We started traveling with Olivia in 2005. We were on the Mexican Riviera cruise from San Diego. It was going to be our only Olivia trip because of the expense and we're not rich people. We got sooooo addicted we set up a financial plan to do at least 1 Olivia per year. We just booked our 15 Olivia trip (2013 Provence/Burgundy). So as you can see, we're doing more than 1 per year by taking on extra work and pinching pennies on other stuff. Traveling with Olivia has been a wonderful experience for us. We just got back from Tahiti Paradise which was a trip of a life time but, of course, we way that about all the trips. Enjoy!
PS. I hear you need lots of bug spray at Punta Cana for the evening outdoor shows.
