This is literally one of those books that you won't be able to put down until you finish it. And thanks to the author's website, you will be able to see photos and videos of the places he writes about in this book. I hope that more travel writers will adopt this philosophy. I have lent this book to several friends who have enjoyed it as much as I did.

This book is very well written and easy to read...you feel like you are sitting down with "chesterh" and he's just casually telling you how his vacation went. It's even like you are visiting the ports right along side him ~ well minus the sunscreen of course. This is definetly the kind of book that you won't want to put down. The author does an excellent job of communicating the insecurity and anticipation that we all have before we set sail for the first time. I highly recommend this book for cruise junkies... and for the those who dream of becoming one.

I enjoyed the laughs this book gave me. As a novice cruiser, it made me look at the lighter side of planning our dream vacation. The story begins with to cruise or not. Those are the same thoughts,and yes,even the same words Ive had with my own spouce.The book tells it like it is,from the authors persepctive. There are some funny episodes to laugh along with.My favorite had nothing to do with his cruise,but rather his nanny making bread. "Chester" is just a regular guy,so this story is easy to read.He gave us a great story of his first cruise! I enjoyed this book very much. I even mailed a copy to my travel agent. For would be cruisers and even the pros I reccomend this book.

I loved this book. I read it when I just came back from a cruise and wanted to read things that would let me hang on to the experience. Chesterh is a fun writer and I was amused the whole time. I went on his website and read some of his other cruise experiences too.

Mr Chesterh X is an excellent storyteller! I felt like I was right there with him and his wife on their 25th Anniversary cruise. He described their whole experience, from first thinking about taking one, through every wonderful experience on board, until having to return home.. with ease, imagination and creativity. I did not want to stop reading. I even felt sad when they had to pack and get prepared to disembark.

I think the author must have taken his post-cruise review on the Cruise Critic website and expanded it into this self-published book. Even so, it's a pretty good description of the kinds of things that happen on board. If you've never been on a cruise, it's really helpful to read this because it pulls in all the stuff you have to troll all over the web to find and puts it in one place. Like, what's dinner like? What do I wear? Will I feel trapped on board? and MY biggest pre-cruise question that I could never find a definitive answer to: "what is there to do onboard when you're not in port?" Professionally written and edited book? Nope. Entertaining and informative? You bet.

I bought this book before our first cruise to try to get an idea on what to expect. "Chester" does a great job at telling about his cruise. The book is a great read with a wonderful insight into what a cruise passenger can expect. Chester's writing style makes the book a fun and easy read that makes it hard to put down. I gained some great insight on what to expect on our cruise and now after taking ours I can attest to accuracy of Chesters tale. Although we were on a different cruise line we had many funny moments like Chester along with a great trip.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to cruise or wanting to re-live their cruise.

It's fun and informative! An easy read that takes you step by step through the cruising experience. We cruise about 3 times a year. Crystal, Regent, Seabourn and most often Holland America. Now we want to try Celebrity!
