Thank you for visiting my personal webpage at Travel Counsellors. I joined Travel Counsellors in January 2002, having been lucky enough to work within various aspects of the travel business for over 30 years. This has given me a wealth of experience and has allowed me to travel extensively worldwide. I have only ever worked in the travel business, this is all I know and what I love to do!
I am a cruise specialist - prior to joining Travel Counsellors I spent the previous 12 years with P&O and Princess Cruises. I have been fortunate to cruise to many areas of the world including the Caribbean, Alaska, the Norwegian Fjords and the Mediterranean. Cruising is now very popular and is a great holiday for everyone; singles, couples and families - there is a cruise out there to suit you all. My job is to find that cruise that is just right for you.
Travel Counsellors are an independent travel agency - we can offer you outstanding financial protection as well as comprehensive travel insurance.
Working from my home in the New Forest means I can offer to you my undivided attention, and provide you with exceptional customer service. It also means I am available at a time to suit you including evenings and weekends. If you would like to receive regular updates of current cruise offers and cruise news please forward your email address via the above link.
I am honoured to have won the 'Best Cruise' award at our annual conference in 2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014. I am also a Gold Travel Counsellor, one of 130 in the UK. This award means I aim to maintain a high level of sales each year. I am also one of a small group of Travel Counsellors who have achieved over £15,000,000 in sales during my time with the company.
Alongside the cruises I have booked with in the last year I have also booked holidays to Florida, Cuba, South Africa, New York, China and Canada as well as flights to Australia and various hotels worldwide. So if you are thinking of a long haul land based holiday let me know and I will do my best to find the right holiday for you.
I look forward to hearing from you - I guarantee to offer friendly, efficient and professional, unbiased travel advice.
I want my customers to feel delighted with the service they receive. So I'm thrilled when I get recognition like this...
Very helpful and friendly. Above and beyond expected service by being available at weekends too.

Mandy Swales, Tadley, 06 November 2014
Recently booked a further cruise with p&o through Caroline. Help and service was excellent, as we have come to expect, despite the time of day (2030) when making the booking. Our experience when dealing with Caroline over the past few years has been a...

I already sing the praises of Travel Counsellors and especially Caroline to all my friends and those I meet on holiday. A brilliant company but more than that I feel part of the family. Caroline most certainly deserves her GOLD status.

Last week I was lucky enough to be able to spend 2 nights onboard the latest addition to the P&O Cruises fleet. Britannia is certainly a very impressive ship, the huge version of the Union Jack along the ships means she will not be missed in port. This ship has been designed by a leading hotel designer and that shows, she is sleek, smart and modern. Traditional features such as the Crows Nest or familiar named restaurants haven't been forgotten either. As you get onboard the 3 deck atrium is striking, from here stairs take you to various public areas or...

I was lucky enough to travel on Ventura on one of her two night mini cruises. I had seen Ventura before when she was first launched. As she’ recently had a refit I was keen to see what had changed. The whole embarkation process was easy and quick, so in no time at all we were on-board and found our balcony cabin on lido deck. On-board there are maps to help you navigate the ship, failing that there are plenty of staff on-hand to help. Our balcony cabin was spacious and well-appointed with everything you could need for two nights or...

I was lucky to be invited to join a small group of agents to spend time on the Celebrity Eclipse ship and even on a rainy day in Southampton, she was an remarkable sight. All the staff we met were very welcoming, friendly and always smiling. Eclipse is part of the Solstice Class that Celebrity Cruises first introduced in 2008 with the launch of Celebrity Solstice. This was then followed by Equinox, Eclipse, Silhouette and Reflection. They are a very impressive class of ship which feel very spacious from a clever use of space, colour, different materials and textures. Art is...

On June 8th I was part of a small group of Travel Counsellors who had been invited to a special travel agents event on board Princess Cruises’ newest ship Royal Princess. Royal Princess was in Southampton for a few days prior to her naming ceremony when The Duchess of Cambridge will be officially named as the ship's godmother. If you are a regular with Princess Cruises you will straight away recognise various features on board such as Sabatinis, The Piazza, The Sanctuary, Horizon Court, Princess Theatre, Vista Lounge and much more. Royal Princess is very much a typical Princess ship but also...
