Welcome to Ships and Champagne
What started out as a cruise blog to show my experience to my customers when I was a travel agent, has now become a channel for me to inspire others to follow their dreams.
I must apologise in advance. I don’t know about tonnage, bow thrusters or other engineering facts, although I am open to learning about it. What is very important to me as a cruiser, is that I am able to dress up and feel wonderful. To me, cruising is all about glamour (not to be confused with sparkly ballgowns). Long flowing dresses, high heels (because you are never too far from your flats in the cabin), and just all round feeling and being amazing.
Fine dining and fine wines are a must for me. Food quality, sourcing, preparation and variety is equally as important, and an abundance of fresh fruit, salad and vegetables is essential. A great cruise blog wouldn’t be complete without talking about food!
Cruise lines are starting to make a lot of effort to lower their carbon footprint by designing energy efficient ships, responsibly sourcing food, responsible tourism and joint venturing with conservation agencies. This is a subject very close to my heart and I feel it is an important consideration when choosing a cruise line.
Yes, YOU. This cruise blog is not just for me to talk about my passion. It’s also a place for me to share my experiences to empower people to make the right decision for themselves. Booking the wrong cruise is worse than booking no cruise at all, so let’s give you all the information you need. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to leave them in the comments at the bottom of the blog posts and if I don’t know the answer, I will find out for you.
