An Orlando-based company called Mauiva (pronounced Mow-ee-va) this week introduced a 7-day “AirCruise” that serves the Caribbean & the Bahamas.  A Mauiva AirCruise is an all-inclusive destination-hopping experience via private plane.  The company’s Caribbean & Bahamas AirCruise (dubbed the “Sun & Fun Experience“) will take flight beginning in September and will depart from Orlando, traveling to Grand Bahama Island, then to Grand Cayman, and finally, Cancun.

Mauiva AirCruise guests spend at least 2 days in each destination enjoying the all-inclusive experience – including deluxe resort accommodations, breakfast, lunch and dinner, and VIP access to various attractions and adventures.

What’s most surprising is the price.  It’s only $1,999 at the double-occupancy rate.  That’s a pretty good deal.

Here’s some more travel news you can use:

  • Virgin America is getting into the TV production business.  Starting this month, Virgin passengers will be able to access original content by such big-name stars as Will Ferrell, Ben Stiller and Seth Green.  The “Virgin Produced Channel” was developed in partnership with Virgin’s TV production division.
  • Ever wondered when is the best time to book your flight?  The New York Times recently dove into this question and published some interesting insights.  Note that they suggest using Yapta.
  • After years of neglect, airlines are turning their attention back to their airport lounges.  As competition for the lucrative business traveler has intensified, airlines are pumping money into their lounges, adding more comfortable seating and power outlets, plus upgrading snacks, drinks and other amenities.  Hey, at least they’re putting your baggage fees to good use.
