Jennie Bond, our Cruise Miles Ambassador, and the Reader Offers team formed a close partnership back in 2012 when she became the face of our innovative rewards programme Cruise Miles. We asked Jennie about her love of cruising, and here's what she said:
"I love to cruise. There's something so romantic about gliding through open seas. It gives me a real sense of space and freedom. It's incredibly relaxing and so enjoyable to pull back the curtains every morning and find a new place has come to visit you.
I've been cruising for around 15 years and have been fortunate to have taken wonderful voyages, leaving me with memories to treasure. Through my association with the Royal family, I was involved in the Queen's Diamond Jubilee celebrations in Southampton which saw the three Cunard Queens together – a sight to behold.
When we asked Jennie why she had chosen to be the face of Cruise Miles, here's what she said: "Holidays are a real luxury and, in the current climate, we all need to be a little more selective about with whom we spend our pennies. There is a lot to be said for being loyal and I believe people need a good reason. Cruise Miles gives me a wonderful excuse to take more cruise holidays, and as a member I can really treat myself, knowing that next time I book I can take advantage of so many great benefits."
Since beginning her role as Ambassador, Jennie has attended a number of our exclusive events, and enjoys meeting our clients, who share her passion for travel.
"Reader Offers really do look after their clients' holidays as if they were their own; I've taken a number of cruises with them, and they really are super. If you love to cruise, and want to benefit from the unbiased advice and expertise, and save money on your cruises, join Cruise Miles, like I have."

Well done Reader Offers in rewarding customer loyalty."
"We have immensely enjoyed the three ROL cruises we have travelled on in the last 12 months, so much so that we have booked a further three for the year to come. Each of these cruises were remarkable value for money and has enabled us to see more of the world than we thought we would ever get to see. Thank you ROL for making all the bookings so efficiently and for operating the excellent Cruise Miles scheme."
John & Sheila Hider
"Reader Offers and Cruise Miles make so much sense for cruisers. It costs nothing to be a member and the Cruise Miles accumulated may be used on discounting a future cruise, upgrading or towards onboard spend, and the Cruise Miles build up simply by taking part. The fact that I decide when and on what I use my Cruise Miles is brilliant. Other than the financial benefits the staff at Reader Offers are so knowledgeable, it is always a good experience when talking to them and they are available seven days a week. As a widower I know that they will ensure I get the best available fare for a single traveller. Well done Readers Offers."
Mr Cooley, Barton-on-Sea
"Since the introduction of the Cruise Miles Scheme, travellers booking with Reader Offers not only can take advantage of great offers on price, car parking and onboard spend, but can also collect Cruise Miles every time they book. The Cruise Miles Team have always been so very helpful, taking time explain options and to research possible destinations for me, and then patiently sorting out the details and best possible cabin! Before Christmas, with the team’s help and guidance, I was able treat myself and a friend to a mini cruise to a Christmas Market using Cruise Miles. I have enjoyed saving and using my Cruise Miles!"
Mrs Ruck, Brinkworth
