The concept behind NauticalNotebook.com was simple – a friend suggested that I put
my cruise journals online. I was certainly not lacking for material, as I have been
keeping detailed, handwritten journals of our cruises for nearly a decade. While
onboard, I am likely to be found sitting on the promenade or in an interior public
room, journal and pen in hand, chronicling my thoughts as we travel.
From this was born a magazine dedicated to the enjoyment of travel by cruise ship
and ocean liner. Most of the content on NauticalNotebook.com is taken directly from
my journals. While journal entries on this site are taken verbatim from those pages,
I edit them for reviews and feature articles to provide a more reader-friendly experience.
NauticalNotebook.com is different from most other cruise magazines.
First, this site is not a business; that would be too much of a hassle.
Additionally, we are not a news site or blog, although I maintain these on other
Finally, as I have a deadline-driven, paying job in another industry, we do not have
a regular publication schedule.
