Shari Wallack President of Buy the Sea shares reviews, news and information about cruise ships for incentives and corporate meetings. Shari knows the formula of what you need to have a successful cruise.
A cruise experience offers the opportunity to explore several destinations in one exhilarating voyage.
Most people I know have a list of destinations they would like to visit. For decades - Vietnam was in my bucket and I finally planned the trip! A cruise on the Mekong River seemed apropos – and in addition to Vietnam, I would experience Cambodia as a bonus

Oh Ship! Baby you’re doing just fine! As with a resort revisit, I find it is important to have a look at cruise ships many years after their debut.
