I’ve long wanted to make a one-hour public television special about cruising. And we’re doing just that now. My TV crew and I are on a Mediterranean cruise, filming a special that will air across the country in the fall of 2018. It won’t be pro or con cruising — just a candid and honest look at this travel option, one of the fastest growing kinds of travel.
For the next couple of weeks, I’ll be posting daily at http://blog.ricksteves.com as we cruise to destinations ranging from Barcelona in the west to Rhodes in the east. In this clip, I’m just in from a hot day of filming on shore. I took an amazing shower (any shower would have been amazing, the way I was feeling), changed into my casual cruise wear, and am enjoying a quiet, private sunset on my balcony with no land in sight — but curiously surrounded by lots of ships. Stay tuned for lots of Mediterranean fun and learning.
