Some first-time cruisers asked if I could give them tips to help prepare them for their cruise and to help them know what to expect. Glad to do it.
Cruise ships do vary but these tips apply to most vessels and are not pandemic specific.

But, when you are heading to the high seas, these tips might be useful to peruse before walking up the gangway for that great adventure.
Do you like green eggs and ham? How about moose juice or goose juice? Maybe Fruit Loops French Toast?
Chances are your children like them. And now Carnival Cruise Lines is sharing one of those popular recipes so youngsters can enjoy the treat at home.
It’s not nearly as cool as sailing aboard a Carnival “Fun Ship” or enjoying the ship’s whimsical “Green Eggs & Ham Breakfast,” starring The Cat in the Hat and his friends.
Happy birthday to Carnival Cruise Line. Well, really, that is an early birthday greeting. Carnival will turn 50 years old in March 2022 and the cruise line is planning a big celebration.

I remember the first time it happened to me. I had enjoyed clam chowder many times, particularly when I lived near Cape Cod and worked at a Massachusetts newspaper.
But on a long-ago cruise when I ordered clam chowder, I received a big white bowl with some chopped clams in the bottom. Mighty skimpy.
Surrounded by cats of all sizes waving their paws is a bit hypnotic. Maybe that’s how the owner of this unusual place got started on her surprising feline collection. The little cuties might have hypnotized her.
“I’ve just always loved cats,” owner Micha Robertson said. “From the time I was born, I have had cats. And I’ve always collected cat-themed merchandise.”
We might not be traveling yet, but the summer awaits and there are so many phenomenal places waiting for you. Highlighted here are a few for the New Year!
Venice, Italy – Norwegian Cruise Line’s Venice
If there’s a more romantic place in Europe than Venice, we haven’t heard of it. Gondola rides through the canals, surrounded by hundreds of years of history on either side. Renaissance and Gothic palaces waiting for you to explore and the simply stunning St. Mark’s Basilica. Stunning museums, and the home of gorgeous Murano glass, there’s simply so much to explore here and Norwegian Cruise Line can take you there.
