About Me

Who is The Cruising Dodo?

My name is Sylvia and I am the girl behind The Cruising Dodo. I live in a mountain town surrounded by the largest ponderosa pine forest in the world. I am an avid cruiser, traveler and tea drinker. I am also a wife, a mother, and a university graduate (Master’s of Health Care Administration & Bachelor’s of Public Affairs and Policy Management). I can fluently speak French, Creole, and English.

What is The Cruising Dodo ?

The Dodo is an extinct bird that was endemic to the island of Mauritius. I was born and raised on this tropical island and even though I lived in Canada and recently made the United States my home, I wanted something personal that represents my background.

Why The Cruising Dodo?

I believe life is about collecting moments thus, I started the Cruising Dodo to share the memories I make around the world with my husband and daughter one port of call at a time. So far I completed 12 cruises and visited over 35 countries. I cruised with Royal Caribbean International, Princess Cruises,  Norwegian Cruise Line, Carnival Cruise Line and Disney Cruise Line.
