This post in unlike any other that I've written for DivGro. It will not share any new insights into dividend growth investing, nor provide an update of my dividend growth portfolio. It won't be all that long, either. And you'll understand why, in a moment.
I'm writing this post on the balcony of our mini suite on the Norwegian Epic. My wife and I are on a Caribbean cruise. It is our first ever cruise as a married couple and we're doing it in celebration of our 28th anniversary. So far, its been a wonderful experience – something I can highly recommend. And I'm really grateful for the opportunity to celebrate our anniversary in this way!
The cool thing about this cruise is that we're getting it for a bargain price. Cruises are expensive to operate and unsold cabins do not generate income. So last-minute discount deals are available, if you know where to find them. Last-minute is a bit of a misnomer – cut-rate promotions are typically available within 90 days of departure and is a great way to cruise for cost-conscious travelers with flexible schedules.
This post's title is a tribute to our sons, who asked, indignantly: "Why would you want to post to your blog when you're on vacation?"
