REO Speedwagon, Martina McBride, more to headline Tampa cruises

Planning on taking a Carnival cruise from Tampa in the next year? Keep an eye out for some famous faces. The cruise line this week unveiled the "Carnival Live Concert Series," a run of musical performances by big names on dozens of cruises throughout 2014 and four of them depart from Tampa. Tickets to each show are a la carte, costing between $20-$40 apiece or $100-$150 for VIP. So far, four cruises departing from Tampa — all five-day cruises of the Western Caribbean aboard the Carnival Paradise — will be part of Carnival Live: REO Speedwagon (departing April 19), Martina McBride (May 12), Chicago (May 31) and Gavin DeGraw (Aug. 18). If you were on the fence about booking a cruise from Tampa, maybe this will be the excuse you've been looking for. — Jay Cridlin

    The time is right for summer salads gussied up with light proteins. Boiled shrimp is the perfect candidate, especially paired with orange, avocado and mint, as it is here.

  5. Drink of the week: Yalumba Y Series Viognier, South Australia 2016

    Bars & Spirits

    I've long wondered why viognier isn't a more popular wine. With its seductive floral aromas and luscious fruit flavors, it's one of my favorite whites.
