The History of Ocean World Travel

Michele Dance founded Ocean World Travel in 1995, having worked as a manager in a High Street Travel Agency for many years. Initially working from home in a box room in Birmingham. Ocean World Travel quickly became very well-known in the cruise industry, especially with Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines, P&O Cruises, Cunard Line, 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 took up their offices in the 'cruise capital of the UK', Southampton. After 20 years of trading, the family team Michele, Alan and children Arran and Calan, have expanded into their hometown of Chandlers Ford. Handpicked staff offer the same 1995 values of warm and friendly service whilst calling upon years of travel experience.

Why We Care

"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."
