Ian Warren – GoCruise with Ian
My love of the sea goes back to when I was 16 years old, and I went to sea working as a steward. I was with the Union Castle Line, and did many round trips to South Africa on the Pendennis Castle, and still clearly remember the sail away from each port. Even now all these years later, sailing out of Southampton feels really special.
Having left the Merchant Navy it was many years before I went on my first cruise, which was with my wife Ellena and daughter Lisa, in 1997. We were on Thomson’s Island Breeze, and my love of the sea was reborn. Since then I have cruised with more than 20 cruise lines, some of which are sadly no longer around.
In order to increase my knowledge of the different cruise lines, and the various ships within their fleets, I make a point of visiting as many ships as I can. Many of these visits include lunch onboard, so I also get a feel for the quality of food and service, not just what the ships look like. Follow these links to see the ships I have cruised on, as well as the ships I have visited.
This broad spectrum of experience puts me in the ideal position to help ensure that when I book you a cruise it will be on the right ship for you. Call me now on 08002922850 or 01455821770.
