Linda Garrison went on her first cruise in in high school and has been hooked on cruising ever since. She has cruised over 150 times and spent more than 1100 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 travelers don't realize just how much of the world can been seen on a cruise!

Experience

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 was responsible for the About.com Cruises from July 2000 to May 2017, when the content was transferred to TripSavvy.com. She continues to contribute to TripSavvy and lives in the Atlanta area.

Education

Linda has an MBA in accounting so she understands the joy of analyzing cruise vacation options and the importance of getting great value for your vacation dollars.

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 TripSavvy.com visitor with all the information necessary to plan and enjoy the cruise and destination experience as much as I do."
