Now that September is at last here I am starting to count the days till my next cruise adventure. I have to admit I am almost giddy to try both a new cruise line (to me) as well as a new product. But more on that later – now the week that was:

Other than creating a viral video does this passenger who missed the boat really think that the captain will re-dock the ship so he and his girl can get on? Sorry dude not gonna happen. But funny video so thanks!

Hey “ThatGuy” is back after vacation on land and has a post everyone seemed to want to read this week when he shares the odd things we may never think about as guests onboard vs. the crew who are taking such great care of us.

Michael has a great post about the value of free night certs from travel cards to make the hotel part of your cruise vacation so much cheaper and often times a very nice experience. Take a look.

Do you travel with a decoy wallet? I don’t but I do carry a ultra-tiny one for when I go ashore. There was some interesting discussion this week if it is wise or not so to carry a decoy ashore.

Lastly Chris shared his thoughts of the value of the Amex Business Platinum card. Not only do I have the card but my wife holds one as well (hint: there is great value here)!

Have a great weekend everyone and let’s all hope this year’s hurricane season has little impact on the Caribbean so the winter cruise season (and the people living on the islands) can have a great winter season! – René
