Elaine Hutton, Copywriter, P&O Cruises

I always wanted to write and, although I’ve not published a best-seller (yet!), I have enjoyed an exciting career in words. I started out as a regional journalist, writing everything from the sport reports to the weekly horoscopes, and I worked in Internal Communications for The Body Shop International’s figurehead, Anita Roddick, before joining the travel industry as a copywriter with Sunsail Worldwide Sailing Holidays in 1998.

From Competent Crew in Force 4 minus three conditions on the Solent, to gaining my Day Skipper qualification night navigating around Lanzarote, I fell in love with sailing and passed that passion on through aspirational brochure copy, campaigns and web content. As TUI’s Global Copywriter, I wrote for all of their on-the-water brands. As a freelancer for Cunard, I helped launch Queen Mary 2 remastered, the Queen Victoria refit and dived into a sea of stunning worldwide destinations. After three years’ teaching English, I’m delighted with my ‘return to service’ as a new copywriter within the P&O Cruises team of very talented creatives. I can’t wait to get writing and hopefully sailing again – albeit on somewhat bigger ships!

Favourite (relevant) quote: “The cure for everything is salt water: sweat, tears and the sea”.

Austin Rowlands, Copywriter, P&O Cruises

Hi, I’m Austin. Having worked in content writing and journalism for 18 years, I’m truly thrilled at the prospect of being able to utilise my skills and experience as a copywriter at Carnival UK.

I love what I do. I relish the challenge of finding the right story angle, and then crafting engaging copy, to best promote a key message with a target audience. I look forward to joining the P&O Cruises Marketing Operations team and playing my part in helping this iconic brand become Britain’s # 1 holiday choice.

Outside of work, I’m a keen hiker. I try to go on at least one long hiking holiday every summer, which usually means I spend the start of the autumn with sore legs and blisters – but it’s worth it (honestly).
