Princess Cruises has revealed story #12 on its blog “Inspired to Cruise,” featuring a Vietnam veteran who surprised his mother when she asked where he would go if he could cruise anywhere in the world, and he decided it was Vietnam.

In the story, “My Mother’s Gift of Healing” found at http://www.InspiredtoCruise.com, Les Brooks of Rogue River, Oregon, tells how he became curious about the place he left in 1967, and his surprise when his mother secretly booked the trip for him and his wife. Because his mother passed away before the cruise departed, her gift took on greater poignancy and meaning, and became an unexpectedly healing experience.

Each week during 2012 the blog will feature a new reason to cruise, gradually sharing a total of 52 inspiring passenger stories about what compelled them to take a cruise vacation.

The blog also showcases a short “Escape Inspiration” video about a favorite moment at sea. This week’s video, introduced by Ashley Peter Fernandes, a bar steward on Diamond Princess, features the mixing of the perfect martini.
