"Of course we would recommend Cruise Express to anyone"
"1. The ship - the food and entertainment were excellent 2. The ports were all different - each with it's own charm 3. Grant at Cruise Express gave wonderful advice, was prompt in responding to enquiries - nothing was too much trouble and as a final touch sent us flowers for our cabin which lasted the entire journey. He really did go beyond our expectations - couldn't praise him highly enough! 4. Of course we would recommend CE to anyone."
Helen Warner, Newcastle, NSW
"Thank you, Cruise Express made it possible for us to take a cruise"
"Cruise Express made it possible for us to take a cruise and with the ability for us to make payments each pension day was to us a great help and thank you Cruise Express made it possible for us to take a cruise. I thought that it was a dream that was far out of our reach but with the help of Cruise Express our dream came true thank you Cruise Express I have no hesitation in recommending Cruise Express to anyone at anytime"
Jan Mazur, Forest Lake, QLD
"We appreciated the Cruise Express dinner and lunch gifts"
"Highlight was Vietnam and Sanya in Hainan. Our decision to not travel to Hanoi and Ho Chi Min City we believe was correct as too exhausting, but the other local tours we took were very good. On board, the Pinnacle Restaurant is excellent - we appreciated the Cruise Express dinner and lunch 'gifts' and we added two other bookings. Great also to receive from Cruise Express the welcome champagne, strawberries and additional two bottles of wine as well as the Pinnacle bookings - very generous. We have already identified Cruise Express to a contact in North Sydney who is yet to experience a cruise."
Kenneth Nicol, North Sydney, NSW
"The balcony room was very nice and the Celebrity Solstice was a beautiful ship"
"The Mimic Hotel in Barcleona was very nice, clean, and had free wi-fi. It also included breakfast which was also good. Checking into the Celebrity Solstice was trouble free and thanks to Lance for the lovely champagne and roses that were delivered to our cabin on our first night. The balcony room was very nice and the Celebrity Solstice was a beautiful ship. We did enjoy the 2nd cruise better as there were more sea days. We were very pleased that we didnt have to change cabins for the 2nd cruise unlike many of the other back to back people. Unfortunately when we got to Dubai we have to leave the ship and spend all day in the Airport. We were hoping to be able to leave our luggage at the airport and go downtown, but we couldnt find anywhere to put it. So we spent about 6 hours waiting to check in our luggage. One of the highlights of the trip was definitely going to Petra, it was totally amazing. Kotor, Montenegro was another highlight, just coming into the harbour early in the morning was fantastic."
Heather Borg, Adelaide, SA

Mrs Jennifer List, Melbourne, VIC
"We could not be more pleased with the service and advice..."
"Highlights: Great hotels, Cape Canaveral, Panama Canal, Peru and Chile Everything arranged by Grant went like clockwork. We were always kept fully informed of events prior to departure and everywhere we went the bookings were perfect. We could not be more pleased with the service and advice he provided and the little surprises he sent while we were cruising were really appreciated by both of us. THANKYOU Grant We have already highly recommended Cruise Express to many friends and family."
Bernard & Christine Watts, Wolumla, NSW
"The booking went through really smoothly..."
"The highlight was the ability to sleep lots, read a stack of books, enjoy lots of sea days, eat too much. The booking went through really smoothly and a more than satisfactory hotel organised for our three days in Honolulu. Yes, we will recommend Cruise Express."
Helen Steadman, Sydney, NSW
"I like to be able to do everything over the phone with Cruise Express and they have always provided good service"
"We both enjoyed the cruise very much. The second half was the best as the scenery from Valpraiso down around to Ushahai was incredibly beautiful especially through the Chilean fiords. That was the highlight for us. The service and activities on Holland America ships is always consistent and we have no negative comments at all. It was great. I like to be able to do everything over the phone with Cruise Express as I am in Wollongong and they have always provided good service. I would definitely recommend your company to my friends. This was the second cruise this year and Sue and I will be doing Alaska next year and I hope to do some other cruise as well."
Faye Franklin, Wollongong, NSW
"The highlight of the trip was seeing parts of Australia which we have never seen before and doing it in comfort"
"The highlight of the trip was seeing parts of Australia which we have never seen before and doing it in comfort. Our dinner in the Pinnacle Grill thanks to Cruise Express was great. Flowers in the cabin on arrival was a pleasant surprise, thank you."
Alan and Marie Jones, Ouakers Hill, NSW
"Your response always prompt. A helpful team of people, very professional. Thanks"
Waiching Lo, Katoomba, NSW
"What did Cruise Express do for us? Ensured we had a worry free trip..."
"Overall the trip was excellent. South America certainly had some "different" ways and experiences to offer. Highlights-a number really. The Panama Canal was extraordinary in the way and when it was built. Rounding Cape Horn (calm but cold) visiting Ushuaia the southern most city in the world. What did Cruise Express do for us? Ensured we had a worry free trip (hiccup with the strike in Argentina no fault of CE). As always (have had quite a few holidays through CE) everything knitted together quite nicely. Would we recommend CE. Yes I would ,and have done so already."
Kevin Middleton /Jenny Bogna, Glenfield, NSW
"I would recommend Cruise Express to all my friends and family, I always do and always will"
"The highlight of this trip was the Solar Eclipse, it was wonderful to be there and experience it all. Cruise express gave a wonderful gift of Champagne Strawberries and Dinner and Lunch at the Pinnacle Grill and it was truly delicious we enjoyed every mouthful. I would recommend Cruise Express to all my friends and family, I always do and always will, people we met on this cruise will be going to the Cruise Express website on our recommendation."
