Jon Fleming’s combination of personal experience and historical knowledge, plus an entertaining presentation style has made him very sought after in the cruise industry. He has sailed on almost 100 cruises worldwide including complete round-the-world itineraries.
Over the last six years, Jon has lectured on over 250 cruise destinations across Europe (the Baltic, the Eastern and Western Mediterranean, and the British Isles), and worldwide (including the Caribbean, South America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Australasia and the Pacific). He has an informal and humorous lecture style that aims to make history interesting, accessible and relevant for his audience, without bombarding them with dates and facts.
Jon was born in London, and studied Modern History at York University, one of the most prestigious universities in the United Kingdom. After university he pursued a successful career in marketing, before deciding to get out of the rat race and devote himself to travel full-time either by cruise ship, or at the other end of the luxury scale, in his beloved camper van with his wife Tracy
His interest in travel was sparked by a two month train trip around Europe, when he was 18, and he has been looking for excuses to travel ever since! He has travelled extensively throughout the world, visiting over 110 countries in the process (the number is growing all the time).
