SEAFARER – THE ADVANTAGES OF BOOKING WITH THE SPECIALISTS
We at Seafarer are widely recognised as leading specialists in yachting holidays and small ship cruises. We have been trading since 1995 and have accumulated a wealth of experience in this specialised field, with detailed knowledge of the cruise vessels and mega yachts we feature as well as the destinations visited. We can therefore give you the best guidance and advise on choosing the right cruise holiday for you.
Many of the holidays we feature are exclusive to Seafarer and we are the UK general sales agents for some of the leading specialist cruise operators featured, such as Variety Cruises and Dream Yacht Catamaran Cruises.
All our cruises are carefully selected for their superb and often unique itineraries which are very much focussed on really discovering these wonderful destinations, but also for their friendly ambience and informality, which we consider to be key elements of our cruises.
We remain an independent company committed to providing a personal, high quality service to our loyal clientele, through our small experienced team of knowledgeable consultants who have experienced many of the cruise holidays we promote. During office hours, you will always be speaking to a person and never through automated call handling.
At Seafarer we endeavour to respect the natural environment in which we sail as well as the laws, people and culture of the countries visited. We actively promote the history and culture of our host countries and endeavour to contribute to the local economy so as to ensure that the holidays we promote are beneficial to the countries and communities visited. We try to encourage use of local suppliers and personnel where possible, whilst also minimising the environmental impact though modern technology. For example, all Variety Cruises vessels have on board waste treatment systems to avoid polluting the sea with waste. Furthermore, the smaller size of these cruise vessels and the smaller passenger numbers, ensures that the social and environmental impact on some of the small communities visited is minimal.
In all these ways, we are hopefully contributing towards the goal of ensuring that these beautiful and largely unspoilt areas and communities are there to be enjoyed by future generations.
We aim to communicate with you electronically where possible saving unnecessary use of paper, hence we will email you your holiday confirmation invoice and some of your pre- departure information and even your holiday satisfaction questionnaire.
