It’s been a year since the cruise restart. Let’s take a look back.
In this episode we take a look back at the year as we celebrate one full year of the cruise line’s restart and return to service.
Just one year ago, we were standing by as the world resumed cruising again. In 2020 alone 576,000 cruise jobs had been lost, and it was time to get back to cruising!
Now, one year later, Shipmate app is reporting that 91.4% of cruisers in their community are planning to cruise in the upcoming year.
Here is an outline of what I’ll cover in this podcast.
What have we learned?
- How we feel about cruise travel now

What has changed?

Where are we now?

Here’s what people are saying about the CruiseTipsTV Unplugged Podcast
- Love this podcast - so many tips!November 8, 2023 by Berrmic from United States
I’ve listened to many cruise related podcasts and this is the best by far. So many wonderful tips! I’ve become a carry-on only traveler because of CTTV and love being able to avoid the long walk to retrieve my luggage. I took the cruise line personality quiz on the CTTV website and we absolutely loved our first Holland America cruise. Much better fit than our previous cruises. I am always going back to previous episodes to pick up tips and advice I may have missed. Thank you CTTV!

I started listening to the podcast about a month ago. They are so helpful for anyone who is taking a cruise, first or 50th. I’m going on my second cruise soon and just from listening I booked another! Thanks so much for giving me so many tips for my next cruise.
