One of our favorite cruise lines, UnCruise Adventures is gearing up for some amazing 2022 cruises including some of the most unique Hawaii, Alaska, and Sea of Cortez cruises offered by any cruise line. These Wave Season deals run through April 15 but right now through Feb. 15 they have some even deeper discounts on cruises this year and in 2023!

We got a chance to join Holland America Line on MS Zuiderdam as she prepared to welcome guests back after nearly 600 days being paused because of the pandemic. Based on our whirlwind tour and fantastic lunch at their legendarily good Pinnacle Grill, we're sure guests are going to have a fantastic time on their 10-day Sea of Cortez cruise that they departed on yesterday. 

Majestic Princess has officially returned to service with cruises from the Port of Los Angeles (San Pedro). We had the chance to view her from shore during her stop in San Diego today and based on feedback from guests we talked with, she's a great option for folks looking to explore Mexican Riviera, Coastal California, and Baja Mexico cruises this fall and winter before she returns north to Alaska again. During the ceremony to celebrate her maiden voyage from Los Angeles both Princess Cruises and the Port of Los Angeles highlighted the positive financial impact that cruising has had for Los Angeles and surrounding communities. The unsurprising highlight here is that each cruise ship visit infuses more than $1 million into the local economy.

We often get questions about watching sports events while on a cruise. The general answer to that is sure, most games are usually available in the sports bars found on many different ships and "Big Games" are often featured on the jumbo screen pool side. Now however, Princess Cruises has taken sports to the next level. Not only can you watch the games but you can bet on them too! 

When it comes to a luxury experience, simply having a smaller ship, better service, and exquisite food isn't always enough. Quite simply those things can all exist on many other ships sailing to Alaska. However, the opportunity to experience a voyage to ports that most other Alaska cruises wont, or simply can't is where the true luxury experience becomes evident. That's exactly what Seabourn Odyssey will be offering during her 2021 Alaska and British Columbia cruise season this year.
