Last year Princess Cruises rolled out their first blog, “50 Essential Experiences, The Travel Bucket List” in which Princess destination experts and readers shared their Essential Travel Experience of the Week (Cruise Diva's is here, The Hidden Value of Travel: Amsterdam, The Netherlands). Inspired by the success of that year-long themed blog, Princess has launched a new one for 2012 entitled “Inspired to Cruise: A Year of Reasons to Get Away From the Everyday.” Fifty-two passenger stories relating what compelled them to take a cruise vacation will be revealed throughout the year.
The blog will explore the myriad celebrations, accomplishments, family milestones, and other inspired reasons to take a cruise, and each week another passenger will tell their story. The posts will chronicle stories from a diverse group of contributors–from long-time cruisers to those who set sail for the first time. Readers will find that some events go as planned, while others do not, and that many cruisers have found that unforgettable surprises make the best stories of all.
Also featured on the Inspired to Cruise blog each week will be a short video called an “Escape Inspiration.” These 30-second onboard moments will be introduced by a Princess crew member who will explain why the scene has meaning for them. The first video, introduced by Grand Princess Captain Anthony Herriott, features the mesmerizing wake view off the ship’s fantail.
If you have an inspiring story, share it in 500-1,000 words at Inspired To Cruise.
