The Best of the Autumn 2017 Iglu Cruise Show

12th October 2017

Due to ever-increasing demand for our Iglu Cruise Holiday Show, we recently held our second and final show of the year at the beautiful Epsom Downs Racecourse.

Guests were greeted with spectacular views over the venue, where the sun was shining and our staff were smiling. With faultless transport links, complimentary parking, and welcome drinks on hand throughout the day, the atmosphere was relaxed and cheerful. Hundreds of cruise fans turned out to be a part of the event, to discuss their future cruising needs, and gain valuable advice from our experts.

An impressive array of cruise line representatives, travel agents, and other specialists were on hand to offer information and guidance, and to inspire cruisers with all possible cruising options. With six live talks taking place throughout the day, guests could find answers to all their holiday questions with ease.

A real highlight of the day was BBC presenter Nicholas Owen’s talk about his life experiences, and love for cruising with Cunard. With Cunard in attendance, guests were privy to an authentic and thorough insight into life onboard their ships. Other talks included ‘Why River Cruising Could be for You’, which explained the exciting versatility of cruising the world’s rivers, and ‘Handcrafted Cruise Holidays’, during which our very own experts detailed the possibilities of a tailor made cruise.

As well as making the most of the opportunity to learn more about all things cruise, guests also had the chance of winning a Luxury Hamper, courtesy of Holland America Line. We would like to thank all entrees, and are delighted to congratulate our winner - Jerry from Bognor Regis!

We at Iglu Cruise thoroughly enjoyed our day with all of those who attended, and can’t wait to see you at our 2018 shows, which are set to be even better!

Cruise Guest Speaker - Murray Walker

13th August 2014

Guest speakers are becoming increasingly popular on cruises and the latest one to be announced by Cunard is set to be extremely popular. Renowned Formula One commentator and journalist Murray Walker will join Queen Victoria on her 14 night Canary Island cruise in November.

At 90 years old, he has lived a life that few people could match. From his interesting childhood growing up during World War II to the growth of his phenomenal career in sports commentating, his journey is truly inspirational.

The world was first introduced to Walker in 1948 when his first commentating role, on Shelsley Walsh hillclimb, was aired. This only gave us a taster of the success that was yet to come. In the early 70’s Formal 1 started to become a world phenomenon and gained extensive coverage on British television, it was the perfect role for Walker. It wasn’t until 1978 that he went full-time as a Formal 1 commentator.

Through the following years Walker became extremely popular. His passion, opinions and infectious character beamed through millions of televisions around the world. His dedication didn’t stop here, he wrote a series of annuals for the Formula 1 which became famous collector’s items.

2001 saw Walker’s final Formula 1 season and shortly after he was awarded an original brick from ‘The Brickyard’ by track president Tony George. An award very rarely presented to anyone other than a winning driver, it was a reflection on his incredible contribution.

It was not long before his much loved commentating was missed and in following years came back on our screens with various microphones including Grad Prix Masters, Honda Racing F1 and European Grand Prix.

After being diagnosed with lymphatic system cancer in 2013, Murray made a speedy recovery and continues to influence the world through talks, books and documentaries.

It is not only his time at Formula 1 and the life-changing influence he had on this sport but his personal and early life is a story in itself. An incredibly inspiring character, you will be left in awe when you see him off-screen.

What our customers say

"I booked a Fred Olsen cruise with IGLU last month and was so impressed by the service I received. The staff member I spoke to was Kimberley and she was exemplary. Capable, kind, professional, patient, friendly and knowledgeable. She went through every step of the way calmly and thoroughly. IGLU were recommended to me by friends and I have no hesitation in passing the recommendation along. Well done IGLU and thank you. "

"So easy to deal with, I studied the Cruise I wanted, did my research with different company's and returned to Iglu. I had three quotes matching Iglu’s cost, but with one phone call they beat the price themselves by £40 without me even asking, how easy was that! "
