Personal Background

Why GoCruise & Travel witH

Helen & Ross

Who doesn’t like to travel – to places old and new, to enjoy the familiar and the novel……..                      

There are no more exhilarating places for me to people watch than stations, airports and cruise ports, wondering where people are going and why - so is it any surprise I have been a Travel Agent for over 10 years?

Before that I worked in the NHS – the largest service industry in the UK, so it was a small step in business ethos to make the move. Since then I have become a dedicated cruise specialist and CLIA Cruise Master and I continue to take every opportunity offered to learn and update myself with the fast moving world of holidays – be it cruises, touring holidays, expeditions or just great hotels for a well earned break.

I can book land based holidays, cruises, flights, pre and post holiday accommodation, transfers, car hire and tours or excursions - in any combination. Based in the north, I also look out for great deals on Northern departures, worldwide.

My favourite cruise ship..

I don't have an overall favourite cruise line or ship – it very much depends on what, where, when, how and why I am cruising. I might hop on a Croisi river ship for 4 nights in Venice, a large ocean ship like Norwegian Epic or Harmony of the Seas if I was going to spend a lot of time at sea (as there is so much to do and explore), an Oceania itinerary for great food with my foodie friends and Azamara Quest for romantic evenings ashore in iconic Mediterranean ports. I would really love to sail down the Mississippi or the Mekong with AMA Waterways and experience other European rivers like the Douro and the Elbe.

Next on my wish list is...

Cruising makes travelling to multiple destinations at the same time so easy - you only have to unpack once! I am sure, like me, that you have a 'Places to Sail to Before You Die' list - I have ticked off some of mine, like sailing into New York past the Statue of Liberty on a Cunard Transatlantic cruise, cruising into the Caribbean sunset on Celebrity Eclipse, sailing down the Rhine amidst the autumn colours and mooring up in Monte Carlo or indeed the centre of other cities on a river cruise ship. But what about traversing the Panama Canal with Holland America, cruising the Inside Passage in Alaska with Princess Cruises, experiencing Antarctica with Silversea or sailing to the Danube Delta and the Black Sea.

Next on my list is a cruise in Alaska with some time in Vancouver and a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer – any other takers?

Why choose to book with me?

There really is a cruise for every itinerary, every interest group and every budget. With my extensive knowledge, especially of cruises and the fact that GoCruise & Travel is an independent company (a subsidiary of Fred Olsen Travel), I have total flexibility to match and tailor make cruises and indeed all holidays especially for you.

Go Cruise & Travel is fully ABTA and ATOL bonded so your money is safe with us.

I pride myself on a truly personal service and treat your holiday plans as if they were my own:

My ‘Client Journey’ with you starts at the enquiry stage, moves through suggestions (if required) and quotes, continues through the booking process, then being on hand to personally answer any queries you may have, at any time, pre (and post holiday), next checking pre departure information and wishing you ‘Bon Voyage’ to finally welcoming you home after a great experience. In other words – at every step of the way (I would even stow away in your luggage if you’d like me to!)
