Mauiva Launches New Caribbean & Bahamas 7-Day ‘AirCruise’ by Private Plane

May 19, 2012

Mauiva announced that it has launched a third AirCruise itinerary, the “Sun & Fun Experience”, a seven-day vacation package via private plane that travels to three destinations throughout the Caribbean and the Bahamas. The Sun & Fun Experience is an upscale, yet affordable group vacation that is designed to make tropical leisure travel much more convenient and enjoyable.

Mauiva’s new itinerary will take flight beginning in September and will depart from Orlando, Florida, traveling to Grand Bahama Island, then to Grand Cayman, and finally, Cancun. Mauiva AirCruise guests will spend at least two days in each destination enjoying the all-inclusive experience – including deluxe resort accommodations, breakfast, lunch and dinner, and VIP access to various attractions and adventures.

As with every Mauiva AirCruise experience, a motorcoach meets guests plane-side at each destination, driving them to a 4-star resort where their bags await them in their room. The next day, a certified travel host leads optional sightseeing tours and other activities such as snorkeling and kayaking. The Sun & Fun Experience features some of the region’s top historical and ecological sites, including Chichen Itza and the Xplor eco-park in Cancun.

“There’s been tremendous demand for an AirCruise that stitches together the many beautiful sites and attractions of the Caribbean and the Bahamas,” said Lauren Volcheff, VP of Marketing for Mauiva. “The Sun & Fun Experience offers travelers a sampling of the best sun-soaked destinations in the Caribbean at an extremely attractive price point. Even if you’ve visited the Caribbean or the Bahamas before, you’ve never experienced anything quite like this AirCruise. It’s truly a unique and affordable way to travel and explore one of the world’s most popular regions.”

Mauiva is currently offering two Sun & Fun AirCruise packages – the “Comprehensive” package, and the “Fly, Stay, and Sun” package. The Comprehensive package, which lists at $1,999 per person at the double-occupancy rate, is all-inclusive and includes everything from flights and accommodations, to food and attractions. The Fly, Stay & Sun package, which lists at $1,449 per person at the double-occupancy rate, includes flights and accommodations only.

In April 2011, Mauiva unveiled two inaugural itineraries – including the “All-American East Experience” and the “Western Wonder Experience” – affording leisure travelers the opportunity to tour many of North America’s most popular destinations, such as Niagara Falls, Washington DC, Sonoma County, San Francisco and the Grand Canyon. To date, nearly 10,000 people have booked their AirCruise experience.
