Couple book non-stop cruises for two-and-a-half years

A couple who missed out on the joys of cruising during lockdown are now bunkering down and cruising non-stop for two-and-a-half years.

Jessica and Marty Ansen left Brisbane on Princess Cruises’ Coral Princess on June 16 for the beginning of their exciting adventure.

They have previously sailed on 31 cruises with Princess with a whopping 1,173 days at sea and when the resumption of cruises they were ready to get started again. 

From now until August 2024, the loved up couple will be holidaying on the high seas and on a staggering 53 different cruise ships! 

“Cruising offers the ultimate holiday experience. You go onboard, you only unpack once, and you have all this amazing entertainment, exceptional food, great company and you can see the world. And, the crew deliver incredible service - that’s why we cruise,” they said. 

The Ansens booked their two years of back-to-back cruises (795 sea days) - including two round-the-world cruises in 2023 and 2024 – with Brisbane-based family-owned travel agency Clean Cruising.

Martine Hero, the Senior Consultant at Clean Cruising, said the Ansens had always been passionate about cruising and were keen to be back on the water again. 

“For the last two years Marty frequently mentioned all he and Jessica wanted to do was to go cruising again,” he said. 

“Since the announcement of the resumption of cruising we have had an influx of interest and bookings, including those of the Ansens. 

“This extended trip has been in the works for a long time, as have those of many other cruisers. 

“We want to thank our cruise fans for their patience as we get them back doing what they love most.”
