Adore Cruises are one of the leading cruise agents within the UK. With only a small team we strive

to offer the best prices and service within the industry. Collectively between us, we have over 50 years

experience specialising in cruises. Our main strength is being specialists in the unusual and thinking outside

of the box creating unique cruise holidays for our customers. We sell all of the major cruise lines

and destinations but are experts in cruises to Alaska, Far East, Dubai and Hawaii. All of the staff

are expertly trained and hand picked for their knowledge and customer service and we have all worked as

a team for the last 7 years.

Adore Cruises is the brainchild of Ian Gilder . Ian started his career as a home worker

selling cruises and was then head hunted to work for the largest cruise retailer in the UK.

After working for them for 7 years, Ian moved to another cruise agency where he headed up the division.

He started with 2 members of staff and within 4 years grew this to 42. During the time there the agency won

multiple awards including Best Growth for P&O, Cunard and Princess all in the same year. Best growth for

Princess Cruises twice, best growth for Cunard Cruises. Best growth for Holland America and last year won

the Travelzoo European cruise deals provider of the year.
