Welcome to your sailing! The list of your fellow cruisers is below.

You can post to tell others that the URL is: https://is.gd/crfels

You should read INNOCENTS ABROAD because it's the best travel book ever:
  • it's all about cruising.
  • it's about the very first cruise out of America
  • it's hilarious.
  • it's amazing how much it sounds like a modern-day cruise.
  • it's still a great travel guide and one of the most popular travel books.
  • the illustrations are great (you want all the illustrations!), and this is the only fully illustrated edition.
  • this edition is specially expanded for cruisers, with extended information about the cruise ship and photos.

    You'll love it. Here's how to get it:

Bob & Teresa
Cruise critic username: frbob; tjcox9
From: Greer, SC
Excursions: Mostly private tours
Number of cruises: 48 and counting
Age: Old enough to know better
Email: [click to send email]
About: Picture taken in May, 2010 on Dyea Dave tour from Skagway to Carcross in the Yukon Territory. Great excursion!
We take private tours because we find them to be generally more comprehensive and flexible than ship's tours, can deal with our time constraints and end up being a whole lot less expensive. We've had some terrific private tours all over the world and have yet to miss the ship's departure. This takes some planning on our part but it's worth the effort. We love great scenery, wildlife and good local foods.
