Smashing The Stereotype

Anyone who has met me, even briefly, will openly tell you that I am the worlds biggest goody two shoes. I like to follow the rules, even the unwritten ones. But when it comes to stereotypes I never have been one to conform to what society wants of me.

Okay, so some stereotypes suit me to a T! I’m a woman and I can’t park a car or read a map…But for the most part I am not at all what you would expect of me. I continue to surprise everyone in my life simply by being me! And I continue to surprise strangers with my holiday habits…

Everyone following this blog will be perfectly accustomed to the fact that I am a cruise addict, they may even be one too! But here is where the surprise comes in, I am not a rarity. Until I started this blog I was convinced that the only young British cruise addict I would ever meet was my best friend. I knew that in the States it was normal for young people to cruise. But on my tiny island I seemed to be pretty much alone. Boy was I wrong!

After I started this blog, I discovered that there were a whole host of young Brits out there trying to beat the stereotype that cruising was only for – the newlywed and the nearly dead! My favourites are detailed below:

Emma – If you enjoy my content then its a pretty safe bet that you will enjoy Emma’s too. Since the first time she read my blog her comment was: Hi northern version of me! She is basically just me but a southern softie. Click this to read!

Sanna – This girl is a gem! She took me under her wing and introduced me to everyone else in my niche; people always talk about how supportive the blogging community is and when I waltzed in Sanna proved to be the embodiment of that. Click this to read!

Ben & David – The Honest Cruising boys run a blog and a YouTube channel because they are simply more swanky than the rest of us. But seriously they’re hilarious! They have me in fits of laughter every week. Click this to read!

I like to think that we are a little dream team, taking on the world, converting young people to cruising one by one. We tag team in smashing the stereotypes that surround ship life! Well this week I have been tagged, stepping up to centre stage, I have partnered with Ocean World Travel for the second time to bust some of the myths that shroud cruising in everyday society.
