I returned from a two week vacation last week to find that our blog was picked as one of the top 20 cruise blogs by readers of USA TODAY.
The newspaper and "10 Best" are now asking the public to pick the best blog out of this group. At the end of the voting on July 11th, a "top 10" list will be published.
The USA TODAY top 20 list includes many of the bloggers who I have picked in the past: Chris Cruise, Captain Greybeard, CruiseMates, Expert Cruiser, Peter Knego’s Decked (Maritime Matters)(which is really outstanding), and Cruise Maven.
At the moment, Carnival Cruise Director John Heald is the top vote receiver.
I was surprised that this blog made the list. The other 19 bloggers promote the cruise industry and never criticize it. Our motto, on the other hand, is "everything the cruise lines don’t want you to know."
The voting continues for the next three weeks. You can vote once everyday.
