ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - February 06, 2014) - Vacation Express, the Atlanta-based vacation experts and planners are reinventing how travel consumers are catered to. Holding conversations, understanding their needs and most of all, molding memorable vacation experiences, Vacation Express is connecting with consumers. With that includes new vacation packages catered to new Mommies and Daddies desperate for some precious R+R before their bundle of joy is born.
Vacation Express understands what it means to be a new mom in the making; hence they traveled to various all-inclusive hotels and resorts to uncover the ideal escapes with just the right amount of fun; just like the OB ordered. We call this the Mommy-in-the Making prescription.
Grand Princess Riviera Maya Yucatán Platinum Suites provide adults-only R+R with a Zen-minimalist Japanese meet Mayan décor, yet guests can still enjoy the nightly activities from pumping nightlife to theatrical performances throughout the resort's extensive grounds. This special section of the grand resort includes 104 platinum suites, which provides the "quiet" each new parent is craving. In-room premium bar for the future dad and a mini bar are stocked daily, which means plenty of water bottles for the new mom. Suites provide a private balcony or terrace for those simple moments that include catching up with the latest edition of On Becoming Baby Wise by Gary Ezzo and pediatrician Robert Bucknam.
Other amenities include 24-hour room service, use of comfy bathrobes and slippers during the entire stay, in-room gift upon arrival, reserved area on the beach with butler service, one-day access to the spa's hydrotherapy pool , private check-in with cold towel on arrival and welcome drink [for dad, of course]. With the platinum suites 24-hour concierge lounge guests can arrange their daily dinner reservations for the à la carte restaurants, check their emails or search the Web with onsite computers, dad can order his favorite drink at the private bar [featuring domestic, international and premium brand drinks], while mom indulges in an iced-sugar free latte; ideal for her low-sugar non-alcohol diet.
"After enjoying the many flavors found at the nine à la carte restaurants, my personal favorite was La Hacienda, which featured authentic Mexican fare," says Mavian Arocha-Rowe, director of content and brand communications for Vacation Express. "Throughout the entire resort it is evident that service with a smile is their motto. However, here at La Hacienda you find precious older women speaking lovely words to you in Spanish as they shape and knead tortillas in front of the grill and prepare unique hors d'oeuvres that quench any possible prego craving. Plus, fresh organic meats are served and grilled at your table; providing the right dose of iron for those in dire need of lasting energy," she says.
Plus, mom and dad can enjoy free Wi-Fi in their room, private pools and discounts on green fees at external golf, spa treatments and motorized water sports.
Departing the nature-driven oasis at Grand Riviera Princess and arriving at Sandos Cancun Luxury Experience Resort, moms and dads are welcomed by untainted indulgence and modern eclectic décor throughout the hotel's pristine grounds. Guests' spirits are hyped with contemporary flair and at-your-fingertip hospitality where catering to babymooners is a natural form of art.
Luxury all-inclusive is defined by Sandos Cancun. Their Seasons restaurant is a reawakening of the senses where Master Chef Francisco Sixto creates a memorable molecular culinary menu with a touch of foams, Earth, air and spheres -- worthy of a standing ovation. "I have traveled to various hotels around the world and I cannot stop raving about the dining experience found within this resort, specifically Seasons. The menu changes often so regardless of the stay's length, guests will be enthralled by uniqueness," says Arocha-Rowe.
Guests can enjoy complimentary use of Spa de Mar's solarium, relaxation rooms, sauna, Jacuzzi, plus moms can plunge into their cold immersion pools; ideal for the bun in the oven hot flash feeling. For those who want to complete their babymoon with the upmost experience, a pre-natal massage is a must, followed by a Pevonia Sensitive Skin facial [perfect for the new moms who are experiencing various skin changes].
After the spa, guests can soak up the sun in one of their three infinity pools, which appear to be falling right into the turquoise waters of the Caribbean or lay on one of their beach Bali-like covered swing beds for an afternoon nap, accompanied by the sounds of crashing waves. Regardless of where moms decide to nestle their prego body and mind, Sandos' butler service makes any new mommy feel special. Serving up smiles with compliments they prepare Babymoon Mojitos [sugar and alcohol-free] and Babymoon Pink Cocktails [sugar-free cranberry juice with a splash of ok] to those who carry the bump.
Whether new moms choose to indulge in utopia at Sandos Cancun or uncover the flora at Grand Princess Riviera Maya, the travel planners at Vacation Express are experts when it comes to planning memorable babymoons. And just like the OB ordered, directions for Mommy-in-the Making prescription include: Pack light, unwind the mind with no agenda and plan to chill. For information on planning a babymoon, contact Vacation Express at 800.309.4717 or visit vacationexpress.com.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Vacation Express is a US-operated tour operator and is part of the Sunwing Travel Group Inc. Babymooners keep in mind; according to the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the safest time to travel is from 18 to 24 weeks. By this time, the nausea of the first trimester is hopefully a distant memory and moms are not quite as uncomfortable as they were in the beginning weeks.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. In his session at DevOps Summit, Michael Demmer, VP of Engineering at Jut, will discuss how this can...

The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
