The history of Ocean World Travel

Michele Dance founded Ocean World Travel in 1995, having worked as a manager in a high street travel agent for many years. Initially working from home in a box room in Birmingham, Ocean World Travel quickly became very well-known in the cruise industry, especially with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, P&O Cruises, Cunard Line, Royal Caribbean International, and Celebrity Cruises to name but a few. We grew rapidly, and moved down to Winchester in 2003 to expand into larger offices. By 2005, we decided that we need to be on the front line, and took up our office in the 'cruise capital of the UK', Southampton. 20 years later, family team Michele, Alan and children Arran and Calan, have expanded into their hometown of Chandler's Ford. Handpicked staff offer the same 1995 values of warm and friendly service whilst calling upon years of travel experience.

A lot has changed for us, but our values remain the same: we offer the best price, and the best service. We want to do more than send you on holiday, we want to help you set sail on the cruising experience of a lifetime. We'll guide you through the entire process, from finding the ship that's right for you, to booking your excursions. It's your voyage, we're just here to make things a little easier. You're never more than a telephone call, or the click of a button, away from a member of our friendly staff. From the beginning, cruising has shaped our lives. We met whilst on holiday on a cruise, got engaged on the launch of Vision of the Seas and even got married on board the Queen's favourite ship, Hebridean Princess
