Forget the haters & online users because Dame Helen Mirren loves you all – and by ‘you all’ we mean Travel Agents. Helen Mirren, the Godmother of Scenic Eclipse, loves Travel Agents.

While christening her grand godchild also referred to as the World’s First Discovery Yacht, Helen Mirren took time out to praise the Travel Agents.

Answering a question raised by TW, the multiple award-winning actor (Academy, Tony, Olivier – you name it, she’s won it) revealed that she holds high regards for consultants and believes they’re an “important thing to have”.


Explaining her respect, she said Travel Agents are particularly important for people who travel frequently and especially “when things go wrong”.

“My husband and I rely on our Travel Agent tremendously.”

Spread the word, she loves Travel Agents!

While the actor may use a Travel Agent frequently, the same can’t be said for cruising, which she admits to never having tried.

She told media that although Scenic Eclipse would be her inaugural cruise, she did grow up on sailing boats which travelled along the Thames River.

“Very small boats of only two or three people,” she explained. “With a sail.”
