    Very relatable host(s) who it’s easy to feel like you’re just sitting at a table with while they talk and banter enthusiastically about cruise stuff. Working hard for our attention, and I appreciate that.

    I started listening last year when I booked my very first cruise, which is a transatlantic this April with my mom! The info you share has been incredibly helpful! I love your bright personality and enthusiasm for cruising. I listen on my way to work in the mornings and get so excited about my own cruise! Thank you, and Mr CruiseTips, so much for this podcast!

    Going on my first ever cruise this summer to Alaska and trying to learn as much as possible. Really enjoy this podcast. Your voices are so easy to listen to, love the banter, and so much good information. My only wish is that you knew Celebrity because that’s who I’m cruising with. That aside, thank you.
