Specialist Holiday Travel & Cruise Agents

Ocean World Travel has been one of the UK's top cruise specialists for 25 years. Although we specialise in cruises, that's not all we sell. We opened our first retail travel shop in Chandler's Ford, Hampshire, back in Summer 2017.

Being an independent family-run travel agency, we can use our wide range of contacts and suppliers to find you the best price for your next holiday. Our expert travel team offer an unrivalled level of customer service, going the extra mile to make your holiday extra special and memorable.

Founded in the mid 90s, Ocean World Travel still has the same strong core values of quality and customer care at the centre of everything we do. We look forward to helping you create your next memorable holiday.

Whilst we can book your holiday over the phone or online, you can also visit our shop in Chandler's Ford, near Southampton and Winchester - giving you expert peace of mind.

The History of Ocean World Travel

Founded by Michele Dance, Ocean World Travel initially began operation in 1995 from a small box room in Birmingham, after having worked as a manager in a High Street Travel Agency for many years. Ocean World Travel quickly became very well-known in the cruise industry, especially with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, P&O Cruises, Cunard, Royal Caribbean International, and Celebrity Cruises to name but a few.

The company grew rapidly, and moved to Winchester in 2003 to expand into larger offices. By 2005, Ocean World Travel decided that they needed to be on the front line, and relocated their offices in the 'cruise capital of the UK', Southampton.

After 20 years of trading as a cruise call centre, it was decided to expand the business to sell all aspects of travel and also open their first shop close to home in Chandler's Ford, Hampshire. In 2020, Ocean World Travel celebrated its 25th Anniversary. Hand-picked staff offer the same 1995 values of warm and friendly service whilst calling upon years of travel experience.

Why We Care

Michele Dance
Director, Ocean World Travel
"A lot has changed for us, but our values remain the same: we offer the best price, and the best service. We want to do more than book your holiday, we want to help you embark on an adventure of a lifetime. We'll guide you through the entire process, from finding the ship or holiday that's right for you, to booking your excursions. It's your voyage, we're just here to make things a little easier. You're never more than a telephone call, or the click of a button, away from a member of our friendly staff. From the beginning, cruising has shaped our lives. We met whilst on holiday on a cruise, got engaged on the launch of Vision of the Seas and even got married on board the Queen's favourite ship, Hebridean Princess."
