Course Description

The Classes

We hope to offer several history classes during 2013 in conjunction with our Caribbean cruise, all of them subject to approval by the host colleges. A brief description of the history classes that might be offered is listed below, but for more information you should contact Brad Reynolds at bradley.reynolds@live.com.

The classes, if approved by one of the host colleges we are approaching, will be offered during the sprin and/or summer of 2013. Several orientation meetings will be held during the spring, summer and fall of 2012 to review class requirements, in the hope the classes will get approved, and to answer all questions about the classes and the cruise, but feel free to contact Brad Reynolds at anytime at bradley.reynolds@live.com if you have questions ahead of the meetings or if you can't make them. There will also be optional meetings aboard the ship while we are at sea to answer your questions about the ports and/or the class requirements and to take exams if you like. And there will be some meetings upon our return to answer all questions for those people who cruised for class credits, if they are available, and so students can take any remaining exams. Work for the classes, if they are offered, will include an optional research paper on the history of the ports you will visit, or a photo journal of the historical sites in each port you visit, or you can opt to do the work assigned to the other non-cruising students in the class you are taking. Whatever you decide, your cruise assignment will count as 40 percent of your class grade. The remaining 60 percent will likely consist of two exams, each worth 30 percent of your class grade. Again, contact Brad Reynolds at bradley.reynolds@live.com for more information.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions about the cruise and the classes offered in conjunction with the cruise. If your question is not answered below, please do not hesitate to contact Brad Reynolds by one of the following methods: by phone at (661) 362-3388 or via email at breynolds1@ymail.com.

1. Are your prices usually discounted and cheaper than retail?

Yes! Because we book in volume and have a good record with many different travel brokers, we get some great discounts and upgrades which we pass on to you. We also shop for reasonably priced packages offered by reputable firms that we know will give you what you pay for and more. In regards to Norwegian Cruise Line specifically, we have done business with them for years and it is the second larges cruise line in the world so you know you are going with a reputable company.

2. Is the trip price guaranteed?

In most cases the answer is yes, once you have paid in full. However, it is possible that a company we are working with might raise their prices due to fuel costs, inflation, or other unforeseen developments.

3. What type of financial security do you offer?

We deal only with travel operators who are fully bonded and who guarantee your deposits and payments in writing. We also work with a fully certified and bonded travel agency. No one has ever lost a penny with one of our groups in over thirty years of travel service.

4. Can I get trip insurance?

Yes, and we recommend it. You can purchase travel insurance from us which will cover lost luggage, last minute cancellation, trip interruption costs, medical costs, and just about any other costs related to the trip. We work with several companies, including Travelers Insurance, or you can buy travel insurance from the cruise line. Ask for details.

5. How does one sign up for a travel package?

When you are ready to sign up you should email Brad Reynolds at breynolds1@ymail.com or call (661) 362-3388 to have an application for travel mailed to you. You can pay your deposit by check, money order, or by credit card right over the phone, or a meeting can be arranged if you want to pay in cash.

6. What costs will I have beyond the package price? How much money should I bring on the trip?

That depends on your package and your tastes. If you are cruising with us, you will likely have very few additional expenses since your cruise package includes almost everything and you pay for it prior to your departure. You would need money only for tips (typically $12 per day), drinks, the casino aboard the ship, and your shore excursions, although the latter could cost you nothing if you just want to window shop and/or go to the beach! If you are doing a non-cruise package, you need to consider the cost of your food and entertainment when doing your expense calculations, assuming your air and hotel costs are included in your package price. Attending one of the group orientation meetings will help clarify all this and will get your specific questions about costs answered, but a good rule of thumb is to figure on about $50-$100 per day in expenses.

7. Can I use my credit card to pay for the trip? Can I use it on the trip?

Most of the companies we deal with will accept any credit card. Ask for details. As for using your credit card on your trip, you can do so without worry throughout the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America and Europe, and aboard most cruise ships.

8. Are there cancellation costs if I find I cannot go on my trip?

Yes. If you cancel within fifteen days of your initial deposit you will get a full refund. Cancellations made after fifteen days and up to 90 days prior to departure will be assessed a $200 per person cancellation fee. No refund will be made for cancellations after 90 days prior to departure. Please read the Release of Liability form that will be given to you when you sign up. It will explain the cancellation penalties in more detail.

9. Can I bring someone with me on the trip who does not attend our college?

Yes! Many members of our groups are not students at the college. Everyone of any age is always welcome to travel with us.

