I found my passion for cruising back in 2007 when I embarked on my first cruise – a 12-night sailing to the Canary Islands onboard P&O Cruises Oriana.
Cruising had never entered my mind, the thought of having a holiday onboard a ship was not appealing. I didn’t want to be confined to a ship or pretend to be someone I’m not for two weeks and I certainly didn’t want to dress up every evening, after all it was supposed to be a holiday.
My first cruise was the complete opposite to everything I had imagined a cruise to be. It was fun, full of energy, the average age was definitely not 80 and I didn’t have to wear a dress every evening as I had expected. Those twelve days on-board really were amazing and it is fair to say I definitely caught what is often referred to as “the cruising bug” (and no I don’t mean norovirus)
When I am not at sea I spend my ‘shore days’ working within cruise travel. I suppose I get the best of both worlds in that sense.
You may have seen my name mentioned through expert comment, quotes for press purposes and articles on the following: Travel Bulletin, The Sun Online, Direct Travel, Travel Daily News, TravelMole, Breaking Travel News, Travolution, Captain Greybeard Blog and Cruise Industry News just to name a few.

Scott is a relatively new convert to cruising but, like so many of us is now completely hooked.
Since discovering his passion for cruise travel Scott has also turned into somewhat of a ship spotter (leaning more towards cruise ships of course). You can often find him on the docks in Southampton before dawn or in the afternoon snapping away images of these huge white monsters as they come and go.
By day, when he’s not dreaming about being on a cruise, his job gives him the opportunity to play with all sorts of cool marine gadgets such as vessel tracking systems, radar equipment and very occasionally he even gets to venture out on the water piloting a Personal Water Craft – that’s a jetski to you and me!
