Testimonials from a few of our Happy Travelers!
My vacation with VIP Vacations was amazing! It was my first time to Mexico and my travel agent made everything so easy to understand. I loved how promptly I was addressed with any questions or concerns and will continue to vacation with VIP. My trip was beautiful the resort my travel agent found for me was clean, safe, and most importantly relaxing!! Thank you VIP for giving me and my fiancé a great first time to Mexico but in general an amazing vacation for us to remember forever!!! Thank you Cathy & Ryan.

Simply incredible. We took a cruise out of Miami to Key West and Cozumel. We hadn't been to any of these places before, and they exceeded all of our expectations. The cruise staff were phenomenal, and the sites at each of the locations were so much fun. We took advantage of all of our cuisine options and activities on board. It was so hard to disembark on the last day! I would absolutely love to go back!
We had a wonderful time with a very busy schedule! Our time consisted of viewing Maragaritaville in Key West, Florida and enjoying some wildlife in the ocean near Mexico! We absolutely loved the desserts and couldn't pass them up any night we were there! We even ended up meeting with some others people from our town and making many more friends. We would definitely do another Carnival cruise in the near future!
My husband and I whisked away on our honeymoon to Hawaii at 4:30 am after an amazing wedding the night before. Neither one of us had ever been to Hawaii, and we were so amazed at its beauty. We were 30 going 13, just feeling free doing everything we could to enjoy this precious moment. Hawaii exceeded all our expectations and we only hope to go back again.
My husband and I were first-time cruisers this summer. Our travels have usually consisted of planning ahead of time and thumbing through many travel books to prepare for our vacations and/or backpacking adventures. The thought of taking a cruise never really occurred to us at all. In fact, we had this mind set that cruises would be best for us when we retired. However, when the opportunity came from Odenza, we decided to try it out. While we did have some reservations on whether or not we'd enjoy the cruise, the trip went beyond our expectations. We chose to upgrade our 2 night cruise to a 3 night one to Key West and Cozumel, Mexico and had such a fantastic time! We enjoyed everything from the service and food to the entertainment and spa services provided on board. Both my husband and I are definitely looking forward to another cruise experience in the very near future! Thank you VIP Vacations!

My husband and I booked our honeymoon to Mexico through VIP Vacations NY. It was the most amazing trip I have ever taken. The food was incredible and the amount of activities available to us were awesome. We were even fortunate enough to have perfect weather every day we were there. The hotel we were at was very accommodating and the staff was very polite. We had so much fun and would love another opportunity to travel again.
Our vacation was great. It actually was our honeymoon to South Florida. We visited a lot of places and did some tours. We took an airboat tour in the everglades and actually saw a live alligator. That was a big highlight of the trip. We then took a romantic sunset cruise out in Key West. Yes, Key West was the bomb!
It was my husbands first time EVER flying and going out of the country when we took our honeymoon to Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. We had an amazing time sharing this new experience. Viewing the beach, walking along in the sand, eating the local food, and participating in various excursions was all the most simple but truly memorable times as newlyweds. The best part of the vacation was the couple’s spa package we had, in which the hotel took great measure to make it very romantic and send us away with a special gift. A lot of first moments were captured on this trip and I think he especially enjoyed driving a dune buggy all through the water and mud causing us to become very dirty but very excited about the fun we were having! Although we almost missed our flight because he was in the bathroom (hacking up his nervousness of flying the 1st time), we made it and it was the perfect honeymoon ever! My only compliant is that the hubby did not want to take the offered paid one extra night stay in the Dominican Republic due to over booking on AA.....sadly we had to return to the states. The travel vacations manager (Debbie McMaster) and another representative Bree Rehaume took care of my file in a very timely manner and they were very helpful, patient, and accommodating. I thank them for taking over the situation in a professional manner, kudos to them!
