About Us: Who’s behind holidaysatsea.co.uk?

We are Gav and Luke!

We started cruising in 2014 by doing a mini break on P&O Aurora. Love was in the air and we fell in love with the ship and cruising. Living in the port town of Milford Haven there must be something that draws us to ship life!

We like making videos of our cruises, they may not be to everyone’s tastes but they are our way of remembering the great times we’ve had, checkout and subscribe to our channel by clicking the YouTube link at the top of this page.

We married in May 2016 and honeymooned on Britannia to the Norwegian Fjords, our favourite cruise yet.

We may not be the youngest cruisers but we are trying to break the stereotype that cruising is for retired people.

On a cruise you will normally find us wondering around the ship taking in the atmosphere (and working our way through the cocktails).
