Here’s what people are saying about the CruiseTipsTV Unplugged Podcast
- A very pleasant listenJune 8, 2021 by We5freaks from United States
I’m booking a Royal Caribbean cruise in February 2022 on the Oasis of the Seas. I was exited and started searching for a cruise podcast to listen to (along with some YouTube videos to watch). Fortunately, this was the first one I found during my search. Then I chose an episode to play. I found the voices to be very pleasant and the information to be very informative. This is a high recommend listen!
- Quality info with a positive attitudeJune 1, 2021 by ragazza from United States
I’ve watched CTTV on YouTube and listened to this podcast for a few years, and the commitment to provide help and information to the cruising community is admirable. In these times, it’s nice to have friendly voices like theirs sharing feelings, stories, and tips about a shared and missed pastime. Thank you for your honesty and integrity in the latest ep (111), CCTV fam!
