Welcome to About2Cruise.co.uk. We search through thousands of cruises so you don’t have to! Whether you’re a seasoned cruiser or planning your first trip, we’ll find the right cruise for you.  We’re here to make your search of a cruise easy and stress-free. Let us tell you a bit about why we started this site and what we offer.

Why We Started About2Cruise.co.uk

We started About2Cruise.co.uk because we’re passionate about cruising and we wanted to make it easier for folks in the UK to hop on a cruise without the hassle of flying. We noticed that while there were plenty of cruise websites out there, none really focused on no-fly cruises – the kind where you start and finish right here in the UK. We thought, why not create a resource that makes finding these cruises a breeze?

We also wanted to share our love for cruising and our insider tips to help others have the best possible experience. Our aim is to take away all the stress of finding a cruise. We’ll do it all for you.

When We Launched

We launched About2Cruise.co.uk back in 2004 when cruising was really starting to take off. We saw an opportunity to fill a niche that wasn’t being served, and we jumped on it. Since then, we’ve grown and become a favourite cruise travel agent among UK cruisers looking for convenient, no-fly options.

Here’s what you’ll find on our site:

  1. Honest Reviews and Tips: Our team is made up of seasoned cruisers who’ve been there and done that. We share our honest reviews and top tips to help you pick the cruise that’s just right for you. We even interview chefs!

  3. Cruising Tips: From packing lists to dining advice and fun onboard activities, our guides are here to help you make the most of your cruise. If you’re new to cruising, you’ll find everything you need to feel prepared.

  4. News and Updates: Stay up-to-date with the latest cruise news, including new ships, special deals, and important travel info. We keep you in the loop so you can plan with confidence.

We’ve been on several cruises before, but this was our first time booking through About2Cruise.co.uk. Jo, our cruise manager, was phenomenal. She took the time to understand our preferences and recommended a cruise that was perfect for us. Jo's expertise and enthusiasm made the whole process smooth and enjoyable. We had an amazing trip and can't wait to book our next cruise with them again.

Booking our family cruise with About2Cruise was the best decision we made. They took the time to find a cruise that suited all our needs, from kid-friendly activities to relaxing spa treatments for the adults. Their personalized service and attention to detail made our holiday stress-free and enjoyable. We can’t thank them enough and will definitely be booking with them again!

My Expertise...

I’ve had the pleasure of leading groups on unforgettable adventures across the globe—from the stunning landscapes of Africa (Mozambique and South Africa) and the historic wonders of the Middle East (Egypt) to the vibrant cultures of South America (Argentina, Chile, and Uruguay) and the diverse regions of Asia (Vietnam, Borneo, and the Philippines). My husband and I even took our children, then 9 and 11 years old, on a four-month journey through Egypt and Europe. It was an incredible learning experience for all of us.

You can also connect directly with me on

I have two passions: travel and textiles. With over 25 years of travel experience and a lifelong love for arts and crafts, I decided it was time to blend the two. I’ve visited more than 50 countries, often returning to the ones that are off the beaten path and a bit more challenging. For me, having a personal connection and hands-on experience is essential.

In addition to my travels, I’m an active member of the ANZEG (Association of New Zealand Embroidery Guilds), New Zealand Creative Fibres, Aotearoa Quilters, and the Auckland Quilters Guilds.

For over a decade, I’ve owned and operated my own travel agency, specializing in cruise holidays. Whether you’re looking to join a group tour or planning a special interest trip with friends, I can help you book your dream cruise. I can provide quotes, assist with bookings, and offer personalised advice.
