I wonder why I liked this post so much from Carnival Cruise Lines? Maybe it was because my birthday was last month and I did not get a Carnival Cruise either. Anyway, I liked the graphics and the emotion the photo coveys. What do you think?


Countdown to Breakaway

With just 313 days to go Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Breakaway will be ready for guests.  A big milestone was reached today at Meyer Werft, the stern of Norwegian Breakaway was set into place.

These pretzels are getting as much love as Justin Bieber

While reading through the Norwegian Cruise Line comments about pretzel rolls, I almost thought I was on a fan page for a rock star. Shoutouts for the carb star included:  first thing I get onboard;  amazing; OMG – those are the best and I can’t get enough when cruising. All I can say is that these must be some really amazing pretzel rolls.
