Harry Martin
Harry Martin was bitten by the cruise bug in 2000, when his mom challenged him after taking her first cruise on the Legend of the Seas. Raving about the experience, she said to Harry, "When you're older, you can go on a cruise, too." Not wishing to waste any time, Harry booked his first cruise within 3 months at the age of 38.

Now with 14 cruises under his belt, Harry acts as the moderator for both the Gay and Lesbian Cruising discussion board and the Mexico destination message center here at Cruisemates.com. He has traveled on a host of lines, including Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess and Norwegian.

A resident of San Diego, California, Harry began his career as a newspaper reporter and editor with a number of local publications. After leaving his last post as editor of three twice-weekly newspapers, he embarked into the field of freelance writing, penning articles for the San Diego Union, Rancho Magazine and a host of smaller publications. With the downturn in editing and writing opportunities, Harry switched to the family business of real estate. He's been a licensed California Realtor with RE/MAX in northern San Diego since 1995.

Along with his partner of 9 years, Art, Harry revels in joy and excitement each time he walks the gangway to his newest cruise destination, always coming back with stories and photos to share with the Cruisemates.com family.
