Introducing Cruise Reporter Terri Vaudrin


Cruising Authority’s Terri Vaudrin

This is Cruise Reporter, Terri Vaudrin’s debut as she conducts her first podcast interview with the Captain of the Norwegian Getaway.  Terri has been on at least twelve cruises since 1997, so she has some great cruise experiences.  This was a very special cruise on the Norwegian Getaway because she took her sister, Staci, on her first cruise.  “It was a thrill to see this cruise through the eyes of my sister, who has never been on a cruise”, says Cruising Authority Reporter, Terri Vaudrin.  Also, stay tuned for a cruise video featuring this cruise aboard the Norwegian Getaway.


Sisters Vacation Adventure

The sisters, Terri Vaudrin and Staci Aubuchon, embarked on a cruise adventure aboard the Norwegian Getaway in July of 2016.  What made this particular cruise unique is this was Terri’s sister’s first cruise experience.  Both Terri and Staci had an epic vacation away from their husbands as they dined in the great restaurants aboard the Norwegian Getaway.  Staci’s dream of swimming with dolphins came true when they visited Cozumel and experienced Dolphin Discovery, a popular dolphin encounter excursion.Sisters5
