Online release with images: http://new.pitchengine.com/pitches/a794efb2-a0e4-4795-bbd4-5358e1ff4303

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, March 6 – Vacationers who thought certain destinations would be out of financial reach might want to investigate the tax deductions available with volunteer vacations. Travellers who participate in specific volunteer programs can deduct contributions and expenses on their tax return, making some of these projects up to 40% lower in cost than they might otherwise expect.

GoVoluntouring connects travellers to over 3,000 projects in over 100+ countries worldwide. Many of these programs are registered charities and not-for-profits that can issue tax receipts. For Canadians and Americans, this means a long list of projects where they can expect to receive a portion of their contributions and expenses returned as a tax deduction. Here is a selection of the projects partners offering possible tax benefits:

For Canadians:

Care for Cuba: http://goo.gl/RDrld

Get a chance to peer into the beauties, struggles, and determination of a society that has long been shrouded in mystery to many North Americans. This volunteer vacation program focuses on research and education, cultural awareness, and academics.

Help build a sustainable orphanage in Guatemala: http://goo.gl/WVgmi

Help build a village for orphaned and abandoned children. According to UNICEF, Guatemala is home to more than 340,000 orphaned and abandoned children. Extreme poverty is the main culprit for this situation, but there is something being done about it.

Fighting Poverty in India: http://goo.gl/I9181

Globe Aware works by providing support for teachers, working with rescued child laborers, and assisting at day care centers catering to children below the poverty line in Jaipur, India.

For Americans:

Sea Turtle Conservation in Costa Rica: http://goo.gl/07ZeZ

Imperiled by egg poaching, hunting, the lights of coastal development, and long line fishing practices, leatherback turtles are also under threat from climate change and ocean pollution.

On The Trail of the Giant Panda in China: http://goo.gl/C1hSr

The long-term aim of this project is to create healthy, self-sustaining wild panda populations through the release of captive giant pandas to strengthen small isolated populations of wild panda.

Expedition Vietnam: http://goo.gl/BdBhA

Volunteers will be engaged in a variety of projects, from teaching English, to the building of playgrounds and better homes, refurbishment of buildings for use as schools, as well as other infrastructure to help raise the standards of living throughout rural Vietnam.

GoVoluntouring recommends that all volunteers consult their personal tax advisor before making any decisions as tax regulations often change. For more information on the tax deductible projects visit: www.govoluntouring.com/tax-deductible-projects or call toll-free (Canada/USA) 1.888.988.7897

JUST LAUNCHED: CUBA CRUISE REVOLUTIONIZES TRAVEL TO CUBA, MAKING FASCINATING PORTS AND CULTURE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL

JUST LAUNCHED: CUBA CRUISE REVOLUTIONIZES TRAVEL TO CUBA, MAKING FASCINATING PORTS AND CULTURE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL

Priced from CD$586 for a 7-day Circumnavigation Cruise, new Canadian line Cuba Cruise combines incredible value, delicious cuisine and a once-in-a-lifetime cultural exploration

www.yourcubacruise.com

Toronto, Canada – January 30, 2013: Newly-launched Cuba Cruise breaks new ground with its circumnavigation of Cuba, making the Island’s fascinating but otherwise hard to reach ports accessible and affordable for all. Each cruise includes the opportunity to visit world famous beaches, six UNESCO world heritage sites and four National Parks & Preserves, as well as in-depth exploration of Cuba’s dynamic culture. The experience offers the best qualities of cruising and all-inclusive getaways combined with a Cuba that few people see.

Prices start at CD$586 double occupancy for a seven-night cruise. The upcoming season will run from December 16, 2013 to March 31, 2014 with a total of 15 departures.

“It is exciting to offer something truly unique to the travel market, and Cuba Cruise is certainly the only offering of its kind,” said Cuba Cruise President Dugald Wells. “We provide the best of both worlds to our guests – a top-notch all inclusive cruise experience and the type of in-the-know exploration of Cuba’s remarkable sights, sounds, flavours and history that is usually reserved for locals only.”

Your Cuba, Accessible & Authentic

The line’s launch diversifies traditional Cuban travel options to provide access to the true, authentic Cuba, encouraging guests to “find your Cuba” beyond busy beaches and high-occupancy hotels.

Cuba Cruise has received overwhelming support from the people of Cuba and the Cuban Tourist Board. “Passengers of Cuba Cruise will be greeted as special guests to our home, and experience the warmth and generosity that defines the authentic Cuba,” says Ruben Jiminez, Director of the Cuba Tourist Board of Canada.

Easy To Reach with Havana & Montego Bay Embarkation Ports

Cuba Cruise’s 480 stateroom, 25,611 tonne ship Louis Cristal will circumnavigate Cuba with cruises departing from the exciting and vibrant city of Havana. There will also be cruises departing from Montego Bay in Jamaica making the experience even easier to access. The 7-night cruise will call at six unique ports, offering opportunities to visit Cuba’s fabled colonial cities where time stands still, wilderness nature preserves unseen by nearly all visitors before now, and of course, some of the most beautiful beaches in all the world.

Canadian Cuisine Meets Cuban Entertainment

Each cruise will feature the company’s signatures of impeccable service and delicious meals served onboard. All dining aboard Cuba Cruise will feature quality imported Canadian produce, beef and other food products (most notable in the a la carte Alberta Steakhouse,) and specialty Cuban dishes.

Cruises will feature a first-rate entertainment program of Cuban music and dance by local Cuban performers, along with very North American content including satellite broadcasts of hockey and football games in the Canada Sports Bar.

