    Episode #161 - Taking Cruising to New Heights on the Sky Princess - Part 2!

    Episode #161 - Taking Cruising to New Heights on the Sky Princess - Part 2!

    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

    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!

Entertaining

Good detailed information. Occasionally enjoyable narrative but could use a better vernacular. Scott might consider brushing off some of the fairy dust he’s covered in. His constant overexcited demeanor is often too much. He talks like he lives in a fantasy world like he’s never worked a day in his life and just cruises. The show is entertaining though overall.

samashsound ,

Great show!

Always entertaining and informative! These guys are funny but also have a passion and enthusiasm for cruising that you won’t hear anywhere else. If you are looking for a unique perspective on the industry, this is it!

TheDragonsSpine ,

Stuttering and interrupting

Lots of ums and the one guy is constantly interrupting the other guy, which is probably why all the ums as he loses his train of thought.
