We’re cruise fans, and we’ve sailed on more than 40 cruises now. (Does that make us cruise connoisseurs?) We’ve cruised aboard everything from deluxe riverboats on the Chobe and Nile rivers in Africa to large family-friendly ships in Alaska to sleek sailing yachts in the Caribbean and French Polynesia. We’ve even sailed aboard a luxurious phinisi (traditional Indonesian sailing vessel), operating as a liveaboard dive boat.

Here are some of our cruising stories…
