We’ve taken cruises on ships of every size and style from mega liners to small luxury vessels and written about them in newspapers,magazines and on the web (most recently www.cruiseable.com) and here are a few good photos from our voyages:

While I hope you will continue reading the Savvyseafarer for all the cruise news, tips and ideas you can use, I write for another site which does that PLUS books and helps you plan your cruise down to the most finite details.
It’s cruiseable.com and you really need to go there before you plan that first or next cruise. The site has everything from articles on packing, preening, picking a ship, choosing destinations, budget tips, family cruises, LGBT cruises, millennial favorites and scores of readable reviews from a team of top writers/experts on the industry.
The sales feature spring and winter cruises to places such as the Caribbean, Mexico, Alaska, Panama Canal, Europe and Transatlantic voyages. Cruises depart between December 2014 and May 2015. More information about the cruise sale and pricing can be found at princess.com/sale.
Guests booking a mini-suite or suite will receive an onboard credit of $50 per person for six- to nine-day cruises, $100 per person for 10-11-day cruises or $200 per person for 12 days or longer.
All cruise prices are per person, based on double occupancy. The Suite and Balcony Bonus Sale runs from 12:01 a.m. PDT on July 22 through 11:59 p.m. PDT on August 19, 2014 and is available to residents of the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
Additional information about Princess Cruises is available through a professional travel agent, by calling 1-800-PRINCESS (1-800-774-6237), or by visiting the company’s website at princess.com.
The Savvy Seafarer does enjoy sailing in suite style with a private balcony so whenever a cruise lines offers a deal on such luxuries her ears perk up and her fingers hit the link to the website. The latest deal is from one of her favorite cruise lines, Princess—on which she sailed many times and seas—which is offering a Suite & Balcony Bonus Sale, from now through August 19, on select cruises. If you book a suite or mini-suite (both come with perks, the former obviously a few more and are SS-approved) you can score up to $400 free onboard spending money per stateroom (use it at the spa, for drinks, alternative dining venues or shore excursions). If you book an oceanview stateroom you get a free balcony upgrade (trust me you’ll love having it).
