I joined Cruise Sale Finder at the beginning of 2017. Traveling is a big part of my life having visited 15 countries. My first cruise was on Dawn Princess and from the moment I stepped onboard I caught the cruising bug. Since then I have also sailed on Majestic Princess, Celebrity Solstice and Explorer of the Seas. Cruising is a great way to see many cities around the world – it is perfect for those who enjoy a relaxing holiday and for those who like to be on the go.
