Cruise Select


After 18 years of dedication and hard work, Shelley left Cruise Select in March 2018 for a career outside of travel.

Shelley started at Cruise Select in 2000, shortly after Rachel started as manager. It was Shelley's first job out of school, and she's remained here ever since, making her the longest-serving member of staff. She spent many years working in sales, but now works mostly in the marketing department.

Shelley's favourite cruising destination is Norway; after she experienced the Land of the Midnight Sun for herself, Shelley would recommend everyone visit the country in their lifetime as 'it is a truly breath-taking and awe-inspiring destination'. Top of her bucketlist of destinations to cruise to is New Zealand, another country renowned for its different landscapes and cultures.

Throughout her many years working with Cruise Select, Shelley has been lucky enough to sail with quite a few cruise lines, so finds it tricky to single out a favourite. However, she does love the luxury side of cruising, and so Crystal, Silversea and Regent are her top three, as 'these cruise lines do truly spoil you. So much is included, and the atmosphere and staff service once you are on board is second to none'. However, Cunard also holds a special place in her heart as she enjoyed her honeymoon onboard Queen Victoria, and she'd highly recommend Cunard to anyone for their service, spacious rooms, and comfort whilst onboard.
