Click Here To Play Video Poker For Free! 

Welcome to episode #161!

It's time for part two of Tommy's Western Caribbean cruise on the Sky Princess. 

This time we discuss the live entertainment and shows onboard this beautiful ship.

Princess Cruises develop unique, one of a kind shows, exclusively for the Sky Princess! Combined with the beautiful Princess Theater, equipped with state of the art audio, video and lighting technology, each show is a feast for the eyes and ears.

With superior performers, stunning costuming, and staging as well, puts on a show like no other. We were so impressed, we would rebook a cruise on the Sky Princess to see Rock Opera, 5SKIES and Inspired Silliness again. They were all fantastic!

Do you like BBQ? We also got to try Planks BBQ for the first time. What a fantastic treat! Huge portions, tasty flavors and desserts to die for. Such a great value and excellent service too. 

This and more thoughts about the Sky Princess we share on this new episode...we hope you enjoy the show!

Keep On Cruising!

Episode #160 - Navigating The Future Way of Cruising with Emma Cruises








Welcome to episode #160!

We are so happy to have on our show another great interview for you.

YouTube Video Cruise Personality, Emma from "Cruising Isn't Just For Old People" shares with us her interesting research findings about how cruising might be changing due to COVID-19. In fact, she has a few extra things she shared on our show that was not in her video. 

See Emma's video below!



We all know that the cruise industry is now in uncharted territory and we can expect lots of new requirements to cruises, ongoing health testings, cleaning procedures, social distancing  practices, seating arrangements, food handling and more. 


As we navigate our way through these new practices, we wonder if this our "new normal" or are these going to be temporary? Will a vaccine revert us back to the times we loved and enjoyed? 

What are your thoughts? What kind of changes do you expect? Let us know! 

Be sure to follow Emma here:


We hope you enjoy the show!

Episode #156 - Reflect, Readjust and Rebook!



Welcome to episode #156!

This is a different kind of show today.

Like you, we are still taking in all of this. The Coronavirus has hit the cruise and travel industry hard, bringing it to a standstill, and affecting millions of people around the world. 

It is all quite unprecedented and so much has happen and so quickly, the last few days we wanted to share with you the latest cruise and travel news. 

We also want to share how this has impacted us personally and our outlook on all of this. 

Finally, we want to encourage you. Look towards the future and rebook your cancelled cruises, book new cruises, and keep dreaming of your future adventures. 

This is not the end of cruising, rather, this is just a time of readjustment so that our communities and our world returns back to health. 

Keep On Cruising!
