Special Easter Episode: Staying Positive

CruiseTipsTV Unplugged Podcast New Episodes Wednesday

There are a lot of good things to keep us staying positive

We had planned on taking this week off, but decided to do a short rambling episode about us, and how we are staying positive in these challenging times. We hope you enjoy it. As always, you can email us your questions at podcast@cruisetipstv.com.

Yes, there’s been bad news

Staying positive with bad newsYeah, we started the week off with some news from Carnival, Princess and Holland America, and it wasn’t good news. All made announcements about extending the pause of their global ship operations. All announced more cancellations. There was good news too. Arnold Donald, CEO of Carnival said in an interview with CNBC, that despite the devastation caused by this virus, cruise bookings are strong for 2021. At times like these, we need to look for good news like this.

And for us personally…

Well, we need to look on the bright side too. We are struggling to be sure. Some of that may come out in this podcast, but we have so much to be thankful for, and that’s the real point of this special Easter podcast. We have a happy marriage and a loving family. We have a dedicated and supportive community that lifts us up, and makes us smile. For those, and so many more things we are grateful.

Here’s what some of you think about the podcast

  • No unplayed episodes!

    Your podcast was the first podcast I had ever listened to back in 2019 and I’ve been a faithful listener ever since. In fact, I find myself eagerly awaiting each new episode. I’ve even started over from the beginning a couple of times now and learn something new each time. Thank you for sharing your adventures with us!!

  • Pretty good
    June 22, 2024 by 123ABC*#$ from United States

    It’s a cruise podcast, so it automatically gets three stars. The hosts are nice and always positive Sometimes too positive? Borderline Pollyanna. A little salt with the sweet would make the show more palatable. Give us a little details on the “bad” with all the good. On this note, I’m concerned that since going pro, the show is starting to feel more like a commercial for the cruise industry. For instance, the recent Oceania YouTube post- that had the feel of a paid endorsement. I listen to these shows for honest reviews and experiences. So, I’m a bit saddened by this seemingly new direction.

  • Great info for new cruisers

    I found this podcast several months ago, in preparation for my first cruise. This show is fun and light while also being truthful and informative. I’ve learned so much from these podcasts and now I won’t feel like such a newbie when I step onto a cruise ship for the first time in a few months!
