NOTE: The information below is second hand. I have no solid confirmation this is 100% true, however, I am working on getting confirmation and once I do I will pass it along to you. Over the weekend, I received some second hand news that Cunard will release full World Cruise information for 2012 on Friday, July 16, 2010. I must reiterate this is second hand news and not yet confirmed, however, I am making every effort to have this information confirmed so I can pass it along to you. If you haven't already done so, now is the time to... Continue reading

I was going back through some old posts on my 2011 blog and saw that I written that Cunard opened the ships for booking for World Cruise 2011 on July 1, 2009. So, logic would tell me that we should be looking in the same time-frame for 2012, although I do hope it is sooner. I am once again encouraging anyone who wants to book either the full world cruise or the Australia segment to sign up on the opt-in list. The travel agent in charge, Jackie Thresten, does not spam and only sends out updates about once per month... Continue reading

To quote Huey Lewis and The News... "New York, New York is it everything they say?" Well, yes, as a matter of fact it is - even in January. I received an email over the weekend asking me for recommendation in NY for a pre-world cruise (2012) hotel in Manhattan, and, the answer is that you have many choices. Of course, you'll have the hotels that Cunard blocks. My best educated guess is that Cunard will stick with past favorites such as the Waldorf Astroia and the Mandarin Oriental. But, if it were me coming into NYC I'd probably make... Continue reading

I was perusing some of the cruise message boards today, and, I was quickly reminded why I neve r bothered to partake in the idiocy that happens on those boards. I found several passenger reviews highly amusing like the the lawyer who claimed to be well-educated who was shocked that there was cultural and language differences between herself and the crew and staff of an MSC ship. Well duh! MSC is an Italian line did you think they were going to change everything to American style just for you? And of course if you enter the actual message boards on... Continue reading
