Having worked in the travel industry for over 30 years, Emma can count herself in the top 10 most qualified cruise consultants in the UK. She’s even been certified a Master by the Cruise Lines International Association. Back on land, Emma has ticked off over 80 countries, enjoying a particular love of luxury train travel along the way. The Blue Train, the Rocky Mountaineer and, of course, the iconic Venice Simplon-Orient-Express are just a few of her favourites. Emma has also been lucky to have stayed in some of the world’s finest hotels, with Cape Town’s Ellerman House and the One&Only Le Saint Géran in Mauritius two personal highlights. Then, when she’s not luxuriating, Emma likes to get out and explore. Between Chile and Peru, she’s marvelled at the Nazca Lines, Atacama Desert and Machu Picchu, while a safari South Africa’s Kruger National Park remains one of her most humbling experiences. And lastly, Emma has recently fulfilled a lifelong ambition, finally ticking off her 7th and final continent with a cruise to Antarctica.
