About Olivia

Hi, I'm Olivia! Passionate about travel and keen to see as much of the world as possible. I stepped foot on my first ever cruise in September 2021, where I sailed for 6 days on board Silversea's beautiful Silver Moon - you can read all about my experience here.

A few years ago the travel bug bit when I went backpacking around the world and ever since I have been keen to gain as much experience as possible within the travel industry. I graduated from uni with an archaeology degree and therefore I love incorporating historical and archaeological sites into my travels; visiting places like the Colosseum in Rome and Angkor Wat in Cambodia have been some of my favourite travel moments.

I also love reading, writing, and keeping active outdoors - you'll often find me on long walks in the countryside or hiking up in the Lake District!

Working at Panache Cruises

I work in the marketing team, creating inspiring travel content for Panache Cruises. I'm the main author for the blog and love sharing tips, tricks, and travel advice. I love being a part of such an enthusiastic and hard working team and look forward to learning more about the world of luxury cruising and the incredible opportunities out there in the travel industry.

Favourite Destination

It's hard to choose a favourite destination as the world is just so beautiful! However, one of the most memorable trips I have taken was an expedition to Nicaragua and Honduras, where I hiked up volcanoes and learned to scuba dive on Roatan Island in the Caribbean. I would love to go on an expedition one day where I can travel to more off-the-beaten-track destinations such as these.

My ultimate bucket list trip would be to see the Great Pyramids of Giza. I learned about Ancient Egypt at university and was fascinated by everything to do with the subject, plus it's the only ancient wonder left standing so to see it would be incredible!
