Personal Background

Why GoCruise & Travel witH

Martin

I am a National Award winning, ABTA bonded and ATOL protected, independent ocean, river and expedition cruise specialist living and working in Bournemouth and Poole. I also specialise in group travel. 

When you contact me you will be dealing direct with someone who has over 25 years experience of cruising, who has taken over 50 ocean, river and expedition cruise holidays during that time with a vast range of different operators.

As a successful and respected cruise specialist I pride myself in offering my clients a level of knowledge, professionalism, independence, courtesy and quality of service rarely found in the cruise industry today. 

It may be old-fashioned but I always treat clients as I would wish to be treated myself with decency, openness, honesty, discretion and respect.

My favourite cruise ship..

I cannot possible name one favourite cruise ship, destination, or experience,   but I can tell you:

  • I favour small ships over large ships.
  • I appreciate space, quality, inclusivity and value for money.
  • I recognise that luxury means different things to different people.
  • I believe in exploring and discovering new destinations rather than always  returning to the same old familiar destinations.
  • I realise that some destinations are best explored either on a luxury train journey or an escorted touring holiday.

Next on my wish list is...

Over the next 18 months Wendy and I plan to:

  • Fly to Atlanta pick up a car and go exploring the beautiful Smoky Mountains around Ashville, before heading to the coast to revisit three of the finest cities on the east coast - Charleston, Savannah and St Augustine before finishing up spending time relaxing one of the finest  upscale beach resorts in North America - Hilton Head Island.
  • Fly to Denver before joining an 18 day escorted touring holiday exploring the many awe-inspiring national parks of the mid-west before flying home from Phoenix, and
  • Fly to Boston, enjoy this great city before picking up a car and driving down to Cape Cod for a few days exploring the likes of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket before returning to Boston and embarking on a 12 night luxury cruise exploring many of the finest destinations in both New England and Eastern Canada.

Why choose to book with me?

It may be old-fashioned but I always treat clients as I would wish to be treated myself with decency, openness, honesty, discretion and respect.
