Here are some links to sites that really helped us when we were planning our cruise. With so many cruise lines out there and so much to know, these sites gave a lot of help to the first time cruiser.

For those looking for a great group about the Carnival cruise line, the 100,000 strong group is an amazing resource and very friendly. Started and run by Chali, you ar always ensured a warm welcome. This is a great place for 1st-time cruisers to ask questions and seek information.

Another unofficial but extremely informative blog from Matt Hochberg, frequent travel and he has a very compelling personality, plenty of Facebook live and periscope events where you can ask him questions directly.

I came across this channel on youtube and immediately loved Sheri's smooth vocal tones and fun outlook on cruising, plenty of videos tips for newbies and the more experienced alike this is well worth a visit and some time watching the videos within.
