This is such good news in a time when the cruise industry NEEDS good news. Carnival Cruise Lines will be adding two new ships to their fleet to set sail by 2023. I spent a few minutes chatting with my friend Vance Gulliksen to discuss the state of the cruise industry in a post-pandemic world. You can listen to the podcast, or read the transcript below. You can watch the TV episode Vance references of Beyond Your Backyard, below.
Erik: Vance, it's always good to talk to you, my friend and I haven't seen you in a while, which kind of, you know, breaks my heart a little bit.
Vance: Same here. You know, it's been a long, uh, 15, 16 months, but, uh, we're looking forward to, uh, getting back on the water soon
I am on a mission to get you traveling more often. As the host of the Emmy award- winning, nationally syndicated television television for PBS and the Create channel, "Beyond Your Backyard," I travel (on average) 25 weeks per year. I am very grateful for the opportunity to meet cool people, experience new places, eat delicious food and work with the best production crew in the world. Hopefully, through this blog, you will join me on my travels and be reminded just how exciting it is to be alive!
