Our History

I fell in love with travelling when I was a teenager, and this has never left me. The sense of inspiration when you come back from trying new experiences, food and cultures is amazing.

I started Thorne Travel in 2009 as I wanted make travelling inclusive, and a multi award-winning team was born.

Cruising has changed dramatically over the years allowing it to become something that everyone can enjoy. From ships catering for families wanting  waterslides to those offering 6-star service with butler, large and small there is a ship just perfect for you. As cruise lovers ourselves we know how important it is to speak to an expert who has the experience and inspiration to find you the perfect cruise.

The growth in this part of our business has been so strong due to our knowledge that we decided to set up the team dedicated to cruise only.

In 2017 our Cruise Manager John joined us and won 3 awards in his first year by the leading cruise industry body, Cruise Line International Association (CLIA). Since then, the company has grown and now John has his own team to specialise in cruise holidays, and finally leading “Cruising With Thorne Travel”.

They love nothing better than experiencing cruise ships, discovering fabulous new ports whilst enjoying world class entertainment and indulgent cuisine. John and his expert team will be delighted to help ‘float your boat’.

They have a wealth of knowledge from a world cruise, a Mediterranean cruise, or a relaxing river cruise, they are completely dedicated to helping find the most amazing deals for you.

When you book your cruise holiday with us we take care of every detail from flights and transfers to any additional nights on land or shore excursions. Ensuring you have a seamless and stress-free but exciting adventure.
