Awesome views from Port Everglades cruise port

Up close and WOW. Seeing the ships leave from the North side of the inlet at Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port, was an awesome experience. The ships seem larger that life. I have been inside many a ship, but for some reason the viewpoint I had on Sunday January 27, 2013, took my breath away, dropped my jaw. All the people in the condos behind me get to see that every weekend and they seem to be as enthused as I was.

The condo dwellers would blow their fog horns, yell, clap and hang their country's flag out onto their balconies, as the big cruise ships would leave for their tropical Islands in the sun.
Wow, that was a long sentence.
...Anyway, I will be going back to Port Everglades inlet and getting better at this video taking thing.
I am also going to get all the information on each of the ships and pass that along to you right here.
don't forget to visit

Cruise season is in full swing. Full Steam Ahead.

Here in Florida, the cruises ships are leaving from every port, all 5 Florida cruise ports, (click here, to see the cruise ports of the world blog I wrote last year), in record numbers. I know why, first of all, it is getting cold up north in the good old USA and in Europe too. The South and Central Americans are coming simply to see all the action and shop, shop, shop, buy, buy, buy.

Not all visitors start their Florida vacations as cruisers, but while here, in South Florida, they might use a, 2 night cruise fill in, as a small part of their vacation. Even though most of the vacationers have their non cruise vacations planed by the time they get to Florida, they get caught up in the cruise frenzy and find a great fill in 2 night Bahamas cruise. (I hope, by now, you know we offer those cruises, so call any of our agents for your 2 night cruise. 954-969-0069).

So, do your part for the economy and, spend some of your hard earned money on the relaxation you need by shopping in the malls, and cruising the Caribbean. Bon Voyage, I will see you on the ship.

By the way, there are still a few steam ships cruising.

Ok, now that we got that out of the way.

What I mean is, now we can move on to bigger and brighter things. Get all that we need out of the lessons we learned and the travels we made and the hearts we healed.

Find new travels, New hearts to heal, and lessons to learn.

Look at me, I am learning about blogging and video posting and so much SEO stuff just to get  on Google and other search engines so our Partner Agents can give you the best service available in the business for 2 day cruises around the world..

My goal for 2013 is to go on 5, 2 day cruises and take about 30 of my readers with me. Remember though, I will need at least one other person to help me with that.

Another goal of mine is, to get training classes on sales and customer service, so when one of our clients calls  us for a mini getaway vacation, they feel like they are on vacation while speaking to one of our partner agents. I like that idea, a phone call, feeling like the start of a vacation.

Well, I'm out, see you at sea in 2013.
