Hi… I’m Wayne and I have been in the travel industry now for over 40 years. The last 30 years, I have been selling cruises… a great passion of mine from when I was a young boy. I have cruised and travelled extensively as you’ll see. I am married to Pam and we have two gorgeous daughters, both married to wonderful boys… four adorable grandsons, two courtesy of each daughter, and a beautiful granddaughter too. Nearly forgot.. we have a cheeky little dog as well.
I have seen so many places on my cruise travels and many who know me have caught the bug too. Some of the more memorable trips have been a QE2 Transatlantic crossing, Fred Olsen’s Black Watch Amazon, Silversea’s Silver Cloud Red Sea, Crystal Serenity’s Caribbean, Regent Navigator’s New York and Bermuda, Holland America’s Maasdam Panama Canal, APT ‘s AmaBella Danube… and numerous other trips to the Baltic, Fjords, Spitsbergen, Mediterranean, South Africa, Far East and more.
I live in Manchester and have worked from home for many years now. You cannot cruise and travel as much as I do without building up an extensive and varied knowledge base of all the sights, sites (yes, a little bit of a tongue twister), and places I’ve visited on my travels. I get excited at the thought of sharing my first-hand knowledge and experiences with people I talk to. I am no “tick box” traveller. To me, every single trip is full of the memories we create from them.
I have to confess that my evenings out with friends invariably end up in us talking travel and I love hearing as much about their experiences as they do about mine. What free time I have I love being with family, reading, listening to relaxing music or walking our dog.
Cruising remains my passion, as you will realise when you speak to me. If it’s cruising, cruises, cruise ships, cruise destinations…. in fact, just about anything cruise related, then get in touch with me.
My many clients trust my no-nonsense, professional and “say what I do, do what I say” approach. You’ll be in good hands with your cruise and travel arrangements being handled by me personally.
Whatever your holiday needs I'm here to help you, so simply give me a call or send me an email with your contact details on and I can get things started for you:-
I absolutely live and breathe travel and I love to write about my experiences! Please take a look through my posts - you might find your own holiday inspiration.

TALKING CRUISE? THEN WE REALLY NEED TO CHAT There are not as many travel companies out there as there once were and, let’s face it, with still much uncertainty with current travel restrictions, you might still be a little hesitant booking a holiday now. Well, no need to be concerned. I have been in this business many years and my customers know me well. I get asked many questions and often have pre-empted the question from the client and had answers awaiting, even before the questions had been asked. A great travel agent behaves like that, and is not simply an order taker....

I have been dealing with Wayne since 2008 when he arranged my first Silversea cruise for my wife and myself. Since then, there have been 30 other cruises, and all arranged efficiently, and with no problems when the voyage comes around. What I particularly appreciate is the prompt responses I receive to any questions.

Wayne has managed my (mainly Silversea) cruise bookings for more than a decade, to destinations across most of the world. He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic and highly responsive. He is simply the best travel agent that I have dealt with. You don't need to look any further!

My wife and I have been dealing with Wayne for more than 15 years. He has booked many enjoyable cruises for us with Silversea, Regent, Crystal and Seabourn. His attention to detail is meticulous, and occasionally, when problems arise, he is always quick to help. Due to accident or illness, we have also had to cancel several of our cruises, and each time he has been extremely helpful with the cancellation process. As soon as conditions permit, we will have no hesitation asking him to book our next cruise, as we know him as an energetic, knowledgeable and reliable cruise counsellor.

It’s great to see Wayne back in travel. That’s where he belongs. He has a lifetime library of information on any location you care to chat to him about. You just can’t beat his experience! Wayne has always been my “one stop shop“ for anything and everything in the Cruise business. Wayne has facilitated our cruises for the past 20 years where we have enjoyed his guidance on many trips to the Caribbean, Alaska (including a fabulous trip on The Rocky Mountaineer Train), New Zealand & Australia, Central & South America and the Far East. We have sailed with all the leading Cruise Lines including Regent, Seabourn and Silversea, where Wayne can access his long established high level contacts. We have never been disappointed with any holidays he has organised and he even makes himself available at any time to suit his clients. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend all travellers to contact Wayne to discuss their travel plans.

From the pristine white-sand beaches of Thailand’s idyllic islands to the sprawling wide-open roads of the USA; the historic and breathtakingly beautiful architecture of India to the crystal-clear turquoise waters of the Maldives – there’s a world of wonder out there and it’s just waiting to be explored.
