What is the difference between a twin bedded room and a double room?

A double room is a room designed to accommodate two people, though not necessarily with two separate beds. A twin bedded room has two separate beds of any size; this is what we usually reserve for our travelers.

What size is a triple room?

A triple room is the same size as a twin bedded room. It will have beds to accommodate three people; however, we cannot guarantee that there will be three separate beds. If there are only two beds, a roll-away may be requested but also cannot be guaranteed.

When will I receive my travel documents?

Travel documents, including any air tickets, itineraries, and other information, are sent approximately two to three weeks prior to departure provided full payment has been received.
