Jason from PopularCruising.com joins us to tell us all about his experience on the inaugural cruise of the Disney's Pixar Themed Cruises on the Disney Wonder in California. We get an unexpected treat in the interview when we find out that Jason has dined at Remy's, the most expensive specialty restaurant at sea, and he reviews it for us. News features stories from the upcoming Norwegian Breakaway, upgrades to a newer Carnival ship, and a refurbishment of the Serenade of the Seas.
There was a lot of cruise news this week, and we cover it all in depth! Carnival discontinues a popular program as they add a controversial one. Royal Caribbean invites you to cruise with Barbie, to Barbados and possibly to the Ukraine. Disney finds success in Galveston. Protests in Venice and North Africa disrupt cruise itineraries.
This week we review a wide variety of cruise books including the Berlitz guide, Frommer's Cruises and Ports of Call, Fodor's Complete Guide to Caribbean Cruises, and Rick Steves' Mediterranean Cruise Ports. We also review autobiographies Cruise Confidential, Ship for Brains, and The Truth about Cruise Ships. The cruise magazines we review are Porthole Cruise Magazine and Cruise Travel Magazine. Our news features more talk of the all-inclusive drink package on Carnival and their new deck chair policy, plus the resolution of an old story from Princess and some Royal Caribbean controversy.
