A Sojourn to Saguenay, Oasis of the Seas Godmothers, Cindy’s Cruise on Celebrity’s Equinox, Marseilles & Notre Dame 
1.      Oasis of the Seas to Have Seven Godmothers - Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. Chairman and CEO Richard Fain said the 225,000-ton Oasis of the Seas will have seven godmothers, one for each of the neighborhoods on the world’s largest cruise ship.
2.      Cindy is visiting the French port city of Marseilles. “There we happened upon a local tourist trolley (7€ each) that carried us high up in the city to the lovely Basilica of Notre Dame where we could overlook the entire city. It turned out to be just what we needed…a look at the streets and shops of the city, as well as many of its historical monuments.”
3.      A Sojourn To Saguenay-It’s a 2.5-hour drive from Quebec City to the Saguenay region. We pointed our car toward La Baie, where we checked in to L’ Auberge des 21. Located on the shore of the Saguenay Fjord, the warm family inn also features fine regional (read: French) cuisine at a shockingly good restaurant for such a small inn.
4.      Featured Video: Not sure about tipping on your cruise? This video will help ou understand the guidelines.
5.      Interesting Opportunity to Make Commission on Your Web Purchases from Macys to Target to Starbucks and Barnes and Noble + 400 More Retailers - Not cruise-related, but we found new online shopping venture intriguing and thought we'd pass it along. There's a new internet venture called Blastoff which caught our attention because it was co-founded by Adam Smith, one of the key architects of Travelocity.
The concept is simple--you join, then shop online at the stores you usually buy from including Target and Best Buy. Because the stores save on advertising, you get paid money back on each purchase. If your friends sign up and shop, you get a small amount of money on their purchases too. We thought it was neat idea, and hope you'll check it out.:
6.      Princess debuts fully digital travel documents- The all-new electronic format will deliver more information about their cruise than ever before, arriving conveniently by email and right to their computer desktop from the time of booking and continuing through departure.
