Win a small ship cruise and live like a travel writer! co-founders Heidi Sarna and Ted Scull have 50 years combined experience as travel writers. And all along, they’ve had envious fans, friends, and neighbors ask them about their adventures and their lives as travel writers.

“I’ve been very fortunate to pursue a career that affords me the opportunity to do two things I love so much — writing and traveling,” Heidi says.

Yes, it’s true, travel writing can be glamorous, loads of fun, and a great way to see the world. Sure, there are also pesky deadlines, persnickety editors and writers’ block, but you know what they say, “it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it!”

And don’t just take their word for it. is giving one lucky winner a chance to experience life as a travel writer by giving away a small-ship Caribbean cruise for two with one of their favorite lines, Island Windjammers. Although it is not required, Heidi and Ted are giving the winner the opportunity to work with one of their staff writers to pen an article about their experience and have it published on

If the winner isn’t a confident writer, no worries, they can take pictures and discuss the trip with a writer who will help them tell their story.

“We’re thrilled to share the small-ship cruise experience we’re so passionate about with one of our readers,” Ted adds.

Heidi and Ted just love small-ship cruises under 300 passengers, especially the most wonderfully off-beat “quirky” ones that are anything but mainstream. They look forward to readers from all over the world entering the contest and subscribing to their free monthly newsletter for a chance to win the cruise … and try their hand at travel writing too!!
