Meet your Cruise Buddies!

2011-11-04 - Princess - Grand

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:
