How long have you been working for Fred.\ River Cruises?
I have just recently joined the team at Fred River Cruises, after taking a 10 year break. I previously worked for Fred. Olsen Travel from 1995-2007, before leaving to bring up children. I am very excited to be back working in the travel industry.
What, do you believe, makes river cruising unique?
The intimate atmosphere compared to larger cruise liners, the still waters to alleviate sea sickness, being always within walking distance of towns and cities and the added benefit of spacious outside cabins.
Which river cruise lines have you cruised with?
In the past I have experienced Nile Cruise and a brief time on the American Queen in New Orleans.
Are there any rivers or regions that you would particularly recommend?
I would recommend the closer European cruises as they are easy to access and the routes are very picturesque. For the more advanced and adventurous traveller I would highly recommend the Mississippi.
What is your most memorable river cruising experience?
I had a wonderful cruise on the Nile from Luxor to Aswan, the history of Egypt paired with exotic food, fragrances and temples was an experience to never forget.
What are the unique factors of booking with Fred.\ River Cruises?
Our extensive staff with first had experiences, large database of river cruise companies and offers, exclusive deals and the fantastic customer service we offer.
