The pair celebrate their 21st wedding anniversary today.

The cruise is on Viking’s new itinerary to Cuba in 2017 — and they’re already planning a 16th.

Their first cruise was the Elegant Elbe in 2011 — meaning they will have managed an impressive 14 cruises in just five years.

When asked why they had booked another Viking cruise, Sheila said: “That’s an easy question to answer because Viking offers the complete package: excellent service, excellent staff who cannot do enough for you, the superb quality and attention to detail onboard the ships. For us stepping onto a Viking ship is like going home”

Gibson was a Viking Longship godmother earlier this year.

At the time, she described the experience as being “truly awesome”.

“It is a fantastic honour for me to be asked to be godmother of the Vilhjalm,” she added. “I’ve been working in the travel industry for 40 years and it’s great to have the support and recognition from a trusted brand like Viking.”

Gibson also won a lifetime achievement award at the Cruise International Awards in 2016.
