I am back home this weekend after such a great weekend last week at the Chicago Seminars (the Delta hotel one). While I was a speaker I again, from fellow Frequent Floaters, picked up enough tips to 10x pay for the cost of the gas for my visit. Gosh I love learning from others and some I may share here over time. But first a look back at last week:

ThatGuy (onboard) has yet another great post of what you should and should not ever say to your cruise ship crew. I love getting the perspective from someone who has worked onboard for decades.

With all the insanity going on around the world oil prices are steadily rising and it is my guess if they break $100 and stick we will soon start to see fuel fees added to our cruises. See why I think this time they will impose them.

Michael won a bid on his Celebrity cruise for a massive suite. It looks great, but he has some warnings for you if you play the upgrade game with your cruise line.

MJ is back this week covering the changes to the Royal Caribbean Diamond lounge program. I wish NCL had a special lounge only for Diamonds and Ambassadors!

Lastly there is a Cunard offer that could result in a large pile of Amex MR points. These points are some of the most valuable in the travel space and if you are not earning them you are really missing the boat!

Enjoy your fall weekend everyone and I am starting to get giddy with a bunch of cruises on tap over the winter as well as a number of other fun stops to get away from the cold. Are you booked up yet for winter? – René