Lorraine Morris, Yarrawarrah, NSW
"thank you ... for all the little extras which made it very memorable"
"Well what a wonderful surprise we received when we collected our mail, Ray and I cannot thank you and Peter enough for our copy of 2012 Pearls of the Orient DVD. We cannot imagine how many hours Peter put into it ( we loved the Love Boat Theme). Watching the DVD bought back so many terrific memories, we certainly relived all the great times we had together. Lance I would also like to thank you once again for my lovely Birthday cake, it is one birthday I will never forget!! Ray and I both had a fabulous trip Lance and we would like to thank you and Peter and Cruise Express for all the little extras which made it very memorable and we hope to see you again in the not too distant future."
Ray and Joyce Eagle, Pearls of the Orient, 2012
"I am indeed “hooked” on Cruise Express & plan to travel often in the future"
"Thank you so much for your fantastic effort, in putting together the DVD of Pearls of the Orient tour. I enjoyed the background music as I re-lived the experience all over again. You are a fantastic tour guide & travel companion & I am sorry that you are not hosting either of the next 2 trips that I am taking in May. However I am indeed “hooked” on Cruise Express & plan to travel often in the future. Thank you once again."
Wendy-Ann, Pearls of the Orient, 2012
"Thank you once again for the wonderful experience"
"Just a quick note to thank you for the DVD - there were plenty of great personal highlights captured by Peter. We have done a few Escorted trips over the years, but this is the first time we have received a DVD covering the highlights of the trip. To have a record of the Antics/Actions of the Tour Group at the various locations, meant the DVD really came alive and made the trip even more memorable. Thank you once again for the wonderful experience."
Graham & Sandra, Pearls of the Orient, 2012
"I would like to thank Lance and Peter for all you did for us on the trip. I haven't, as yet, booked any more cruises but I am certainly interested in joining you again for another trip".
Carolyn, Pearls of the Orient, 2012
"Cruise Express certainly tick all the boxes when it come to escorted tours"
"We received the Pearls of the Orient DVD from the October 2012 tour yesterday. Wow! What a fabulous DVD memento of our tour through the Orient. Watching the DVD helped us relive every wonderful moment of the tour. Thank you to Peter who set up the DVD for all of us. Cruise Express certainly tick all the boxes when it come to escorted tours."
Terry and Glenda, Pearls of the Orient, 2012
"Customer service was excellent, any queries or problems were responded to promptly."
Sue Hird, St. Clair, NSW
"Everthing you booked/arranged for us happened"
"Grant, The flowers on ship were lovely - thankyou. Everything you booked/arranged for us happened - which was great. The accommodation was great, except for Singapore the bathroom was due for repairs. The hotel in Dubai was great for our shopping in Emirates Mall. The staff at the hotel in Paris were excellent and the hotel was well located for our tours and gift shopping and dinning out - thanks. And yes, we would recommend Grant and Seabourn."
Cedric & Beryl Ostrofski, Flinders View, QLD
"Thank you to Lance and the rest of the team at Cruise Express"
... for organising such a wonderful cruise recently through the Mediterranean aboard Nieuw Amsterdam and thank you for all the lovely courtesies you organised for us along the way. We had a fantastictime. All the ports in Italy, Croatia, Greece and Turkey and beyond during our 23-day cruise offered great sightseeing - too many highlights to mention but we would love to share them with you when you get a chance. The ship and our hotel accommodation ashore were excellent but we ate too much food on the ship! We love cruising – especially the fact you don’t have to worry about luggage and can just relax – and we appreciate how Cruise Express always looks after you all the way, especially if you ever need help – Cruise Express always does its darndest to assist you.”
Caroline and Graeme, Bowral, NSW
"We thoroughly enjoyed our wonderful cruise on River Empress in July"
"Dear Cruise Express Team, Ray and I are very sorry that we are unable to attend the Reunion and Birthday as we will be out of town that weekend. Hopefully we may be able to attend next year if you have a reunion then. We thoroughly enjoyed our wonderful cruise on River Empress in July and could not have wished for a better tour guide than Hardy - a very considerate and caring person - buying white roses for us all to put on graves at the Somme! It was a very well organised tour and, although we had to sit in the rain at Andre Rieu's concert we did enjoy it. Thank you for a wonderful cruise."
Maggie Pye & Ray Kearns, NSW
“We recently returned from your escorted tour to Africa on the QM2. It far exceeded our expectations"
"The ship was marvelous - first class all the way - but it was your land tour in South Africa that was even more fantastic. Adjectives fail in trying to explain our experience. Sometimes I was moved to tears as I thought how privileged we were to be there with friends. Speaking of friends – our escorts – Hardy and Helen – were wonderful, so patient and caring, funny and friendly. More like friends than tour escorts, they made our trip. Seeing the ‘big five’ animals on safari in South Africa was mind blowing as was the lodge and staff there. Our ultralight flight over Victoria Falls and our special ‘Walking with the Lions’ tour there just topped the whole experience off. Can’t stop thinking about it! We would go back tomorrow. Thanks so much to Cruise Express, especially Hardy and our lovely Helen. Fond memories indeed."
Pat and Geoff, Burleigh Waters, QLD, who were on their third hosted tour with Cruise Express
"We would like to thank you for organising such a wonderful holiday!"
“We would like to thank you for organising such a wonderful holiday. As we were first-time travellers to Europe and a bit green, the whole experience was just magical and beyond our expectations. This is all thanks to you and your organisation. We won’t have any hesitation in recommending your company to anyone who asks who we travelled with.”
Stefanie and Wally, Sydney, NSW
Cruise Express hosted cruise tour on Queen Victoria in the Mediterranean
"Our overall trip was excellent, it would be difficult to select one area as a stand out, each day was different but an individual memorable experience."
Michael O'Boyle - NSW
"The ship, the facilities, the crew, the food and the service were all excellent"
