Since starting this business 10 years ago my passion for cruising has got stronger and stronger. With the help of our partners training and other professional organisations, such as CLIA, my knowledge of cruising is well established. Everyday is a learning day in travel. This helps me understand my clients requirements and guide them the best way possible. I am a firm believer that your time is precious and it's up to me to unlock that cruise holiday for you.
Although many cruise ships are designed and perfected to their client’s requirements there is no good or bad cruise ship on my list. They are all fabulous and all do a sterling job. My favourite ship is Cunard's Queen Mary 2. Technically she is not a cruise ship but an Ocean Liner. Her architect, Stephen Payne a veteran of 40 ships, purposely designed her for the North Atlantic. Her design is one to marvel as well as her safety features, one being the extra defence at the bow, protecting the ship from any rogue waves. As you enter the ship for the first time you feel that you have stepped back in time to the golden era of sailing. Classic she is, as well as comfortable with many first amenities such as the biggest library on any ship and a purposely built observatory together with an astronomy show for all star gazers on board. Like for like she will meet all kinds of luxury benchmarks, she is modest and affordable to the regular cruiser. One important aspect that she has, again the only on any “cruise” ship. She has capacity on an upper deck, with exercise area, for those passengers who want to take their K-9's on a transatlantic voyage from Southampton to New York.
Only on a cruise voyage can I undertake some of my travel destinations. Transiting the Panama Canal and visiting Cuba. Both feature heavy on many bucket lists and with the planning of our dedicated cruise partners I can do both on one sailing. Both feature different experiences which can’t be matched on any brochure.

Having the knowledge and tools for inside access we take out the tedious task of you web surfing all day, which can be tedious and non-productive.

Just returned home from Paris with my wife. We would both like to say how much we enjoyed ourselves, the hotel was 1st class & organised trips were very good. We would both also like to say a big thank you to your rep ANDY, who was absolutely brilliant. He looked after us all, was very informative and attentive. He is an asset to your company.
I was on this trip with my husband and 2 friends and would just like to say how much we loved the whole experience. However we are all agreed that the guide Suzanne made this trip exceptional. Hopefully we will be booking with you again.
