In Istanbul Ignites a Spirit of Adventure, I really like how Captain Kent of Princess Cruises‘ Star Princess relates his desire to be at sea and to travel to pop culture and his family’s history.  When he describes finally having the chance to visit Istanbul, the realization of his dream is palpable.   I’m happy to know that Captain Kent will have the opportunity to visit Istanbul once again when the Star Princess returns to the Mediterranean this summer!

When I read this post, I was instantly struck by the way Rob Roberts describes his travel experiences, from the perspective that we never know where life might take us.  I would be the first to attest to this!  Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and takes you on an amazing ride.  Enjoy!

My Grand Tour

Princess Cruises - Gondolas in Venice

Wow!  I must applaud the detail and the many pictures that bring this travel experience to life! 

I can also identify personally with the idea that as a result of the culture in which you are raised, a place you’ve never visited could be a big part of your life.  An experience like this not only gives you the opportunity to learn more about your roots, but to connect with, to see first-hand the people, places, and traditions you’ve likely spent all your life hearing about.

The Holy Land is an amazing destination to visit, especially on a Princess® cruise ship.  Enjoy!

A “Homecoming” in a Country of Contrasts

I loved reading this contributor’s story!  Life at sea isn’t for everyone, so I especially like the way he describes the progression of his life and career….growing up on a farm in Iowa, teaching scuba diving in the Caribbean, planning tours in Europe.  Also, the pictures are spectacular.  Enjoy!

What I really like about this particular post is that the author, Kristen Helgren, is the Rooms Department Manager at the Kenai Princess Wilderness Lodge in Alaska.  This tells me she brings to this the unique perspective of a land-based Princess Cruises employee who is used to living and working in pristine settings.  I especially like her casual, personable approach to describing her experience:
