Christopher Cardona, Cruising Expert
Christopher Cardona, Host & Creator

My name is Christopher Cardona, your host and the creator of TalkingCruise. As seasoned cruise expert with over 18 years in the cruise business, I’ve worked for one of the world’s largest cruise lines, owned and operated a retail cruise travel agency and as an independent travel agent and developed several successful cruise-specific websites and brands.

I am passionate (aka fanatical) about cruising and have cruised on just about every major cruise line to destinations and ports-of-call all over. I literally talk cruise all of the time (to the annoyance of some) and that was the inspiration for creating the show. As a self-proclaimed Cruising Ambassador, my goal is turn land-lubbers into cruisers!
