Default Great news story!! Cruising the Med

Last night my Newsreader found a great article about on Fox Business News about cruising the Med. The article pointed out the difference in itineraries preferred by Europeans compared to Americans. Great article and I thought the business folks did a great job getting the cruise facts correct. Only after reading it did I discover that it was written by our own Paul Motter. Cool.

Great one Paul!

I read it and it's another good piece of writing by Paul Motter.

Paul is very well informed and certainly knows the cuise industry.

It is a good article and points out the differences between cruise itineraries that are designed for Europeans and those designed for the U.S. market.

Paul has a number of excellent articles here and on Fox Business.

Take care,
Mike

Great Article Paul!

Personally, the European itinerary sounded better to me then the American one.
