Cruise Biz Buzz | July 10, 2012

Cruise Biz Buzz – Cruise News from Social Media for July 10, 2012. Highlights from Silversea Cruises, Seabourn, Lindblad Expeditions, Celebrity Cruises

A glance about what this week’s top stories are in the social media sphere.


The social media sites were buzzing with dispatches from the ships. I have picked my favorite links from Facebook and Twitter that help capture the places, people, and things I love about cruising. 

Making the list were updates from Holland American Line  about ms Prinsendam in Bordeaux, France and a baby sea lion who hitched a ride on a cruise guest’s kayak on  Lindblad Expeditions.

Seabourn and Silversea Cruises post about onboard enrichment programs that might entice some cruise prospects: Silversea Cruises posts about a wine cruise, and Seabourn debuts its 2013 World Cruise Distinguished Speakers series.

Topping off my list of favorites was mention of a Pajama Jam with accompanying photo of Spongebob, who I personally hope to meet on a NCL voyage one day (preferably before my 7-year-old graduates from middle school).

I just wrote about wine cruises

and Celebrity Cruises is a major-player in the food and wine themed cruise arena, that’s for sure. Another cruise line that is also making a splash is Silversea Cruises (see tweet summary in next section) announcing two voyages hosted by Lyn Farmer who is leading wine tastings and lectures on Silver Cloud.

Do you know a #cruise convert? Our blogger didn’t want to cruise–but he went to please his girl. Now he’s obsessed!


On our private island you can have it all….sun, shade, #COOLbreeze!


If your kid’s love Nickelodeon, they will LOVE dancing & eating with their fave characters at The Pajama Jam!
