Question of the Week: Are there AA meetings on cruises?

Dear Editors,

I am looking for a cruise line with Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Any help would be great.



Hi Ron,

Great question! Many travelers (including me!) are surprised to discover that cruise lines do indeed hold AA meetings on their ships. In fact, almost every major cruise line hosts these meetings, including Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Celebrity, Princess and Holland America. Once you’re on board, just look on the daily schedule for an activity called Friends of Bill W. – named after the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous.

Before you book your cruise, Travelocity agents would be happy to confirm that the cruise line will be holding the meetings during your sailing. You can call them at 1-877-815-5446.

Happy Travels,


Wanted: Amazing Women Volunteers – The We Do Good Awards

In every community, in every friend circle or family, there’s a special woman that outshines the rest with her compassion, her commitment, and her care for the less fortunate. Travelocity’s Travel for Good program and WE TV want to honor these super-star women for their tireless service.

If you know a special woman volunteer and you’d like to make sure she gets the recognition she deserves, nominate her for the We Do Good Awards today. There are three categories to choose from: the Travel for Good Award, the Women on Their Way Award, and the We Do Good Award.

A Bear of a Tour

Trend has it that more and more travel companies are finding an increasing number of ways to pamper the traveling animals of the world. I’ve heard of special beds for cats, complimentary pet toys at the front desk, treat menus, and even dog-walking services. But until now, the pet travel industry has been rather unfairly skewed toward living and breathing, flesh and blood animals. Shouldn’t we all be asking ourselves: what about travel tailored toward our pets’ stuffed animal brethren?
