Follow these steps to make sure that your bag is located
An unfortunate reality of checking luggage on your flight is that it may not always show up at your destination airport when you do. This may not mean that it’s lost altogether, perhaps just delayed, but in either case it can be a major inconvenience. We’ve outlined the steps you should be sure to take as soon as you discover that your luggage is missing. Below, we’ve also included some helpful links and contact information for specific airlines, so you can easily know your rights and get in touch in the unfortunate case that your checked luggage is lost or delayed.
As most frequent travelers know, jetting around the globe isn’t always as glamorous as armchair travelers may think it is. Flight delays, long travel times and lost hotel reservations can quickly zap much of the joy of visiting other parts of the world. While not all traveling pain points can be eliminated, anticipating potential issues and being prepared to take action can help to make your trip go much more smoothly.
If you’re contemplating a getaway before all of the activity of the holiday season begins, you can’t go wrong choosing a cruise. Opting for this ultimate care-free vacation takes virtually all of the uncertainty out of sightseeing, dining and entertainment. One price covers not only your transportation and accommodations but also your meals and entertainment. You can make your trip even less stressful by shipping your luggage ahead to the cruise before your arrival.
Autumn is a great season for cruising. The summer crowds have left most of the popular tourist destinations and cruise ships are starting their bi-annual migration between their summer waters (such as Alaska and the Mediterranean) and their winters homes (such as the Caribbean, Hawaii and South America.) This is also the season that cruise lines begin their round-the-world journeys. Even if you don’t have an extra 60, 90 or 180 days to spend on a cruise ship, you can get a taste of a “Grand Voyage” by booking a segment of a world cruise and seeing ports like Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney while enjoying the amenities and leisurely pace of a luxury cruise liner.

Autumn is a great time to visit Europe. The crowds of summer have returned home. The air is cool and crisp, and restaurants, museums, and attractions are back open again after the summer hiatus. The European countryside is especially lovely this time of year as residents harvest grapes, apples, lavender, and other crops, and the waning sunlight plays on churches, castles, and other structures.
