About Katy

Hello, I’m Katy. I have worked in cruise travel for almost 9 years now! I truly know that my heart lies in this industry; I have so much passion for cruising and it has given me so many amazing experiences. I have been so lucky to go on 6 different cruises from Royal Caribbean’s Anthem of The Seas to the ultra-luxury Regent Seven Seas Mariner and Uniworld’s River Princess, all of which are truly remarkable.

In 2014 I won CLIA’S Young Travel Agent of the Year Award which is one of my greatest achievements. Throughout my career I have been able to attend various cruise events, travel the world, and meet my customers personally. I have also made some fantastic friends for life.

Here at Panache Cruises, as an experienced cruise connoisseur, I offer a tailored and personalised service to ensure each cruise holiday booked through me is as perfect as possible. Nothing is too much trouble.

Working at Panache Cruises

I love working for Panache Cruises because we are part of a team that is highly motivated to provide our customers with the best service and we all work together so well. There are many perks within the industry, but nothing is better than being employed by a great boss who just wants the best for his employees. 

Expert Knowledge

I am Panache's resident expert in Elite Ocean Cruises, specifically Regent Seven Seas, Seabourn, and Azamara. I am also a Yacht-Style cruise expert and have loved working closely with Emerald Yacht Club and Tradewind Voyages. I have been lucky enough to experience a number of cruises throughout my career so far, which has helped me to develop excellent product and destination knowledge. 

Favourite Destination

My favourite destination is Dubai as I love the heat and it’s great all year round for this. It is cosmopolitan and lavish, filled with malls and beautiful hotels. There are so many brilliant hotels in Dubai –  I’ve stayed in the Ritz Carlton, The One and Only on the Palm, and The Address in the Marina.
