Over het boek
Travelling the Mediterranean is a very different type of trip to the first. This time I joined a cruise ship, the MV Queen Victoria, one of the three ships from the world-renowned Cunard Line.
We departed England sailing south towards warmer waters and calmer seas. Throughout the summer, we called into dozens of ports across many countries.
This book tells the tale of a life at sea, the trials and tribulations of forever being on the clock. Living and working at sea poses a unique set of challenges, where you live and breathe alongside your colleagues. There’s always a countdown to something, and never a moment to rest.
