Colorful lounge chairs poolside on Holland America’s Eurodam is this week’s outtake from my book, ‘Cruising the World – From Gondolas to Megaships.’ Despite its arty appearance, empty deck chairs on a cruise ship seems to me to symbolize the unfortunate absence of cruises this cruising season. Looking forward to cruising again next year.

NOTE: Look for a holiday special discount price for ‘Cruising the World’ coming next month at The book has received excellent reviews and recently appeared on the cover of Publishers Weekly.
