String Vests and Knotted Hankies now Optional!!

Im not sure about you, but one of the things I enjoy about cruising is the formal nights. I love having the chance on a formal night to dust off the tuxedo.

January…….The Bad Month for Cruise?

anthony 1


Always a favourite time of year for me. Its the start of what we call our WAVE period, where just after Christmas clients are ready to book their next cruise holiday. As agents we hunker down after boxing day, working 13 hour days, working on days off and literally not seeing the light of day until around March.
