My 25 First Time Cruise Tips And Advice As A Total Cruise Fanatic / Expert

Cruising has been very much the focus of the last month or so for me both in travel – and also from a travel blogging and writing perspective. The highlights have included:

  • Writing a guest article for the Daily Mail Travel Site, a major UK newspaper, about tips for first time cruisers.
  • Appearing as a guest on the Heather on her Travels podcast and site, again talking about cruising and offering tips for first time cruisers.
  • Being selected to be one of three official travel bloggers to cover the launch and maiden voyage of the MSC Preziosa cruise ship.
  • Taking a 3 week trip on Cunard’s Queen Mary 2, which included  a transatlantic crossing from Southampton to New York and then a trip from there to the Caribbean and back. While on board I posted a number of articles, made 2 podcasts of observations and recorded interviews with a number of the senior crew that I will soon turn into podcasts and write up articles.

    I am listening to your podcast right now. Very valuable stuff. I read the blog post associated with the podcast as well. It helped me think about some of the different expenses I will need to plan for. Headed to Jamaica in April for my first cruise. Can’t wait! Thanks for the tips!