Our vacation was wonderful! My husband and I went to Cancun, Mexico for our second honeymoon, and it was our first time leaving the country! We had so much fun, everything was so exciting. My favorite part of the vacation was swimming with the dolphins, my husband's was sitting out on the beach all day and all night. Since I was a little girl I always dreamed about going places and seeing new things, I loved our vacation to Cancun, we stayed their for six days and five nights. They had good food, fun activities, and the hotel was clean, and really made you feel welcomed. Well, all I can really say is we had a blast and it will be some awesome memories for a lifetime. I can't wait to go on our next vacation. VIP Vacations NY rules! You guys were a great help, really fast and made everything really easy. Thanks from the McGhee's!
Our vacation was so overdue when it came time to go on our Eastern Caribbean Cruise! My boyfriend, Bill, and I have traveled around the world, but both of us were new to the Cruising experience. We came away from that trip well-rested, in love, excited, impressed and overjoyed at how awesome the Carnival cruise was! Thank you again for arranging such a fantastic vacation, that was MUCH appreciated from a hard working couple who definitely needed time away from the daily grind :) Michelle Ursini & Bill Banham
We loved our vacation. It was for our one-week honeymoon. We visited Playa del Carmen, Mexico, and stayed in the all-inclusive resort the Reef Playacar. Our vacation also included transportation to/from the airport to our resort, very convenient. The resort was very nicely located right on the Riviera Maya beach. Since it was all-inclusive we got to eat and drink whenever and whatever we wanted, and it was nice to not have to worry about our spending! During our stay, we got to relax on the white sandy beaches in our resort, went on some excursions to visit the ancient Mayan ruins in Tullum and in Chi Chen Itza, got to snorkel in the ocean and in the underground fresh water pool, also got into some action such as zip lining, and wave runner. At night, we visited the town center in Playa del Carmen, got to sample different local food and drinks. All and all it was a really enjoyable experience and we're very happy with our vacation!
Right for the start of planning our trip with VIP Vacations NY we were already excited, and our agent Kalee sure made things easy to plan. We sailed on the Carnival Elation and had a wonderful time. The crew made every minute pure excitement, from how friendly the stateroom stewards were to the excitement in the dining room. We couldn't have asked for a better time…actually it could have been better, it could have lasted longer! We are going to have to start planning out next trip again very soon.
I met my fiancé 5 years ago and we had never been on a vacation before by ourselves. If we ever traveled it was always for a "reason" like a wedding, college mate birthday or business meetings. We received a VIP Vacations NY package for a mini vacation, so we choose to go to Myrtle Beach, SC for a weekend! We had the best time ever on top of it all it was our anniversary and my fiancé’s birthday. We were grateful our room even had a Jacuzzi tube!! We spent quiet time by the beach that we missed very much, having 3 kids at home. We went to many restaurants and loved the local sights, we even went to a carnival that we had not done in years. OMG! Not to mention it was Harley Davidson bike week the weekend we arrived. We just had tons of FUN! And VIP Vacations NY made it all possible, the staff were polite and professional the whole time. From the time VIP staff contacted us to set up our trip they were very attentive and patient with us. We would love to travel through VIP Vacations NY again.
We used our certificate to go on our honeymoon, and it was absolutely amazing! We went to Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The hotel was wonderful. The staff took care of our every need and were very friendly. We spent a week in Mexico and saw many sites. We so did not want to come home! We are parents of six children and live very busy lives. It was absolutely wonderful to be able to get away and just pamper ourselves for a few days. Thank you so much for the wonderful vacation!
Our vacation was absolutely wonderful! Odenza was so accommodating - finding us an ocean-view room for the week following our wedding at very short notice! We had a fantastic time, and very much enjoyed the cruise vacation. We were kept busy the entire time, and even were able to find a minute or two to relax! The cruise staff were excellent and the people we met were just as fantastic! Thank you very much for this cruise vacation!
