Favorite Internet Travel Sites


Recommended Posts

Sail7Seas did such a good job of posing new questions yesterday, I got inspired! So here's one:

What are your favorite internet travel sites (plus link, if you can.) Other than HollandAmerica.com and CruiseCritic.com of course!

Here are mine:

www.mimimus.biz -Tiny travel packets of almost everything. You'll go nuts!

www.eBags.com

www.longitudebooks.com - All travel books and maps for every destination

www.flightview.com - Flight tracking

www.seatguru.com - Don't book airline seats without it!

www.sleepinginairports.com - Just for fun

And, of course, Magellans.com and TravelSmith.com

This is a GREAT thread. I've bookmarked it. :)

 

Here's more of my favorites...

 

http://cruiseclues.com/ Anything about cruising, menus, daily programs, and more here.

 

 

http://www.lifeiscruising.com/ Lots of port information and pictures. General cruise information...mostly Carnival and Princess, but still lots of good "general" information. If you click on this site, and it comes up blank, try it again.

Great list and an excellent idea.

FWIW, the first site on your list is actually: http://www.minimus.biz/

:D I like the bathroomdiaries.com, too! A good book is, "There is No Toilet Paper On the Road Less Traveled." Doesn't sugar-coat anything!

 

I also forgot one of my favorite sites:

www.kroooz-cam.com (Note the three "o"s in "kroooz")

Sorry...."cams" has an "s". See corrected link below!

http://www.lonelyplanet.com another great travel site

and gruesome as it may seem, http://www.stormcaribe.com It's a site about Caribbean hurricane info and really came in handy when trying to find out how all the islands and people faired last year

whew, just finished copying and pasting to WORD all these great websites so I can peruse at my convenience thanks for all your wonderful sites.

 

on another thread the following site was given to look for books for your cruise to read at great discounted prices:

http://www.bookcloseouts.com

I have used it to order several books for our church library and to see how many books I can use for the summer.

Some of my favorites have already been mentioned, but I can add:

 

For tracking airline flights (so you can know where a flight is at any given time)

Flight Explorer

Flight Tracker

 

To find out about just about any airline in the world -

Directory of Airline Web Sites

 

Disability Travel and Recreation Resources

 

And since our other favorite vacation besides cruising is Disney World –

Deb Wills All Ears

Disney Information Station WDW info

Thanks, jfishe, for providing this link. I've been all around the web trying to find a good site for hurricane info. Mainly because I wanted to find out what islands have suffered severe damage in the past couple years as I plan our next cruise to the Western caribbean. Sidenote: although stormcaribe.com does re-direct you, it is actually www.stormcarib.com (no E at the end). Great link!

 

And one of my favorites: www.wikipedia.com . This is actually an online encyclopedia, but if you type anything in the search box, i.e., "Tortola", it will bring up a page filled with facts on Tortola, BVI, links to things such as major towns, maps, etc. I've learned quite a bit about the islands I want to visit this way. And its helpful for anything you want to learn about, not just travel. I got some great hurricane info from here recently when I wanted to find out just how badly hit the Cayman islands and Cozumel were. You can really get caught up in this site as you travel from link to link to link....

 

Great thread - this is the kind of stuff that keeps me addicted to CC!:cool:
