Bedford travel agent makes it a double at the Cruise Star Award finals


Amy Wright of Select Travel Holidays is celebrating as she’s reached the finals of this year’s Cruise Star Awards in not one, but two, categories.

The awards shine a spotlight on the brightest and best talent in the cruise holiday sector – the ‘ones to watch’ in the industry.

Now in their fourth year, the awards are organised by Cruise Trade News and the judging panel is made up of  specialists and industry experts, together with the magazine’s editors.

Finalists – including Amy – will be invited to a ceremony on Friday 22 November London’s De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms.

The marketing and business development executive is among finalists for the Travel Agent Marketing Star and the Travel Agent Rising Star awards.

“I was a finalist at the 2019 Travel Agent Achievement Awards which recognised my passion for touring and adventure holidays, but as Select Travel Holidays is the home of Cruise Select, cruising will always be an important part of who we are, and something we’ve been specialising in for 20 years now,” said Amy.

“As Bedfordshire’s only accredited CLIA Cruise Master, cruising is another passion of mine, and it’s been an honour to be recognised for my work in cruising too.”
