Say NO to the retirement home. There are people who live permanently on cruise ships - it could be cheaper and you get better service. When we did a few tours on the Aurora in 2017 we joined in Boston and there were guests who had been on for ages. We left to edit, rejoined that ship some 6...

We judge what is selling by our local Costco and it always makes our TV's look old. Maybe this Christmas ... maybe not. Let's go cruising again instead. Now everyone is on line, and...
You can go on a cruise and enjoy just what was in the ticket price, and why not, it is a great full-board holiday. You can still dine in the main restaurants, dress up and enjoy black tie nights and see the great acts all in your holiday cost. You may be able to, in some cases argue that...