10. Can I get college credit for going on the trip? p>You can earn transferable college credits in conjunction with one of our trips. The credits are usually available in history, but sometimes they are also available for Spanish, music, and political science. Usually students earn the credit by doing a research paper on the history or politics of one or more of the places they will visit on their trip, or they do a photo journal of the historical and/or political places they see during their trip. Either way, you should ask Dr. Reynolds for more details if you want college credit for your trip or check his web site at www.bradreynolds1.pageout.net.

11. Can a student from another college earn college credit for going on the trip?

Yes. The student needs to simply follow the policy outlined above and then transfer the units to his or her own college. p>12. How can I learn about what to see on my trip and about sightseeing expenses?

We will tell you about all the wonderful things to see and do on your trip at our orientation meetings. We will also give you information about the costs of sightseeing and how to keep your costs down. Meanwhile, you should visit a book store for a travel book on our destination or check the web.

13. What experience have you had in organizing tours?

We have served thousands of people since our first tour was offered in 1980. Also, most of the tour operators with whom we deal have been in business for decades or are among the largest operators in their field. In addition, Dr. Reynolds has traveled extensively across the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, South America, Europe, Asia, and Hawaii and makes sure that any packages offered are safe and fun, and are to reasonably priced destinations. >14. Where do I go if I have additional travel questions?

You should call Dr. Reynolds at (661) 362-3388 or at (818) 677-3565. If no one is in you can leave your name and phone number on his voicemail. You will get a call back as soon as possible. Dr. Reynolds will be able to answer all your questions or at least tell you where to find the answers. You should also check his website at http://www.bradreynolds1.pageout.net.

15. Are the people in your groups required to stay together during the trip?

No. You are always free to go off and do what you like, when you like, and with whom you like. We call ourselves a group in order to get group travel discounts and because we hold optional group meetings before we travel and usually during the trip, but you are never under any obligation to attend them. We do find, however, that members of our groups usually hit it off and often end up spending time together during the trip!

16. Will I feel out of place because of my age or marital status?

No. People in our groups are all ages, as are people on cruise ships and in hotels. The odds are more than likely that you will find plenty of people in your age group either among the people in our group or at your destination. As for your marital status, we have singles, married folks and everything in between, so you won't feel out of place whatever your marital status. And remember, you are never under any obligation to stay with the group.

17. Are children allowed on the groups?

Yes they are, and often at discounted prices. Ask for details. (If you are traveling with us to escape from your little ones, we understand. Just let us know and we'll make sure your hotel room or ship cabin is away from the children.)

18. On a cruise, what is the difference between an "inside" and an "outside" cabin?

Outside cabins have windows while inside cabins do not. Some people feel less crowded in an outside cabin and say that it gives them a feeling of more space, although most cabins are the same size regardless of their location. Outside cabins also let in natural light and you can look outside to see ships passing or to gauge the weather. However, some people prefer inside cabins because they stay darker so people can usually sleep better and longer in them. In addition, some people think inside cabins are quieter and ride smoother than outside cabins. The bottom line is that it's a matter of personal preference. You can book either an inside or an outside cabin in one of our cruise groups, but we can tell you that inside cabins are always less expensive, and since one doesn't spend very much time in the cabin, most people in our groups book inside cabins.

19. Can I upgrade my room or cabin or my flight to the destination?

Yes, most likely. While we may have to charge you a bit more, it will probably still be a discounted price over what you would pay retail. But keep in mind that our ships usually sell out, so if you are considering an upgrade in a cruise group you should do it sooner than later!

20. What type of entertainment is there on a cruise ship? What does one do at night? How much does it cost?

Almost all the entertainment aboard your cruise ship is included in your price, except the use of the casino. Most ships offer a piano bar and orchestra dancing prior to dinner, and then a Las Vegas type review after dinner that usually includes a singer, a magician, a comedian, and dancers. Many ships also present a musical show for you. Later in the evening you can try your luck at the casino, dance to an orchestra, or spend all night in the disco, all at no additional charge to your cruise fare. Then it's on to the midnight buffet, or if you ate late and aren't hungry again as yet, you can enjoy the 1:30 a.m. buffet that many ships now offer, or you can take advantage of the 24 room service, all included in your price!

