Cruise West invited guests to become bloggers on each of the 24 voyages associated with the world voyage. Encouraged by a free camera and Internet time, the line has had a good response from willing guests. Follow the journey online or book one of the voyages and join in the adventure. Blog submissions will also be posted to the line’s Facebook page where consumers and travel agents are encouraged to become a fan, and Twitter via the hash tag #VOGE.
Sample Blog submission from a visit to Langkawi Island, Malaysia -- “Today we cruised up the Kelim River to visit a fish farm where we walked among the floating ‘ponds’ to see various species of the fish they raised and then we were treated to a demonstration of the spitting fish, a wild fish from the river. The fish spits at its prey, causing the prey to fall in the water and its eventual demise. Very amazing.”
Blogs from around the world in the coming months may include “TISWLOOTW” (Today I saw whales leaping out of the water), or “ICBTSTCOB” (I can’t believe the spectacular temple complex of Borobudur), or “TFISGIMNL” (The food is so good I may never leave)!
