Cruise Expert Interview - Joanne Peterson

Posted April 3rd, 2012

We thought that we should start introducing our Cruise Experts.  Read about Joanne Peterson from Cruiseabout Takapuna.

Jo has been in the travel industry for the best part of 10 years. With a huge love for travel, Jo has travelled all over the world. She can give first hand advice along with immaculate and prompt service. Jo has been on many small ship cruises and onboard large Cruiselines including Holland America, Seabourn, Cunard, P&O, Princess and many more...

When we talked to Jo she said her best holiday was when she went on her honeymoon to Vanuatu in April 2011. "We cruised the outer islands on the Island Passage - it was just simply stunning" she said.  She says can't think of a bad holiday & loves all of her holidays. Travelling is one of her biggest passions in life. It's where "you can always make the best of a bad situation".

When asked for her best travel advice she said "do your research and seek advice from the experts, half the fun of a holiday is in the planning". She goes on to say to pack well, as there is nothing worse than taking lots of things you don't need. She continues to say she "loves cruising because you only need to unpack once".

She says she never leaves home without her Iphone. "It's my digital camera, laptop, ipod and mobile"

If she had endless time and money she'd love to cruise the Mediterranean with her husband. But next on her wish list is to go first-class camping in Tanzania, with a few nights in Zanzibar on the way home.
