From the ships….

Cunard Line’s Peter Shanks attended the London Olympics and reported  about his experience on the We Are Cunard Line blog. We were able to catch up with Mr. Shanks to ask him a couple questions, read his responses here.

From Seattle with Love….

I hear that the weather in Seattle has been spectacular and that our avid cruisers heading to Alaska are in for some un-seasonally warm temperatures. This is good news for me because today I embark on my journey to Seattle to board Holland America Line’s m/s Oosterdam tomorrow for a 7-Night Alaska Explorer cruise.  You can keep up with my voyage right here.

It’s a dog’s life via Cunard Line’s Kennels

Britain’s Got Talent winners Pudsey and Ashleigh sailed back from New York on board Queen Mary recently. It’s good to see the Cunard Line dog kennels getting used. In fact, the kennels are frequently used to transport pampered canines across the Atlantic. If you missed my article about the dog kennels on Cunard, you can read the story here.
