A few words from our Members:

I thought the Trade Fair was excellent, there was enough time to meet with the BP's I wanted to see and a couple of others as well; the speakers in the afternoon were very good; evening meal and overnight stay onboard Amadeus Princess was a fantastic experience... I got a huge amount out of visiting the different ships.  Understanding each end of the spectrum was really good for me
Catriona Skinner, The Travel Network Group 

The variety of modules with destination and product information for absolute novices up to experienced cruisers is unsurpassed. Then to achieve and be proud of your accomplishments with ultimately a universal link for prospective clients is a brilliant concept.
Peter Ruck, Go Cruise

I've attended a number of team and time management courses in the past, but previously all were in the environment of well-defined task delivery, without the disruptive element of customers to consider. Debbee brought her own slant to tried and tested approaches which I found refreshing and made it very relevant and new. Great atmosphere, good content and useful.
Kit Williams, Silver Compass

We are located right by the docks in the centre of Southampton and therefore the cruise industry is particularly relevant to us. The amount of resources helps learning and the availability of ship visits and inclusion in the Selling Cruise Conference gives them a pathway into the industry.  One of my students has now been specifically sought out by Royal Caribbean to join their management programme in June 2015 because of her all-round depth of knowledge of the cruise industry
Pippa Booker, Southampton City College

Thank you so much for such a fantastic conference in Dover at the Luxury Cruise Expo....The speakers were all good and each bringing a different dimension to the term 'luxury' and am sure we all took away something of value.
Julie Hambleton, University College Birmingham
