An Unconventional Guide to Paying for College

Money for College Project Roundup: Leaving for a Cruise Edition

Well, starting tomorrow its anchors away for my wife and I. We are heading out on our first ever cruise! We’ll be heading for 7 days around the Western Caribbean, and stopping in 4 different countries and territories. This Fall has been so busy that I have barely had a moment to sit back and breathe, so this vacation is much needed.

Since neither one of us have ever been on a cruise, so any advice all of your pro cruisers have would be welcome.

I do have some posts planned for next week, and as I will be gone for Thanksgiving, I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving as well!

As always, here are the best articles from the Money for College Project, around the web, and my fellow Yakezie friends. Enjoy!

Money for College Project

  1. Have a great time. My wife and I both agree that we’re not ‘cruisers’ so we have never been nor have any plans to go, but I know many people really enjoy the experience. Have a great trip. Thanks for the mention, as well 🙂

    • @Money beagle — Yeah, from what i have heard you either love it or hate it, lol. I’m banking on the fact that we will love it!

  2. I hope you have a great time. I’ve never been on a cruise before, but we recently drove over an 18 mile bridge in the middle of the ocean – it was beautiful being out there. I can’t imagine how beautiful it will be – I hope you write about your experiences!

    Thanks for linking to my article.

    By the way, I love the way you display links in your roundup! How did you set that up?

    • @Khaleef — That is awesome! I will definitely be recording my thoughts on the cruise as we go, and reporting back once I have had a chance to settle back in. Glad to give a mention anytime!

  3. Enjoy your cruise! I’m sure you’ll have a great time and have a chance to relax. 😉

    • @Little House — Thanks! I am very much looking forward to being disconnected, and relaxed for a week!

  4. We’ve been on two. The second one without kids. I liked the cruising times, relaxing. I liked the private dining rooms. I’m not into eating with a bunch of strangers, so we were able to get seating for two, but you have to ask.

    I liked a few of the excursions and some I didn’t. I would do my homework before blindly buying excursions. Have fun and make some memories!

    • @Dr. Dean – That is great advice. I was looking at the dining options last night actually, and it looks like a table for 2 is difficult to come by. Looks like I will really need to work hard to find one!

  5. Wow… that is my favourite way to travel… I’ve been on two and nothing beats a good cruise. Enjoy your time away… Thanks for the mention as well!

    • @Dr. Stock – I am really looking forward to room service and breakfast on a balcony overlooking the ocean. Sounds like a great way to start the day, and to recharge!

  6. Have a wonderful time! Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday.
    And thanks for the mention!
