Help Is Here

When I first contemplated cruising more than 20 years ago, I was extremely confused by all of the options. There were small ships, large ships, sailing ships, trans-Atlantic liners, tiny staterooms, spacious suites, all-inclusive vs. non all-inclusive – and so many places to visit on a variety of itineraries. What to do? And that was just ocean cruising. Now, there’s river cruising and expedition cruising complicating the mix even more. – Ralph Grizzle
