Carnival to Build New Cruise Port Destination in the Bahamas
Carnival Corporation will develop a new cruise port destination for Carnival Cruise Line passengers on Grand Bahama Island in the Bahamas.
The company has signed the agreement with the government of the Bahamas to move ahead with two major port developments. The other project on the Bahamian island of Little San Salvador, home to Holland America Line’s Half Moon Cay port, will receive a new addition, including a pier.
The new Grand Bahama destination will be located on the south side of the island and will offer guests a uniquely Bahamian destination with a spectacular beachfront and exciting features.
The deal was finalized with papers being signed by representatives from both Carnival Corporation and the local government. The pre-construction phase of these projects to begin early next year, will provide jobs and a major boost to the recovery and rebuilding effort. Once environmental and other permitting processes are completed, construction for both projects are projected to start by mid-2020.
REAL-ID Compliant Identification Cards
The United States Department of Homeland Security will officially begin enforcing the REAL ID Act of 2005 at airports for domestic flights starting October 1, 2020. Americans will have to present REAL-ID compliant identification to go through security. Other forms of Real-ID include US passports and US military. Americans are not prepared, according to the U.S. Travel Association, the non-profit that promotes travel to and within the United States. All 50 states are part of the Real ID program and will being issuing compliant driver’s licenses this year. U.S. Travel is urging people not to wait to get their Real ID-compliant driver’ license so that state licensing agencies won’t get overwhelmed by requests for new driver’s licenses next summer as the deadline approaches.

AAA Recommends Travelers Get International Driving Permit
A recent survey taken by AAA revealed that millions of Americans are making international travel plans for the near future, and one-quarter of Americans plan to take an international vacation over the next 18 months. Road trips are increasingly appealing to U.S. travelers while overseas. AAA is recommending that travelers consider obtaining an international driving permit before their next big getaway.
Valid in over 150 countries and printed in 10 languages, an international driving permit (IDP) is an invaluable form of identification should travelers need to communicate with foreign authorities — even if they are not planning on driving. An IDP is a legal document that translates U.S. driver’s license information into 10 foreign languages. Many countries do not recognize U.S. driver’s licenses without an accompanying IDP, and it is illegal to drive without a valid license and insurance in most places.
An international driving vacation comes with additional planning considerations and paperwork for which travelers need to be prepared. Travelers can obtain an IDP at any AAA branch. All that is required is to bring a valid U.S. driver’s license, $20, and two passport-size photos that are 2 inches x 2 inches with a white background.

Travel Advisors Should Be Alert to Uninsured Motorists
Roughly 9% of U.S. households do not own a car. That equates to almost 11 million car-free households. Thus, when renting a car as part of a vacation (or business trip), the renting party is exposed to considerable financial risk if the driver injures another person with the rented car, unless the renter has purchased the correct insurance covering the rental.
Some travel insurance companies also do not sell single-use personal liability policies that would protect you against personal injury/death claims arising from an accident with the rental car. As is typical of insurance agreements, the language covering personal liability is technical and legalistic.
Your travel advisor should be sure to have fully explored with the client the insurance implications of any plan to rent a car on a trip you are selling. If the client has her own automobile policy that provides liability protection when renting a car, this is great. If not, you should at a minimum explain in writing the importance of obtaining such insurance prior to arriving at the rental car location.

