Welcome, Cruise Miss!

Time Spent At Sea is delighted to welcome a new blogger to our cruise fold, Danielle Fear - otherwise known as Cruise Miss from her own blog and Twitter accounts - who will be providing periodic thoughts and reviews from her own travels.

Danielle, a keen twenty-something cruiser from England, became a convert to cruising in 2007 when she took her first voyage with P&O Cruises on their venerable Oriana. From there she has both worked in and written about the cruise business and has become a noted authority on the subject, especially when it comes to cruising for younger people. She says: "My first cruise was the complete opposite to everything I had imagined a cruise to be. It was lively, fun, full of energy, the average age was definitely not 80 and I didn’t have to wear a dress every evening as I had expected. 

"Those 12 days on board really were amazing and it is fair to say I definitely caught what is often referred to as 'the cruising bug' (and, no, I don’t mean norovirus!)."

Danielle is frequently quoted in the media, including the likes of Travel Mole and Cruise Industry News, about various cruise issues and will be undertaking her next voyage with MSC Cruises this week when she will report back on the experience of sailing with the world's third-biggest line (at least until Norwegian Cruise Line launch their new Norwegian Breakaway at the end of the month) in due course.
