Captain Julian Burgess

Meet the Captains

If you get up early, when most of the guests are still asleep, you might see Captain Burgess walking around the deck, in the gym, or a little later, cycling around that day’s port. He really is our keep fit Captain!

Captain Burgess hails from East Sussex, and was first inspired to try life at sea by his brother, who was already working on ships as a Communications Officer. Beginning as a cadet aged just 17, he has gone on to a prestigious career working for P&O Cruises, Cunard and Princess, with the past 12 years spent in command as a ship Captain.

And those sports he’s passionate about? Not only does Captain Burgess love exploring the destinations on his bike, but is also a big fan of golf, tennis and skiing, while a newer interest is exploring Central Europe with his family in a motorhome!

With his wealth of experience, passion for travel and warm personality, he has fast become a firm favourite with guests aboard our boutique cruises.
