Description
The Joy of Cruising is about passion. Award-winning author Paul C. Thornton profiles travelers from all over the world with a passion for cruising and who act on that passion in creative and fascinating ways. From a Grammy award winner, Poker Hall of Famer, winner of the TV series Last Comic Standing, to "ordinary" cruisers doing extraordinary things, The Joy of Cruising will fascinate anyone who has ever cruised, aspires to take a cruise, or just loves travel. The Joy of Cruising is an anthology that takes a look at the magic of cruising from the vantage point of travelers passionate about travel—a compendium of anecdotes, stories, and profiles of cruisers who have some unique or interesting perspective. It is not cruise-line specific, nor an industry overview, cruising guide/how-to, exposé or behind the scenes. The Joy of Cruising is a positive examination of why cruisers do what they do in the pursuit of their passion.
About the author
Grand prize winner 2017 North Street Book Prize! Paul C. Thornton is originally from Brooklyn and Long Island, New York. The Joy of Cruising is Paul's second book, a stark departure from his first: 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 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.
