  • carnival-ecstasy-bowWhat's better - new mega boats or the smaller, older ships like the Carnival Ecstasy? While I can't answer the first part, I can say that the Ecstasy is an extremely fine ship and was as clean and polished as the much newer Carnival Victory that we sailed on a few months ago. This trip was Heather and I's "test" to see if we "really liked cruising" and I have to say that the Ecstasy and her staff passed with flying colors - Heather and I even executed our "future cruise" deposit, so now we are committed to sailing again!

    This cruise wasn't fancy, wasn't long, and wasn't expensive. It was however a perfect post holiday romantic retreat.

  • When planning your next mancation, you may consider places where you can drink beer, watch sports, and generally hang out with the guys. What if I told you there was a hidden gem located in the middle of the United States that is just PERFECT for a mancation?

    Would you guess that I am talking about St. Louis? With more than 20 breweries in town, professional sports teams, casinos, and great BBQ, St. Louis should be at the top of your list this year!

  • Cumbria is home to some of the best British pubs in existence. Full stop. Those Cumbrians certainly know how to brew beer and make you feel welcome, but alcohol and atmosphere are subjective things, so we’ll take a look at a few of what we think are the best ones and you can decide whether or not you agree if you ever pay a visit to England’s most spectacular place.

  • Sport plays a big part in most mancations - and for many of you, heading off for a round of golf IS the mancation. If you and the guys are not talking about it, you’re probably watching it together or playing it together.

    Golf remains a popular hobby for many groups of friends and associates and it is also a great excuse to see some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. The following golf destinations are perfect if you want to spend some quality man time together and enjoy a round or two of golf... 

  • The UK is not even close to having any of the highest peaks in the world, but it is still an absolutely superb place for climbing. Scottish Highlands, Lake District and Peak District holidays will not disappoint any traveling climber, but, if you’re planning a climbing trip to the UK, what exactly are the best and highest peaks to tackle in the UK?

  • Guest Post from a Man Tripping reader: Getting married last year enabled me to go on an epic stag do to Edinburgh that will long in the memory. Why? Check out the itinerary to see what me and my three closest buddies got up to in the Scottish capital, where he stayed in one of many spacious Edinburgh cottages ideal for small groups.

  • If you’re thinking about a trip over to the UK, then you’ve got to squeeze London in. Better still, spend five days or a week here if you can in one of the oodles of fantastic city apartments London has to offer. And, of course, London’s got to be done in the utmost style, so we’ve compiled a list of the top five things to do for a great gentlemanly jaunt around one of the coolest and classiest cities in the world. And, of course, we’ve suggested a couple of swanky central London apartments for you to stay at while you’re there, too…

  • If you’re planning a vacation away with the guys, then you should look no further than the UK. The country is teeming with testosterone and will not disappoint on any level. We take a look here at some of the best things for blokes to do in Britain – there really is something for everyone.

  • My friends in the UK tell me that the English county of Northumberland is a popular destination for stag parties and groups of guys looking for thrills and spills aplenty. While our friends in the UK may already know the best places to stay, others should visit Northumberland cottages can provide an ideal base for a few days for a bunch of blokes, so with the accommodation sorted, all you’ve got to worry about is sorting out the entertainment.

    Fear not, though, as here at Man Tripping we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of things to do.

  • montana-fly-fishing-forrestersThinking about heading out into the wilderness for some Montana fly fishing? The Montana Office of Tourism was nice enough to help us out with a list of some of their favorite fly fishing lodges.

    I strongly encourage you to click on the links to check out the individual lodges. If you are anything like me, you will instantly want to whip out your checkbook and start making plans!

  • On my recent cruise on the Carnival Victory, one of my favorite stops was visiting the island of Barbados and the opportunity to check out the fantastic Turtle Beach Resort. 

    One of the tricky things about finding a good resort is finding a good balance between great staff, activities, and amenities. I have to say that I was super impressed by the island of Barbados, and I would recommend Turtle Beach Resort for a great mancation - or for our UK readers, a Lads Holiday! (Barbados is apparently very popular with UK vacationers and has regularly scheduled direct flights from London).

  • victory-review-headerCruising is one of the least tapped into mancation opportunities, but in reality to provides a great opportunity to party all day, see exciting sites, eat great food, and try things you maybe haven't tried in the past. We sailed on the Carnival Victory out of San Juan earlier this month and were absolutely impressed by what Carnival has to offer!

    With steak every night on the menu, some of the best beaches in the world, a bar around every corner, a chance to explore a new local beer and rum each day, and the opportunity to watch sports outdoors on a giant screen while waiters bring drinks right to you... can life get any better?
