Hi I’m Hayley, I have recently joined the Cruise Club UK team and I am loving every minute of my time here. I have spent 11 years in the travel industry from selling cruises to package holidays, but I am back doing what I love best-selling and finding perfect cruise holidays for my customers. We all have such a passion for finding your perfect cruise here at Cruise Club UK. I absolutely love cruising and have been lucky enough to go on many of the cruise lines.
