Lisa Worthington

Lisa Worthington

Cruise and Travel Consultant / Accounts

Lisa has been an amazing asset to our team, she has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to cruising particularly travelling with her teenagers!

Lisa joined our team in 2017 and her passion for the travel industry reflects in the tailor-made itineraries Lisa prepares for her clients.

Throughout Lisa‘s travel career she has experienced variety of destinations and cruise ships. An important part of Lisa‘s Travel is making sure that special meal requirements are met along the way.

It is so important for her and her family and many others that meal requirements such as gluten free and coeliac meals are provided correctly. This is why cruising is such an easy way for her to communicate this and know that takes away the stress of meal requirements on her holiday.

Lisa’s dream holiday is cruising the world unpacking once and skipping off at each port with her credit card, then enjoying a glass of wine and a beautifully prepared dinner.
