Winter Olympics Lodging? Try Cruise Timeshares
Don't want a timeshare on land? How about one on sea? How about tossing the 2010 Winter Olympics into the mix? CruiseShip'Shares may be coming to a port near you. The ship Pacific Aurora, under a Canadian Flag, is scheduled to begin sailing in the Vancouver, BC area within the next few months. The ship's initial winter itinerary will offer a Sea-to-Ski program featuring Whistler Mountain, the site of the 2010 Winter Olympics. A spokesman said "to the best of our knowledge this is a unique vacation ownership opportunity and will be among the first for a commercial style cruise ship." First purchasers will have the opportunity to secure occupancy rights during the Olympiad. Vacation ownership unit sales are expected to start as early as mid July but the idea must first be approved by state regulators in Florida.
