The World’s Youngest Cruise Blogger?

A few days ago, we discovered there's a boy who is surely the youngest cruise blogger in the world. His name is Theo Robson and he is the grandson of close friends of ours, and for some reason cruising is his passion, to the point that he writes blogs about his cruise interests.

And he is 11.

Theo’s website is called “This Kid Knows Cruises!” and while he doesn’t write every day — there is something called school, after all — he clearly spends a lot of time researching his subjects. For example, Theo can tell you the 55 biggest cruise ships in the world and all their vital statistics (gross tonnage, length, how many passengers, number of staterooms). He can tell you which cruise lines are best at responding to an 11-year-old who’s looking for information (Seabourn is his first choice). He can provide you with links to cruise lines and webcams that involve cruise ships.

Theo started down this path when he was just 18 months old. That’s when he first went on a cruise ship. That’s when the business of cruising began to get into his blood, which should tell cruise lines not to dismiss the value of having kids, even little kids, on their ships.

This kid is bound to be a cruiser for life.

Helpful Heald The Cruise Director

The world's best-known cruise director is Carnival's John Heald, who gets a kick out of shocking his readers with sometimes crude stories and borderline language, or borderline language and crude stories.

And, just like the papparazzi who keep taking and selling private pictures of public people for publication, readers keep going back for more.

Sometimes, there is good reason to go back. One such blog is a beneficial read for everyone, told in typical Healdelese, which makes it not only helpful and interesting but also entertaining. 

Let's put it this way:

If you're not intrigued by his tale of a "stunning girl from latvia with huge breasts" then skip it. If that's salacious enough to command your attention, click on John Heald's blog and you'll get the whole story.

At the very least, you'll chuckle.