“Your Passport to Adventure”
“Where do I begin? This cruise was my first cruise. Does the wordrelaxing mean anything? It certainly does for me. The trip was refreshing, calming, and most of all just plain fun. Imagine been catered 24/7 with nearlyeverything being done for you, you just simple have to enjoy the moments.Our cabin was perfect with a balcony giving us a great view of the sea. Let me say, the morning breakfasts were to “die” for and dinners were spectacular.The events on the ship were numerous, there was entertainment so no boredom set in, and if anyone was bored, it is because you chose to be bored! to anextreme, so if you got bored on the cruise, it’s because you just wantedto be bored. I can not say anything negative about cruising on MSC’s Seaside. Looking forward to cruising on other cruise lines now! Thanks Nomadic Star Travel – you provided excellent service!”F. Moore (Alexandria, VA)First Cruise - Impressive on MSC
“You did it again! The Disney cruise was wonderful. My entire family had an amazing time. The adjoining staterooms and verandahs gave us plenty of room for the grandchildren to run and play and made babysitting so convenient. If this trip wasn’t as good as St. Lucia it was very close. Thank you for your expertise and attention to detail. Hawaii here we come!”Dr. S. Carraway (Winterville, NC)
W. Carlton (Durham, NC)
“The cruise was more than I expected, although I had issues with my knees. Services from your agency was good, although I had a glitch with receiving my documents (Oceania’s problem). The experience was great. Long range goal is to do this again. Thank you for working with us.”
Brenda and Jim,I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the marvelous service you provided to me and my group for my retirement cruise. Working with a group of 35 was no easy task but you went above and beyond expectations to insure that everyone’s needs were met. You gave new meaning to the term full service travel agency. I will cherish the many memories of our group as I move into retirement. Thanks again for you attention to details and for the way you pampered us. Please know that Nomadic Star Travel is now the official travel agency for Union Baptist Church.I am looking forward to planning more cruises and travel opportunities in the very near future.Wishing you all the best,Kenneth Hammond, Senior Pastor (Durham, NC)
“The Mediterrean Cruise to Monaco, France, Italy and Spain was a dream of a lifetime. Doing a cruise like this one was on my bucket list. The seven days on the Riveria were beautiful even though the weather was hot!!!!!! I’m used to hot weather, but the weather In those countries seemed a wee bit hotter than in Norh Carolina. The excursions and the visits in the cities were exciting and remarkable; however, the Riveria was something to behold. The hospitality and service were excellent and we enjoyed “our butler”, Leslie. Again, thanks for the opportunity to sail with you and Jim and we look forward to doing it again.”E. Edwards (Durham, NC)
Livingstone College, Salisbury, NC is in the infant stages of its international study abroad global initiative. This program includes sending Livingstone College students to other parts of the world and having students from institutions abroad come to Livingstone. To date there have been two students who travelled to Peru, South America, six students to Invertis University, Bareilly, India, and six students from Invertis University to Livingstone College from August- December 2016 and three Livingstone students for summer 2016 study in China.
Livingstone College used Nomadic Star Travel as the travel agent of record for Livingstone College student travel. When there are students and faculty travelling to distant parts of the world many things can happen to interrupt travel plans. For example, two students travelling to China arrived in Chicago only to discover their American Airlines flight to Beijing had been cancelled. Within minutes after being notified by my students, the Nomadic Star representative had me on a three-way call with the agent at the gate assisting my students. I was kept on the telephone until the students were re-routed via Japan to Shanghai, China.
Other instances of changes of departure and return flight times and dates were performed well by Nomadic Star Travel. Through this agent, Livingstone College was able to secure all of the necessary insurance coverages for international travel. Livingstone College is very pleased with the performance of Nomadic Star Travel, LLC.

“Dear Brenda,A note to thank you so much for your extraordinary work in arranging our family trip to South Africa!! It was a beautiful, fun, fantastic adventure and we will remember it forever! That you took such great care, with grace and ease, in working out all the logistics for our group of ten is truly appreciated.Oceania is a wonderful company and does many things absolutely top notch on their beautiful ships. We especially enjoyed the terrific service, yummy cuisine, interesting excursions, the guest speakers and music groups and the very nice rooms with balconies that were awesome for viewing whales and sea lions! We had a delightful experience that included many individual, thoughtful surprises – including balloons in our room, singing and a special cake for Mom’s birthday celebrated on the ship. The holidays were also celebrated beautifully and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.South Africa is an awesome part of the world – not to be missed. The beautiful people, breathtaking and diverse environments, spectacular animals in the wild and in the sea…so much to enjoy and experience deeply. We were welcomed everywhere and treated kindly in every port. The days at sea on the Indian and Atlantic Oceans were beautiful and peaceful with an abundance of sights to observe and enjoy.We had SO much fun!!!Again, many thanks for your skill and efforts in making this wonderful trip possible of our family! Hope you like the pics…Nomadic Star Travel rocks!!With gratitude and appreciation,Dee and Daureen”Dee (Oregon) & Daureen (Chicago)

Nomadic Star Travel, YOU ROCK!”I. & O. Little (Baltimore, MD)
I am writing to thank you for our marvelous experience in the Bahamas on a Royal Caribbean cruise. Nomadic Star Travels provides the extra level of customer service that travelers need. From proactively sending me passport applications to checking on my family once we returned, Brenda Fairfax goes the extra mile. Mrs. Fairfax is courteous and prompt which adds value to time-starved mothers like myself who do not want to be involved in non-value added activities related to excessive follow-up. My sons are still talking about the cruise three months later. I would strongly recommend using Nomadic Star Travel to meet all of your travel needs.
Dr. M. Patterson (Greenville, NC)
“Many thanks to Mrs Fairfax for making my summer vacation worry-free and very affordable. I recently had to travel to Providence, RI and Baltimore, MD. I had limited time and funds for the trip. I attempted to make arrangements but had trouble coordinating flight schedules to be compatible with my need to be at several places at specific times. Arriving in Providence in time for my meeting without having to spend extra time there gave me the extra time I needed for Baltimore. I tried to do this myself without much success and my wife suggested Mrs. Fairfax who had successfully arranged other travel for her. Once I contacted Mrs Fairfax everything was handled more efficiently and inexpensively than what I was able to do on my on. The next time I travel I now have to make only one call!!Mr. E. German (Riverside, CA)
“Thanks Nomadic Star Travel for excellent service. Our graduation cruise in June 2014 was very nice. We enjoyed every thing and thanks for the t-shirts.”B. Matthews (Ellenwood, GA)
