Cruise Trivia Quiz: December ‘63

June 27, 2019 | Jackie Sheckler Finch

This bit of trivia may be a toughie because many of you probably weren’t even born when this song was popular.

The quiz is to identify what quartet sang the powerhouse song. Released in 1975, the song quickly soared up the hit charts.

Although I was around when the song originally came out, I also got to enjoy it one evening aboard the Celebrity Summit. Using no stage set or props and with only powerful voices and excellent lighting, the ship’s performers soon had passengers singing along with them. Read more...

I don’t even drink coffee. So what was I doing sitting at Café al Bacio on the newly renovated Celebrity Summit?

Three Ways to Navigate Hurricane Season on a Cruise

October 25, 2012 | Roger

Cruising in the late summer and fall can be a fantastic deal. Part of that reason is because the weather doesn’t always cooperate – it is hurricane season after all.

However, there are some things that you can do to minimize the impact of a storm on your travel plans – even without changing your schedule. We’ve put together a list of three things that anyone can do to ensure the best possible experience for a cruise.

What do you do on that Private Island anyway?

October 24, 2012 | Roger

Cruising the Caribbean, its hard to get excited about those private island destinations sometimes. It might just feel like another day at the beach when in reality, the ship’s pool might work just as well. But cruise lines are making these private destinations a real attraction and something worth visiting. Royal Caribbean has Labadee, off the coast of Haiti, and they make the client experience very special. Here’s a quick video about all the fun that Labadee has to offer. We’ll see you on the zip line!

Many seven night Royal Caribbean sailings stop at Labadee, take a look at all your different options by clicking here.

These days, it is sort of a given that Holland America Line has some of the best food at sea for the larger mass-market cruise lines. The buffet tends to be out of control good, the main dining rooms provide excellent food on a regular basis, and the Pinnacle Grill set an industry standard for fine dining at sea.  But this commitment to good eats isn’t limited to mealtime on Holland America Line ships.
