    Episode #158 - Treated Like Royalty: Matt Hochberg of the Royal Caribbean Blog

    Welcome to episode #158!

    On this new episode, we welcome back our very special friend Matt Hochberg from the Royal Caribbean blog. He is one of the most informed cruisers who lives and breathes Royal Caribbean cruise ships. 
     
    We have brought him back on to the show to give us the inside scoop on what Royal Caribbean is doing during this time of pause from cruising. Matt also shares about his very last cruise to Coco Cay's new private beach and cabana resort that just recently opened. It sounds amazing. I think we need to book a Royal Caribbean cruise very soon!
     
    If you love cruising on Royal Caribbean, we highly recommend you visit his blog that has timely updates, forum boards, videos, podcasts and more.

    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!

    Episode #155 - Taking Cruising to New Heights on the Sky Princess! - Part One

    Welcome to episode #155!
    Tommy and his wife Lena just got back from an amazing, two back to back Western Caribbean cruises first on the Sky Princess and then on the Regal Princess.

As Princess rolls out the last three Royal Class ships, we talk about the differences and some of the new features and services that we discovered onboard. It was so cool to walk around familiar corners and find new and refreshed ideas. 
    Of course, there is so much to talk about and share about the Sky Princess, we have to do two episodes. And if you have a question about the ship, please email or call our voice mail line at 424-272-1916 and we will answer your question on our next episode!

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!

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.

Not Informative

I’m 32:10 into the suite life episode and there has been about two actually pieces of information. There is a lot that could be covered but somehow they are not talking about suite perks or anything relating to suites. They are just talking about random stuff and some of it isn’t even correct. You do not have to buy a coffee package if you have the drink package and you do not get a free drink package with a suite.
