The South West and South Wales' No.1 Cruise Specialists
Cruising is Booming
There is no doubt that cruise is the shining light of the travel industry at the moment, with new ships, major refurbishments and exciting new itineraries for our customers to experience. Cruise in all its guises is booming.
New Cruise Ships
The major cruise lines are introducing a number of new ships. Only last month, Miles was lucky enough to be taken to northern France to visit a ship nearing completion: Royal Caribbean’s new super-size ship, ’Symphony of the Seas’. Miles found the scale of the vessel amazing, and has created a video blog for you to get an impression of this ship, which is coming soon.
As for itineraries, many more exploration cruises are being offered these days and cruise ships are even venturing up rivers. There seems to be no end of places to see and choices to make, from the Arabian Gulf to Antarctica to the Amazon.
A Great Time for Cruise Offers
The incredible increase in capacity obviously requires filling and that makes it a great time to be a cruise customer. Increasing competition always means pricing getting keener. Cruise lines are also offering incentives like drinks packages and on board credit to entice you to book with them. We have sourced a lot of these here, this is only a tiny selection of what we can offer you.
Which Cruise Line?
As an independent agent, we sell every cruise line and every itinerary available. Most importantly, we have a cruise specialist in every shop who can provide the expert advice you need to ensure you are on the right ship with the right itinerary for your needs. I highlight this service because cruise ships are all very different. Some focus on families, others on couples; some big, some small, they all celebrate their differences, so we are always committed to finding the right one for you.
The great news is that we're local to you, and were voted Best Travel Agent in the South West and South Wales in 2017 for the second year running. Our Cruise Specialists are on 15 high streets across the region and at the end of the phone until 10pm. We can discuss cruising in any way that suits you - pop in and see us, make an appointment for a coffee and a chat, call us on 0800 012 4529 or complete our enquiry form and we'll get straight back to you.

Amy Corran, Abergavenny
"Many of you may have seen Princess cruises featured recently on several different TV programmes. ITV’s 'The Cruise', went behind the scenes on the Star Princess, and Jane MacDonald recently took a wonderful voyage along the Californian coast, visiting some of the amazing cities on offer. These programmes have certainly increased the demand for these fantastic cruises."
Amy Hayes, Bath
"Are you an experienced cruiser now looking for something a little more intimate and special? Silversea’s small luxury ships are designed for those who delight in the thrill of discovery in the most lavish surroundings imaginable. All accommodations are spacious, ocean-view suites include butler service, and most have private verandas. The cruises are all-inclusive and include select wines, premium spirits, speciality coffees, as well as bottled water, juices and soft drinks in all bars and lounges plus your own tailored mini bar. I have been lucky enough to travel with Silversea and would love to share my experience with you."
Judy Scott, Cheltenham
"There is something about cruising with Cunard where you step into a timeless world of freedom and possibility. With as much or as little to do as you please. Dress-up for glamorous occasions, or savour intimate moments of delight, learn to fence or write a book, dance the tango or drift off in the blissful spa. The choice is yours, but I can guarantee that whatever you choose you will be surrounded by the first class service and classic atmosphere that Cunard is famous for."
Mandy Shilling, Chepstow
"As a main agent for Saga we are excited about the launch of the new ship, Spirit of Discovery, in summer 2019. She will feature cuisine and levels of service you can expect in the world’s finest boutique hotels and her luxurious world class design heralds a new era for Saga Cruises. Every cabin has a balcony and Spirit of Discovery boasts an array of restaurants from the grand dining room, to oriental and seafood eateries too and the best news is that there are no cover charges for them and they are all included in the price."
Kate Taylor, Cirencester
"Classic and close to home, if you've not sailed through the unforgettable Norwegian fjords you're definitely missing out! Whether it's your first cruise or twenty-first cruise, the undeniable beauty showcased by the Norwegian fjords is not to be missed. Leaving you with breath-taking memories, I'd highly recommend a cruise to the Norwegian fjords at least once in your lifetime."
