Okay, folks. I have a question. I'm going to be in Portland next Monday (the 22nd) through Thursday (25th). I'll be there for training, but I get in at noon Monday and I don't have to be anywhere until Tues. morning. I really want to get to Multnomah falls, but I won't have a rental car (cheap ass company), and all the tour busses I can find online don't travel on Mondays. Anyone have any suggestions? I know we have a few people from Portland on here...

TRAVEL ADVANCE (R)
Volume XVI, Number 97
Thursday, May 18, 2006

HOLIDAY TRAVEL TO RISE SLIGHTLY. The number of Americans driving and flying over the Memorial Day holiday weekend is expected to rise only slightly this year as consumers respond to the rising cost of airfares, hotel rooms and motor fuel, according to forecasts by AAA and the Travel Industry Association. AAA said 37.6 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more, or about 1% more than last year--based on a national telephone survey of 1,500 adults. More than 80% of those travelers will take road trips, while another 10% will fly. The remainder will be packed into trains and buses. The AAA/TIA forecasts will be released later this morning at a Washington news conference. According to TIA's Summer 2006 Forecast, Americans will take 325.6 million leisure person-trips during June, July and August. "I am concerned about a number of economic indicators with gasoline prices and the pocket-book impact they're having leading the way," said Dr. Suzanne Cook, TIA's senior vice president of research. Cook said that gasoline prices of $3 per gallon could be the "tipping point" for many Americans. (AP; Detroit News.com/Business; Page 1C, Miami Herald; Special to TA)

*Even $3-a-gallon gasoline won't throw a roadblock in the way of the family driving vacation this summer, the government's top energy forecasting agency said Wednesday. But an Internet survey found that high fuel prices were taking a toll on summer travel arrangements. The federal Energy Information Administration gave its summer driving update on the same day a new poll showed that pump prices were affecting plans of 72% of Americans taking a road trip this summer. The poll, by Internet map service MapQuest, said nearly 1 in 10 respondents planned to cancel trips because of expensive gasoline. The average price for regular unleaded gasoline jumped 3.8 cents last week to $2.95 a gallon, after declining the previous week for the first time in a month and a half. (Reuters; Los Angeles Times.com/Business)

*The cost of travel has been going up all year and that is making it difficult--but not impossible--to find summertime bargains. The U.S. travel industry is enjoying greater pricing power in large part because it has succeeded in minimizing the supply of airline seats, hotel rooms and rental cars at a time when demand for these services is rising. With Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer, just around the corner, the sweetest deals may already have been snapped up, travel experts said, though it is still possible to save a few bucks by planning ahead and remaining flexible when it comes to itinerary details. (AP; Las Vegas Review-Journal.com/Business; Boston Globe.com/Business)

PASSPORT RE-ENTRY RULE MAY BE DELAYED. The Senate voted Wednesday to delay for 17 months the requirement that Americans re-entering t he U.S. after cruises or short visits to Canada and Mexico show passports or other high-tech identification cards. The Senate would push back a Jan.1, 2008, deadline for the requirement that Americans show the documents. A driver's license usually satisfies customs and border inspectors now. The measure was adopted as an amendment to a broader immigration bill before the Senate. The new deadline for having to show a passport or ID card would move to June 1, 2009, if the bill becomes law. Canadians also will have to show a passport or high-tech ID to enter the U.S., even for short visits. Short-term Mexican visitors already must have tamperproof cards to enter the U.S. (AP; Atlanta Journal-Constitution.com)

SENATE BACKS FENCE, GUEST-WORKER CURBS. The Senate voted Wednesday to build 370 miles of triple-layered fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border and to block access to a new guest-worker program by lawbreaking illegal immigrants, even those guilty of misdemeanors or ignoring a deportation order. On a 83 to 16 vote, the Senate backed an amendment by Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., to fortify 70 miles of existing fences near San Diego and parts of Arizona and to build 300 miles of additional fencing through the Arizona desert. Senators approved another provision, 50 to 48, declaring that illegal immigrants seeking a guest-worker permit could not petition for legalization on their own, and instead must be sponsored by an employer. (Pages A1, Washington Post; 3A, Miami Herald; AP)

MISSING CRUISE PASSENGER REPORTEDLY DRINKING. A 21-year-old Ohio man reported missing from a Royal Caribbean cruise ship that had left Port Canaveral for the Bahamas went overboard after a long night of drinking with friends, the cruise line said Wednesday. The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search Wednesday afternoon for Daniel DiPiero of Canfield, Ohio. Friends last saw DiPiero aboard the Mariner of the Seas around midnight Sunday, crew officials said. He was reported missing the next morning. DePiero and his roommates concealed liquor in mouthwash bottles and brought rum in their luggage, which the cruise line prohibits, investigators said. (Page 3C, Miami Herald)

