Jason Leppert is a San Diego-based cruise expert with more than 85 sailings under his belt and a fresh, youthful perspective on the industry. He has been cruising since before he was 2 years old, thanks to his parents’ shared passion for traveling and their desire to experience all journeys together as a family. In return, he now appreciates the chance to share cruising with them, along with his extended family and friends.
When not sailing, Jason attends and volunteers at his Christian church and enjoys catching up on the latest films and TV shows weekly, visiting Disneyland monthly, and attending Comic-Con International yearly.
As equal parts writer, photographer and videographer, Jason is the founding editor of PopularCruising.com and producer of the Popular Cruising video podcast and YouTube channel (youtube.com/PopularCruising). Besides the Travel Channel, he also contributes to Porthole magazine, Destination Vacation magazine, the U-T San Diego newspaper, Onboard.com, MiceChat.com, and the Cruise Radio, Cruize Cast and Weekend Travel Show audio podcasts. Jason's work on TravelChannel.com includes Dance on the High Seas with Holland America, Celebrity Cruises Offers New Top Chef at Sea Program and other features.
