Due to the huge success of our Iglu Cruise Holiday Shows last year, anticipation had been building for months as to how the first Iglu Cruise show of 2017 was going to go. The first Iglu Cruise Show of 2017 was hosted on Sunday 23rd April at Sandown Park Racecourse. With glorious weather and a grand venue, the day was a superb success and our busiest show yet!


We were joined by many cruise enthusiasts who attended to gain information and knowledge from the suppliers in attendance and also our very own cruise experts. We were also offering exclusive on the day show offers which were only available if you had attended the show.

We were also joined by the Holiday Inn Winchester for the first time where they were able to talk to many cruising fans and educate them on the fabulous offerings they do.

Throughout the day our expert panel of cruise enthusiasts and industry insiders presented a selection of live forums at the cruise show talk theatre. Discussions range from river cruising to first time cruise questions, tailor-made handcrafted holidays and more; there truly was something for everyone.
