There are plenty of amazing benefits to being an Inspirato member—including exclusive access to homes, events, and partnerships—but perhaps one of the most special is the opportunity to embark on an Inspirato Only cruise.
Though she’d been on a few other cruises before, Inspirato member Lacey J.’s perspective changed completely when she began cruising with the club.
She and her husband have since gone on two more cruises with Inspirato and have already booked a fourth for 2020.
We love Inspirato and we’ve traveled a lot with them, and the cruises are definitely the favorite thing that we’ve done.Lacey J.Inspirato member
They enjoyed them so much that they invited a few friends to come along on their last excursion, one of whom had never cruised before.
Lacey mentioned that one of the things she loves about Inspirato cruises is the ease with which her pre- and post-trip accommodations are handled. She said that she and her husband were specifically concerned about nailing down Venice accommodations for their Italy cruise in 2016. But those worries were quickly cast aside during the planning process with her Care team.
On the cruise from Monte Carlo to Barcelona, for example, they were able to explore the salt mines of Mallorca in Spain.
“We had selected a tour to do (in Mallorca) to the salt mines, which is where they essentially let the ocean water into these trenches, and then the sun evaporates the water and the salt is left over,” she said. “It was a really great tour, and we loved it. … Then when we got back to our room that night, we saw they had put in a little bottle of the flor de sal”—the salt from the Mallorca mines.
But at the end of the day, after exploring a new destination and taking in the local culture, one of the best parts about cruising with Inspirato, she said, is returning to the comfort of the ship and the other members.
