In The Media
I was recently mentioned in The Guardian which was SO cool. I’ve not bought a newspaper for years but I bought this copy and I intend to keep it forever. The article used me as an example of why the ‘instagram generation’ are cruising more frequently.
The online version of the piece can be found here: Why Cruises Float The Boat of The Instagram Generation.
I’ve also been interviewed for a number of pieces, usually to do with how younger people are cruising more and more. I am so proud of the cruise industry and feel so honoured to be a part of it.
It is a world away from the insurance industry where I spend my days (insurance conferences just aren’t as fun as cruise related ones!) To learn more about me check out the post here: About Me
World of Cruising
I was recently featured on World of Cruising with a guide to cruising for millennials which was amazing. I have also written for the magazine. You can check that out here: Emma Le Teace’s Guide to Cruising for Millennials.
The site was also mentioned on the Telegraphs website in an article called ‘The cruise for people who don’t consider themselves cruises’. The article has the most amazing quote:
“So, do you fancy a cruise?” I asked my partner. He pulled a face. “We’re not really ‘cruise-ship people’, are we?” I opened my laptop and the pithily named cruisingisntjustforoldpeople.com website: “But maybe we’re meant to be?”

I’ve been interviewed multiple times on BBC radio. Below is an extract of the show where I was interviewed about mystery cruises. It was SO much fun being on the radio, if a little scary. Being told ‘okay Emma, you’re on air NOW, is terrifying’.
I was recently quotes in an article by the NY Times which talked about the way that technology is changing the cruise industry. I mentioned downloadable apps and talked about how cruise ship tech makes the experience of cruising faster, easier and more fun. Click here to read the full article.
I was voted ‘favourite cruise blogger’ at the Wave Awards in 2018. It was such an honour to be up against cruise bloggers who I had looked up to for years. Click here to read more about it.
Shaving My Head… As You Do!
Last year, I let the captain of the Marella Discovery shave my head and I’m so glad I did. We raised £5000+ for a cancer support charity and I was able to donate my hair to be made into wigs for children that need it.
I’ve been posting YouTube videos and sharing photos across social media during the process of my hair growing back so if you notice I sometimes look like a fluffy little kiwi fruit, now you know why!
World of Cruising
The story was also mentioned on World of Cruising’s website. I am so grateful for the media attention because we managed to raise £3500 online before the day! That is CRAZY cool.
