News for the Week


Thank you for another great year at My Itchy Travel Feet!

From Donna:

Hello from China! This week Seabourn Sojourn has called on Nakagusuku on the Japanese island of Okinawa and spent three days in Shanghai—a city filled with vibrant architecture. We had one sea day, plus a missed port, Zhujianjian, China, due to heavy fog. I have much more to say about this portion of our cruise but will save it for later. Shipboard life has offered plenty to do. Alan and I especially enjoyed the Dancing through the Decades dance party, the outstanding show by cruise director and vocalist, Sophie, plus a magical Shanghai sail away complete with caviar and a classical musical performance.

Three Chico's tops to wear on a luxury cruise. First photo: black and white polka dot sweater, second photo: peach top with gold accents, third photo: black top with decorative cutouts.

Did you see my article from last week about luxury cruise fashion? One of my secret weapons to finding outfits is the sales page at Chico’s.com—it’s the red tab at the top marked “Sale”. I found all three of these tops there. They’ll be easy to mix and match with other pants to create a number of outfits. When I shopped for this cruise, none of the current styles appealed to me (or were what I needed). So I headed over to the sales page and found plenty of choices. The fact that they were marked down was an added bonus. Use this special code to save even more money at Chico’s:  Pre-Mother’s Day Event: 40% Off Entire Purchase. Passport Members Take An Extra 5% Off. Use code: 76056. Good through May 13, 2018.
