Let’s Talk About Cruising

Friday April 28, 2023

So you want to learn more about cruising? You have come to the right place! My friends and fellow travel writers Ann and Steve Teget have taken over twenty different cruises – all over the world. If you need a question answered, they are just the pair to do it!


Ann and Steve began writing about their travels in 2014 when Ann was diagnosed with two chronic illnesses and needed a hobby to lift her spirits. Since then, their blog,, has blossomed into a joy-filled site that inspires readers to live and travel well.

Both native Midwesterners, the Tegets write about travel, food, and healthy living. 

Since 2019, this married couple has lost a combined 200+ pounds and adopted a healthier and more active lifestyle. They now seek destinations and travel experiences that enhance their healthy lifestyle and well-being. 

Ann’s healthy living journey was featured on the cover of Woman’s World Magazine and the “Fearlessly Facing 50 and Beyond” podcast.

This dynamic writing duo was named the 2019 Midwest Network’s Bloggers of the Year. Additionally, the Tegets own and operate a successful Airbnb in Pawhuska, Okla. Their Airbnb, called Postcard Place, has received more than 185 consecutive 5-star reviews and was featured in The Pioneer Woman Magazine

Highlights in this episode:

  1. The importance of connecting with their audience
  2. Authentic travel
  3. How to create healthy travel habits
  4. Their recent cruise with Holland America
  5. The first-ever Postcard Jar Cruise
  6. Sage advice for first-time cruisers
  7. Postcard Jar Friends Cruise to Alaska 2024 (I am going too!)

Special Tips from Ann and Steve:

If you have never cruised before:

  • Find a great travel agent
  • Know that all cruises are not the same
  • Consider inside passage travel
  • A group cruise is a great introduction

Today’s episode is Part Three of my series of three episodes devoted to cruising. In Part One, we talked with Lina and David Stock of Divergent Travelers all about their global, super adventurous type of cruises. Next, in Part Two, you will hear all about our incredible experience with Viking Cruises. Lastly, Ann and Steve finished the series by sharing their extensive experience sailing on larger ships worldwide.

Hopefully, you feel well-prepared to make an informed decision about cruising! I sure do!
