Bloomington, MN – April 18th, 2012 – Cruising Authority, the Internet’s leading cruise-related talk show, and CruisesOnly, America’s largest cruise agency, are joining forces in 2012. A division of World Travel Holdings, CruisesOnly (www.CruisesOnly.com, 1-800-CRUISES) will be the featured cruise agency in all of Cruising Authority’s audio and video programming for 2012, offering the show’s audience a portal to the cruise industry’s best-available rates, discounts, and bonus offers.
“We’re very pleased to be teaming up with Cruising Authority,” said Jeffrey Sherota, Sr. Vice President of CruisesOnly. “As America’s largest cruise agency, we’re always looking for opportunities to partner with other industry leaders. We believe our customers will find plenty of value in Cruising Authority’s expert and entertaining original content, and we look forward to providing the show’s audience with direct access to the industry’s biggest and most exclusive selection of cruise deals.”
Cruising Authority is also making changes and upgrades to its website, www.CruiseTalkShow.com, in order to make it easier for users to navigate their extensive library of talk-show segments (over 130 audio files in all), videos, written reviews, and photo albums. Cruising Authority’s guest list is a virtual “who’s who” of the cruise industry, and the talk show continues to produce relevant audio and video content recorded and filmed in locations across the globe including Alaska, the Caribbean, China, Hawaii, Italy, Norway, and Sweden. Most recently, Cruising Authority set sail from Dubai aboard Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas; come July, the talk show’s ever-expanding audience will enjoy an opportunity to live vicariously through host Barry Vaudrin when he tours England as part of a classic transatlantic experience via Cunard’s legendary Queen Mary 2.
Cruising Authority is also expanding its programing through the development of a new brand entitled The Cruise Journalist. Filmed on locations around the world and aboard some of the industry’s most exciting cruise ships, this new brand’s focused and enticing video content, will afford viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the unique ups and downs of the cruise journalist’s lifestyle.
