Recently retired, we have spent over 60 years between ourselves as police officers and as you can imagine we have dealt with all aspects of life, sometimes from the sublime to the ridiculous.
To enable us to switch off from the excitement and rigours of a job we both loved doing, we looked to holidays as a means of respite and at times escapism. Over the past twenty five years and whilst bringing up two sons, cruising began to feature more prominently in our holiday plans as the years went by.
The reasons for this were often due to experiencing repetitive types of land based holidays and more often than not the associated expensive costs of a family staying in a hotel.
Together as a family we have been very fortunate to be able to cruise to places we never imagined we could, whether it be along the beautiful and mystic Norwegian Fjords, sampling the temptations of the Greek islands such as Mykonos and Santorini, cruising the Mexican coast, island hopping around the Caribbean, spending Christmas and New Year around the Hawaiian Islands or the emotional grandeur of sailing into Venice to the sound of classical music whilst sipping a cocktail and passing within feet of St Mark’s Square.
We want to take our experiences of cruising and share them with you, offering honest and accurate opinions and advice. If you have children and they are unsure about cruising, then let them ask our sons anything they wish. Believe you me, if there was anyone who was going to be able to promote the benefits of cruising, it would be our two boys.
Quite a few people say ‘Well you won’t get me on a ship’… well my answer is give it a try as you may be surprised. I have often known people like this to be suddenly bitten by the cruise bug and as a result now not do any other type of holiday.
A cruise is what you yourself wants to make out of it, to do as much or as little as you wish. It is not just all about filling yourself with food, though you can do if you so desire! There are many healthy dining options available as well as places to stretch out or do a few laps of the walk track or lengths of the varied pools before dinner.
There is such a wide and diverse range of both ships and their associated cruise itineraries. There is something out there for everyone and we are here at hand to help you choose the right cruise. People work hard all year round and we want to make sure that you get the best from your well earned money.
We offer a very personal one to one service and the reason we do this is to develop trust and belief in our brand. Cruising is not just a dream, it can easily with the right guidance become a reality. 1.79 million People in the UK cruise or have cruised yet nearly ten times that amount have indicated that they would like to cruise in the future. You may already be part of that number but if not, and you want to add that number, you will soon be able to share the secrets that we have all held these past years. So if you are tempted or just simply interested, then pick up the phone and make that call or send us an email and we will respond to you as quickly as possible.
