SD Cruising and more...

Pacific Dream (Pullmantur) is departing Santo Domingo for an 8 Day/7 Night cruise of eastern Caribbean this fall and early winter. The cruiseship will make stops in Barbados, Martinica, Guadaloupe, St. Maarten, Tortola and Santo Domingo. A promotional price of US$287.28 plus taxes and charges for Saturday departures in October (3, 10, 17, 24, 31) is being marketed to local passengers originating in Santo Domingo. Other departures are in November (7, 14, 21, 28), December (5, 12, 19, 26), January 2010 (2, 9, 16, 23, 30), February (6, 13, 20, 27) and on 6 March. This is a tour with a Latin feel to it throughout. Alcoholic beverages are included in the prices. Pacific Dream, Pullmantur Cruises' new 46,811-ton ship with capacity for 1,875 passengers, went into service in 2009. In Santo Domingo, contact http://us.mc837.mail.yahoo.com/mc/compose?to=prietotours@prietotours.com or call 809 685-0102, Ext. 279

Also, a reader informed me that he has also photographed a model (Marcus) that was featured on Tropical Desires. His work is great and I hope you support him. His prints are truly worthy to be posters or wall art. http://www.doulassimonson.com/

The Simonson model in this posting who is known as "Marcus" is the boy in the video posted on the blog on February 6, 2009 titled "Beach Boy". If you love this guy like I do, go to Simonson's site, use the search engine and look for everything under model name "Marcus" You'll love what you see, both photos AND original artwork. His other Brazilian models are amazing as well.

I contacted Prieto Tours for more information regarding the Pacific Dream cruise. While the base rate is approximately $287 per person double occupancy, taxes and other charges raise the total to approximately $600. There is a single supplement charge of approximately $300, so, for someone who does not want to share a room, the total is approximately $900. I do not believe these prices are anything especially special.

I can see that being true. The Dominican Republic is known for excessive taxes and fees in the travel industry. I'm curious to know what the final rate would be if a dominican friend inquired for you. Sometimes you have to play THAT game.
