Goldring Travel Knows Luxury...And Not From Reading About It.

I always look to see what is new in luxury travel.  And, as part of the synergy I see and experience between yachting and the luxury cruise industry, I regularly attend the Monaco Yacht Show.

When you think of taking a luxury cruise or land vacation, know that I am not reading about what luxury is from a computer monitor or a cruise line's marketing materials.  I experience it and compare it.

You may enjoy this just released video of the 2012 Monaco Yacht Show:



So when, for example, Seabourn asserts it has a yacht-like experience know that I actually spend time on true yachts and can honestly make the comparison and let you know that it is, in real terms, true in many aspects.  For example, on September 19, 2012 I attending a private party for but 150 people on the 400 foot Motor Yacht Alexander and then on September 21, 2012 I boarded the 433 foot Seabourn Pride with but 200 people.

And if a cruise line or hotel claims "Six Star Luxury" I know if it is true...and that permits you to know, with confidence, that you will not be disappointed.  That means, for example, that glitz and glamour are not what I look for when making recommendations to you, but rather the things that truly create a luxury experience. 

When I first stayed at the Ca'Sagredo Hotel in Venice, Italy, it was hardly known.  But with its grand rooms, quietly but elegantly showing their age...in a good way, with its location right on the Grand Canal and with picture book views and warm, informal, but exemplary service I knew it was true luxury.  And many clients of mine have now stayed there; all with rave reviews and wonderful experiences...and the hotel has since won many awards.

So whether you are looking for a yacht charter, luxury cruise, or an extraordinary land experience know that Goldring Travel can provide you with the first hand experience and extraordinary service you desire and deserve.
