Traveler's Aid: Cruises for Non-Cruisers (7/19/02)

Real Audio Listen in RealAudio          help Need audio help?

There are two kinds of people in the world: those who love to cruise...and those who would rather spend 6 days at the bottom of an abandoned well. Why the reluctance? Well, non-cruisers sometimes have the wrong idea about cruising; they think they'll be marooned on a giant ship with only shuffleboard and glitzy lounge acts to occupy their time. But not all cruises are like that.

There are cruises even a non-cruiser could love -- really. Consider: a lovely cruise down the Mississippi River; or a 2-week Mediterranean adventure aboard a 100-passenger sailing ship; or a barge tour through Loch Ness territory in Scotland; or, maybe, a Star Trek-theme cruise -- OK, nix the Star Trek idea. With hundreds of theme cruises now available, there's bound to be one that sparks your interest.

To find out more about cruises for the cruise-phobic, we talk with cruise diva Linda Coffman. She's the mind behind www.cruisediva.com, a comprehensive cruise information site.
