Dear Cathy,

This week on Departures Lounge, our Virtual Travel Talk Series, we will be embarking on an adventure to the end of the earth, Antarctica! Our special guest Kristin Erz has just returned from a fascinating journey to Antarctica on the world's first hybrid electric cruise ship and is excited to share her personal photos and reflections of her trip of a lifetime!

We have changed the format so you no longer have to login to zoom to watch our show. You now will access through our Departures Travel Facebook Live page. You do not need to have a Facebook account to watch. It will not show until 4:00 pm so don't be alarmed if you see a blank screen until just after 4:00!

Kristin started her career in the travel industry in 2006 working as an Assistant Cruise Director. She was the master of line dancing, napkin folding, and game show hosting all while cruising the world!

In 2009, she transitioned back onto land and became an Independent Travel Consultant.

Continuing with her passion for cruising, she joined Kensington Tours selling small ship, niche experiences, including expeditions and private yacht charters; a role that would ultimately guide her career path. Kristin spent time in business development roles with various travel companies before the opportunity of a lifetime presented itself – Sales Director for Canada with Hurtigruten, World Leader in Exploration Travel.

Today her role is no small feat, spending 75% of her time away from home inspiring and sharing her love for expedition cruising with Canadian Travel Partners and mutual guests.