Cruise Line Veteran as CEO, and Award-Winning Partners Louis Cruises

Cuba Cruise is in steady hands with President Dugald Wells at the helm, a 20-year veteran of the cruise industry. Having been honoured in 2006 by Travel + Leisure Magazine as one of the Top 35 Innovators in travel today, Dugald is uniquely qualified to bring Cuba Cruise to the market. With ownership partner Louis Cruises, an industry leader with 25 years of experience in cruising and 78 years of award winning history in tourism, Cuba Cruise is sure to see success in the years to come.

The Louis Cristal is a modern cruise ship with a unique yacht-like modern design and a cruising speed of 18 knots. It features an array of amenities with all the comforts expected of today’s contemporary vessels, including spacious staterooms and suites (some with balconies, and each one equipped with shower, WC, wash basin, telephone, hairdryer & TV), elegant lounges and restaurants, casino and open promenades. The ship also features modern communication facilities including an internet corner, WiFi and roaming GSM mobile phone service.

Cruises are fully commissionable to Travel Agents at 12%, with land excursions and beverage package commissionable at 8%.

The company anticipates that easily accessible air, land and sea packages will soon be available through major Canadian air charter tour operators, with flights departing from all principal Canadian gateways.

The Mighty Arrow, Soca King of the World, dies at 60.

OLVESTON, Montserrat (Sept 15, 2010) – The Soca King of the World, Alphonsus “The Mighty Arrow” Cassell, died at his residence on the tiny Caribbean island of Montserrat today at the age of 60. 

The international recording artiste was diagnosed with cerebral cancer in early 2009. He was airlifted to the neighbouring island of Antigua last week for treatment. 

His family wishes to thank the medical teams, friends and family who gave their support during the period of his illness. 

Arrow or “Phonzie”, as he was referred to by close friends and family, is responsible for taking the soca genre to the international music scene with his 1982 smash hit, Hot, Hot, Hot. 

Having won the local calypso competition on four occasions, the talents of the proud son of Montserrat were spotted by former Beatles manager, Sir George Martin, who  worked with Arrow to turn his focus to his recording and touring career. 
 
Arrow recorded no less than 22 studio albums with other notable hits including Long Time, Dancing Mood, O’La Soca and Groove Master. 
 
He has performed at concerts, music festivals and gala events across the globe. 
 
“His death is a great loss to the family, his native land of Montserrat and the music world,” said his brother, Justin “Hero” Cassell, another talented vocalist and songwriter, who worked with Arrow during his peak years. 
 
Funeral announcements will be made in due course.

Kingston Crisis: an opportunity for Jamaica?

By Bevan Springer
New York Amsterdam News

KINGSTON CRISIS: AN OPPORTUNITY FOR JAMAICA?

NEW YORK (July 15,
2010) – Out of every crisis, there’s an opportunity, and Jamaicans – while
clearly unhappy with the recent “Dudus developments” that
brought chaos to a section of the capital, Kingston – are finding a
silver lining in the clouds of chaos that negatively impacted the nation
over the past several weeks.
Hindered by travel advisories following the civil unrest and tragic loss
of life in West Kingston, before the eventual arrest of Tivoli Gardens don
and alleged drug dealer Christopher “Dudus” Coke, Jamaica has
embarked on the tough assignment of restoring the image of a destination
known for peace, love and a tourism experience that has earned top ranks
in the Caribbean.
While tourism marketers work hard to comfort travelers that the tourist
centers of Montego Bay, Negril and Ochos Rios and even the capital of
Kingston were unaffected by the brief bout of inner
city neighborhood violence, they have reasons to be assured that
their efforts will bear fruit.
As well as the millions the Government has added to the
tourist board’s marketing arsenal to help restore the image of Jamaica,
the island has natural consumer appeal, not just because of its
beauty, but because of its friendly people, not the least the late Bob
Marley whose lyrics and melodies continue to feature in Jamaica’s
television commercials.
Following my recent visit to Kingston to “check out the vibes,” I
was asked by a Trinidadian colleague whether it was safe to confirm
travel plans to visit Kingston for Caribbean Fashion Week last month.
I assured him that everything was indeed “cris” and the Jamaica that
the world loves, is that same Jamaica today.
Every Caribbean island or metropolitan city for that matter has had
to deal with one public relations nightmare or another, but the
negative news and sometimes sensational reporting should not deter travelers from
visiting.
Besides the fact that we know Jamaica will recover, what are some of the
immediate opportunities for this island whose economy is expected to lose
hundreds of millions of dollars from the fallout from
the “Dudus” affair?
It’s an opportunity for both the public and private sector players
to rethink, refocus, and reposition marketing strategies.
It’s an opportunity to sharpen social media messages to the millions who
get their information from Facebook and Twitter.
It’s an opportunity to deepen linkages with the Jamaican Diaspora – the
media, community leaders, the business community and the clergy – and
equip them with the tools to promote their homeland to world audiences.
It’s an opportunity to hit the road and renew relationships with travel
agents and tour operators who sell the destination.
And it’s an opportunity to introduce travel agents, tour operators, the
media and influencers in the Diaspora to refreshed resorts and
new attractions that have been recently unveiled on the island.
The good news is that Jamaica’s tourism executives and public relations
representatives have in fact spared no energies seizing these
opportunities.
So, all things being equal, in the months ahead, thousands of travelers
should in fact “come to Jamaica and feel alright.”
