The Origins of EatSleepCruise
We are Don and Heidi Bucolo, also known as “DB & The Princess”, the husband and wife team behind EatSleepCruise.com. If you are looking for information on all things cruise related, you have come to the right place! Our love for cruising, and each other, began back in 2006 when we started planning our first cruise together on Royal Caribbean’s Legends of the Seas. We have come a long way since then and want to share everything that we have learned about cruising with you. EatSleepCruise.com is our online home where we discuss all things related to cruising. Here, you will find our detailed cruise ship reviews, shore excursion reviews, guides on ports of call, hotel reviews, travel tips, and the latest cruise news.
After following other message boards and cruise sites for several years, we decided to create a space that was all our own. In late 2014, EatSleepCruise was born as a site that allows us to express our unique approach to cruising and connect with other like-minded travelers who want to “sea the world, one port at a time”. Our goal is to provide you with honest, accurate, and up-to-date information so you can plan the ultimate cruise vacation. We spend a lot of time on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest sharing the details of our trips and articles, so be sure to check us out on social media and say hi. We love to hear from fellow cruisers.
Don, “DB”, loves everything about cruising- the ocean, the food, and the atmosphere. While he may be obsessed with doing extensive amounts of research on ships and all elements of a cruise, Don enjoys sharing his new found knowledge with fellow cruisers. When he is not sailing the high seas, he does whatever his wife tells him to do-it only took 10 years to realize this. While he enjoys blogging about cruises, he is really passionate about launching an upcoming EatSleepCruise podcast.
Heidi, “The Princess”, is a physical therapist by profession, cruise enthusiast at heart, and Princess all the time! Heidi is a self-confessed thrill seeker, obsessive planner, and over packer. She is always looking for the latest and greatest adventures onboard and onshore, enjoys researching top things to do in ports of call, loves dressing up for formal nights, and has you covered with her packing guides.
