About Us

Our first cruise was back 2014, a mini break on P&O Aurora. Love was in the air and we fell in love with the ship and cruising. Living in the port town of Milford Haven there must be something that draws us to ship life!

We may not be the youngest cruisers but we are trying to break the stereotype that cruising is for retired people.  You may notice how we tend to always favour inside cabins, this is so that we can spend money on more cruises and a drinks package (if you’ve seen our vlogs, you will know we like a cocktail or two!).

Take a look at our YouTube channel www.youtube.com/cruisemonkeys for ship tours and daily cruise vlogs. The vlogs we upload are us being us on a ship, so hopefully you will feel as it you’ve come along on the cruise with us – we like to make sure we are always open and honest with our followers (Our mission to be open and honest).

On a cruise you will normally find us wondering around the ship taking in the atmosphere (and working our way through the cocktails).