CONTINENTAL RAISES FARES. Continental Airlines yesterday said it has raised domestic fares by $2 each way to offset the rising cost of jet fuel. The carrier said the $2 increase covers flights within the U.S. as well as to and from Canada. The increase comes on top of a $2 increase on May 2. American Airlines, United Airlines and US Airways all said they haven't matched Continental's fare increase. (Page D6, Wall Street Journal)
ORLANDO AIRPORT TO RAISE PASSENGER HEAD TAX. Flying out of Orlando International Airport is likely to soon cost passengers an extra $1.50 as part of a plan to raise more money for improvements to baggage security systems and other building projects. The increase in the passenger facility charge from $3 to $4.50 will bring Orlando International in line with what other airports charge customers. OIA now ranks as the 12th busiest airport in the nation in terms of passenger traffic. The other top 11 airports charge passengers $4.50, the maximum allowed by the FAA. (Orlando Sentinel.com)

NEW SURVEY SHOWS FLORIDA IS NO. 1 U.S. VACATION DESTINATION. A new survey from MasterCard International shows Florida is "by far" the most likely destination for U.S. vacation travelers. The survey of 1,134 U.S. adults in April found beach or warm-weather activities were the top choice for vacations, appealing to 29% of those surveyed. Child-friendly destinations were second choice at 12%. Two-thirds of the survey sample said they dreamed of visiting a far-off destination such as Australia or New Zealand, but just 1% said they planned to go overseas in the next 12 months. Sixty-nine percent of those surveyed said they plan to visit Florida in that time frame. The survey was conducted by Ipsos Insight between April 21 and 25. (Orlando Sentinel.com/Business)

OPINION: PROTECT FLORIDA TOURISM, COASTLINES. In its lead editorial this morning, the Miami Herald says a bid to end a 25-year ban on drilling off U.S. coastlines poses a new threat to Florida's beaches, environment and tourism. A measure passed by a key U.S. House committee last week aims to open protected coastlines for drilling for natural gas as close as three miles to shore. "Such environmental degradation would chase away tourists, hurt our economy and spoil natural areas enjoyed by visitors and residents," said the paper. (Page 20A, Miami Herald)
CRUISE NEWS.

--The resumption of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Libya was welcomed by several cruise lines that have been hindered by visa problems for its American passengers. "The news that the U.S. is resuming full diplomatic relations with Libya is a very positive development for our planned cruises this summer," said Brad Ball, spokesman for Silversea Cruises. Several cruise lines returned to Libya last year but then stopped when the country declined to issue visas to Americans. (ModernAgent.com, 5/17)

--Celebrity Cruises and Royal Caribbean International Cruises will resume port calls to Cartagena, Colombia, starting in April 2007, according to a joint announcement by Colombia's President Alvaro Uribe Valez and Richard Fain, chairman and CEO of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. The company last called in Cartagena in 2002. In the past, security concerns kept many cruise lines from calling at Colombia. Celebrity Cruises will make 24 visits to Cartagena; Royal Caribbean will make eight at Cartagena over the 2007-08 season. (TravelAgent Central.com, 5/16; Special to TA)

--Cunard Line's new Queen Victoria, scheduled for delivery in late 2007, will operate a World Cruise in 2008, departing New York simultaneously with the Queen Elizabeth 2. The two liners will depart Jan. 13, 2008. The Queen Victoria will embark on a 105-day "Pathway to the Explorers" maiden world cruise and QE2's will start a 90-day "South America, Pacific and Far East Odyssey," It is the QE2's first foray into South America in more than a decade. Following a day of festivities in New York, both ships will depart for Fort Lauderdale, where similar celebrations are planned. From there, the two ships will part, each sailing different itineraries before reuniting in Sydney on Feb. 24, 2008. (ModernAgent.com, 5/16)

--Princess Cruises will offer a record 81 new shore excursions in Europe this season. The new Adventures Ashore range from cultural explorations to active adventures, such as dining with locals in Istanbul, exploring Soviet life in Estonia, cycling through Edinburgh, seeking to unlock the secrets of "The Da Vinci Code" or following the footsteps of Rembrandt. Princess will operate four ships in Europe this season, its largest ever Europe deployment. (ModernAgent.com, 5/16)

