This weekend in Indiana will be nuts – it will hit nearly 50* and be more spring like than what is normally the nastiest time of the year. I will not be back onboard a ship for a while but with temps like this I will not miss it. Speaking of missing (or not) missing ships:

As a Frequent Floater I like to NOT impact my budget taking many cruise vacations. How do I do this? The best way is using points to offset not just the cruise but the air and hotels along the way. Take a look at how we do it.

Speaking of not missing a cruise and that would be my last (and only ever) MSC cruise. Embarkation day set the tone of what would be the worst cruise of my life. I don’t get why anyone would get onboard an MSC ship.

Next up we talk specialty restaurants and this time specifically HAL or Holland America specialties. Are they worth it? Is the food worth the upcharge or are you better off just sticking with main dining room offers? We dig in.

ThatGuy (onboard) who know a thing or two about the workings of cruise ships shares a great post regarding the inner workings of feeding thousands of hungry guests sometimes on very long voyages. And yes they sometimes do run out of (some) food!

Last up Chris covers two boosted card offers. If you are going to start your points portfolio and work to cruise for free you need to go for cards when increased offers are in play because many times you can only get a new card bonus once in your life!

Frequent Floaters is now 13 months old! Readership was up 10% YOY for January and I guess that tells me what I needed to know, that is, the blog is growing. Thanks for reading and hope to see you on a ship one day! – René
