Overview
Cruising Interrupted started out as More Joy of Cruising, the follow-up to the award-winning The Joy of Cruising, a fun, upbeat look at travelers from all over the world with a passion for ocean cruising and who act on that passion in creative and fascinating ways. Then the pandemic happened. And cruising was interrupted. Cruising Interrupted will fascinate anyone who has ever cruised, aspires to take a cruise, or just loves travel. At the same time, Cruising Interrupted acknowledges the influence on cruising of the Covid-19 pandemic, the most significant event in the history of cruise travel since the sinking of the Titanic.

About the author
Paul C. Thornton is originally from Brooklyn and Long Island, New York. Cruising Interrupted is Paul's third book, a follow-up to the fun, upbeat, award-winning The Joy of Cruising. His cruise-themed books are a stark departure from his debut: White Man's Disease, a memoir described as "gripping and inspiring" in the press release announcing it as the winner of the North Street Book Prize, about Paul's harrowing brush with death, journey of recovery from trauma, resilience and ultimately transformation. White Man's Disease is at once poignant, sad, tragic and funny. Despite their very different subjects, at the heart of both White Man's Disease and The Joy of Cruising/Cruising Interrupted is passion and how passionate people do wondrous things. Paul lives in Fort Myers, Florida with his wife Cheryl and considers cruising with their grandchildren life's ultimate escape. Paul longs to cruise as much as the people he writes about in The Joy of Cruising and Cruising Interrupted.