*Princess has added a new vacation planning tool called "My Portfolio" to its Website,
www.princess.com. The new service enables anyone organizing a cruise with friends or family to conduct an invitation-based dialog to help coordinate choices and aid in the decision-making process about the Princess sailing. The new My Portfolio tools can be found on each user's new personalized My Princess page, a new feature that also debuted this week. (Special to TA)

--Holland America Line will provide travelers with 22 Caribbean itineraries from which to choose next year. It will offer 125 departures on eight ships for the Caribbean in 2007, including sailings from New York City, 12 holiday voyages and four short Bahamian sailings. Almost half of the line's Caribbean cruises are longer than a week. (TravelAgent Central.com, 5/15)

--Silversea Cruises is rolling out new optional shore excursions that focus on the culture and culinary traditions of the Mediterranean and northern Europe. For example, guests can learn how to cook the Italian way at the Sorrento Cooking School within the Giardino delle Esperidi resort in Sant' Angelo. From Valencia, Spain, Silversea guests might choose an exclusive visit to a 17th-century royal palace, now the home of the Valencia Cooking School. (TravelAgent Central.com, 5/15)

--Regent Seven Seas Cruises will offer a 59-night, 15-country, 36-port "Circle South America' cruise aboard its Seven Seas Mariner, sailing round-trip from Fort Lauderdale on Jan. 9, 2007. The two-month voyage features six onboard overnights and seven exclusive complimentary shoreside events. The cruise will feature famed ocean explorer Jean-Michel; Cousteau, who will sail the Amazon along with associates from his Ocean Futures Society. (Special to TA)

<<<<<<< From Travel and Consumer Magazines >>>>>>>
"GIRLFRIEND GETAWAYS." Girlfriends, moms-and-daughters, and sisters are all zooming off on trips together, just for the fun of it, says Budget Travel magazine. To capitalize on the trend, the magazine produced a special bonus issue called "Girlfriend Getaways," offering ideas, destinations and savvy advice for girls who yearn for a getaway. The magazine also conducted what it called a "totally unscientific" online poll to find America's ideal female celebrity for a girlfriend getaway trip. The overwhelming winner was Oprah Winfrey, with 20% of the vote. Runners up included Jennifer Aniston (9.7%), Susan Sarandon of "Thelma and Louise" fame (6.8%) and Angelina Jolie (6.3%).

NEW RULES PROPOSED FOR CRUISE-SHIP BALCONIES. Cruise ships would have to
remove all combustible items from balconies or install fire sprinklers and smoke
detectors under proposed rules embraced Friday by members of the International
Maritime Organization. The proposed rules also would require ships now being
built to have partitions between balconies that firefighters can easily open.
The plans--which were given their initial approval by the IMO's Maritime Safety
Committee in London--came in the wake of the deadly fire aboard the Star
Princess near Jamaica. The March 23 blaze began on a pri vate balcony and quickly
spread, killing one passenger and injuring 13 others. The proposal is supported
by the International Council of Cruise Lines in Arlington, Va. (Page 3C, Miami
Herald, 5/20)

PASSENGERS PROTEST CUT PORTS OF CALL. Passengers on board a Celebrity
Cruises vessel say they are dissatisfied with compensation offered by the cruise
line when mechanical problems forced them to skip two port calls. The Summit, a
2,000-passenger Celebrity Cruises ship, left Los Angeles on May 7 for a 15-night
cruise to Alaska. During ship maintenance in San Francisco, mechanics found
metal shavings in the oil system that services the bearings involved with one of
the Summit's two Mermaid propulsion systems. A delegation of four passengers,
who said they represented several hundred customers on board, told the Ketchikan
Daily News they were not informed about the mechanical problem and were not
given the option to disembark at San F rancisco. When the problem forced the line
to skip port calls in Seattle and Sitka, Alaska, passengers were offered
$200-per-stateroom shipboard credit. Passengers
who spoke in Ketchikan described that as inadequate. Celebrity also said it
would cancel the Summit's next Alaska cruise so the ship could be repaired in
Victoria, British Columbia. (AP; Anchorage Daily News)

CASINO WORKER HELD IN HOLLOWAY CASE. Dutch police are holding a suspect
on suspicion of murder in the disappearance of Alabama teen Natalee Holloway.
Gerald Spong, the suspect's lawyer, said that his client, whose name w as not
disclosed, was suspected of "assisting in the murder, battery and kidnapping of
Natalee Holloway." Holloway was 18 when she went missing a year ago during a
high school graduation trip to the Dutch island of Aruba. Spong said the suspect
worked at the casino in the hotel where Holloway was staying. (Page 3A, USA
Today)

