    'World-class' Entertainment coming to P&O!

    Hi everyone, Yes this is true and below is the official statement from P&O Cruises. This summer, Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy will be bringing a bit of boy band magic to the high seas with their recently formed super group, Boyzlife. Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy - part of the multi-platinum, record breaking bands, Westlife and Boyzone - will be performing in Britannia’s Limelight Club for five nights from August 12 to 16, 2017. Guests will be treated to a night of reminiscing and nostalgia during an exciting show packed full of untold stories from their days on the road as well as popular Westlife and Boyzone hits such as ‘No Matter What’ and ‘Flying Without Wings’. Keith Duffy said: “We are very excited to be taking our sell-out tour to sea and entertaining Britannia’s guests with music and stories from life on the road with our respective bands. After 20 years on the road, we’ve grown up and it’s great to be able to look back, reminisce and give our fans the inside track story of how we felt at the time. I am especially delighted to be back on Britannia after filming Battlechefs last year but this time I will be swapping my chef’s hat for a microphone.” Boyzlife will be performing on the first five nights of Britannia’s 14-night Spain, France & Italy cruise round trip from Southampton. Tickets for each show will cost £49 per person to include a three-course meal. P&O Cruises senior vice president Paul Ludlow said: “At P&O Cruises we are constantly looking at new ways in which we can enhance the experience of our guests. Our guests already enjoy world-class entertainment on board all our ships but I believe they will be especially excited to see such a high profile act as Boyzlife in the intimate setting of Britannia’s Limelight Club.” If you would like further information on this cruise, please call us on 01246 819 819.

    UK’s Top Agent For 30 Years

    Last night we were thrilled to be voted the UK’s top agent for a 30th consecutive year by P&O Cruises, receiving the coveted ‘Outstanding Contribution Award’ at a star-studded ceremony held at London’s 100 Wardour Street hotel on Thursday 26 January 2017. The UK Cruise Awards is the most prestigious event on the cruise calendar, bringing the industry’s biggest names together to recognise the most successful agents of the previous year. A James Bond theme set the scene for a glamorous evening of awards, dinner and dancing, during which we were announced as winners of the ‘Outstanding Contribution Award’ for P&O Cruises. Bolsover Cruise Club Director Julie Straw and Helen Moore took to the stage to collect the shining new addition to our awards cabinet; our 30th P&O Cruises Top Agent award in as many years. Helen later returned to the stage to collect her own ‘Shining Star Award’, a fantastic accolade voted for by all Carnival Cruise Lines operators. Our history with P&O Cruises dates back over 30 years… Bolsover Cruise Club was founded by the Wilson family in 1960 and began selling cruises in 1983. Derek Wilson, Business Development Manager of Bolsover Cruise Club, said: “It all began with a tiny advert. After realising that nobody else was advertising cruise holidays, I decided to place a very small 1 column inch ad in the Mail on Sunday. “The advert was quite expensive back then, about £100, and I remember us debating whether it would be worthwhile. “Shops never opened on Sundays back then, so I put my home telephone number on the advert and waited. The response was incredible. We received constant calls from 7.00am when the newsagents opened, right through to 1.00am the following morning. “Word spread from there and Bolsover Cruise Club just grew and grew. “It was just really the one ship back then, the SS Canberra, and we have grown alongside P&O Cruises ever since. Others have come and gone along the way, but we have stood the test of time. Speaking about winning an award with P&O Cruises for a 30th consecutive year, Michael Wilson, Managing Director of Bolsover Cruise Club, said: “To be recognised as the UK’s top independent agent for P&O Cruises for 30 years in a row is a huge achievement for us and one which we are incredibly proud of. “Our relationship with P&O Cruises has been nurtured over a great period of time, beginning when the cruise industry itself was still in its inception and SS Canberra ruled the waves. “Retaining this award for so long is testament to our unrivalled expertise of the UK’s favourite cruise line.
