‘Set a course for adventure’ with something ‘exciting and new’: Cruise Diary

Television fans may recognize the name Jeraldine Saunders as that of the author of the book Love Boats, which inspired the hit television series The Love Boat. What most fans don’t know is that the book was autobiographical in nature and that Saunders had been one of the first female cruise directors in the world.
To share her expertise with novice and seasoned “cruisers,” Saunders later penned another book, Cruise Diary. Her readers have found it to be the perfect cruise accessory.
 Within the pages of the elegant hardbound Cruise Diary, readers will find information that can help guarantee a carefree and joyful vacation at sea. Having lived at sea seven days a week, 11 months each year for more than eight years as a cruise director, Saunders has written a book that offers tips that only someone who has worked and lived on ships as a cruise director could share.

Chapters in Cruise Diary include: packing, dressing for ship and shore, dining and shipboard tipping, embarkation, disembarkation, immigration and customs. 
Also included are sections for the cruiser to record diary notes, purchases, port lecture notes and names and contact information of new shipboard friends. There are also pages designed for mounting photos taken by the ship’s photographer.

In the months and years following a voyage, Cruise Diary will allow cruisers to relive the excitement of the trip, as everything was documented in his or her own handwriting, including memories of the many beautiful sights and all the shipboard adventures.
“Cruises were created for fun and relaxation, and they are filled with days and nights of enjoyment. I believe Cruise Diary is a memorable way for Signal Tribune travelers to relive their cruise experiences for years to come– happy sailing,” said Saunders.
