About Me

I have worked in the Travel Industry for 30 years, ever since leaving school. My Dad was in the Navy so I guess I get my wanderlust from him. I was a Manager in a successful Travel Agency for 16 years before joining Cruise.co.uk. I am married and have a son who is aged 20 and I live in a small town called Goole, so yes I guess you could call me a genuine Goolie.

I am passionate about what I do. I love to cruise and love to help others find their perfect cruise. I have travelled to many places around the world  and have booked countless cruises and tailor made holidays for customers.

I am a firm believer in treating people as I would want them to treat me. I am always professional but friendly at the same time. I believe that good service starts with the first call and continues until after you return, so no question is too small or silly, just ask.  Don’t take my word for it read the comments left by my customers and make your own mind up.

Why would I recommend a cruise… You can see so many different things and places on one holiday without having to unpack and move. Your hotel moves with you. What other type of holiday allows you to immerse yourself in culture one day, soak on beach the next and perhaps go white water rafting the day after that.

Sounds like you?

Then why not give me a call. I am always happy to answer questions and welcome new customers.
