Sue Bryant


Sue started out on trade magazines at Haymarket Publishing before going freelance. As well as The Times, she’s written for The Daily Telegraph, Sunday Times Travel magazine, National Geographic Traveller, Junior, Travel Weekly and Insight Guides. She edited the experiential travel magazine Journeys for five years.


Sue has always had the travel bug, having lived in France as a student and backpacked across Africa before training as a journalist. She discovered cruising by accident, after being offered a job editing a cruise magazine, and quickly became hooked on ocean and river travel. Since then, cruising has taken her to Antarctica, the Galapagos, Patagonia, Panama, India, Raja Ampat, Greenland and Myanmar, although the Greek islands will always be her first love.

On the bucket list

To explore Antarctica in more depth; to return to Raja Ampat for the extraordinary marine life and to spend more time in Svalbard looking for polar bears. Also, to sail to St Kilda in the outer Hebrides, simply because it’s so wild.
