Maritime Memories – Cruises as they used to be
Since we dedicated ourselves to making our video series “The Great Liners”, we have created a family of thousands of ship lovers and enthusiasts all over the world, many of whom have asked us time and time again if we could find a way of providing a cruise more like they used to be, back in the days of the ‘Golden Age of Ocean Travel.’
We listened to you and launched ‘Maritime Memories’. Experience once again the freedom of ocean travel so many of us enjoyed back in those halcyon days, whether that was as a passenger or crew on a leisurely line voyage or an unhurried queue-less and relaxing cruise. Enjoy the company of like minded fellow passengers and simply take it easy, relaxing on one of our ships’ wide open decks, with the only sound being that of the passing sea as we sail into the comforting beauty of another magnificent sunset.
Our ships are far removed from most of today’s giant sea-going floating blocks of flats. Instead, we charter smaller ships with their own distinct design and personality. Our first cruise was on Princess Cruises’ “Island Princess”, co-star of the top rated TV series “The Love Boat”, now renamed “Discovery”. In addition to their vintage character, being small, we can get into fantastic ports of call and those out of away places that modern cruise ships are far too big to encroach on.
Other ships we have used include: –
Saga’s Saga Rose, Saga Ruby, Saga Sapphire and Saga Pearl II
Voyages to Antiquity’s Aegean Odyssey
Cunard’s Queen Elizabeth 2
Dining is a big part of our cruises. We host special dinners prepared by our Chefs from menus once used aboard some of the world’s most famous ocean liners such as the Queen Mary, Normandie, Queen of Bermuda, Caronia, Pendennis Castle, Arcadia, Himalaya and Highland Monarch to name but a few.
On board entertainment is firmly aimed at our maritime enthusiasts and includes our own maritime lectures, screenings of rare maritime films, cabaret evenings and an end of voyage fancy dress dinner and dance.
It really is as close as we can get to being on a voyage as experienced in that Golden Age of Ocean Travel.
We are the only people in the world who operate these unique cruises/ voyages. So, if you enjoy ships for whatever reason and want to join us on a cruise as it used to be, then contact us for an up-to-date brochure or to ask any questions. We would be delighted to hear from you.
