I've just returned to my hotel after attending Carnival Corporations dinner at Joe's Stone Crab.
But first, let me back up to lunch. Lunch today was at the Van Dyke Cafe on Lincoln Rd. as the guest of Norway based Hurtigruten Line. In attendance there were representatives of the cruise line, norwegian travel partners and press.
I had the pleasure of lunching with Rolf Logan, the Sales Director for Hurtigruten, based in the U.S. Certainly this is not a commonly known cruise line in North America, but after sharing lunch with Rolf today, and listening to his exciting and infectious stories, combined with looking at the pictures in the brochures they supplied, I was ready to pack my bags and jump onboard.
How does a cruise to chase the Aurora Borealis sound, through the Norwegian Fjords and on to the Arctic? AMAZING! When I return from Seatrade I'm going to get some more information together to pass on about this cruise line, and it's adventure and explorer sailings.
