Hi, I’m Wendy and I’m thrilled to have recently joined the Cruise Club UK team. After spending 15 years in the travel industry I ventured out into the world of training and development where I spent a number of years training and supporting staff in the travel industry to achieve their goals. Booking dream holidays is something I’ve always missed and I’ve wanted to return to what I do best, arranging and booking holidays for customers. Well here I am and I’m loving every single second of it, the team at Cruise Club UK have such passion about cruising and customer service is our priority. I love cruising and I’ve been very fortunate to cruise with a variety of different cruise lines to destinations such as Far East, Middle East, Alaska, Europe and Caribbean. I love the fact that you can see some many different destinations in one holiday and when you look at the cost and what’s included its usually better value than a hotel based holiday, what’s not to like? Fantastic service, food and entertainment all in one place and I’m amazed at some of the fantastic offers that are available with some of the cruise lines such as free drinks, on board credit, speciality dining and internet and they are amazing for families who have children and quite often work out better value than a family package holiday. Give me a call today on 0161 798 2570, I look forward to helping you in arranging your dream cruise. Thank you for taking the time to read all about me and I look forward to helping you soon and sharing some of my own lovely cruising experiences with you.
