Liz Rhodes

Liz Rhodes

Liz has worked in the Travel Industry for over 35 years and at Premier Travel for the last 15. Today she is a Senior Travel Consultant at the Huntingdon branch and has cruised with Royal Caribbean, P&O and Fred Olsen.

Liz is very well travelled, has family in Canada who she visits regularly, enjoys relaxing holidays in Cyprus and Lanzarote and loves cruising. Her most recent cruise was with Fred Olsen on a Christmas Markets itinerary sailing to Germany, Denmark and Sweden which included the Kiel Canal. She has also been on a Hurtigruten voyage from Tromso to Trondheim where she was lucky enough to see the Northern Lights and says it was a truly amazing experience.

Last year Liz decided to become a "single" cruiser and experienced P&O Oriana, an adult only ship, and in June cruised to Norway with MSC Opera visiting Flam, Stavanger and Oslo.

“Cruising (especially as a single traveller) is an ideal way to see the world and meet new people in a safe and secure environment”

2014 Departures: 20 May - Fred Olsen Iberian Voyage

Caroline Young

Caroline Young

Caroline joined the travel industry in 1988 with a great love of travelling. She has a wealth of experience with several successful travel companies and has worked at Travel Centre in Dereham since 2007.

Caroline has always been excited about all aspects of travel since watching planes at the airport as a young girl and has travelled extensively over the years. Caroline’s favourite destinations include Spain, where she has been many times, Portugal, Greece, Malta, France and Italy. She has travelled across America by train, been to the Caribbean and skis twice a year. She has cruised with Fred Olsen and was extremely impressed with the level of service and sees cruising as a fabulous way to experience the flavour of many different countries and places in one trip.

“The service on board a cruise ship is fantastic and coupled with the excellent food and entertainment, it’s easy to see why cruising is so popular. I am very excited to have the opportunity to escort these cruises and will enjoy helping people get the most out of their holidays”.

Angela Clarke

Angela Clarke

Angela joined Travel Centre in 1976, and has a wealth of experience in travelling the world. Angela’s specialist area is cruise, after having travelled on over 20 different voyages - ranging from the more intimate small ships to some of the world’s largest vessels.

Angela is extensively well travelled around both Europe and further flung destinations, and is an excellent asset to the cruising team – from first time travellers to experienced cruisers, she will be happy to assist with any queries and put first-time cruise clients at ease.

“Having worked in travel for so many years I find it difficult to choose one favourite destination. However, my most popular holiday is cruising - unpacking once but seeing many new destinations with great food and entertainment as a bonus.”
