Nine in '14: Nine worldly events you can get to with a variety of cruises in 2014

One of the more interesting articles to cross our desktops this weekend was from FoxNews.com, which is not exactly known as an acknowledged source of cruise information. This article, by Andrea Rotondo, who appears to be a cruise expert for a network that most of us didn't know had one. It's entitled "9 major events you can attend via cruise ship in 2014" and it's an interesting read.

The events are from all over the world, and they're neatly arranged chronologically, from the Australian Open (tennis) in January to New Year'sAustralian OpenEve in Hong Kong. There is more variety in cruise lines — they're all different — than in events, eight of which are either sports events or parties.

Then again, aren't most "events" that you'd go to great lengths to see either sports events or parties?

The range of cruise lines goes from luxury brands like Silversea and Crystal MardiGrasand Windstar to some of the mainstream lines, such as Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian…all of which are noted in the same breath as "Mardis Gras" because they all have ships that regularly sail from New Orleans. One "miss" is linking the Monaco Grand Prix only to Star Clippers when Windstar has been taking ships to the GP for a couple of years, at least.

Taking a cruise to a country because a big event was being held there is not something we've ever done, but after reading Ms Rotondo's suggestions (www.foxnews.com), it's worth thinking of taking a flyer.

Or a cruise.
