Diane Ibson

Personal Travel Advisor

I was born to be in the 'Travel Business', and the Blue Bay Team often joke that I spend more time in other countries than I do in the UK. Whilst on my own holidays I will often drag my husband along to hotel site inspections! The Caribbean is my favourite destination, however cruise is my first passion; what I don’t know about cruise ships is not worth knowing!

I am Blue Bay Travel’s 'Wedding Co-ordinator', and having been married in the Caribbean myself I can give you first hand advice and information.
