About me

Welcome to Adventour Begins!

My name is Katarina and I come from Serbia! I have been working in the cruise industry for over eight years and cruising is my huge passion! 

I started as Tour Escort for the French river cruise agency Rivages du Monde, worked as Concierge onboard Viking River Cruises, and as Shore Excursion Staff onboard beautiful Royal Caribbean cruise ships until 2020. 

I’ve had the opportunity to explore hundreds of destinations and dozens of ports of call, which has allowed me to become an expert in cruise ports and port exploration!

In my blog, you’ll find useful, insider information on the ports of call worldwide, travel advice, money-saving tips, packing lists, and I also have a section where I write about cruise ship jobs and ship life! I am the creator of “Mediterranean Cruise Port Guide” and YouTube channel @AdventourBegins.

I hope you will enjoy my blog and don’t forget to follow me on social media for fresh content!
