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?

Here’s what people are saying about the CruiseTipsTV Unplugged Podcast
- Made me a cruise expertMarch 22, 2023 by MK OKAYY from United States
I have fallen in love with cruising, and Cruise Tips TV has become a regular part of my life now. Cruising is wonderful, but I do think there is a learning gap for people used to land vacations. My first cruise, I made all the mistakes. Second cruise, overcompensated and made all new mistakes. Then, I found Cruise Tips TV and it improved my cruising experience ten-fold. Now, I always have a cruise booked that I’m looking forward to. I follow Sherri and fam to keep up to date and to keep my excitement alive for my next sail. My partner and I are planning our first Alaska cruise with Princess this May. Truly, I would never have tried an Alaska cruise without Cruise Tips TV’s vlogs, videos, and podcasts about cruising the last frontier. I’m big on knowing what to expect, and they have made me feel very prepared for what I can predict, and ready to embrace surprises I can’t. My partner and I are planning to have a packing date night a couple weeks prior to our cruise. I’ll have packing cubes, the Alaska packing list, and cruise-inspired cocktails handy. And I’ll have the podcast playing in the background of course. Thanks so much for all your work and content.
