Meriel has spent over two decades working onboard all sizes, types, standards and nationalities of cruise vessels as a Destination Specialist and Tour Manager, cruising the world’s exotic and far-flung ports and oceans. Her favourite destinations are those off-the-beaten track, where the guests can get close to nature and adventure. In addition to her far-reaching knowledge of the various cruise lines and ships, she has thorough first-hand experience of the destinations themselves, including the myriad ports of Scandinavia and Nordics – a region she's cruised to on several occasions. Meriel's expertise is backed up by her certification as a Cruise Master, presented by the Cruise Lines International Association.
