When it comes to a special cruise ship meal: you always remember your first time. The year was 2004 and we were sailing on Celebrity Infinity for our first cruise to Alaska. We had heard about the specialty restaurant on board called SS United States. We were parents of a then 15 month old and getting to eat a hot meal in the main dining room was a luxury in itself. However here we were able to enjoy a really slow meal meant to allow you to savor your food.
Today, I wanted to take the time to pause in remembrance of the Challenger Seven. It was on this day twenty-five years ago that the space shuttle Challenger broke apart 73 seconds after liftoff. I was in the car on the way into school in Houston. I was late for some reason I can no longer remember. I am sure it was an excused tardy. I was listening to the rock station but they were not playing music.
We are looking for Facebook fans for our business page and we wanted to ask for your help. When we mentioned this at a business meeting this morning, someone asked how to do that. Take a look at some of our wall posts and think about your friends. If you think we would offer items of interest to anyone you know, click on the link that says “Share”. No one likes to be spammed in email and certainly not on Facebook, so we ask that you not send the suggestion to everyone on your friends list.
Have you seen this commercial from H&R Block? Maybe it is because I have a seven year old daughter, but doesn’t the sight of a huge pink wreck bunny put a smile on your face? It makes me ask the question are you using the right tool to book your cruise?
You have a lot of tools available to research and find information about cruises. There are cruise reviews, reports on ships, and feedback on ports. When it comes to you and your family’s valuable vacation time, are these the right tools for you? Ask yourself if those reviewers you are reading are willing to stake their professional reputation on their opinion. Will they be available in the middle of the night if something goes wrong? Also, please remember that information does not equal knowledge.
As I was avoiding football today, I started wondering what travel traditions do you have?
I have traveled with someone who collected sand from every beach she visited. Another insists on getting a massage during every trip. We like to indulge in Chinese food everywhere we go. How about you? Share your travel traditions in our comment section.