Joanna Gage, Clifton
"Well known for their river cruises, Viking are also specialists in ocean cruising. Sleek, stylish and built for pleasure, Viking ocean ships set a new standard in on-board Scandi-chic and innovation. Dine in a different restaurant every night for free, enjoy the privacy of your own veranda and lap up the views from the first infinity pool at sea. Everything you need is included in the price. Call myself or one of my colleagues and start planning your Viking Cruise journey."
Tom Mayo, Gloucester
"MSC Cruises is a family-owned company with a seafaring history that spans over three centuries. It’s a passion you can sense from the moment you step on board, from the expertise of the crew to the elegant and innovative design of the ships. They are great for families and offer child reductions up to the age of 17 years so, if you are thinking of taking the children or even the grandchildren they make an excellent choice. They offer sailings from Southampton and fly cruises from Bristol Airport both of which are popular with our customers."
Joanne Greenway, Malmesbury
"There's never been so many amazing cruise destinations available and with this comes the exciting opportunity to visit new up-and-coming places, like Alaska. Alaska's stunning scenery and wondrous wildlife is a true sight to behold. Whether you're an avid explorer or someone who prefers to take a step back and take in the natural wonders around them, an Alaskan cruise is for you! With so many interesting new ports to explore, if you've tried many European cruises, I'd highly recommend trying a cruise to Alaska next."
Clare Hughes, Monmouth
"With some of the most innovative ships in the world, when you sail with Royal Caribbean® you are sailing on board some of the most technologically advanced ships around. Robots mixing your cocktails and cutting-edge entertainment will have you watching in awe."
Hayley Peachey, Nailsworth
"As a main agent for Cruise and Maritime Voyages, we have many customers who return year after year to their ships. Their reputation has been built on great prices, great food and great service. They offer great value for money and have the added convenience of sailing directly from Bristol and Cardiff."
Fiona Fortune, Portishead
"It's becoming an increasingly exciting time to consider cruising. With so many ships now on offer there really is something for everyone. From the more traditional Mediterranean and Baltic cruises, where you can admire the beautiful and traditional European cities, to the more daring cruises where excursions can include anything from relaxing in natural hot springs to kayaking in the freezing waters of the Antarctic, even hiking an active volcano can be on your chosen itinerary. With a new place to discover every day or two, trust me when I say a cruise can make for a truly unforgettable holiday."
Nina Robertshaw, Ross on Wye
"Fred. Olsen Cruises are a firm favourite with our customers and having cruised with them many times myself I can see why. I love the service of the loyal staff on board who even remember my name when I travel."
Katharine Harrison, Taunton
"If you love modern luxury, outstanding service and a choice of inspirational global destination, a Celebrity cruise will be perfect. On the brand new Celebrity Edge, through the latest 3D technology, every detail of the ship is fine-tuned. From the incredible Magic Carpet – the world’s first cantilevered, floating platform that reaches heights of 13 storeys above sea level – to the private plunge pools in the new Edge Villas; the way you cruise will never be the same again."
Sarah Phillips, Wells
"Hurtigruten gives you the opportunity to travel with meaning. Building on its explorer heritage dating back to 1893 its explorations are suited to like-minded people who value learning and personal growth over luxury. The highly-skilled crews enable them to offer nature-based experiences to remote corners of the world. Hurtigruten is a world-leader in sustainable explorer travels in polar regions and its most popular cruises are the Northern Lights Voyages with flights from Bristol and Cardiff."
Heather Muir, Yeovil
"P&O Cruises are always popular with our customers. Ever dreamt of a world cruise? Why not join the new world cruise on Arcadia, but if time doesn’t allow for the whole voyage you can also join one of the sectors. Other great news is that due to popular demand we have more Caribbean fly cruises available with flights from Cardiff. Whichever cruise you choose with P&O, we have a Specialist who can offer first hand expert advice."
