About.com Cruises Expert Linda Garrison

Linda Garrison has been the About.com Cruises Expert since July 2000. During that time, she's been on over 100 cruises and spent over 800 days on a ship.

Linda Garrison went on her first cruise in in high school and has been hooked on cruising ever since. She has cruised over 100 times and spent more than 800 days on cruise ships. Linda loves ships of all kinds and has sailed on a wide variety of ships from small sailing ships to mega-liners, budget-priced cruises to ultra-expensive. She has enjoyed cruise destinations on all seven continents and visited dozens of diverse countries and hundreds of ports of call via ship. Many cruise travelers don't realize just how much of the world can been seen on a cruise!


Linda has loved to travel her entire life. As a child, she learned to love maps and helped her parents plan many family trips. Her husband has often said that he only has to open the car door and say "Go" and she is ready to travel -- anywhere, anyplace, anytime. As an adult, she quickly determined the usefulness of the Internet for planning vacations and expanding her knowledge of the world. Becoming a travel writer was a logical extension of this lifelong passion for travel and learning.

Linda has been responsible for the About.com Cruises site since July 2000 and lives in the Atlanta area.

By Linda Garrison:

"Cruises are a great vacation for almost everyone who loves to explore new places, meet new people, eat good food, and seek new horizons. My goal is to provide the About.com Cruises Web site visitor with all the information necessary to plan and enjoy the cruise experience as much as I do. In addition to general information on cruise planning, the site is rich in cruise photos and information on cruise ships and cruise destinations around the world."
