5 Reasons to Book Your Cruise Now

Never cruised before? Now's the perfect time to catch the wave!

Been there and done all that at all inclusive resorts? What about a cruise? There's so much about cruising Cruise, Baby, CruiseCruise, Baby, Cruisethat makes me want to go again and again and again.

Need convincing? Have a look at my top 5 reasons for cruising!



  1. Variety: Whether you want to party all night long (Carnival) or enjoy the ambience (Holland America) there's a cruise line just for you. Got kids? Disney will keep 'em busy so you can keep busy too. Want to spa your way across the Ocean? Costa's got you covered.
  2. Commitment to Safety: Bar none, cruise lines make safety and security a priority at all times. Don't even think of missing muster call the first night at your appointed lifeboat station. Sure there are accidents, but their overall safety track record outdoes resorts hands down.
  3. Itineraries: Instead of trying to fit your vacation dreams into what one resort can offer, a cruise delivers something unique at every port. Whether you're a shore excursion junkie or a pool side lounger, pick the cruise line that best suits what you like to do.
  4. High Satisfaction Rates: From dining to after-dinner entertainment, cruise lines continue to improve how and what they deliver to their guests. An every growing list of splashy new ships that continue to ramp up the competition leave you reaping the rewards.
  5. Follow the Sun: Regardless of what time of year you want to travel, there's a cruise line going somewhere exciting. Summer Caribbean - you'll be shocked at the choice. Mediterranean year round? You bet.

  • On 5 Nudist Resorts that Will Blow Your Mind, John Ruze said "Hi Julia, There is a brand new, very popular nudist resort you should think about reporting on in your next article about naturism. It is the New Terra Cotta Clothing Optional Resort and Spa in sunny Palm Springs, California.. The original Terra Cotta Inn was a fantastic nude resort. Repeat guests from around the world stayed there. TCI was sold in Nov 2015 and greatly missed. Well, this July 2017, it was revived at a new location in Palm Springs. The site is HotelTerraCotta.com. Guests are super happy. It's perfect for couples and girlfriend getaways. And Tom and Mary Clare from the original Terra Cotta Inn work with us, so it has the same relaxing, fun feel. "
  • On The Best Naturist Resorts in Ontario, Dennis Wilson said "Love the freedom feeling going nude . 1st time ever was at freedom fields ranch near Tamworth On,Hector & Eyvon are super hosts ,hope to visit this summer but want to learn of more places to visit."
  • On An Open Letter to Hotels Everywhere, Lynn said "I agree on the night light thing. Since hotels have none, I end up keeping the bathroom light on all night with the door ajar. Windows. I understand in the litigious US of A, hotels need to prevent folks from throwing themselves out the windows (or else the hotel could be sued?!!). Ok, fine. But for those of us who dislike A/C and only use it when absolutely necessary, can't we still have the option for some FRESH AIR? There ARE ways to allow windows to open up only so much, while at the same time preventing an entire body from throwing itself out the window. Bedskirts. Am I the only one who gets the skeevies when I see hotel beds with bedskirts that hit the floor? I always had images of food crumbs, bugs, and god only knows what...as being hidden behind that bedskirt. I'd much rather a bedskirt that's at least 2" above the (usually carpetted) floor. Towels. Can't we get nicer towels that don't feel like cardboard? Carpetting. Am I the only one who never walks barefoot in a hotel room ...esp when there's carpet? Blech. I'm sure those things are very rarely cleaned. "
