River & Ocean Luxury Cruise Show Highlights

11 Sep 2018 | by Ellen Jones

On Thursday 6th September 2018 we held our second River and Ocean Luxury Show of 2018 at the fabulous De Vere Selsdon Estate in South Croydon. Fortunately, we were graced with beautiful weather for the most perfect outlook you could ask for.




An Overview of the Day

Once again we were joined by our very own Planet Cruise Weekly presenter, Keith Maynard, who along with the Planet Cruise team, was there to enlighten and inform guests about all things river and ocean luxury in our Talk Theatre.

We saw over 17 of our river and ocean luxury cruise line partners in attendance at the show, some of whom joined us for an event for the first time. They were all on hand to educate our guests about their brands and provide valuable and insightful information, offering the perfect opportunity for guests to ask all the questions they desired.

The event was free for all to attend, and all guests received either a complimentary cup of tea, coffee, a glass of Prosecco or orange juice upon arrival before entering the event to be wowed with a day of luxury. Other highlights of the day included a prize draw competition in which entrants were in with the chance of winning a Luxury Fortnum and Mason Hamper, expert talk theatres, and of course exclusive show discounts.
