About Nerida

I have travelled many times by Ocean and River Cruising and find it a great way to travel for people of all ages as there is a cruise out there for everyone. I also specialise in luxury travel be it families or couples, groups or singles.

My first travel job was in retail. I loved helping people plan their travel whether it be for leisure or business. I was soon promoted to assistant manager and following this, became the manager of my own store which I started and set up as a brand new office.

After 6 years of doing what I loved; planning dream holidays for my lovely clients, I decided I wanted to experience another side of the industry, which was in the Airline industry. I started working at Malaysia Airlines representing the company as a Sales Manager in Sydney which was a whole new world. I loved the opportunity to work for so many worldwide brands, so I decided to stay in Sydney, which ended up being for 10 years, working for various companies.

Most recently, I worked at Scenic who specialise in luxury escorted travel and River Cruising all around the world. I loved working at Scenic and was employed as a Sales Development Manager there for 5 years.

Throughout my career, I have been lucky enough to travel to so many exciting parts of the world, including the Cook Islands, China, Fiji, Thailand, Hong Kong, Bali, Hawaii, South America, South Africa, Europe, UK and Canada to name but a few.

Previous experience

Flight Centre, Malaysia Airlines, Harvey World Travel, Scenic.

Areas of specialty

My true passion for travel is Cruising and Luxury Travel.