NWA SETS T ENTATIVE DEAL WITH RAMP WORKERS. Northwest Airlines and its
ramp workers reached a tentative agreement on a new labor contract that, if
approved by a majority of the 5,600 employees, would render moot the airline's
request that a bankruptcy-court judge throw out the group's current contract.
The International Association of Machinists union didn't disclose the terms of
the new deal. The union said the details and the voting schedule are being
prepared, along with a separate strike-authorization ballot in case the
employees reject the contract and the judge ultimately annuls the current
agreement. If the tentative agreement is ratified, the nation's fourth-largest
airline will be close to its goal of paring its annual labor costs by $1.4
billion. (Page A7, Wall Street Journal, 5/20)

TRAVEL'S HIGH-ENERGY HEIRESS IN HIGH DEMAND. As one of the few female
leaders in the mostly male-dominated travel and tourism industry, Carlson Cos. CEO Marilyn Carlson Nelson is in high demand, says USA Today in a cover story in
its "Money" section. Industry conferences want Nelson to speak. Politicians at
every level seek her campaign support. Diplomats and world leaders want her help
in solving economic development and human-rights problems. Her influence
reflects the sprawling reach of her privately held business empire, which she
inherited from her father and owns jointly with her sister. Carlson Cos. brands
include Radisson Hotels, casual dining chain TGI Fridays, Regent Seven Seas
Cruises and travel agency Carlson Wagonlit Travel. (Page 1B, USA Today)

SLUMPING CANADIAN TOURISM TURNS TO GAELIC ROOTS. In the past few years,
Canada has been trying to revive its ailing tourism industry. U.S. leisure
visitors to Canada dropped almost 5% to 12.5 million from 2004 to 2005 as
tourist grappled with issues such as the strengthening Canadian dollar. But an
island of 147,000 in t he Canadian province of Nova Scotia has found a formula to
woo tourists--playing up its Scottish heritage. On Cape Breton Island, about 500
locals actively speak Gaelic in their homes and in the pubs. It's perhaps the
best way to get a taste for Scotland short of crossing the Atlantic. (Page P3,
Wall Street Journal, 5/20)

BABY BOOMERS PUSH RV OWNERSHIP TO NEW RECORD. Baby Boomers have pushed
the number of recreational vehicle owners to record levels, including some who
hit the road full time while continuing to pursue their careers. Baby Boomers
have money, a sense of wonderlust and enough technology to run an office or stay
in touch with family while on the road, said Rachael Parsons, spokeswoman for
the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association. Nearly 8 million households owned
at least one RV in 2005, according to a study by the University of Michigan
Survey Research Center. That's a 58% increase from 1980. About 384,400 RVs wer e
sold in 2005, according to RVIA. The typical RV owner is 35 to 54 years old,
owns a house, has an annual income of $68,000 and travels an average of 4,500
miles a year, according to the study. (AP; Seattle Post-Intelligencer.com)

TAMER SPACESHIP RIDE DEBUTS AT EPCOT. Mission: Space "lite" made its
debut Friday at Walt Disney World in Orlando, complete with bold warnings urging
visitors to bypass the full-force version if they are concerned about certain
health conditions. The new version of the space simulator at Epcot eliminates
the centrifuge element of the attraction, lessening the G-forces on the body,
but still pitches riders forward and backward, shakes and combines audio and
video virtual-reality effects. Its opening comes less than six weeks after a
German tourists died after riding the attraction and less than a year after a
Pennsylvania boy died after riding it. (Orlando Sentinel.com/Business, 5/20)

ASTA MEMBERS APPROVE NEW GOVERNANCE PLAN. In a referendum completed last
week, members of the American Society of Travel Agents overwhelmingly approved a
new governance plan that will provide all domestic members with equal
representation and create a smaller, more agile bo ard while unifying ASTA's
leadership. The referendum passed by a vote of 704 to 112, with one abstention.
(ModernAgent.com, Special to TA)

"DA VINCI" AS A BRAND: FROM SOUP TO NUTS. For the more than 100 million
readers around the world who enjoyed "The Da Vinci Code," marketers are betting
they might like the "Da Vinci" video game, or the "Da Vinci Code"
paint-by-number, or "The Da Vinci Fitness Code." a diet book based on the
Fibonacci sequence. With the movie opening this past weekend, "The Da Vinci
Code" has already spawned a mini-industry unto itself that encompasses video
games, cookbooks, walking tours of the Louvre, even pornography. And no matter
what happens to the movie, the merchandise and travel tied to the brand will
stay strong, some marketing experts said. (Moviegoers gave their blessing to the
film over the weekend, spending an estimated $77 million to see the Tom Hanks
religious thriller.) (Page B1, New York T imes, 5/20)