21. Will I get bored on a cruise? What will I do during the day when we're at sea?

You can do as much or as little as you like, but you will not get bored! From the time you arise until the time you retire for the evening, you're cruise ship will have some event that you can attend. It may be games at the pool, a wine tasting, bingo, gambling in the casino, cards, shuffle board, a movie in your room or at the ship's theatre (if there is one), table tennis, or basketball, but whatever you look for something will always be happening! Or, if you prefer, you can just find a quiet place to sleep on deck, read a book, or simply watch the ocean roll by. Whatever, you won't get bored or ever have the opportunity to say that you had nothing to do!

22. Will I feel out of it if I go on the trip alone and everyone else goes with a friend?

Absolutely not. Many people join our groups without knowing anyone, but by the end of their trip (indeed before the trip!) they have many new friends! That's one of the advantages of going in a group! You'll get to meet all the other people in your group at the orientation meetings and you'll probably see each other regularly during the trip. You'll also have the chance, of course, to meet many other people where you're going. So don't be afraid to venture out alone! You won't be alone for long!

23. Can you arrange a roommate for me?

Yes, and we do it all the time. If you want us to find you a roommate, we'll do everything we can to match you with someone of like tastes. We'll introduce you to each other at the orientation meetings or, if for any reason you would rather room with someone else, you just let us know and we'll find you a different roommate. But remember, you will only share a room with the person and you will not be under any obligation to stay with that person during the trip.

24. Can you make arrangements for special occasions?

Yes. If you are having a birthday, anniversary or whatever, please let us know and we'll have something special planned for you or your friend.

25. Am I likely to get seasick on a cruise?

Probably not. Most cruise ships are like floating hotels and are so big that you will hardly feel any motion if at all. Generally speaking, if you do not get motion sick in a car, you will not get seasick on a cruise ship. However, if you are prone to motion sickness, there are many wonderful medications you can take these days to prevent seasickness. Also, keep in mind that most of the time you will travel between ports at night while you are asleep and so you will not feel the rock of the ship if any even occurs.

26. Will I need a passport if I join a group going outside of the United States?

Yes. Passports are required and they are a wonderful form of identification if you want to cash a check or whatever, so please get one. Passports these days cost about $130, they are valid for ten years, and you can obtain one in only a couple of weeks from your post office. We will give you all the details at the orientation meetings or you can call a post office. IF YOU A FOREIGN NATIONAL you are welcome to join our group but you will need a valid passport from your country and a multi entry visa to the United States. You will need to also see if you will need a visa for any of the countries we will visit.

27. Are there different classes of service on a cruise ship?

No. Everyone enjoys one class of service - first class. No matter where the location of your cabin or what you paid for it, everyone dines in the same ship's restaurant, uses the same public rooms, sees the same shows, and so on.

28. What are the drinking and gambling ages in the Caribbean, Mexico, Asia, and Europe?

You can drink and gamble in the Caribbean, Mexico, Asia, and Europe at eighteen, although we strongly recommend you do both in moderation if at all!

29. Will people speak English at the places I visit?

Yes, since most of the places we visit are tourist areas.

30. How do I get to my plane or ship to start or end my vacation?

You are respponsible for getting to and from the departure and end point of your trip, but we can certainly help you with arrangements if you like. If getting to your departure point involves air, there are numerous websites, like Kayak.com, that can give you price comparisons on air fares. We will also keep you appraised of inexpensive air when we hear about it.

31. What should I pack?

This question really depends on you, but we feel you should pack as light as possible. For one thing, the plane will only permit you to have two regular sized bags or you'll have to pay for extra luggage. Also, if you're cruising with us, the closet space on most cruise ships is small to say the least. Just remember that you're probably going somewhere warm where you won't need a lot of clothing and where the atmosphere is generally laid back and casual. Think mix and match, but do bring a few special things to wear for those special nights on the town or for the captains party if your going aboard ship with us.

32. Can I extend my stay beyond the travel package dates?

Most likely yes, if you give us sufficient advanced notice prior to your making final payment. Most airlines will let us extend your air ticket and usually at a low charge. We will also gladly help you with arranging hotel stays, rental cars, or anything else you'll need if you stay longer at your destination.

33. By what date do I need to sign up?

Most of our packages have limited space, especially our cruise packages, and are sold on a first come basis. Most of the time when we run out of space we cannot get any more. Our recommendation, therefore, is that you make a deposit on the trip you want to guarantee a spot for you.

34. How much is the deposit and can I hold a spot even if I do not have enough for a full deposit?

The deposit is normally $200 per person but we will usually hold a spot for as little as $100 providing you tell us at the time you deposit when you can give us the balance of your payments.

