Our mission to be open & honest

We’ve created this page because we believe in open and honest cruise blogging.

We blog because we are passionate about cruising. Our blogs, videos, tweets and Instagram pictures are our way of sharing our adventures with our followers, you. We love it when you tell us how we’ve helped you decide on a cruise or thank us for advice and tips we give.

You will not find a ‘tariff guide’ on this site as we do not charge by the Tweet, Facebook post, Video or Blog article.

 

Visits, Events and gifts

A popular misconception is that bloggers gets lots of ‘freebies’ and ‘sponge’ off businesses.

We want to be open and honest so will always declare in our blogs, posts or video descriptions when we’ve been provided something for free which normally isn’t available or is normally charged for.

Bloggers do get invited to events and visits and we think it’s important you know when we’ve attended or received something for free. When this is the case we will always mark our content with ‘AD’ at the beginning.

 

Social media followers and likes

We promise we will never inflate our followers, subscribers or likes on any platform by purchasing fake followers.

The pressure is on for bloggers to hit a certain number of followers, you can buy these online – it’s not on and we won’t be part of it! Enough said!

 

Advertising

While being open and honest, we also suggest you read our Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy for information on advertising.

 

Advertising Standards Agency (ASA) and Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) guidance regarding Social media endorsements

On the 23rd of January 2019, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) published guidance regarding Social media endorsements which can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/social-media-endorsements-guide-for-influencers/social-media-endorsements-being-transparent-with-your-followers. We welcome this guidance as we believe in being honest and transparent with our followers and in fact had created this page long before this guidance was issued.
