Victory I Cruise: Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Honors Great Musicians

  ABOARD THE VICTORY I: Several teens sitting in the audience began to chuckle when the film narrator said, “Imagine there was a time in America when there was no rock and roll.” For these youngsters, there never was such a time. Rock and roll has always been a part of their lives. So the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum must have been a real eye opener for them. After the short film ended, …

I will warn you that it is best not to look at the photos if you are the slightest bit …

How to Explore a Port Destination on Your Own

  “If it’s Tuesday, this must be Belgium.” The title of this 1969 movie might have a familiar ring if you are on a cruise stopping at multiple ports or islands. Many travelers walk off the ship, stroll along the main street, stop in a few jewelry stores, have lunch at an overpriced restaurant with indifferent service and head back to the ship. Over dinner, they remark: “All these islands are the same.” How can you make …

Victory I Cruise: Boarding Ship for Three-night Great Lakes adventure

  ABOARD M/V VICTORY I – Entering a ship stateroom that will be my cruise home is always exciting. When I opened the door for stateroom 312 aboard the Victory I, it reminded me of the old John Denver song about grandma’s featherbed. In that tune, John Denver crooned about his favorite childhood memories of the gigantic featherbed that was “soft as a downy chick.” That’s sure what my cruise bed looked like.

Heavyweights of the Seas

  I normally arrive a day early for cruise departures, but have made an exception for a cruise out of the Port of Miami. I came three days early this time in order to photograph some representative heavyweights of cruising, megaships of MSC, Norwegian, Royal Caribbean, and Carnival that are currently in port. All are overwhelmingly huge and seeing most of the attractions onboard would require at least a four-day cruise on each. I only have a …
