  • Virgin Voyages Status Match Promotion Is Too Good To Pass Up

    We are HUGE fans of Virgin Voyages; they are the industry disruptor that is so far ahead in many ways that the legacy cruise lines simply don't understand why folks like myself are willing to spend more money for a more seamless, fun experience that is something different than just being "more luxury." Today, they have unveiled one of their best promotions yet - a status match that works not just with other cruise lines but also hotel and airline partners. For instance, for me as a Hilton Diamond and Mariott Bonvoy Platinum member, I can now gain access to perks including free specialty coffee, laundry service, etc.

However, one of the absolute best ways to experience North America's best wine regions is on a Coastal California cruise.  What we liked about sailing on Holland America Line's Koningsdam was that it created an immersive experience - on the ship, as well as in port as well.

  • Things You Could Say or Do to Get Kicked Off a Cruise

    Cruise ships are floating resorts where the staff can sometimes seem obsessive about making sure you have a great time and the word "no" is seldom heard. However, it is important to remember the rules. Cruise lines have strict guidelines about what you can do or say without getting kicked off of one of their cruises. While most of these rules and regulations for what you can't do on a cruise ship may seem obvious, others can seem absurd.
