19 May 2010 - New Nanny Service in Fiji at the Outrigger

Posted by: Alan

OUTRIGGER ON THE LAGOON Fiji says it’s already expanding its new Meimei Nanny Service just six weeks since it launched.

The program started with six nannies who were very quickly fully booked on a daily basis “well into the future” meaning a further six will be on deck by 20 May, moving to a total of 18 on 15 Jun in time for the school holidays.

The Meimei Service offers affordable child minding along with cultural experiences such as Fijian art and craft and fishing, with one-on-one care for kids aged 6 months to 2 years, and two children per nanny for kids three years and over, costing from as little as A$4 per hour.

19 May 2010 - Single Travellers have a new cruise option

Posted by: Alan

The Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Epic’s arrival in just over a month is generating a lot of interest.

One aspect of the Epic that's very exciting for single travellers is that it will have 128 single cabins.

The 128 inside, single supplement free Studio cabins are designed specifically for singles and though smaller than the traditional cabin at just 100-square-feet, they offer a full-size bed, storage space, a flat-screen TV and separate areas for the bathroom, sink and shower.

There is also a Studio Lounge which is an exclusive, shared social space open only to Studio cabin occupants. The Lounge features a bar, two large TV screens, a dedicated concierge for booking dinner reservations and shore excursions and comfortable seating for hanging out.

They will also have an Ice Bar on board - reportedly one of only 14 in the world!

14 May 2010 - USA Visa Waiver Program

Posted by: Alan

Travellers are suggested to apply for visa waiver programs before a US$15 charge is introduced, US authorities confirmed today.

The decision to charge visitors using the Visa Waiver Program was passed in Congress in March and will soon force foreign nationals to pay the fee when they apply online via the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation (ESTA).

"The law says the US must implement the fee in six months which means they have four months left.
It will probably come in after the summer peak," explained Visit USA Association Chair Kate Burgess.

"It will be $15 as $10 will go towards the Travel Promotion Fund and the extra $5 will be needed to cover credit card costs and adminstration fees".

Approved applications for the Visa Waiver Program are currently free and allow entry to the US for two years.
