Our background

After 19 years in the Travel Industry I have made the big bold move to go it alone! 

I opened the doors to my gorgeous new office here at 25 Bank Street, Whangarei on the 17th February 2020! 

My vision is to make Travel and Cruise HQ THE place to find yourselves booking your holidays.  The HEAD QUARTERS for some of the best deals in the Travel and Cruise industry! 


I derived this from my own personal values – and also feedback from my own customers from their personal dealings with me. 

Travel is my Passion
Great Service is my Priority
Your Satisfaction is what I strive for !

I specialise in cruising. Cruising is just part of this special industry that I love to talk about and have experienced myself !

It is the fastest growing industry – with more and more Cruise Ships being created to meet the massive demand. 

I have traveled to many corners of the World and have a lot of knowledge to share with you, so come and have a friendly chat anytime! 

Over the past 10 years my partner and I have travelled to some amazing destinations all over the world organised by Shannell. Each trip was planned flawlessly and stress free for us so we just kept going back to Shannell. Shannell became not just our travel advisor but a valued friend. Shannell is professional, honest, reliable, knowledgeable, a good listener and strives to make each journey memorable. It has been our pleasure to work beside Shannell and plan our trips. I look forward to many more magical travels in the future and supporting Shannell in her new venture in TravelcruiseHQ. Thanks Shannell
