Ashley has spent more than 15 years writing about cruises. With nearly 70 sailings under her belt, she brings expertise that runs the gamut from well-known cruise lines like Royal Caribbean and Carnival to more obscure river and expedition brands. You can find some of her other work -- which includes thousands of ship reviews, industry news pieces, and planning and tips features -- on Cruise Critic, Cruise.blog, USA Today, the Associated Press, NBC News, the Miami Herald and Huffington Post.
Now that she's joined TPG, she spends her spare time learning all she can about points and miles (and earning them with her shiny, new Amex Platinum and United Club Infinite cards). She also enjoys cats, lawn gnomes, CrossFit, pizza and musical theater.
Favorite city: London.
Where to next: the Galapagos.
