How can you cruise for free?

From my Expedia Cruiseship Centers Website; "If you're a member of a team, organization, group or family that wants to take a holiday, why not suggest a cruise and save with the incredible group rates available. Take the initiative today and become a cruise tour conductor. Tour conductors work with CruiseShipCenters to make travel arrangements for large groups in exchange for a discounted rate. They're responsible for reserving a group of staterooms and recruiting enough people to occupy them. Whether for a corporate retreat, family reunion, team event or just plain fun, it's most efficient and cost effective to book everyone together and take advantage of the exceptional rates. As a tour conductor you can travel on the cruise of your dreams for free or for a significantly reduced price. You may also receive additional compensation for your efforts. The exact compensation will depend on the size of the group, duration of the trip, the destination and other factors. Tour conductor compensation may be kept as a reward for your effort, shared with members of your group to reduce everyone's cost (common with family reunions, or friends and family groups) or used as a prize giveaway. Most cruise lines, including Carnival Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruises, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean International and Princess Cruises, require that a minimum of eight staterooms and 16 guests are booked to constitute a group rate. Please refer to the individual cruise line, as each will have their own set of conditions. As a tour conductor, it's your job to round up the troops and to do a thorough job ensuring everyone is onboard. Once you've established a committed group, the rest is up to us. We'll do our best to find you the best sailings and negotiate the best deals. Groups are often eligible for special perks including hosted cocktail parties, stateroom upgrades and shipboard credits. If you've got a group in need of a vacation, contact us for further information and save on your cruise today." I keep thinking this would be a fun way to do a family reunion if I could convince them to do it. Hmmm... ;)

Travel pics... how many do you have?

I always think I take so many pics until I get home and realize I really have hardly any.  My 17 year old daughter is an amazing photographer and I think she took about 200 on our recent Caribbean cruise. :)  I have been thinking that my blog has been too much business and not enough fun lately, so I am going to see if I can find travel pics in my old photos.  You know, the ones before digital cameras? Wish me luck. Hopefully, I find some fun stories to share with you! 

River Cruising Check it out!

River cruising is a growing industry.  Why not?  Prices appear higher but actually include airfare, excursions, all on-board activities and even beer and wine.  No other form of cruising includes all of that at the base price.  Below is an article about river cruising from my Expedia Cruiseship Centers Website.



River Cruises

River Cruising Faq  |  Rivers Of Europe
Discover all the luxury and services River Cruising has to offer. Experience exceptional value through these complimentary amenities included on most river cruises:
  • Experienced guides will lead daily, enriching shore excursions
  • All meals including complimentary wine, beer, sodas with lunch and dinner
  • Bottled water, specialty coffees and teas
Looking for an alternative to contemporary ocean cruising? Just like traditional ocean cruising, river cruises are an ideal way to visit several countries in a short time to discover the heart of a destination.
River cruises ply the waterways of essentially every continent including the world's three largest rivers: the Amazon, Nile, and Yangtze.
From its beginnings in the mountains of Qinghai Province, the Yangtze flows to Shanghai on the East China Sea. The Yangtze is the third longest river in the world, flowing 3,690 miles - longer than the car trip on Interstate 80 from New York to Los Angeles.
The heart of this cruise runs through what is known as the Three Gorges with walls that rise as high as 1,000 feet above the riverbank. The site is also a cradle of ancient, Chinese civilization where travelers take in thousand-year-old temples, spectacular mountain vistas, and local village life.
Europe presents a variety of options for river cruising. From the rich history of the Rhine and the Danube to the untouched Douro that meanders through Madrid and Northern Portugal. Glide through colorful waterways and visit many of the gems often overlooked by other travelers. Enjoy the atmosphere of Amsterdam. Discover the wine country of France, the renaissance of northern Italy, the spectacular castles along Germany's Rhine River, the romantic Danube as it flows to Vienna and Budapest, and many other treasures of the Old World.
Russian river cruises are also very popular. They take you to the center of one of the most fascinating cultures in the world. Cruise from Moscow to St. Petersburg through picturesque waterways. Explore medieval towns, quaint villages, and the breathtaking scenery of a country locked behind the Iron Curtain for most of the 20th century.
Set sail on the river of your choice aboard any of these fabulous River Cruise Lines:
AmaWaterways features upscale cuisine, enriching ports of call, and an international feel.
