Lisa developed a love of cruising during her three years working for P&O Cruises.  While it may sound cliché, no two days were ever the same managing the onboard Shore Excursions department.  An average week in the Caribbean involved escorting passengers on snorkelling, scuba diving and deep sea fishing excursions. Her highlights of a three month world cruise included bottle feeding baby elephants in Sri Lanka, climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge and searching for the Big Five whilst on safari in South Africa.  

Lisa also writes, Travel Loving Family, a family travel blog sharing travel tips, reviews, holiday giveaways and destination guides from her travels to over 80 countries. She has worked with many travel brands and tourist boards including Mark Warner Holidays, Top Villas, Bookings For You, Royal Caribbean International, Le Boat and Brittany Ferries.

Lisa has settled down to a life on land with her husband who she met during her first contract at sea.  They have two boys, aged 4 and 7, who also share a love of cruising.


Donna loves cruising with her husband and two teenage boys. Having cruised with the children from a young age she feels it is the perfect way to experience the world safely. Her boys are social butterfly’s and love meeting other children their own age whilst onboard some of the most extraordinary floating ships.

She also writes over at Like Love Do, a travel memoir of her trips, from London to far off beaches. She has an eye for the unusual and like to go off of the beaten track just to find the perfect photo. With a passion for photography and exploring cruising has become the perfect holiday choice.
