The cruise lines have been busy since my last Cruise Biz Buzz update.

From the ships….

Oceania Cruises, who I have been watching online, is doing a great job using social media (mostly Facebook) for updating photo albums for fans to enjoy.

Seabourn is doing a great job mixing it up: they frequently retweet links from followers as well as posting their own cruise line news.
