The Even Prouder Pride of America

October 21, 2013 | Roger

Hawaii is one of those must-see destinations. But the price of a week on the islands can give some serious sticker shock! One great way to save some money and see many of the different islands that make up our 50th state is on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Pride of America. This US flagged ship is one of the only ways to cruise the Hawaiian Islands, offering round trip options from Honolulu, and has just gone through a 30 million dollar renovation. The upgrades are pretty substantial, too.

24 Hours: Seattle

May 10, 2013 | Roger

Summer’s quickly approaching and that’s the season to see Alaska. So many Alaska tours jump off from Seattle on their way to Alaska which is a destination unto itself. So a lot of people spend an extra day in the Pacific Northwest, and with so much to see and do, we thought we’d help narrow down the options to the very best that the city has to offer.

Diadema: Costa’s Crowning Acheivement

December 14, 2012 | Roger

It’s been a rough year for Costa. But after a year with a lot of bad news, Costa seems to be ending the year on a very positive note, starting the construction of their newest upcoming ship, the Costa Diadema. True to its name, the future flagship of the Italian cruise line will be a crown jewel of the industry too.

The Diadema will be the largest Costa ship at sea, weighing in at about 135,000 gross tons. That’s about 15% larger than the biggest Costa ships out there, and when totally full, it will hold nearly 5,000 passengers. Details are pretty slim right now, but given all the flash of Diadema’s predecessors, we know this will be a pretty neat ship. The ship is scheduled to make its debut in the fall of 2014, and as more information comes out, we’ll be happy to share it right here.

Princeton, N.J. 
(Aug. 28, 2012) – So you’re thinking of taking a cruise, and you have to decide between a 4-star line and a 5-star line. If you go with the 5-star line, you can afford a nice, but mid-range suite.
