Years of travel industry experience

I have had the pleasure of working for Celebrity Cruises for over 10 years now. Having been on 28 cruises myself, I come with a wealth of cruising knowledge and advise. There aren't many ports in the Mediterranean and Caribbean I haven't been to and explored, and I still think cruising is the best way to holiday after all these years.

Top destinations to pick your brains on
  • Montenegro
  • Italy
  • The Caribbean
  • Dubai
  • The South of France – Nice, the gateway to Cannes and Monaco
What Celebrity ships have you sailed on?
  • Celebrity Constellation
  • Celebrity Millennium
  • Celebrity Solstice
  • Celebrity Eclipse
  • Celebrity Equinox
  • Celebrity Reflection
  • Celebrity Silhouette
Best port you’ve sailed to, and why?

It would be very hard to pick my favourite port out of more than 70 I've visited. If I had to choose I would say Kotor, Montenegro as it is a beautiful port to sail into, surrounded by mountains and greenery. And when you arrive it has a stunning yacht area in the bay and the untouched ancient old town to explore. 

Top Cruise Tip

Have a packing list or, I prefer, a packing list app so you will never forget a thing, and the more you cruise the less your find you will take or need.

What couldn’t you travel without in your suitcase?

My camera, to capture my amazing cruise memories. Also, a money belt which is great for convenience and security.
