Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to you and yours!  As 2021 comes to a close, I figured it was a good time to look back at this past year.

Yes, Covid is still around but cruising has returned although with some restrictions.

We were able to cruise twice in 2021.  Our first cruise was a B2B cruise on Carnival's newest ship, Mardi Gras.  WOW what a ship!  It was huge.  While it is a nice ship, it is not one of my favorites.  I did not like the layout, too hard to get from one point to another without getting lost, and we were on it for 14 days!

But it was really nice to be cruising again.  We were able to get new product photos and videos.

Our second cruise was on NCL's Escape.  We have been on this ship before and really like it.  This was not a "working" cruise as we decided that we just needed a break after the really busy Halloween season for our Trophy and Awards company. 

Yes, we have 2 companies - Premier Cruise Gear and Premier Award Group which provides trophies and awards and Halloween was the busiest we have seen in 11 years.  I think everybody had a Halloween costume contest.

Our next cruise is in January 2022 on Carnival's Pride.  This is inventory week at the shop.  We hire a company to come in and take our mandatory end of year inventory.  The company informed us that since they are short on employees, the inventory will take longer than previous years.  So since we can not process any orders until they are done, we figured it was a great time to cruise.

The January cruise is a Panama Canal cruise.  This will be our 3rd trip through the Canal.  This is one of our favorite itineraries (other than the one time we were able to cruise to Cuba).

We will once again  be taking new photos and videos and passing out promotional products to our fellow cruisers.  We like to pass out goody bags that include a souvenir magnet, can sleeve, lanyard and other useful cruise items.  It is a great ice breaker and also promotes our unique cruise items.  So if you are on the Carnival Pride on Jan. 8, 2022, let me know so we can get a goody bag to you.

Other than the cruises, we have added new designs and products.  I will also be working on the January cruise adding more designs to our magnets, door banners, tote bags and more....thank goodness for laptops!

As 2021 comes to a close, I hope that you and your family are safe and healthy.  If you haven't been able to cruise yet, hopefully you will be able to in 2022.  It is so great to be on the ocean again!

Until next time,

Karen
