About the Author

Fran Wenograd Golden is travel editor of the Boston Herald, author of Cruise Vacations For Dummies, coauthor of Frommer’s Alaska Cruises & Ports of Call (with Jerry), and author of TVacations: A Fun Guide to the Sites, the Stars and the Inside Stories Behind Your Favorite TV Shows. She lives north of Boston with her husband, Ed, and two teenagers, Erin and Eli, who love traveling and join her on the road (and on the high seas) whenever school and job commitments permit.

Jerry Brown was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and worked on Scottish newspapers and then in the news department of the London Daily Mail. Later, for 31 years, he was the West Coast bureau chief of a leading travel trade publication, and he’s the other coauthor (with Fran) of Frommer’s Alaska Cruises & Ports of Call. He and Margaret, his wife and best editor, have two grown sons, Mark and Paul, and as a family unit and individually they have sailed the waters of Europe on numerous occasions. Jerry is the proud grandfather of Victoria Rose, whom he hopes someday to introduce to the joys of a European cruise vacation.
