What should I pack?

The clothes you pack for your cruise should be relevant to the destinations you visit so consider what the weather will be like in your ports of call at the time of year you are visiting.

Fantastic service

My consultant was Amy Darbyshire and I feel like I won the jackpot. Nothing was too much trouble. Lots of ideas, options, price cues etc The service was incredible. If Amy promised to call or email information it happened. I am incredibly grateful to all the help she gave me and I’ve now booked my dream holiday thanks to her.
