Work With Me

Work with me to create influential content on travelling to, and around, Europe.

Spotting ships

I am David and I am obsessed with the world of cruising!

I took my first ferry sailing as a child on Scandinavian Seaways (today known as DFDS) on a family holiday to LEGOLAND in Billund, Denmark. That's one of my earliest and fondest childhood memories. Today, my love for LEGO and sea travel is stronger than ever!

I took my first holiday aboard a cruise ship in 2009 and was instantly hooked.

In 2010 I set up 2 for 1 Mini Cruises as a way to help people discover great value deals to enable them to try travelling by sea, be it by ferry or cruise ship, at a low cost.

A year later I set up Mini Cruise Reviews as I was regularly asked about travelling on-board ferries and cruise ships. I decided the best way to explain the ins and outs of what to expect on-board was to set up a site with very detailed reviews about every aspect of my journeys.

In 2014 I set up Ports of Call, a cruise blog where I could write about all aspects of cruise ship holidays, not just mini cruises but odysseys around the world.

My son was born in the same year and since then I've naturally focused more on family cruise holidays, be that planning a family cruise or finding family-friendly activities in amazing destinations around the world.

Brands I have worked with

I have worked with many major brands in the cruise, ferry and tourism industries, creating content for use online as well as for in print. Here are just some of the organisations I have worked with so far.

I am always looking out for new opportunities to provide my website visitors and social followers with an even better experience. If I can help supply content for your customers and your website visitors then that is great too.

I typically work with ferry operators, cruise lines, tourist boards, hoteliers, attraction operators, and travel agents. But this is not an exhaustive list. So long as the opportunity is relevant to my audience I will consider it.

Events I consider include press launches, press trips (individual and group-based), escorted tours, visits to attractions, and so on.

I am also happy to talk about content opportunities including online guest posts, articles for print media, and social media promotion.

Why work with me?

  • Timely - I can agree a time-scale and most importantly can work to deadlines.
  • Professional - When I travel for work I am strictly professional. Of course I like to have fun but work always comes first.
  • Reliable - If I say I will deliver then I will follow through. Trust is the key to a successful and on-going relationship.
  • Good value - I ensure that I extract the best possible value out of my experiences and that my coverage exceeds expectations.
