Renee Ruggero is Cruise Travel Mama. She has been cruising since 1999, first as a crewmember and today as a passenger.

Renee’s travels have taken her to over 70 countries with more than 1,600 days on cruise ships.

Renee cruises full time with her husband who is a Captain for a major cruise line. She’s learned to balance a writing career with traveling and raising their twin daughters (who have spent over 700 days onboard cruise ships and they’re only 19 years old).
