I was just 5 years old when I was introduced to cruising; the voyage was life changing. Since then, my love for the cruise industry has just grown stronger.  As I grew up, I kept sailing on cruises and meeting other cruise-obsessed people, whether it be by the pool on the Lido Deck, in the infamous teen clubs, or even on excursions!

Putting my marketing degree to use, I decided to create this blog in 2016. Being a cruise addict, I always wanted to share my experiences with the rest of the world; I wanted other people to understand the fun, friendly, and adventurous atmosphere of a cruise. I began publicising my voyages on social media channels and to my surprise, my friends kept asking to see more!

With this blog, I hope to inform people about cruising, as well as debunk the traditional stereotypes that surround the industry. Above all, I want to inspire people to book a cruise and help my fellow cruise addicts relive their favorite cruise memmories every single day.

Happy sailing,
