“It’s Really a Good Life.” This Retired Couple Has Been on at Least 100 Cruises. Here’s How They Budget for Their Adventures

Avoya Travel
 

Judy and James Franklin have discovered how to happily navigate the ebb and flow of life — through 56 years of marriage, in sickness and in health, this retired couple has sailed on approximately 100 cruises.

The Franklins’ first cruise, in 1972, was a splurge for James, a private first class in the Army at the time, and Judy, then a nursing student. “The installment plan was very helpful when we were starting out, but at this time in our lives, we pay the cruise off when we book it,” says James, who goes by Jim.

The couple, who are based in Seminole, Fl., spends anywhere between $25,000 to $35,000 for about 6 to 10 cruises per year, depending on the length of the cruise, which can range from a week to up to about five months. Their destinations have included the Caribbean, South Pacific, South America, the Baltics, Greenland, Scotland, Ireland, and Russia. When possible, they’re accompanied by some of their three children, eight grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.

Passengers stranded after WOW air abruptly shuts down


Low-budget carrier WOW air seemed too good to be true with its “cheap flights” for international destinations. But on Thursday morning, the Icelandic airline abruptly shut down, leaving its customers stranded.

While passengers were waiting for their flights and continuing to book future trips, the airline sent out a travel alert on Wednesday that “all flights have been postponed” due to the finalizing of equity raise with investors. Shortly after, however, the little hope that passengers across two continents had left dissolved with the company’s final announcement that it has “ceased operations, telling customers that “all flights have been canceled.”

As of May 1, if the stroller doesn’t fit, you must git. Or, you can rent a stroller from Disneyland that conforms with the stricter guidelines.

Strollers must be no wider than 31 inches (36 inches currently) and no longer than 52 inches (unchanged), park officials said. While many stroller models meet those specifications, some of the larger double-wides probably do not.

A 15-year-old girl is removed from a Spirit Airlines flight due to overbooking, while her unbeknownst mother and brother sit in the back of the plane — and don’t realize until halfway through the flight.

While it may sound like the scene out of a movie like Flightplan or Home Alone 2, a Michigan woman claims it happened to her.

Stacy Giordano says she was flying with her daughter and son from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. to Detroit, Mich., in April of 2018, when the family had to switch planes in Tampa, ABC 15 reports.
