I was very excited to be written up as part of this case studay. As far as Social Media Outlets, I want to utilize the best tools to help educate future cruisers, pass on awesome deals, review cruise vacations, and to have interactive conversation about the cruise industry with others passionate about cruising. Twitter is a tool that I am very excited about because it very useful in providing info in between blog posts and for having conversations that many others can benefit from. I encourage you to set up an account if you have not already. Of course, once you set up your account you should follow @CruiseSource – http://twitter.com/cruisesource – Happy Sailing ~ Rich Tucker
