Our People

Jackie Heap

Jackie Heap - Office General Manager

Since 1993, when Canberra (friendly fours!) was still in service, I have seen how ships have evolved in inspirational & inventive ways. There’s a ship out there for everyone! I love to hear how a client is pleased we contact them about an offer that might suit, the personal touch.

Anne-Marie Walne

Anne-Marie Walne - Sales Supervisor

Over the past 20 years I have booked my clients on the world’s finest ships visiting all four corners of the globe and I am happy to say I have shared some of their experiences. ‘Carry on Cruising’ that’s what I say, it’s the only way to travel (for me at least)!

Sue Winsby - Cruise Consultant

After many years’ service as a secretary in the Big Smoke (London!), I travelled the world for a couple of years then came home to have babies and join Cruise Connections. Twenty years later: still here, still enjoying it, and still seeing parts of the world I didn’t see then!

Michaela Darby

Michaela Darby - Cruise Consultant

Since leaving school in 1995, I became a trainee cruise consultant; over 20 years later and I am still here. I have been very fortunate to cruise and experience so many magical places, some of which I have taken my family back to. Having had the opportunity to sample so many of the wonderful cruise companies and with over two decades of travel experience, I can tailor make your cruise holiday to suit your wish list.
