About

Outside the Vatican in Rome

Hi, I’m Emma, Owner of ‘A Passport to Travel’ and chief blogger at ‘From Penguins to Polar Bears’, a travel blog dedicated to expedition travel, the hot new trend in cruising.

My passion for cruising got me into trouble at a very early age. Fresh out of college I wanted to travel and see the world, like most, but I wanted to get paid for it. Not content to backpack through Europe like most of my friends, I found myself working as a Purser on board a cruise ship in the Caribbean.

Do you remember “The Love Boat”, specifically Gopher? 

Yes, that was me.

I can certainly tell you that working on a cruise ship is nothing like that. Gopher made it look like a walk in the park, but being a purser is hard work..

 Once I got started, I was hooked!  Now, I spend my days helping my clients fulfill their dream vacations.  Whether it is a multi-generational Caribbean cruise or a bucket list trip to Antarctica, I am there to help every step of the way.


Cruising is my passion and my specialty.  If you are looking for the perfect cruise, please feel free to send me an email.  My virtual door is always open.  Send me an email here.
