On their daily radio program, I had the chance to discuss Cruise Currents, the impact of social media in the industry, and the future of the cruise industry.

You can truly tell that Paul and Elizabeth truly have a passion for traveling, especially cruising. Not only have they cruised on every single Holland America Line ship, but when I asked Elizabeth how many cruises she has sailed on, she responded as saying that she has lost count somewhere after 100!
As a married couple that work together everyday, finding romance is an important part of their travel lives. Their best-selling book, Honeymoons: A Romantic Travel Guide, is winner of a Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Award. Another book on romantic getaways is under development.
