Outstanding service, expertise and experience, I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Outstanding service, nothing is a problem, Nicola Boyd seems to go above and beyond top service to solve the many problems that Covid cancellations and rescheduling cruises throws up. She has been excellent and has a great deal of expertise and experience and has booked us cruises in the past, but in the current Covid situation she had to cancel our Alaska trip, dealing with airlines, hotels, train and cruise lines. All of this she took in her stride, and then she helped us book a different cruise from Southampton, and sorted out all the various questions we had to our complete satisfaction. We love cruises and won’t be going anywhere else to book, other than Scotland’s Cruise Centre, and I highly recommend them to friends or anyone looking to book a cruise.
