March/April 2020 – Edition 36
The first time we were recognised as the best in the UK for P&O Cruises, Dirty Dancing was on cinema screens and George Michael was on the radio with Faith, a song we spent many a shoulder-padded hour dancing to. And the less said about my acid wash jeans, the better. That was 1987; fast-forward 33 years and we’re thrilled to be able to say that we have retained the title of ‘Top UK Agent’ consecutively every year since. We never take recognition like this for granted and we couldn’t do what we do so well without our fantastic Cruise Club members, so thank you. As we put winter behind us and move into spring, there’s plenty on the horizon to look forward to. Scarlet Lady, the first ship from the rebellious Virgin Voyages, will have arrived by the time you read this, with Celebrity Apex just days behind. And then we have P&O Cruises Iona, a ship years in the making and now within touching distance. Not only will we be onboard to experience Ionafest, a launch party that promises to be unlike any other, but many of us will be holidaying on the ship ourselves over the summer too. I for one can’t wait for a closer look. This issue of Into The Blue sees us focus on France, the world’s most popular tourist destination and one which offers such diverse choice for cruisers. We meet the young bloggers bringing cruising to a new audience and go behind the scenes with three Holland America Line crew members, as well as sampling a short break to Antwerp and Amsterdam on Cruise & Maritime’s Columbus. We’re also looking at iconic rail journeys including the Venice Simplon-Orient-Express, something which has been on my wish list for years. Paired with a Mediterranean cruise, it remains one of our most requested Cruise & Stay holidays. I hope you enjoy reading.
