Our Staff


Julie Richards is Head of Freighter Expeditions (Formally Freighter Cruises). She has quietly built her extraordinary depth of knowledge in this highly  specialised area of maritime travel over more than 20 years.  Julie has first name access to all the shipping lines around the world that continue to take fare paying passengers.

Not only does she know the shipping lines, she knows their ships and even a number of their captains.  She provides highly accurate advice about what to expect from your proposed voyage.

In addition to cargo ships she also closely follows other forms of authentic maritime travel such as tall ships, expedition voyages, river cruises and even canal boats. 

She is able to give her clients unique experiences that no other travel agent, online or offline, can deliver.

Our team of advisors work closely with Julie to make things happen - to plan and deliver itineraries for many of the Freighter experiences.
