    Twin Centre Holidays

    Twin-Centre holidays have always been fairly popular but it seems to be the holiday type of choice even more now. Instead of heading to one place for two or three weeks, why not come up with an itinerary that takes in the many sides of a country. You don’t have to settle for just one type of experience you can roll them all into one trip. History one day, breath-taking scenery the next a day or two lazing by the pool thrown in for good measure. My perfect bucket list would be combing LA and Las Vegas. Mainly because I think for me a 4 nights in Vegas would be a maximum amount of nights but to travel all the way there for such a short time is a waste. So adding on a another few nights LA would bulk up my trip, I get to tick off another bucket list destination and of I was really feeling greedy I could add on another 7 nights in somewhere like Hawaii from LA. Has anyone got a multi-centre trip coming up or have you found a flaw in booking multi-centres?

  21. With every new detail we hear about Carnival Horizon the Barrhead Travel team get more and more excited and the newest information certainly didn’t disappoint. Carnival Cruise Line’s entertainment team has partnered together with creative directors all the way from Broadway, Los Angeles and London’s West End to bring three new amazing shows. Three new shows – Soulbound, Celestial Strings and Vintage Pop – will make their big debut in April 2018 when the ship launches. The already fantastic line up will be completed when a fourth show, Amor Cubano: A Caribbean Dance Romance, joins from Carnival Vista The Playlist Productions shows on Carnival Horizon include: · Soulbound: Hosted by Carnival Horizon’s very own “soul catcher,” this fun, high-energy show offers a gothic-inspired journey through New Orleans with stops at recognizable Crescent City landmarks like a haunted paddlewheel ship, an apothecary shop and cemetery highlighted by levitating chairs and other spookily stunning illusions. As spirits are playfully captured and brought back to life through dazzling special effects, cast members belt out R&B favorites like Superstitious, Soul Man and Born Under a Bad Sign. · Celestial Strings: Billed as a “breathtaking performance beyond your wildest dreams,” Celestial Strings merges the beauty of classical music with modern pop beats that takes place in an elegant and enchanted garden that seamlessly transforms from season to season, stimulating the senses with unbelievable visual imagery, 3D cast interactions and aroma-infused sets to bring the garden to life. The first Playlist Productions show to feature a live string trio, Celestial Strings is truly a multi-sensory symphony for the soul. · Vintage Pop: Taking viewers back to the Great Gatsby and Cotton Club era with contemporary songs like All About that Bass, That’s What I Like and Work transformed into classic jazz interpretations, Vintage Pop features a toe-tapping six-piece live band performing in a modern-day speakeasy. Highlighted by a show-stopping burlesque number that leaves audiences breathless, Vintage Pop ends with a rollicking after party in the atrium where guests can dance and interact with the flapper- and zoot suit-outfitted cast members. · Amor Cubano: A Caribbean Dance Romance: This exciting get-on-your-feet show blends classic Latin songs with today’s hits and features an authentic reproduction of Carnival Horizon’s sizzling Havana Bar. The show is highlighted by a seven-piece Cuban-inspired band that performs songs by Gloria Estefan, Celia Cruz and others amid a tropical, multi-hued backdrop of Cuba and Miami, the latter of which will be the ship’s eventual year-round homeport.
