When I set out my cruise plan for the year I only had 2 of these cruises booked! That being said my cruise planner for 2023 & 2024 is beyond packed with lots of great cruise adventures! I like to book thing’s far in advance (that is how you get the best deals). Of course my job as a travel agent is to try new places and new things that way I can tell YOU all about them. I have lots of plans for the blog in the new year and I hope you’ll like them too!
