Since this is the final day of 2014, we thought we’d do something different to round out the year and take you on a visual journey through some of the voyages, ports and places we’ve traveled to.

Who knows what 2015 will have in store? One thing is certain: it’s sure going to start out […]

Today is Monday, December 29th, and the year 2014 is in its last dying embers.
