Hi. My name is Nik and I’ve been at Cruise.co.uk for nearly 10 years. OK, so I took an 18 month break while I worked at a soccer school in Phuket, Thailand…. but I missed the cruising world so much I came back. I currently live in Totana, Spain.
I’ve always had the travel bug from a young age. I think it stemmed from when I was young, and my mother opened a map of the world on the kitchen table one morning and asked me to close my eyes, spin around, and then point to somewhere on the map. My choice was Connecticut, North America, and so within 1 month, I packed my ruck sack and headed to mentally handicapped summer camp for 8 weeks. I really enjoyed my time, meeting so many new people and experiencing another part of the world.
Now I really had the travel bug and wanted to explore more. A few years later, I headed off on my first cruise ship to work in the shops onboard. My first ever ship with Norwegian Cruise Lines Windward. Since then I have worked onboard X ships and travelled all over the world experience many amazing cultures.
My favourite place I’ve visited
Acapulco. Back in the early 90’s it was the place to be seen: amazing beaches, stunning beach bars, amazing food and the cliff divers were unreal. Sadly, it is a very dangerous place to visit nowadays so I’m glad I got the chance to experience it.
My favourite thing about cruises
Everything is easy and all in one place. The service is better than any 5 star hotel and the staff will bend over backwards to accommodate you. I love the fact that you can fall asleep in one country and wake up in a completely different one the very next morning.
My role model
I don’t really have a “role model” but, Ricky Gervais absolutely cracks me up. To be fair, anybody that is honest, sincere and has a positive outlook on life does it for me.
My favourite movie
Wizard of Oz
My Bucket List?
The Galapagos Islands. I have seen and visited most other countries in the world, but this place would just be amazing. With all that stunning scenery and the wild life plus being able to jump on a zodiac and being taken to a stunning glacier. This is at the top of my bucket list.
Favourite cruise line
Norwegian Cruise Line. It was the first cruise company I ever worked for and whenever I visit an NCL ship there is always an old friend that I bump into. I also really like the amount of food options they have on their ships and you can’t beat them when it comes to the choice of speciality restaurants. Plus, I love the fact that I don’t need to dress up in a penguin suit and can do what I want when I want. There are no set dining times at all so you can come and go as you please which suits me perfectly.
So I have a wealth of knowledge on cruising and traveling, so give me a call and let’s get cruisin’!
