The concept behind 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 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. is different from most other cruise magazines.


To ensure you don’t miss any new articles, please visit our social media sites, via the links at the bottom of each page, where new issues are announced.


I look forward to sharing our travels with you. Thank you for your readership.
