What to expect at Cruising Done Right

In case you haven't figured this out for yourself during the past three and a half years, we thought it might be a good time to enlighten you about what to expect, and what not to expect, when you click on cruisingdoneright.com, as you just have.

Expect to read something written with care, with a dedication to factual accuracy, clarity and devoid of typos (we had one yesterday, picked up by a reader).

Don't expect that this will be a source of breaking news about cruises. That's precisely what Cruise Critic in the U.S. and Phil Reimer in Canada (at portsandbows.com) do better than anybody.

Expect to find a a deal every day…a carefully-researched cruise bargain, five times a week.

Don't expect to find a photo essay of a ship — while we love to cruise we don't go on THAT many ships.

Expect to enjoy (hopefully) a story about cruising with personality, perhaps a little (subjective) humor and often a personal view — every cruiser has a story.

Don't expect stinging critiques of cruise lines, ships or people just for the sake of being a critic.

Expect that everything you read will be in good taste and that your comments will be published as long as they are in good taste and not just promoting whatever product or cause you are "selling."

Don't expect us to be experts. We are merely cruise passengers who research, read about and go on cruises as often as we can. Maybe you think that makes us experts…we think it makes us cruise writers.

Expect to read about cruise people from time to time. Because everybody has a story, and because cruise lines are always trumpeting that it's their people who make the difference, we think this is important and we spend hours on every cruise interviewing people who have a story, from the captain to the laundry room attendant.

Don't expect us to jump all over the latest cruise controversy. We'll do so once we determine it's important to do so.

Expect that we will be here, writing every Monday through Friday, as long as you demonstrate that you want us to be here.
