Personal Background

Why GoCruise & Travel witH


My Story

My love of travel began at age 16 with my first overseas holiday to Barbados, residing in a private hilltop villa with a cook, housemaid & pool man all at my disposal. It was certainly a very special introduction into the world of luxury holiday destinations. Thereafter followed various and many European adventures, until at the early age of 20 I went on my 1st unforgettable cruise aboard the MS Caribe, a ship from the Commodore Lines, sailing around the beautiful Caribbean Islands. I instantly fell in love with the whole cruising life and realised it was the perfect way to see more of the world whilst being pampered and cocooned in one place, with no packing or unpacking required!  Since those early years my passion for travel has continued to flourish,  my personal travels have taken me to so many parts of the world, including the stunning islands of French Polynesia, the warm watered Islands in the Indian Ocean, USA, Asia, Europe and many many more wonderful destinations!

With my passion for travel and wanderlust well established, I have now began a new chapter as a Business Owner and Travel Specialist with GoCruise & Travel part of the Fred Olsen Travel Ltd group.  Today, that passion for travel, which began as a teenager, allows me to create experiences and memories for my clients, which, like me, will last a lifetime.

My favourite cruise ship..

I could not possibly say what my favourite cruise ship is, as my love of cruising covers so many beautiful, individual examples. From Star Clippers Tall Ships to Private Chartered Motor Yachts and all the ocean liners inbetween. Each and everyone of them is fabulous in their own right & I would jump at the chance to sample all of them :)
