We love cruising…
and we’d love to share our experiences with you in this guide to cruising. We enjoy the onboard entertainment and the food and there always seems like there is something to do. It also gives us an opportunity to do nothing – we read and relax by the pool and just watch the ocean roll by. It takes us through a world of interesting places. We get to meet lots of people from all over along with friends that share our interests. We like it so much we have taken over fifty cruises – and have been around the world and from the Arctic Circle to Antarctica.

The age of the old ocean liners was marked by trans-Atlantics, Mediterranean and round the world cruises and were mainly for the very wealthy. Some twenty to thirty years ago cruising came into a new age as first-time cruisers selected the Caribbean, Hawaii and Alaska for their cruising vacations. As those cruisers returned, the industry enticed new customers with bigger and grander ships. Now to keep everyone coming back the industry is looking for new destinations. Australia, the South China Sea, South America and Antarctica to name a few.Every cruise port is different. Some see a virtual parade of cruise ships each week and some rarely have one visit. Being informed about facilities and what’s near the port before you arrive can help you make a plan on how best to get around, what attractions to see and what to expect when disembarking. For warned is forearmed.
