Travel providers are pivoting to provide more of what consumers demand in the new post-pandemic era, including small group tours, adventure-themed outdoor trips, and luxury “bucket list” vacations, according to AAA Texas.

AAA Texas travel advisors are now busy booking destinations such as Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, the Caribbean, and West Coast cruises.

We are currently in what is known as “Wave Season.” That is the time of year from January to March when cruise lines offer some of their best promotions and many travelers book their cruise vacations during this period. After canceled sailings and travel restrictions due to the pandemic, consumer demand to return to seas and rivers is expected to be very high this year.

A new AAA survey finds 52 percent of U.S. adults are just as likely or more likely to consider taking a cruise vacation than they were before the pandemic. That number is up from 45 percent one year ago.

For those planning 2023 vacations, AAA Texas has the following tips:

  • When considering accommodations, look into booking a suite or villa rather than individual guest rooms, especially when traveling together as a family. It often can cost less while providing more spacious accommodations.
  • Book Travel Protection Plans to ensure you’re covered for unexpected occurrences.
  • Book activities or shore excursions early, since they are likely to sell out.
  • When traveling internationally, passports must be valid for at least six months prior to your return. AAA Travel can help you rush your passport as well as take your photo.
  • Always carry a change of clothes, your medications, your itinerary and any other must-have items in your carry-on luggage.
  • Look into arriving a day earlier than the formal start of your tour or cruise and/or staying a day later by booking a hotel room so that you are not too rushed or tired to enjoy your vacation.
  • Arrive at the airport early. Recommended time for domestic is 2+ hours and international is 3+ hours.
  • Consult with your travel advisor for other vitally important information specific to your destination.
