Social Media Cruise News Oct. 16. 2012


October 16, 2012 was a busy day online. After all it was a Travel Tuesday and that is always my busiest day for engagement. I think what sent my tweets into overload was the addition of #FSJet chat, which lured me into tweeting about what my travel colleague Rachelle Lucas should do on her around the world journey sponsored by Four Seasons Magazine.



Meanwhile back at the farm

I just saw that the Godmothers of Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Breakaway are in store for a makeover from my favorite people from Project Runway. I am sure they will “make it work.”


Countdown to Princess Cruises’ newest ship

The folks at Princess Cruises posted a construction photo of Royal Princess, their newest ship joining the fleet in June 2013.  I am looking forward to the cruise buzz on this ship. While I wait, check out some other Princess Cruises news here.

In high school and college I studied Mandarin Chinese. So when I saw Viking River Cruises newest YouTube video about Chinese calligraphy, I knew it deserved top spot in the Cruise Biz Buzz roundup. Besides my attempt of learning how to dip my brush and write some characters, I do love Chinese river cruising. Take a look  as Coralle Gao, master calligrapher, demonstrates the ancient Chinese art.


Other than these few posts, I am going to call it a day. A look at the Twitter stream of my favorite cruise lines shows me that very few cruise lines participated in today’s chats on Twitter. That is a little unusual. Perhaps everyone was in a meeting…

In the meantime, I am busy getting ready for my big trip to Spain, Morocco, and the Canaries via Silversea Cruises. I am getting my foreign currency, and planning my shore excursions. If you have any ideas about how to survive my first ride on a dromedary let me know.
