My wife and I have had a simply miserable week after visiting the doctor this past Monday and both diagnosed with sinus infections after our shipboard cold we caught got worse since our return – not the way to end a cruise or the stress we faced starting the adventure as well. But more on that soon as for now the week that was on the blog:

Unless you live near a cruise port there is going to be an investment in your time and effort to drive or fly to the port city as well as hotel and other transportation costs. Due to this you really should consider back-to-back cruises to maximize your value. Take a look.

Viking cruises has now gone public. They have lots of river vessels as well as ocean ships. Now that they are publicly traded will they offer OBC or onboard credit if you are a shareholder like many other cruise lines do? Michael dives in.

Next up I break down why I think a cruise, any cruise, wins out hands down vs. staying at an all-inclusive resort. One reader took real issue in the comments and clearly disagrees with me. See what you think of my argument.

Sadly this week a crew member on NCL, who had just joined the ship the day before and was working his first ever contract with Norwegian, had a mental break and stabbed a number of people including a guest.

I love bonus point offers and Cunard has a large 50,000 point offer you will want to register for with your Amex cards before you book as it could be worth more than $750!

Lastly Chris this week is focusing on an IHG card offer that is ending soon. When you can fly free on points and stay free on points your cruise vacation is so much cheaper – right? Jump on this offer before it is gone!

Have a safe weekend everyone with all the wild weather about. Just north of where I live several spots in Michigan were hammered this week and I am happy we were AOK from this last round of storms! – René
