Setting sail on your first cruise soon? Welcome to the blog! I’m a cruise enthusiast, and I’m glad you’re search for tips to maximize your cruise vacation adventure has brought you here. I have quite a bit of cruising content here, and working on better organizing it to make it more useful for you. Today, we’ll focus on information available for first-time cruisers. I’ve added a menu button to the MJ on Travel homepage entitled “Cruising for Beginners.”
