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 space 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 onboard were a real eye opener 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). 50+ sailings and a World Cruise later and I’m still trying to sell the ocean to everyone I meet.
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.
