Gills Cruises overview

History
Gills Cruises originally started out as bakery in 1953. Robert Gill, the company founder, later on branched out to the travel business, initially offering train tickets. Business was brisk and soon Gill went full time selling travel products and services. The company's offerings eventually grew and by 1957, it was starting to offer cruises and other holiday packages. In 1989 Robert Gill decided to retire from the company. He then picked his son Alistair to take control over operations. In 2005 Gill's Travel was renamed to Gill's Cruise Centre, focusing on cruise holiday packages. Awards and Recognition
Gill's Cruises is one of the leading cruise retailers in the UK and sends an estimated 60,000 people to holiday vacations annually. South West Complete Solution has previously recognized the company as its top agent. A similar award was bestowed by Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises to Gill's Cruises. Its award winning call centre is manned by highly skilled and knowledgeable personnel who are trained to dispense advice on all matters regarding cruise holidays. Commitment
