cancelled from October 17 through and including November 10. 
  • Norwegian Cruise Line will no longer call in Venice in 2024. The ban on large cruise ships in the Venetian Lagoon means ships must anchor outside the lagoon. Passengers would use tenders to access the Port of Venice. NCL is substituting Ravenna, Italy; Rijeka and Zadar, Croatia; or Koper, Slovenia, based on port availability. Venice scheduled for 2025 is canceled. It is replaced with a day at sea until a new port is confirmed, NCL said. Guests and travel advisors will be notified of the modified itinerary, the line added.
