Cruise Ship Lovers Meet Up adds a bonus

 

Cruises can earn  money by writing

Cruisers can earn money by writing

 The Sep 23 Cruise Ship Lovers MeetUp will not only feature a popular speaker, Madlen Saddik (San Francisco based cruises) but we will also have a drawing for Gordon Burgett’s seminal book, “Travel Writers Guide.”

Why not make some extra money describing your cruises to others?  Travel writers get placement in a variety of media – from Sunday inserts to feature articles in national magazines. This book will tell you how to sell your articles BEFORE you travel. Learn how to convert your one idea into many articles.

I took a few courses from Mr Burgett. he is a spark plug of ideas. Very enthusiastic and down to earth with REAL practical advise. this book is a FREEBIE to one lucky attendee.

RSVP now to ensure a seat. See our MEETUP page for details. Our meeting room is a nice, quiet place to network. If you have info to share, let us hear it! Find singles who want a cruise partner, go with a group or alone.

The Costa Concordia has risen!

After a year and a half sitting on its side, a multi-national team of engineers rigged up a cradle to upright the ship. Two bodies are still inside plus all the waste and toilet overflows. Yuck. Concordia is the 300 yard long monster that Captain Francesco Schettino, drove into a rock off the Italian island of Giglio in January last year. 32 people died . Four of the crew have been found guilty and the Captain is awaiting trial. A new 3,700–passenger mega-ship is being built to replace it. Read the background.

Here’s how they floated it….it’s going to salvage next. Click to enlarge.
