About Cruising Holidays
This website is owned and operated by Blue Water Holidays Ltd, whose companies have marketed worldwide holidays afloat since 1996. Blue Water Holidays has specialised in river, luxury and small ship cruises since 2002.
In summer 2013 we bought and refurbished new offices at Bowers Wharf, Skipton, North Yorkshire, with our own frontage on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.
Blue Water Holidays Ltd is a member (K9428) of ABTA, The Travel Association, the organisation which represents UK travel agents and tour operators responsible for the sale of around over 90% of package holidays and approximately 45% of independent travel arrangements.
ABTA’s role is to ensure that the customer benefits from consistently high standards of trading practice in the travel industry and that the standards of service and business throughout the membership are of the highest calibre. As such, ABTA’s famous symbol has come to represent choice and value.
ABTA Members operate under a strict Code of Conduct. The Code of Conduct means that every ABTA member has to work to the highest standards of service and quality. In addition, Blue Water Holiday has lodged a Bond with ABTA to provide full financial security for its customers. More information at www.abta.com.
Many of the flights and flight-inclusive holidays on this website are financially protected by the ATOL scheme, but ATOL protection does not apply to all holiday and travel services listed on this website. Please ask us to confirm what protection may apply to your booking. If you do not receive an ATOL Certificate then the booking will not be ATOL protected. If you do receive an ATOL Certificate but all the parts of your trip are not listed on it, those parts will not be ATOL protected. For more information about financial protection and the ATOL Certificate go to: www.atol.org.uk/ATOLCertificate
