Concierge.com Helps Consumers Research Travel Destinations to Ring in The New Year With Style
NEW YORK (November 14, 2000) -- Last year, the threat of Y2k and talk of possible Armageddon kept many potential travelers from ringing in the New Year away from home. However, all is not lost for those consumers who missed their chance to celebrate the New Year in style. According to the Gregorian calendar, January 1, 2001 is the real millennium, and any traveler who wants to celebrate this New Year like it's the turn of the century can log on to www.Concierge.com to discover great travel deals, recommendations for unique destinations and valuable and insightful advice from both experts and fellow travelers.
Some of the top "Real Millennium" holiday hot spots include a celebration where it officially begins - on the Meridian Line in Greenwich, England - where the world's largest dome is being built to commemorate the occasion. Or travelers might prefer to celebrate on the Indian Ocean Explorer, cruising around the exotic Seychelles Islands in first-class comfort. Closer to home, the "Real Millennium" Cruise takes passengers on a six-night celebration dancing under the stars of the Bahamas.
