" I met Ming on an expedition cruise, and her familiarity with and passion for the cruising industry were immediately apparent. Ming served on the expert panel for the 2017 Readers' Choice cruise contests I managed for USA TODAY 10Best by helping us choose nominees in nine different categories. She's a joy to work with and travel with, and I wouldn't hesitate to turn to her for cruising advice, both personally and professionally."
