Travel Dispatches on Cruiseable

Destination tips + itineraries for cruisers and travelers

I’ve been working as the Chief Curator at Cruiseable, a platform focused on helping travelers find the perfect cruising experience for them. I grew up with a very narrow idea of what cruising was: mega ships hitting up the same ports of call in touristed areas, offering little in the way of culture or educational experiences. Fast forward to our honeymoon when we cruised the Amazon River with Aqua Expeditions (32 person max), and I found myself singing a different tune. And now, working with an exceptionally talented and well-traveled group who’ve explored the globe – including someone who’s been on over 400 cruises (no, seriously)! –  it’s been extra fun finding out about some of the coolest, boutique cruising opportunities that help travelers visit off-beat ports of call.

I’m particularly excited to be a contributor to Cruiseable with the Travel Dispatches series, giving travelers and cruisers insight into destinations, with a special focus on how to enjoy certain locales with limited time.

My first dispatch on Panama City is now live on their site! Stay tuned for more travel dispatches from some of my favorite destinations around the world.

What are your thoughts on cruising? Which cruises do you find yourself most intrigued by?
