Our top vote getter with the most views in the previous 30 days, first appeared on December 19, 2010. Our most read article covered the topic of what to expect when arriving at your cruise ship, and getting ready to board. (see the article here). There was also lots of information on getting ready prior to actually departing, along with information on the use of a checklist so not to miss or forget anything.
The Second Place vote grabber which similar to our first place view getter, first appeared on December 17, 2010 and talks about the ease and simplicity of Cruise Vacations from the Southern California Ports of Los Angeles and San Diego (see Blog post). Featured in this article was information on pending ship changes and relocations, along with some great ideas on ways to optimize the buying power of your cruise dollar. Suggestions included variations on how to be able to arrive at your travel destinations, and cruise port in a more relaxed and ready to experience the fullest vacation possible.
Our Next Favorite turned out to reveal “that words in a title can be other than what you first think” which was a comprehensive review of cruises that make their destinations in close proximity to Volcanos. Appearing on March 4th, mere days prior to the Big Island’s “Kilauea” returning to active status, I just couldn’t resist rewording to a “catchy title”. (View the Article here). Packed with lots of photos, videos, and links that it was the next best thing to actually being there for the eruption. Not to mention all of the descriptions and absolutely yummy information that covered just about anything you could want to know about volcanos situated in various spots of our world!
Next in total views, was a timely “event” article which appeared on March 11th, and was centered around the early morning events (at least here local time for me) regarding the terrible earth quake, and resulting tsunami activity which sparked watches all over the pacific rim area. I continued updating the post throughout the day, so there was much added information, as more became known. (Click here to see the article). This post is a jam-packed article full of photos, vids, and helpful informational links of the devastating events which took place as it was happening.
Our final “Top Vote Getter” (in fifth place) appeared on February 27th, just making it-into our previous 30 day results, and dealt with the topic of River Cruising. Just about anything you might want to know about River Cruises in here! River Cruising is actually the fastest growing segment of the cruise industry. There are so many differences to River Cruising as compared to Ocean going cruises. (Check out this video clip!!) Many folks liken River Cruising to Travel Touring, just being able to do it on a River Boat, without all of the packing and unpacking and coaching or training to all of the various cities and towns, as they are seemingly coming to you rather than you having to journey to them. (View Entire Article Here). Also many folks are surprised to find that it resembles more closely to a form of “all-inclusive cruising”, with so much more included in the cruise fare portion of your costs. But, check out the article for yourself, and become expert in River Cruising!
