Girls Getaways by Smith Luxury Escapes
Each year I personally host 1-2 Girlfriend Getaways just for My Special Gal Pals. These are usually short Getaways (3-4 days) to some of my favorite destinations. Sometimes, they are a little longer. As mothers, wives, professionals, nurses, lawyers, teachers and EVERYTHING to EVERYONE in our lives. We deserve to getaway to escape and be pampered.
My exclusive Girls Getaways include Luxury Stays, Pampering, and Top Notch Amenities, to make you feel like the Royalty you are. These trips are designed to let you relax and recharge so that when you return to your "everyday life" you will be ready to be Superwoman again!

Carnival knew exactly what they were doing when they named this ship Carnival Magic... and we're sure you'll agree. Carnival Magic continues the Dream Class large-scale, bow-to-stern cruise ship fun including the food-and-entertainment space Ocean Plaza, the splashy stylings of Carnival WaterWorks™... and The Lanai, a convenient, scenic half-mile outdoor wraparound promenade deck. In other words, a cruise on Carnival Magic has no shortage of its namesake charm!
It's no surprise Carnival Magic debuted all-new ways to have a good time onboard, and continues to prove it with the outdoor fitness-and-fun of SportSquare™, featuring the world's first ropes course at sea. This is also the ship that introduced the world to Cucina del Capitano®, which serves up Italian favorites fit for a captain. Who can forget their first taste of RedFrog Pub®, with its laid back, not-a-worry-to-be-found atmosphere... plus its exclusive, tasty, not-a-drop-to-be-found (on land, that is) beer, ThirstyFrog® Red. And if you wanted to visit the original Guy's Pig & Anchor Bar-B-Que Smokehouse™... guess which ship you'd check out!
Keeping with the times, Carnival Magic features the delicious good times of Guy's Burger Joint™, BlueIguana Cantina™, Alchemy Bar® and RedFrog Rum Bar®. And keeping with the moves, there's even Lip Sync Battle™: Carnival, which lets you showcase yours up on stage.
Carnival Magic has a history of starting good things... and sharing them with guests.
