I have loved cruise life since I was 14, and dreamt of working on a cruise ship since I was 19 in this position, and I have always held dear the idea of working as a Cruise Director one day and entertaining 1000’s of people each year and making their holiday experience one they shall never forget. Needless to say, the fact that I have the incredible privilege of working on board doing a job I love so much is surreal to say the least.
