I am a National Award winning, ABTA bonded and ATOL protected, independent ocean, river and expedition cruise specialist living and working in Bournemouth and Poole.
I also specialise in group travel and am a Director of AGTO - the Association of Group Travel Organisers.
When you contact me you will be dealing direct with someone who has over 25 years’ experience of cruising, who has taken over 50 ocean, river and expedition cruise holidays during that time with a vast range of different operators.
As a successful and respected cruise specialist I pride myself in offering my clients a level of knowledge, professionalism, independence, courtesy and quality of service rarely found in the cruise industry today.
It may be old-fashioned but I always treat clients as I would wish to be treated myself with decency, openness, honesty, discretion and respect.
I have direct first-hand knowledge and experience of the following:
Ultra Luxury operators including: Regent Seven Seas, Seabourn, Silversea, Crystal, Tauck, Uniworld and Sea Dream Yacht Club.
Upper Premium operators including: Oceania Cruises, Azamara Cruises, AMA Waterways, APT, Scenic and Avalon Waterways.
Premium operators including: Cunard, Celebrity, Holland America Line, Disney Cruise Line, Swan Hellenic, Viking Ocean and River cruises, Emerald Waterways, Amadeus by Luftner and European Waterways.
Mainstream operators including: P&O, Princess, Royal Caribbean, Fred Olsen, Norwegian Cruise Line, Voyages of Discovery, Saga, Cruise and Maritime, MSC Cruises, Costa Cruises, Carnival Cruises, Riviera Travel, Croisi Europe and Shearings Holidays.
Specialist operators including: Hurtigruten and Voyages to Antiquity.
As well as advising both couples and single travellers, much of my time is devoted to offering specialist advice, guidance and support to GTOs and groups, clubs and societies.
Whether large and small, formal and informal or simply a group of friends who enjoy travel or those who share a common interest such as music, golf, art, literature, history, gardening, dancing etc. and wish to learn more about the delights of ocean and river cruising for groups.
My office hours are generally between 9am to 8pm on weekdays and between 9am and 5pm at the weekends. Outside of these hours I have an answer machine – please use it, leave me a brief message and I will call you back as soon as possible.
Please Note: If you would prefer I am happy to visit you in your own home by prior appointment in order to discuss your future cruise requirements.
Anyone wishing to access the specialist products and services I offer can either call me Martin Hay for a free, no obligation discussion about their future cruise requirements on (01202) 027559 or email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
