I've been in the travel industry for 9 years now. I started as an overseas children's rep for TUI and Crystal Ski, and followed that with 3 years as entertainment staff on board cruise ships; specifically Disney Cruises and P&O Australia. I've been part of the cruise team for 2 years and built up my knowledge of different cruise lines. That, combined with my unique perspective of ship life, has meant that I always put 100% into what I do and can help steer you in the right direction for a cruise.
I've always loved cruising, and since I returned permanently to land I've taken advantage of every opportunity to experience cruising as a guest. Predominantly I've travelled with Marella, and seen most of Europe and most recently returned from the Caribbean.
My strengths lie in creating fabulous itineraries for Europe, Caribbean, and Alaska. Alaska is my number one favourite place to cruise as I spent a good part of my crew life going between the Bahamas and Alaska, transiting the Panama Canal 4 times in the process. I have also been lucky enough to have cruised to Hawaii and to many of the Pacific Islands and Australian Coastal Ports.
My specialist knowledge is Disney Cruises. I spent 2 years on the Disney Wonder and still keep tabs on what is going on through a combination of continuous training and my old ship mates who are still sailing. I work with many different cruise lines including P&O, Princess, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity, and Norwegian Cruise Lines.
I grab every opportunity I get to learn more about different destinations and keep up to date with individual cruise lines through ship visits and events. I'm always happy to share my knowledge and experiences with people and like to think that the cruise holidays I create are meaningful and tailored to suit the individual.
My feedback so far
