Cruise Expert and Blogger. Gary Bembridge has been an avid cruise fan and self-confessed ship geek for over a decade. He stumbled into cruising over a decade ago, when he reluctantly went on a business conference taking part on a ship, and discovered he loved being at sea. Since then, he has cruised extensively around the world. In addition to being a global marketing consultant, he also runs Tips for Travellers (http://www.tipsfortravellers.com) which he launched in 2005 and from where he podcasts, blogs and produces videos about travel and his first love: cruising. His latest project is a book entitled “The Cruise Traveler’s Handbook”, which is due to be published at the end of this month.
