Leading LGBT Travel Agency Brings the Beach and Rainforest A Little Closer for a Limited Number of Lucky Guests
HOUSTON, Tex., January 18, 2011 – Concierge Travel, Texas’ largest gay-owned and operated travel agency and tour operator, today announced a special limited rate of $895* on its first all-gay luxury sailing ship cruise to Costa Rica and Panama. Those looking to beat the winter blues can join Concierge Travel for its full ship charter cruise on Star Clippers’ elegant Star Flyer March 6-13, 2011.
This limited offer applies to inside cabins in Categories 5 and 6. Rates are per person and based on double occupancy. Rates include all of Star
Clipper’s deluxe accommodations and services in addition to Concierge Travel’s customized service, entertainment and activities.
“We’re excited to offer travelers an unheard of low rate on an all-gay luxury sailing ship cruise, and to give them the chance to experience the
wonders of Central America the Concierge Travel way,” said Kim Gustavsson, vice president of sales and marketing at Concierge Travel. “For gay and lesbian travelers looking to escape the winter chill, there’s no better or more affordable way to enjoy the warmth and beauty of Costa Rica than through this special offer.”
Star Clipper’s 170-passenger Star Flyer is the world’s tallest sailing ship, with a mast that stands 226 feet tall. Much smaller than the massive,
floating hotel mega-ships that dominate the cruise industry, Star Flyer’s compact size enables it to visit ports often untouched by larger cruise
ships, while offering passengers the activities, amenities and atmosphere of a private yacht. Star Flyer offers spacious accommodations and expansive decks with two swimming pools.
Concierge Travel’s newest full-ship charter cruise sails from Puerto Caldera, Costa Rica on March 6, 2011. After a relaxing day at sea, the ship
docks in Isla de Coiba, Panama, where guests can explore virgin rainforests or dive among sea turtles, dolphins and manta rays. The cruise continues on to six more ports on Costa Rica’s sunny Pacific coast, with highlights ranging from archaeological ruins on Isla del Cano to powder white sand beaches and an astonishing array of wildlife in Quepos and nearby Manuel Antonio National Park.
Reservations for the Costa Rica and Panama cruise as well as any other Concierge Travel vacations can be made by contacting Concierge Travel
