In a week, I’m sailing to the Western Caribbean. This is my first trip to the Caribbean and my first Princess Cruise, with exotic ports of call including the Grand Cayman Island, Honduras, Cozumel, Mexico and the Bahamas. What a Trip!
Along with several other tweeting travel writers, I was invited by Princess Cruises to take a hosted trip and share my experiences as part of a first-ever “Twitter Press Trip.”
Check back here for some videos and posts along the way. You can follow along on my discoveries via the #FollowMeAtSea hashtag I’ll use on Twitter.
I’ll share details from my Aroma Stone Therapy massage to shore excursions in each location including swimming with sting rays and a dolphin encounter at Anthony’s Key Resort & Tabyana Beach. I’ll be horseback riding at Punta Sur State Refuge in Cozumel, Mexico and snorkeling at Princess Cays in the Bahamas.
Truth in travel
One of the reason I like Twitter; immediate feedback or in some cases, fallout. There’s been a lot of tweeting about “Truth in Travel.” On Twitter the hashtag is #twethics. As I mentioned above, this is a hosted trip, yet I will do my best to present an honest take on our cruise.
I also hope to learn about Princess Cruises’ efforts on keeping green while sailing the big blue.
