Cruising with Jane McDonald

Jane McDonald is cruising around South America on Channel 5’s Cruising with Jane McDonald.

In last week’s episode, she is aboard Silversea’s luxury cruise ship, Silver Muse – where every suite has a sea view, and all meals and most drinks are included (with 9 bars!)

Jane started her trip in Valparaiso, Chile,. where she explored street art and had a go herself.  Then it was onto Castro with its quirky architecture (painted houses on stilts).

In Patagonia, Jane saw the San Rafael glacier with its 20,000 year old blue ice (and tried some in her whiskey!), before moving on to Punta Arenas, the 4th windiest city in the world and one of the southernmost in Chile.  Here she enjoyed a unique experience of having lunch with a local family!

Then it was off to the Falkland Islands, the UK’s furthest outpost, where she saw telephone boxes and a red double-decker bus!  At the penguin sanctuary there were over 2,000 penguins to see.

From here she travelled to Argentina, to Buenes Aires, for tango lessons!

This trip continues on Channel 5 on Friday (29th June)

Our customer's receive excellent customer service...

Let us tell you about the excellent service our customers receive

Last Sunday a customer called us at 6 in the evening because they were having problems checking in online for their transatlantic flight the following morning.  We were on the phone with BA and American Airlines until 7 o’clock resolving this and then called our customer with the information so she could check in and relax ahead of her flight.

Another customer got in touch because he was having problems with his Visa confirmation for a trip to Canada later that week. As a  Canada specialist, we found a contact in Destination Canada who provided information which assisted our customer in resolving his visa issue.  He is currently enjoying his holiday with his family in Canada.

Last Wednesday, customers who are going on a cruise next week got in touch to say they had some friends also going on the same cruise (but not booked through us). We got in touch with the cruise company and arranged for them to all sit together for their meals.  Some more happy customers!

Then just a couple of days ago, another customer contacted us because her daughter had booked the no frills flight in her married name but had not yet updated her passport from her maiden name.  We were able to liaise with the airline, alter the name on the reservation and all for considerably less than our customer had expected to pay.  Now they can all enjoy their trip to the Algarve this weekend.

Would these customers have received that service from a high street travel agent?  And what about if they’d booked online?

Our customers can access us for assistance when they really need it, even if it’s at weekends or during the evenings.

So, whether it’s your annual family holiday or you want to know you’ll receive excellent service when you need it – make it Your Perfect Escape.

Why not try a Hurtigruten Cruise?

Hurtigruten Cruise 25th July 2016-1-1

Today I’m promoting cruises to Norway’s beautiful coast, with Hurtigruten

Some of their cruises run all year round, while others are season specific.  However, whenever you go, you’re sure to be in for a real treat!  The Classic Round voyage, a 12 day cruise has been described as “The World’s Most Beautiful Voyage”.  Norway’s coastal ports are perfect for hunting the Northern Lights during Winter.

And they are so confident you will see the Northern lights during your 12 day cruise, that if they don’t make an appearance they will give you a half board 6 or 7 day Classic Voyage FREE OF CHARGE!  In fact, during winter, they expect to see the Northern Lights almost EVERY DAY on this cruise!

The 12 day Classic round voyage, from Bergen to Kirkenes and back to Bergen, with flights from the UK is currently from £1,224

And Hurtigruten are also currently offering no single supplements, making their cruises excellent value for Solo travellers!

They have 11 ships cruising the Norwegian coast, which are smaller than your traditional massive ships, as they need to be small enough to enter the system of fjords.  Norway’s fjords are a UNESCO World Heritage site and considered to be “among the best unspoiled travel destinations in the world!” and one of the “seven wonders of nature!”.  The ships feature modern facilities alongside true character.  Among the luxuries on board are a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, sauna and gym.

If you want to go whale watching, or snow mobiling, see the stunning Lofoten Islands or go husky dog sledding, all this is possible with a Hurtigruten cruise.  Why not go fishing or explore further on a Rib adventure?  And kayaking and mountain hiking are also popular.

So, whether it’s your annual family holiday or a Cruise along the Norwegian coast, make it ……….   Your Perfect Escape
