Amy is part of the marketing team, and is largely responsible for a lot of the content on this website and our sister site, Select Travel Holidays, including our blogs. Amy started cruising from an early age. She’s been a full-time member of Team Select since 2015, but as a teenager, she was always on hand to help with labelling and stuffing mailshots. She’s been cruising since a child, and has a particular love for small-ship and luxury cruises, and she simply adores river cruising because it offers unparalleled exploration and accessibility into the heart of cities, towns and villages. Since her first cruise back in 1999, Amy has cruised on or visited over 60 ocean and river ships, and is an accredited CLIA Cruise Master, an accolade that’s recognised by City and Guilds. She is the only travel professional in Bedfordshire to receive the accreditation.
Although Amy studied Modern History and Politics, and went on to study law and had a job working in Wills and Probate, Amy soon felt that law was not where her heart lay. The third generation of her family in travel, Amy followed in her mum, Rachel’s, footsteps, and joined Select Travel Holidays. As a child, she had always wanted to be a writer, and now she can combine this dream with a passion for travel, as she blogs, writes articles for our Select magazine, and details holidays on our websites. In 2019, Amy was shortlisted as a Finalist for two Cruise Star Awards: Travel Agent Marketing Star, and Travel Agent Rising Star (Under 35). The Cruise Star Awards are held by Cruise Trade News.
