How long have you been working in the travel industry?

I have worked in Travel since 2012. This has been a mixture of ocean cruising and in the past 4 years has been dedicated to river cruising.

What, do you believe, makes river cruising unique?

It’s a perfect way to see multiple inland cities in a week or two week holiday. They also have incredibly in depth excursions in all ports of call which completely immerses you in the destination and culture.

Which river cruise lines have you cruised with?

I have been very lucky to have sailed with many river cruise lines including: Avalon, Emerald, Scenic, Riviera, Amadeus, Viking, AmaWaterways, Uniworld, APT, Croisi Europe, Crystal and U by Uniworld.

Are there any rivers or regions that you would particularly recommend?

If you are a first time river cruiser, I would recommend a Danube sailing for the culture and history. If you prefer the Landscapes of medival Europe, the Rhine is the perfect choice.

What is your most memorable river cruising experience?

My favourite cruise was the first one I ever did. This was a Danube sailing from Budapest. To be docked in the centre of this incredible city, and to see it lit up at night was truly wonderful. The ongoing Itinerary I did has since inspired many city breaks to the ports of call because they were so beautiful. I fell in love with river cruising instantly, and I think you will too!