Our Vacation was Amazing! We loved Costa Rica. After a year of wedding insanity 5 days alone with my new husband was extremely rewarding and worth the wait. Great food, great people, great country. We even came home with money in our pocket and didn't feel like we missed out on anything. Bree was so helpful and patient - I will be calling her to assist me with our future travel plans. We loved Costa Rica so much we are even considering purchasing a vacation home with our family. Thank you VIP Vacations NY for helping us obtain our dream honeymoon!
Where do I begin? First off, when we arrived at our resort in Kelowna, we weren't expecting much. But once there, we were blown away by everything the resort had to offer. It was the perfect place to spend our engagement celebration. The entire trip was amazing! It was the third week of March. We went from 20 degrees in the valley to -15 degrees in the mountains. We were a short trip from Big White ski area and the unbelievable powder snow that awaited! We spent our vacation basking in the pools and jacuzzis at the dreamlike resort that Odenza had set us up with, then a short drive away was a winter wonderland! Just when we thought is was over (literally calling for a late check-out at 11:00am), front desk calls and lets us know we were only scheduled to check-out the next day! The extra night was icing on the cake as this was already our best trip ever! I can't thank you enough for making this a perfect trip that we will remember for the rest of our lives! Maricel Manzano was our agent. I just wanted to take a second to mention that she really made our booking process a breeze and it was a pleasure working with her. She was always quick to respond and truly made us feel like we were the only people she was dealing with. She seemed genuinely excited for us and I would be happy to deal with her anytime!
Not only was this a vacation, it was a honeymoon and a much needed one at that. With a recent family cancer diagnosis, a loss of a family member, my dad and step mom divorcing, and a major surgery for my husband’s autistic sister, a honeymoon would not have been possible for us at the time. Luckily we had a gift that Odenza helped make possible. Our honeymoon was a great escape from the real world and we were able to focus on us and enjoy our first week of marriage.
This vacation was the best thing in the whole world.... words cannot describe how much fun it was. Thanks to Odenza we were able to have had this much fun on our honeymoon. Odenza was true to everything they told us and much more. The ocean was so beautiful...our Cruise to the Bahamas and also our 7 day stay in Daytona and Orlando had so much to do that you could never be bored. Our cabin on the ship and our hotels in Florida were both very very nice and the staff were so so kind. I would love to go back because we didn't get to do and see everything in Florida or the Bahamas or all the activities on the ship that we wanted to do. This was a once in a lifetime experience for us Thanks to VIP Vacations NY!!!!!!
It was our first cruise and we were very impressed! Carnival is a fun ship indeed. The onboard service was phenomenal, and we really enjoyed the dining experiences we had. The entertainment was good fun, and we enjoyed meeting lots of people from all walks of life. And the level of stress was so low that the only thing to worry about was which scheduled event do I want to go to? And how am I going to choose what to eat for dinner? Thanks for such a relaxing and enjoyable experience!
We had a lot of fun and enjoyed all that the cruise had to offer. The food, entertainment and excursions were fantastic and our room was spacious and modern. We were lucky that we had great weather so that we could enjoy the excursions and got to relax in the sunshine.
DARRICK LAMONT SMITH
Our honeymoon was amazing! We flew to Puerto Plato in the Dominican Republic. It was an all-inclusive resort with such great food. There was so much to do at the resort from swimming to snorkeling. We had an amazing time snorkeling. The people were really friendly and nice. We loved every bit of our trip and we owe it all to Odenza for the arrangements. Thanks VIP Vacations NY!
TONI & ALEX HEAVENER
My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary this summer in Cancun, Mexico. Our vacation was a paradise. This vacation set the bar very high for us and it made us promise each other to have a vacation to celebrate our anniversary every summer from now on. Our experience with Odenza was better than either of us could ask for. Odenza provided us with our hotel for five nights, transportation to and from our hotel from the airport, and we felt that all of our needs were fulfilled during the entire vacation. My husband and I have been on a lot of vacations together but none can compare to our trip to Cancun. We had a very busy summer so to end our summer with a trip to Cancun was just what we needed. We shared so many memories during our vacation that it will always be remembered for the rest of our lives. The food was delicious, the people were so kind, the beaches were beautiful, and the trip was just amazing. It was the BEST vacation we have ever had and it was all thanks to VIP Vacations NY Marketing Group. Odenza has great employees. All the employees that assisted my husband and me during our vacation were outstanding. They knew everything we asked and they were so helpful. Above all, they were always thinking of what to do to satisfy us, and that means so much when you are trying to vacation.
