I am the Managing Editor of Cruise Magazine and my blog The Cruise Expert on Facebook runs world-wide and in Cruise Line pages with a potential reach of several millions.

OUR EASY POLICY
ON FAMIL CRUISES:
We love Famils! However We understand it is not always possible to get Cruise Famils.
So, to make it easy and to make it easy for you, we are willing to pay an Editorial Fare for a good Famil. of 10 days or more in a Balcony stateroom. This gives us a chance to get to enjoy the ship and review all its facilities, as well as the ports of call on itineraries.
We give everyone who hosts us or helps us with a Cruise Famil. their very own Dedicated Pages, plus - and best of all - we run the stories in our other Magazines and Newspapers as well.
Let's talk: firstname.lastname@example.org or 0418447010

It joins hundreds of other nesting albatrosses on the steep slope that leads to a dramatic cliff edge on West Point Island, our first landing place in the Falklands.
