World Cruises, A Quick Tour Of Scenic Eclipse & Special Offers From Princess & Seabourn

This Week on Avid Cruiser
This week on Avid Cruiser, we feature a travel writer who has been on five world cruises, with two more booked. Also, we've posted our video quick tour of Scenic Eclipse, which we visited last week while in New York. It was a whirlwind tour, shot with a GoPro and hastily edited on an Ipad. Still, the video conveys some of the essence of Eclipse. Also on Avid Cruiser this week, special offers from Princess & Seabourn.

Quick Tour Of Scenic Eclipse In Video

Scenic Eclipse

The video was shot with a GoPro during a quick-paced 45-minute tour, then hastily edited on an iPad while flying back home, so don't expect an Emmy-nominated presentation.
