PLANNING ‘I DO’

Planning a wedding ceremony and reception can be hard, but trying to figure out how guests are going to get there can seem almost impossible. So, TheKnot.com and Orbitz.com have teamed up to take the stress out of wedding travel and, in some cases, make it cheaper. Soon-to-be-married couples can send their guests an electronic Orbitz Save the Date card that includes everything they need to know about the celebration — including date, location, information on accommodations and a link to book travel on www.Orbitz.com. Guests can book their travel separately or bundle the flight and hotel together for a package price.

CHEAP CRUISING

Last year, EasyCruise ushered patrons into a new realm of no-frills cruising, weekly sailing itineraries in the Caribbean and along the French and Italian rivieras. The line is expanding with the introduction of EasyCruiseTwo. The 100-passenger ship will sail the rivers and canals of Holland and Belgium with stops in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Brussels and Antwerp. As with EasyCruise, patrons can join or leave the cruise whenever they want, but a two-night minimum is required. The Holland-Belgium cruises begin July 14. Prices start at $22 per person, per night. See www.easycruise.com for booking or more information.
