Journalist Dave Monk (Shipmonk), who was voted last year’s best cruise blogger, has been shortlisted again in the Cruise International Awards 2017.

Dave, who started his blog shipmonk.co.uk in 2013, also runs Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.

The 56-year-old – a journalist since the age of 18 – gave up his job as deputy editor of Britain’s best-read daily newspaper, Metro, last September to concentrate full time on cruise writing.
