  • Great for Cruise and Travel Lovers!

    I started listening to CruiseTipsTv Podcast last year while I was stuck at home missing travel. I believe I discovered it from listening to Cruise Radio, and it was recommended. I soon discovered their YouTube channel as well and find their videos entertaining and informative. I really appreciate how down to earth Sheri and her family are and that they give their honest feedback in a positive manner. This podcast makes my work day more fun as I listen at my desk. Highly recommend listening to this podcast if you love cruising and need to escape from the real world for a little while 🙂
