Cruise Maven

By travelanswerman | August 28, 2010

I recently added the Cruise Maven to our Blogroll! She is definitely an exceptional addition to our list of world class travelers and a good friend! Take a moment to read her Bio and check her blog out soon!  www.cruisemaven.com

Sherry Laskin, aka Cruise Maven, has been in love with cruising for over four decades.  As a very small child, she crossed the Pacific with her parents from Los Angeles to Honolulu aboard the 18,000 ton SS Matsonia.  These days, at least two months every year are spent at sea, reviewing and experiencing many cruise lines and their ships.

Sherry is a freelance travel writer and photographer.   Her articles have appeared in many travel industry publications such as Travel Trade, Travel Weekly and Travel and Leisure News.  Online media include Travel Market Report, Examiner.com, Global-Writes and others.   Considered a cruise and travel expert, Sherry has been quoted in frommers.com msnbc.today.comNY Times, Miami Herald and the Sun-Sentinel.  She recently contributed to Frommers Guide to the Greek Islands 2010 and has been a featured guest on CruiseRadio.net.

With an interest in regional food and wine, Sherry frequently stops to sample the cuisine and try the local wine or beer.  When there is a culinary class en route, you will probably find her there, cooking, tasting and shooting photos.

An avid “surface traveler” since 1994, Sherry has traversed much of the world without setting foot on an airplane!  Her “if there’s a port I can get there” committment has taken her to Manaus-Brazil (1,000 miles on the Amazon River), St. Petersburg-Russia, Carthage-Tunisia and most recently nearly 3,000 miles on the Danube, Main and Rhine rivers from Bulgaria to Amsterdam. Getting to Europe simply means the inevitable transatlantic crossing.  And exploring the heartland of Europe means traveling the rivers and rails. 

Sherry is a member of the Society of Professional Journalists and the International Food, Wine and Travel Association.
