Edwards Holidays announce Cruise Holiday Expansion with P&O Cruises

Edwards Holidays are excited to announce an expansion into its existing cruise portfolio by welcoming P&O Cruises and Cunard Cruises on board.

P&O Cruises and Cunard Cruises are the largest Cruise lines sailing out of Southampton and offer an extensive programme year round. Andrew Jeans, Cruise Product Manager at Edwards Holidays says “We are very excited to be working with P&O and Cunard Cruises and expanding our cruise holiday offering to our customers. As a brand, P&O and Cunard are well suited to Edwards’ customer demographic and their current holiday programme. Selected sailings will feature the unique door to port service that the UK coach operator of the year now provides.

Cruising is one of the fastest growing industries and by working with P&O and Cunard Cruises, allows Edwards to offer a first class service for all cruise tastes.

Edwards are currently working on production of their first Cruise brochure due out later this year, offering a varied selection of Cruises from all major cruise partners with door to port service for 2017 and 2018.

Edwards Holidays Welcome On Board Andrew Jeans as Cruise Product Manager

Award winning Edwards Holidays are pleased to welcome Andrew Jeans, one of Wales’ top selling cruise holiday agents to their head office team. Andrew, with over 20 years of travel industry experience will bring his wealth of knowledge to the already established Edwards cruise portfolio which currently includes Royal Caribbean International, Celebrity Cruises and Azamara who Edwards currently work with. Along with existing partners, Andrew is working to introduce new partnerships with various cruise lines, offering customers the widest range of cruise holidays possible.

Andrew has enjoyed a great deal of success in his career to date, being recognised by TUI group as a finalist for the Business Innovation Transformation Award. His success came from taking customers from their respective home towns across South Wales straight to the port of Southampton building a client base of over 1,000 Welsh customers and resulting in a sales turnover in excess of £1 million. It is this element of the holiday experience which Edwards excel at, with the UK coach tour operator of the year providing coach transfers to and from the port itself utilising the executive and modern fleet.

With a head office relocation to Llantrisant on the horizon, 2017 is set to be a bumper year of growth for Edwards who will be hoping the addition of Andrew Jeans will help to drive the growth of cruise sales across the board. With a personal vision of helping Edwards become the leading cruise retailer in Wales, Andrew stated, “I am very much looking forward to continuing the success already enjoyed by Edwards holidays. My aim is to grow this business further and keep Welsh customers cruising hassle free, and for Edwards to be recognised as the leader in cruise holidays within their retail network and throughout Wales.”
