Our Ambassadors

The whole team at Panache Cruises is passionate about cruising, loves talking about cruising but most of all we enjoy speaking to customers and arranging their next perfect cruise, nothing is too much trouble for us.

Since the creation of Panache Cruises we have been on a personal mission to defend cruise, given the media battering the industry has taken during the pandemic and remind people of the exceptionally innovative and enjoyable product cruise is. We are still big believers that there is a cruise out there for everyone.

We are delighted to have found some likeminded partners, our Ambassadors, who come from different walks of life but all share the same passion for cruise as we do and are equally keen to express their view about our fantastic industry.

Throughout our website, on our blog, our social media pages and our emails to you we will feature ideas, suggestions, inspirations and experiences from each of our Ambassadors to help you choose you next perfect cruise holiday.

Introducing

Gary Buchanan

Gary Buchanan

How fortunate are we to have one of the world’s most recognised, well respected and award winning cruise writers as an Ambassador. He brings a huge amount of cruising experience and is a specialist in the areas of small ship cruising, river cruising and expedition cruising. He is always willing to share his stories, give his thoughts on specific cruise lines or itineraries and of course write exceptional blog posts for us all to enjoy. We particularly like his story about interviewing Nelson Mandela whilst onboard QE2.
