Why Cruising is the Best Vacation

Why cruising is the best vacation for everyone!
Cruising is the best vacation!
My husband, Greg, loves planning cruises.  We have been going on cruises regularly for the last 5 years.  He has become quite the cruise expert.  When anyone has questions about going on a cruise or finding airfare they always contact him!  I've decided to share his travel tips in a series of posts on my blog so when people ask those FAQs I can direct them here.  I hope it will be helpful to you and if you have a question you can email me karenbellessapetersen@gmail.com.  Then, I'll ask him to answer your question in an upcoming article! Bon Voyage!
