Personal Backgroundread more ↓
Hi there. My name is Sarah Thelin and I’d like to welcome you to GoCruise, together with my husband Bjarne. I’ve been passionate about travel since I was a child when I remember travelling to Switzerland in a packed car to visit relatives. After school I became a travel agent and really caught the travel bug! After working and training for about 4 years I went to work for Celebrity Cruises and was astonished by the quality and size of some of the ships!!
As a family, including our two boys, we’ve always enjoyed taking the opportunity to travel as much as possible. While our boys were young I worked at their school and later even did a degree in Theology & Music as a 40yr old student!! However the travel bug never left, and I’ve been delighted to return to the industry.
I love working with people, and finding the perfect holiday for someone right down to the last detail fills me with great pleasure. We are so excited to share with you a wide range of cruises and river cruises, which mix the benefits of fantastic facilities on some beautiful ships with visits to fabulous destinations along the way.
My husband Bjarne has spent the last 28 years in business and marketing mainly in the TV advertising and research industry, travelling to some different places around the world each year as part of his duties. Together we work really well as a team and look forward to sharing with you and helping to plan your perfect cruise holiday.close ↑
Why GoCruise with Sarah & Bjarneread more ↓
Having experienced something yourself in different circumstances makes a world of difference to considering what others may enjoy. Bjarne and I were fortunate to honeymoon aboard what was then one of Celebrity Cruises newest ships the ‘Zenith’. I visited other Celebrity ships including the launch of the ‘Century’. We’ve also sailed aboard Royal Caribbean’s ‘Sovereign of the Seas’ with our two teenage boys, and have experienced the luxurious surroundings of the Cunard ‘Queen Victoria’.
Our desire is to find the perfect ship for you, not just sell you the latest offering. Everyone is individual and there’s a huge range of cruise ships out there and we want to find the perfect experience for you! We aim to provide personal service so you know you’re not just a number on someone’s paperwork.
For a special celebration, a family holiday with little ones, the World cruise you’ve always dreamed of, or your next adventure we are best placed to find the Cruise for you.
Whether you have sailed many times, or never before, we can get you all the information and make the arrangements for a holiday tailored to you.
We’re delighted to represent GoCruise with the backing of Fred Olsen and access to some of the best arrangements with the whole travel industry’s propositions and resources. As part of the GoCruise operation we’re ABTA and ATOL bonded which gives peace of mind all round.close ↑
Cruise Experienceread more ↓
Our first cruise experience was aboard the Zenith –now owned by Pullmantur Cruises. As a young couple we were blown away by the personal service we received on board from our cabin staff to the Sommelier at dinner, we were always made to feel totally welcome. From the time of the launch of the Celebrity ‘Century’ we knew that the development of Cruise ships would be a continuing story.
To celebrate 20 years of Marriage, 2 years ago we took our teenage boys away on Royal Caribbean Cruises ‘Splendour of the Seas’A wealth of activities on board for all ages, a dining experience to suit every mood, coupled with entertainment available all day from attentive staff gave us all a truly memorable holiday – one of the best family holidays we’ve had!. A new port every day with time for relaxing at sea meant our trip left us wanting more. Doing as much or as little as you like each day, even the teenagers were catered for and kept happy. The mixture of style, comfort and wonderful service alongside being able to visit multiple destinations in one holiday - while only having to unpack once - is a huge benefit of cruising.
We hope one day to experience a completely different cruise to the Antarctic circle or Iceland with one of the smaller ships from Hurtigruten or the Galapagos Islands with Celebrity ‘Xpedition’. We’d also be extremely happy to experience one of the Star Clipper Tall Ships around the Caribbean!! Our passion for travel will hopefully take us to lots of new places and give us plenty of opportunity to create more memories with family and friends. Why don’t you join us in exploring the world!close ↑
