Bolsover Cruise Club recognised as the UK’s top P&O Cruises agent for a 30th consecutive year.
The year was 1987 and George Michael had ‘Faith’, Bon Jovi was ‘Livin’ on a Prayer’ and Patrick Swayze had us hypnotized with his snake hips in Dirty Dancing. Somewhere amidst all of this, Bolsover Cruise Club was collecting the award for ‘Top UK Independent Agent for Canberra Cruises’ for the very first time.
Fast-forward to 2017; Canberra Cruises has become better known as P&O Cruises and Bolsover Cruise Club has returned to the stage to collect the cruise line’s most coveted award for a 30th consecutive year, at a star-studded ceremony held at London’s 100 Wardour Street hotel in January.
The UK Cruise Awards are the most prestigious event on the cruise calendar, bringing the industry’s biggest names together to recognise the most successful agents of the previous year.
Speaking about winning the award for an incredible 30 consecutive years, Michael Wilson, Managing Director of Bolsover Cruise Club, said:
“To be recognised as the UK’s top independent agent for P&O Cruises for 30 years in a row is a huge achievement for us and one which we are incredibly proud of.
“Our relationship with P&O Cruises has been nurtured over a great period of time, beginning when the cruise industry itself was still in its inception and SS Canberra ruled the waves.
“Retaining this award for so long is testament to our unrivalled expertise of the UK’s favourite cruise line.
Bolsover Cruise Club’s second win of the night came via Reservations Manager, Helen Moore, who had her unwavering hard work and commitment recognised with the Shining Star Award.
Helen, who has worked for Bolsover Cruise Club for over 20 years, said:
“I am so honoured and proud to receive this award.
“To be recognised for all my hard work and my commitment to Bolsover Cruise Club, and our valued operators, makes everything worthwhile. I am so grateful to all who made this happen, it really does mean the world to me.”
