Get the most out of your cruise

Whether it is learning about how to efficiently pre-plan your cruise or making the most out of your cruise with tips from my experiences, this blog will help you maximize your cruising experience.

Learn about onboard entertainment and experiences

Do you enjoy deck parties, Broadway-style shows, live music, comedy shows, or just relaxing by the pools? If so, I will provide you with information on some of the industry's most experienced entertainment on most major cruise lines.

Discover new places to eat, sweets and treats

I enjoy the main dining rooms, but some prefer the quick service or specialty restaurants on the ships. Read about my experiences with dining on-board and at ports-of-calls in the Caribbean and Bahamas. There are some restaurants you just can't miss!

Some of the cruise lines I can book for you:
