NATIONAL PARK CLOSURES Not Disappointing the Cruise Vacationers
There are a lot of disappointed tourists due to the closure of the U.S. National Parks. Thanks to the U.S. government shutdown, travelers from all over the world have had to re-route their vacations or cancel completely.
Cruise lines are doing everything possible to ensure their guests are impacted as little as possible from “Shutdown 2013.” CruiseExperts.com is a cruise agency located in Visalia, CA and can offer you some even better options to get your vacation back on track.
“Because of the government shutdown, we have had to cancel a small number of shore excursions that visit national parks. In these instances, we have provided guests with alternative shore excursion options,” AnneMarie Mathews at Norwegian Cruise Lines said.
During the fall, Acadia National Park in New England off the coast of Maine is popular because of the brilliant fall foliage. The media has reported that “cruise ship companies planning to visit might change plans.” It just isn’t true. Bar Harbor is still open for business and no cruise lines have changed their itineraries. One of the best ways to see the fall foliage is from the balcony of a cruise ship.
“The scenic wonders of Down East Maine cannot be closed off by failed leadership in Washington,” Gov. Paul LePage of Maine said.