<<<<<<< News and Trends from the Sunday Papers >>>>>>>

AMERICANS should brace for a summer of miserable air travel, The New
York Times advised Sunday. Planes are expected to be packed fuller than at
anytime since World War II, when the airlines helped transport troops. Fares are
rising, service frills are disappearing. Logjams at airport security checkpoints
loom as the federal government strains to keep screener jobs filled. And the
usual violent summer storms are expected to send the air traffic control system
into chaos at times, with flight delays cascading across the country. (Sect. 1,
Page 1, New York Times)

*Allowing frequent flyers to bypass much of the airport security hassle
in exchange for giving up some personal information in advance has yet to
happen, four years after the idea was first proposed. The concept, first called
"trusted traveler," was popula r with some airlines, frequent flyers and
lawmakers. But now , the Transportation Security Administration is suggesting
that the benefits will range from slim to none, except perhaps for the
likelihood that the ling waiting to reach the checkpoint will be shorter. (Sect.
1, Page 22, New York Times)

WITH THE U.S. image abroad in the tank, one group is trying to do
something about it. Keith Reinhard, chairman emeritus of DDB Worldwide, the big
ad agency, is seeking to mobilize U.S. businesses to improve America's standing.
Reinhard founded Business for Diplomatic Action, a New York-based nonprofit. BDA
has sponsored and distributed research about the problem, launched business and
educational initiatives, worked to increase foreign visitation to the U.S. and
created a "World Citizens Guide," now in editions for students and
businesspeople, aimed at making traveling Americans better ambassadors for the
U.S. BDA hopes to distribut e the guides through tour companies, airlines and
ultimately with every new passport issued by the U.S. State Department. (Los
Angeles Times.com /Travel)

WITH gas prices at nearly $3 a gallon and airfares going up, consumers
with the slightest interest in taking a cruise now have something to at least
cheer. In a rare move, Carnival Corp. said it was lowering fares by as much as
20% on Caribbean itineraries this summer, and they're not alone. Other cruise
lines have begun quietly reducing ticket prices in hopes of stimulating demand.
Cruise experts say the prices are the lowest they've seen in about three years.
(Page 1E, Miami Herald)

RESORTS and cruise lines have recently begun to realize that they have
to be a lot more sophisticated about how they reach out to teenagers (and thus
their parents) especially after years of misfires in which they treated all
children as equals. Now, rather suddenly, teenagers have become th e focus of a
barrage of targeted offerings, ranging from teenagers-only lounges on cruise
ships and resorts to special "acne attack" facials and stress-combating spa
treatments. The continuing upswing in family travel--36% of adults took at least
one vacation with children last year, compared with 26% in 2000, according to
Yesawich, Pepperdine, Brown & Russell--suggests that it is important to keep
teenagers, a notoriously opinionated bunch known for influencing (and at times
ruining) their family's travel plans, at least reasonable happy. (Sect. 5, Page
3, New York Times)

TIPPING is a traveler's last resort for getting and rewarding good
treatment. But now, suppliers are toying with that sacred cow by imposing
mandatory gratuities and other charges. The result? Confusion and conflicts on
the front lines. Hotels, cruise ships and restaurants have become the venue for
such disputes, but tensions are highest at curbside chec k-in, where passengers
are locked in a struggle with skycaps over tips. United, American and other
airlines say a $2-per-bag curbside fee instituted last year is in lieu of a
gratuity, although passengers can still tip for excellent service. Baggage
handlers, on the other hand, complain that they "don't see a dime" of this fee
and sometimes campaign for tips, even though they're not supposed to mention the
"T" word to customers. Meanwhile, some passengers--fearing their luggage will
end up in Siberia--say they feel pressured to tip anyway.

Well, with the money I'd save on that one-way trip, I could buy her a one-way ticket, which is all she'd really need. In the end, it would be just like buying a round-trip ticket for me.

Ah, but one way fares are usually triple the price of roundtrip; so you wouldn't be saving any money. Now, you could buy her a roundtrip and just throw away the return.

Never mind....YOU'RE NOT BRINGING THE BRIDE WIT'CHA!! There are plenty of homegrown gals that need loving'!!

Isn't there some kind of restriction against buying a roundtrip ticket and not using all of it? Or is it just that travel agents get mad?

(I would do it - I'm already on the government's "watch" lists, anyway, so it wouldn't really make me "suspicious" all of a sudden.)
