I've been to...

I travelled to Malta, Holland and France while living in the UK. Later on (after returning to Australia), I completed a worldwide trip, extensively touring countries like the USA, Egypt, Italy and New Zealand over a three month period.

I've cruised on...

Cunard's Queen Mary 2, Celebrity Solstice, Pacific Jewel and Carnival Legend.

I got my start in travel...

My passion for travel started sixteen years ago with a trip to the USA as a lifeguard and counsellor, teaching children for Camp America. My travel wish list expanded from there and I went on to live and work in the United Kingdom for eight years, working with British Airways and First Choice Holidays.

My favourite cruise...

Was on a Royal Caribbean cruise in the Caribbean for my honeymoon.

I always pack...

My passport! Never forget it!

My best insider tip for cruising...

Book your next cruise and put down a deposit while you're on your current cruise!

I've been to...

Africa, the USA, Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Fiji, Europe and all over Australia, but my favourite destinations have to be Japan, Africa, the USA and Fiji.

I've cruised with...

P&O, Princess, Costa, Carnival, Cunard and Captain Cook cruises through the Fijian islands.

I got my start in travel...

I've worked in the travel industry since 2005, both in Sydney and on the Gold Coast. I used to manage a Flight Centre store, but made the move to Cruiseabout once I became hooked on cruising after my first experience cruising as a passenger.

My favourite cruise...

Was a Princess cruise to and around New Zealand... such varied ports and stunning landscapes!

I always pack...

A good book and my camera.

My best insider tip for cruising...

Take half what you think you need, and get to the shows early...they fill up quickly!

I've been to...

USA (East & West), South Pacific, New Zealand, Alaska, Hawaii, UK, Costa Rica, Germany, Hong Kong, Fiji, Mexico, Canada, Thiland, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, the Kimberley, most of the Western and Eastern Carribean (love St Maarten), Holland, Cuba, San Juan and I've driven around Australia.

I've cruised on...

Silver Shadow; Costa Atlantica; Pacific Dawn and Carnival Spirit, Imagination, Tropical, Fantasy, Destiny and Fascination.

I got my start in cruising...

I was fortunate enough to work as a Purser on board cruise ships for 10 years and as a Hotel Director for one year. I mainly sailed around the Carribean, Alaska & Hawaii. I also did a small stint sailing from Cairns to the Kimberley. I think once you have cruising in your blood, it becomes a life long passion.

My favourite cruise was...

With Silversea. There is nothing like having your own Butler, which we had on Silverseas' Silver Shadow. Definitely a bucket list experience!

I always pack...

As little as possible! But I do highly recommend binoculars for a river cruise...

My best insider tip for cruising is...

It's never until the second or third day that I find I slip into vacation mode - so just sit back, and relax into your cruising holiday at your own pace.
