I was a police officer for 40 years and received the Australian Police medal (APM). After I retired I was retained by Gordon Parr as a cruise presenter. I have a huge amount of respect for Gordon. He is a fine English gentleman, excellent communicator, trustworthy and his word is his bond. Gordon always went the extra mile to ensure the many cruises I presented on ran smoothly and he is held in the highest of regard by presenters and cruise companies alike.

Before meeting Gordon I was already an after dinner speaker, actress and author. What did not know was what cruise companies want, as topics for keynote lecturers. Gordon guided and advised me on suitable themes to entertain inform and inspire all nationalities and age groups. His warm encouragement enabled me to enjoy visits to the Caribbean, Mediterranean, Iceland and Ireland, with the Canaries soon. Christine Dawe (UK)

Working with Gordon and his team is a thoroughly enjoyable and rewarding experience. Gordon quickly establishes a relationship and gives advice in a clear, friendly and professional manner. The welcome given on boarding makes one feel at home as a valued member of the team. Although sea days are busy, port days are invariably free with opportunities to escort passengers on shore excursions. I am grateful for the cruising opportunities over the past five years.
