Personal Background

Why GoCruise & Travel witH


I am Barry, thanks for taking the time to check out our cruise website to see what we have to offer cruisers to help you find that perfect holiday.

We have a particular passion themed events at sea, either for events being arranged/organised by the cruise lines themselves… or creating bespoke group events for 20 to 500 people, these may be Families (weddings, anniversary celebrations etc), Rotary, U3A, Church Groups or groups with a shared hobby or interest such as ballroom/line dancing, food and wine, music or even games such as the annual bridge cruises that take place.

We can of course also help with general advice and cruise holiday bookings on any of the worlds cruise lines and ships from the small specialist River operators all the way through to the larger Ocean ships and everything in between.

We are also able to give advice and guidance on options for extra tours which are very popular with our clients as pre/post-cruise holiday extensions to make the most of the areas visited.

Our favourite cruise ship..

Hazel and I love Cunard and QM2 in particular for our own holidays... we just love the quality, space onboard and service levels all served up in traditional British style.

Star Clippers are another favourite for the ambience of sailing under sail on a tall ship. It's an experience we always enjoy.

When we have our family with us, we love to sail on Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian ships in the Caribbean for the fun, sun and beach destinations and try and get to enjoy a week or two most Januarys as a way to relax after the hectic Christmas/New Year period and also escape the January blues.

Next on our wish list is...

I am sure you are no different to my wife Hazel and myself... we have lots of places we wish to visit for the first time... and as many we wish to revisit. My bucket list is ever growing and includes cruises to:

  • Easter Island
  • Rio (at Carnival Time)
  • Alaska with Rocky Mountaineer tour
  • The Nile with AmaWaterways
  • Asian RIvers with Pandaw
  • World Cruise on Hazel's retirement ( a few years off yet she keeps reminding me!)

Why choose to book with us?

We are passionate about cruising and travel in general and the team and I offer a personal service that non-specialist cruise travel agents can't provide.

As Cruise Ambassadors/Agents we won't cost you a penny more than what you'd pay booking directly with a cruise line, but we do add real value, with special promotional offers, knowledge (good and bad) about ships, destinations and travel in general that we share with our clients to ensure you get the right cruise holiday for you, and all covered with peace of mind in hand through our ABTA and ATOL licences.

Once you have an idea of what you are looking for email us via the contact forms on the site, or via email at, or you can call us on 0121 405 0001 and let my team and I help you find that perfect cruise for you and your friends and family.
