About Me

Hello there, I’m Tom Harding and I have been in the Cruise and Travel industry for about 10 years. Cruising has always been a passion of mine ever since I was little. I love the elegance and sophistication that comes with cruising and to be able to see lots of places with only unpacking once is a big bonus!

From when I was on Britannia.

I think now will are at the right time to say it’s the ‘Golden Age of Cruising’, anyone can do it and once you do your hooked! Trust me on that and I am sure many will back me up.

I have been working in the general travel industry with a large bulk being based around the Cruise sector. After spending 5 years mainly working for a large independent in the South, now I decided to focus more on one sector, and what better than something I feel so passionate about and I have been with Cruise.co.uk for almost 5 years now and never looked back..

Someone once asked me if I was a Cruise geek and I suppose my answer is ‘Yes’. I am like that person that buys a newspaper and skips the news straight to the sports page, however mines a Travel magazine and I skip straight the the Cruise parts.

I have been lucky enough to see and sail on many ships, from MSC, Seabourn, Oceania, Silversea, Regent, Fred Olsen, Celebrity, P&O, Cunard, Princess, Royal Caribbean, Ocean Village, NCL, Island Cruises and many more. You can see all the ships I have been on under the ‘Ships I have been on’ tab above.

Cruising is a big passion and hobby of mine, as I am sure it is yours. So we will get along like a house on fire. If there’s anything else you would like to know please do get in touch on 0800 408 6143 or drop me an email tomh@cruise.co.uk
