Episode #149 - Charting the Course with Cruise Director Matt O!



Welcome to episode #149!

We have a special show for you today! 

Cruise Director, Matt O from the Royal Princess shares with us his stories and insights on what it takes to help passengers have the best cruise ever.

His ability and talent to connect with guests is evident when you look upon them and see their smiling faces and are laughing with him be it at the sail away party, line dancing in the Piazza, or the various trivia events and Princess Theater production shows. 

We had a blast interviewing Matt O and look forward to seeing him again soon.

Also on this show, we share about the refresh and relaunch of Seawind digital magazine, the Carnival Panorama's christening and media event, and upcoming shows about the Royal Princess and Carnival Panorama.

Thank you!

Episode #148 - Mini Episode Aboard The Royal Princess!



Welcome to episode #148!

On this new "mini episode", recorded live aboard the Royal Princess,  we share some of the highlights of our cruise to the Mexican Riviera and what is to come on future shows. 

Even though Scott and I were very busy recording interviews, taking photos and video, excursion tours and more, we still had an amazing time and relaxing cruise. The Royal Princess is truly a gem of ship!

This episode is just a taste of what's to come and we can't wait to share our stories and experiences about the beautiful Royal Princess!

Finally, we want to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of American listeners. We take the time to reflect upon the great blessings on our families and especially appreciate you, our cruise family who listens, shares and supports our show. 

Thank you!

Episode #144 - Cruising Back In Time: The Queen Mary and Port Disney Sea Long Beach Project



Welcome to episode #144!

How in the world did The Walt Disney Company come into possession of the famous cruise liner, the Queen Mary, Howard Hughes Spruce Goose airplane and over 200 acres of surrounding land at the port of Long Beach, California? Did you know that for many years they operated the Queen Mary and had plans to build a theme park, hotels, restaurants, a marina, a cruise ship terminal and even a monorail and more? 

Well, we are going to "cruise back in time" with Disney historian and author, Jim Korkis to tell us this fascinating and detailed story.  This was a monumental and amazing project that Disney wanted to construct. It would have been the most incredible Disney project ever and Jim has all the unbelievable information and why it was ultimately abandoned. 

Jim is author of over 30 books and has worked for The Walt Disney Company in many different and interesting capacities. If you are interested in Disney history and what goes on behind the scenes, Jim definitely always has a wonderful story to share. 

You can find Jim's books on Amazon.com 
You can also find his books at ThemeParkPress.com
Jim also writes a column for MousePlanet.com too!

Enjoy the show!
