Gratuities on a cruise (often automatically added) are a bit of a bugbear for passengers these days. So here’s the deal for 20 popular cruises. How much should you tip (or not)?
wine & wineries
Wine and beer are free on Viking Cruises at lunch and dinner. Nice! So should you get the upgraded drinks package for cocktails and premium wine?
The Red Tree House is consistently rated the best B&B in Mexico City. We know why! Its tasteful rooms, yummy hot breakfast, free “wine hour” and friendly staff are hard to beat.
Our educational and fun Wine Flies Tour from Cape Town took us to five Stellenbosch wineries, including Annandale for bold, luscious, old-world reds.
Sip, swirl, savor. Sonoma’s 400+ wineries pack an intoxicating punch. Exploring the Sonoma wine country by bike, we taste bold fruity Zinfadels and more.
British Columbia wines? Yes! More than 200 wineries are strung along the central Okanagan Valley, and they produce some fine wines.
How to go from fusty to fabulous! We love the new Four Seasons Hotel Mexico City renovation, especially the cool lobby (with its bold orange-and-red mural) and bright chic guestrooms.
