Claire has always had a strong connection to the sea and grew up on the south coast of England, within half an hour of the cruise port of Southampton. Her own cruising adventures began when she was 14 with a school trip around the Eastern Mediterranean. Since then she’s played taxi driver to her parents as they’ve embarked on numerous cruises around the world.

Now with two young children of her own she’s reacquainting herself with family cruising and is loving every minute. Her first family cruise was onboard Carnival Vista in 2016 and she’s cruised solo with her girls on Royal Caribbean’s Navigator of the Seas in 2018.

Lisa

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 and is Editor of Trips100, the largest UK travel blogger network.  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.
