Hello and thank you for dropping by! 


I am a cruise journalist based in Vancouver, Canada. I took my first cruise in 1991 and immediately fell in love with the concept of a port-hopping, all-inclusive floating vacation. Cruising became my preferred way of vacation, and in 1994 I joined the cruise industry as a travel agent. 


Over the past 25 years, my career in cruising has taken me through various travel agencies, promoting cruising to the public. In 2015, I created Your Cruise Coach, and transitioned to cruise travel writing. My mission is to preach the merits of cruising to the travel trade, as well as the traveling public.


2019 will see this website relaunched with more of my cruise travel stories, tips and advice. I hope you will enjoy your visit with me here for now, and watch for a new look this spring!


​Bon Voyage!
