I have some thoughts to share about the news media and the cruise industry. Before I begin, I want to stress that my thoughts go out to the families of those who are missing and who lost their lives as a result of the tragic accident of Costa Concordia on Friday January 13, 2012. I am reserving judgment and speculation on what actually happened and the aftermath until all the FACTS are released. With that said, I think what has been written and broadcast about the cruise industry in the weeks since the accident shows a lack of integrity by many of those in the media
Did you know that one of our specialties is selecting, planning, marketing and administering cruises for groups of all sizes? We mention it in our signature in every post. The other day someone asked me what would be a good candidate for take a group cruise. Immediately I began to list off organizations that should consider taking a group cruise. I wanted to share 25 organizations that should consider a group cruise.
- Clubs and organizations
- Women’s networking groups
- Dance Groups
- Ballroom Dancing
- Chess Clubs

I read other blogs quite a bit and learn from many thinkers outside of my field. Recently, Chris Brogan put up a list of 100 blog title ideas for others to use as a stepping off point for their own blogs. Of these titles, “When is FREE better and when is it not?” spoke to me. As many of you know, we are fee based travel consultants. We are not dependent on commission income from our suppliers and as such we can make a recommendation for a vacation that is best suited for our clients wants and needs.
If you have ever read the note at the bottom of each and every post, you may have notived that we are travel consultants. One of the ways we become experts is not from book knowledge but from actually tasting, touching, feeling, smelling and exploring parts of the world. We thought we would use this post to show you the office of a professional travel consultant who travels.
