Princess Cruises will add an Adults Only Retreat to their Royal Princess ship and Delta Travel begins its new education program to offer members more travel options.

Sometimes it's hard to know where to go next when it comes to vacationing. Delta Travel in Valencia has implemented a new program to educate their members and give them ideas on where to go next and what to do. According to Delta's program director, "It's about giving our members options and ideas that they've never heard of before. For example, the Royal Princess has a new solution for cruisers that want some time away from children, and we love to share this information with our members.

According to the Cruise Critic Website, "Princess Cruises' newest ship Royal Princess, set to debut June 2013, will feature an expanded adults-only Sanctuary area as well as the line's first ever private cabanas.

Both the Sanctuary and adjacent Retreat pool are popular on the line's other ships, Jan Swartz, Princess Cruises executive vice president said. "So aboard Royal Princess we're taking both of these areas and giving them a new twist."

New elements in the Sanctuary, which on Royal Princess is 20 percent larger, include rock and topiary gardens that create a path leading to a new central pavilion in which passengers can relax on plush lounge chairs or circular daybeds while Serenity Stewards provide refreshments. Entrance to the Sanctuary costs $15 for a half day or $25 for a full day, per person.

However, the main new "twist" for both is private cabanas.

In the Sanctuary, four cabanas will be available, all with personal televisions with noise-reducing wireless headphones, comfy sofas, a robe and slippers, welcome cocktail and healthy snacks like nuts and dried and fresh fruit. A fully stocked mini-bar offers water and soda as well as a choice of alcoholic options. Prices for the Sanctuary Cabanas start at $80 for a half day. Also located in the Sanctuary will be two Lotus Spa cabanas for outdoor massage experiences. Each Lotus Spa cabana will offer a resting area with television and plush chairs and a treatment area with two massage tables for couples' massages. Several packages will be available with pricing yet to be determined.

At the Retreat Pool, six poolside cabanas will offer private poolside space with two loungers per cabana. Rental costs start at $50 for a half day.

Available to all cabana purchasers will be the gourmet cabana picnic baskets, packed with antipasti, sandwiches, pizza and deserts, and paired with a premium wine. Baskets serving two people begin at $40."

Delta is a private members club where one can join by attending a presentation at their Valencia site and get discounts on any and all travel.
