Cruise Radio

Ryan and Lauren just returned from an eight night Southern Caribbean cruise on Carnival Sunshine from Port Canaveral, Florida. They give us their thoughts of the ship, what they thought of the dining, the itinerary, and overall layout of Carnival Sunshine. Turns out you shouldn't believe everything you read in the online reviews.

Sherry Kennedy drops by to tell us five things we need to know about Carnival Cruise Line. One takeaway I got is that Carnival Cruise Line has the largest inside staterooms at sea.

We caught up with former Tonight Show host and comedian Jay Leno, before he performed on a Carnival cruise ship in Cozumel, Mexico. Jay Leno gives me his thoughts on the ship, what he thinks of cruising, cars and some stories from the road. 

Matt Mitcham is the cruise director on Carnival Vista. We caught up with him on our sailing to find out a little about his background, how Carnival Vista has evolved over the past year, and what the partnership with Spike TV's Lip Sync Battle was like. Also, he preps us with dances for your next sailing.

On this week's bonus episode, we sit down and have a conversation with former cruise line executive, Art Sbarksky. I first met Art on Norwegian Epic back in 2010, and we've seen each other all around the world since. Since retiring from the cruise industry, Art writes and reviews cruise ship. At last count, he has sailed 119 cruises.

Art and I talk about:
 
The value of cruising 
His tenure at Crystal Cruises, Celebrity Cruises, and Norwegian Cruise Line 
Freestyle cruising 
Cruise ships in Alaska
Norwegian Bliss in Alaska 
Lifeguards on cruise ships
