7 Cruise Travel Stories

An encore performance for 7 of my favorite cruise travel stories

It’s not often when I get asked to take the stage for an encore, so when  Trip Base launched a #MY7Links challenge, I considered it my cue to bring these posts back to center stage.   Thanks to Billie from Santa Fe Travelers who gave me the nudge, I mean nomination.

The post that I am most proud:

Meeting Captain Inger Klein Olsen on Cunard Lines’ Queen Victoria


Carrie Finley-Bajak (@CruiseBuzz) with Captain Inger Klein Olsen, Cunard Line

This post is my favorite. Not only was I able to get onboard one of the ships in my own backyard to interview a VIP, I was able to spend time talking with and getting to know a great leader.

My most controversial post:

Mission accomplished – last delivery of aid arrives to Haiti from Cruise 4 Haiti volun-cruise


Eva from For Haiti With Love sees one of her residents in the artists colony.

The Cruise4Haiti arrival to Labadee, Haiti was filled with bumps and turns and challenges. The video touches on the violence that was happening in the streets literally miles away from the idyllic compound run by Royal Caribbean.