35. What kind of payments do I have to make?

Generally speaking, we try and divide your payments into four installments, but we will gladly establish for you just about any payment plan you like that meets the final payment date for your trip.

36. What type of food can I expect on a cruise ship?

The best! For breakfast you can have just about anything you can imagine including a few things you probably can't like kippers! For lunch you can have a buffet on deck or select from several entrees in the dining room. And then comes dinner! A feast will great you each night! Your five course dinner will include several entrees to choose from and many fabulous desserts! And if you can't decide on which dessert you want, you can have them all! Then later, at midnight, you can see what creations the chef has for you at the midnight buffet, and if you're still hungry you can order from the 24 hour room service. We may not be able to guarantee you romance on your cruise, but we will guarantee that you won't go hungry!

37. How much are drinks aboard a cruise ship?

Drinks on a ship cost about what you would expect to pay at a bar in Los Angeles. If you want to keep alcohol costs down, you can take your own booze aboard ship or you can purchase alcohol in the ship's store duty free. However, you are not permitted to take open bottles on to the decks or in the public rooms.

38. What type of weather can I expect?

Winter and spring months in the Caribbean, Mexico, Central America, and the Middle East and Africa are often dry and warm (generally in the mid eighties) but the nights but the nights can get cool. The summer is usually hot and humid but you'll likely find your cruise ship well air conditioned, so the heat should not cause you discomfort if you are traveling with us in the summer.

39. Can I get a special diet aboard a cruise ship?

Most cruise ships today offer special diet menus such as low sodium. Let us know your special dietary needs if you are cruising with us and we'll take care of the rest.

40. Are handicapped people able to go on your trips?

Absolutely! Most cruise ships and hotels have rooms for handicapped persons these days, but check with us.

41. Can I arrange my own air?

Yes.

42. Why does a cruise seem to cost so much?

It's not really expensive, it just seems that way because it's all inclusive! Actually, you'll find cruising very reasonably priced if you realize that your cruise price includes transportation to all your different ports, your accommodations, and most of your food and your entertainment. Try pricing a similar package on your own and you'll see the terrific value of cruising!

43. Can I use my hairdryer and shaver on a cruise or on a trip to Latin America or the Caribbean?

Yes. All modern cruise ships and resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean have converted the U.S standard current.

44. What about tipping customs?

At the orientation meetings we will tell about tipping customs at the places you will visit or aboard your cruise ship. There are also websites you can check that will give you this information.

45. Can I find no smoking areas aboard a cruise ship or request a no smoking room at a hotel?

Yes. Cruise ships today have non smoking areas in their lounges and restaurant and most hotels now have non-smoking rooms. Just let us know your preferences and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

46. What do cruise cabins look like?

Most cruise cabins have about half the space of an average hotel room, so be prepare for a shock! But you'll soon find your cabin comfortable enough and that it includes a bed, dresser, bathroom, phone, radio, air conditioning and most of the other comforts you require. Just remember, you will likely spend very little time in your cabin!

47. Can I use U.S. money on my trip if I am going to the Caribbean?

In most places yes, or the ship or hotel at which you are staying will convert your money for you. We will give you exchange rates at the orientation meeting just prior to your departure.

48. What advantages are there in going in your group over booking a package myself?

One advantage is price. Because we book as a group, we usually get a better price than an individual could receive. Also, by joining our group you'll have the opportunity to attend several trip orientation meetings to have all your questions answered. But most importantly, as a member of our group you'll get to meet dozens of new people and you'll have a travel escort with you to answer your questions or to take care of any little problems that arise.

49. How do I find out about customs regulations and the like for coming back to the U.S.?

We will provide all that information at our orientation meetings or you can Google it.

50. On a cruise, why are there different meal sittings?

Most ships cannot accommodate enough passengers for a single sitting. And besides, some people prefer eating early while other prefer a later dinner, so most ships have two dinner sittings. However, many new ships have open seating for all meals and that seems to be the trend of the industry.

51. Must I take a class to go on the trip?

It depends on the trip, but for the cruises we offer the answer is no.

52. Can I go diving?

Not only can you go diving, the ship has several dive options. Ask for details.

53. When I read about cabins being double, triple and quad, what does that mean?

On the cruise their are cabins that hold two people (doubles), three people (triples), and four people (quads). When we advertise a price like $599 quad what we mean is that each person in a room that takes four would pay $599, plus an applicable taxes.

54. Will I have fun?

You can bet on it!
