After working on ships for 4 years and always being asked what it’s like to live and work at sea , my cousin and I decided one night ,after spending a night of drinking too much red wine, that it was time for me to start my own blog! I slept on the idea and the next day I woke up with (not just a stinkin hangover!) but so many ideas on what I wanted my blog to look like and what kind of things I could blog about….. two days later Annabeesings was created!
I started my blog page in October 2017 and I am really enjoying finding ways to keep my page updated with posts and photos of my travels every day! (even though the lack of WiFi at sea is making it very difficult!)
Ive been singing as long as I can remember !
My dad played in a band for years and years and I have been so lucky to have great music rammed into ma lugs since day one!…. Stevie Wonder, James Taylor, Earth Wind and Fire, The Beatles, Bob Marley, Etta James, Antonio Forccione, Gregory Porter, Keb Mo, Bonnie Rait…. just to name a few!
Singing is not just my career but it’s my hobby and I love it!
“Do what you love and you’ll not work a day in your life”
Here’s a picture of me performing at my first ever gig, aged 5😂
I started working as a professional vocalist with Carnival Cruise Line on December 2013 and since then I have been lucky enough to sing with 7 different bands on 7 of Carnival’s beautiful ships:
After performing and travelling together with Chris for 5 years, he popped the question in July 2018 at which stage we then decided to become an acoustic duo together and have recently finished our first contract on The Carnival Horizon as Blind Summit Duo.
Before working on ships I spent 5 years working overseas in the summer months for various different company’s performing in different touring shows. I was lucky enough to work in Cyprus, Fuerteventura, Menorca and the beautiful island of Majorca for 3 summers.
My love for travel has grown so much and I hope you enjoy reading stories of my journey singing on cruise ships!
