Joanie, Tony and Sam

GoCruise with Joanie, Tony and Sam Blakey

Travel is our passion and between us, Joanie and I have over 70 years experience within the travel industry. We have both held senior positions within both retail travel and tour operating with some of the U.K's most well known companies and, for the past 19 years, we have operated our own specialist online cruise agency. In 2011, after a gap year travelling around Australia, our youngest son Sam joined us and has added a youthful insight and drive to our business.

We specialise in ocean & river cruise and have first hand experience of numerous cruise lines. We are members of CLIA the association of international cruise lines and we were delighted in 2017 to be recognised by CLIA and receive a national award as the best River Cruise Newcomer.

Our favourite cruise ship..

Our love affair with cruising started in 2000 when we first sailed on the Star Clipper around the Grenadine Islands. Star Clippers will always retain a special place in our hearts and we have now sailed on all three tall ships on many occasions. We are proud to be one of their top agents in the U.K and have our own dedicated Star Clipper website that can be viewed here.

Having said that it is impossible to choose a favourite ship or cruise line, every vessel has its own unique style and character and the important thing for us is to help you choose the ship that is perfect for you.

Next on our wish list is...

Our wish lists are quite varied and eclectic , Joanie would like to experience a transatlantic crossing on a tall ship, Tony would love to cruise onboard the Scenic Eclipse with its own helicopter and submarine offering incredible and unique guest experiences. Top of Sam's still to do list is a cruise to see The Northern Lights.

Why choose to book with us?

We have a simple philosophy, to offer all our clients unbiased & independent advice to help them plan and enjoy the cruise that is perfect for them. We believe that our first hand experience of cruising in Europe, The Caribbean, The Far East & Asia means that we can offer a level of service and expertise unrivalled by most other agents.

So whatever your travel needs please contact us and we would be delighted to help you plan your next travel adventure.