Our vacation was AMAZING. We used our overnight stay in Niagara Falls for our honeymoon. The hotel was so nice they gave us an upgraded room at no additional cost! It was the most amazing room I had every stayed in! Thank you for organizing this for us!
JAMES & PATRICIA PERIERA
My vacation was absolutely amazing! I loved it! Very different from a resort vacation so it was a bit hard to get used to in the beginning (since it was our first cruise), but I loved going to a new place each day. The staff on the ship were awesome, and there's so much entertainment! We were never bored! Of course, this wouldn't have been possible without Odenza to help us book this cruise. I must say, it was very stress-free to book with Odenza and I had all my paperwork and everything I needed in time. Any questions I had, they were very prompt at answering me, and very helpful/experienced! Can't wait to book my next cruise! You guys are awesome! Thanks for helping us book our very first cruise, and I'm sure there will be many more to come!!!
Our Honeymoon cruise was absolutely amazing! The food was fantastic and the service was impeccable (I still think the steward was hiding around the corner, ready and waiting to clean our room the moment we stepped out!). The entertainment on board was wonderful. The excursions were so much fun and gave us memories that will last a lifetime! Did you know that kissing a sting ray is supposed to be good luck? If that's true, I'll have luck to spare since I got to give it 3! Looking forward to our next cruise!
Our vacation was to the Vik Hotel Arena Blanca in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The weather was wonderful (high 80's) and the resort was beautiful. The service was great and the staff was friendly, as a matter of fact, everyone was friendly. There were a nice variety of dining venues on the resort and they all served delicious food. We went on a 4-wheel excursion which was so much fun and it gave us a chance to see the island outside of the resort and also to sample the native cuisine. The beach was so beautiful it seemed unreal. It reminded me of one of those Corona Beer commercials which is why I chose a photo I took trying to re-create one (minus the Corona).
KAMILAH GREEN ELLIS
We had a blast on our honeymoon in the Bahamas! The all-inclusive resort was very nice! We enjoyed the sights, the sounds, the food, the entertainment, the recreation, and the overall experience! We loved our time together there and would really love a chance to have a great vacation again!
We had one of the nicest rooms I've ever had for our honeymoon, with an amazing view of Niagara Falls (both of them), the Niagara River, the surrounding city, and even my hometown of Buffalo off in the distance. Mornings were amazing, evenings even more so, and we were just speechless every time we glanced out our floor to ceiling windows. Thank you to our travel agent at VIP Vacations NY for helping us with such a perfect honeymoon, it was absolutely unforgettable!
ASHLEY MARIA SPRINKEL-McDOWELL
It was out first time flying out of the country. We went to Dominican Republic. It was an all-inclusive resort. We had so much fun. Got to relax and enjoy our honeymoon. We went horseback riding for the first time which was so much fun. We got to see the city of Puerto Plata. The food was great and the people at the resort were so nice and helpful. We stayed there for 5 nights and 6 days. The resort had so many fun things for us to do such as water sports, board games and nightly entertainment. Thank you so much for the experience. We also went on an outback tour that was so much fun. The tour guide was funny so it made the trip fun!!
We used a 2 night free stay in New Orleans and had an amazing trip! We had never been to New Orleans but we are true Saint’s fans. We decided to plan a trip to go to the New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons game. It was great; our hotel was located 5 minutes away from the Superdome. The room was high floor and had a great view of the city and Superdome. Thank you Odenza for making the process so simple to book, and for putting us in an excellent hotel. You truly helped make our trip unforgettable. Your customer service team and my travel agent were so helpful in answering my emails and phone calls.
