Get To Know Me!
Question: How many cruises have you taken and list the most significant? I have taken over 30 cruises with some of the most significant including escorting those with special needs. Without my planning and escorting these special needs folks they would not be able to travel.
Question: What is your favorite cruise destination and why?I never get tired of Alaska or the Panama Canal. The Alaskan beauty remains a constant WONDER and the Panama Canal a constant MARVEL.
Question: What was the most exciting cruise you ever planned for someone and why? The “First Time” cruise for a client is always the best. I get great joy in making them comfortable for their new adventure for a first cruise is usually the most memorable.
Question: What do you enjoy the most about cruising?The relaxation cannot be beat. The moment I step on the ship the stresses of the past months melt away. While the ports of call are exciting, I can do as much or as little as I like with no schedule. And all this is experienced with fantastic food and pampering service in luxurious surroundings.
Question: What do you believe is the biggest misconception about cruising? The COST! There is no better vacation value than cruising. For the dollar, cruising is far and away cheaper than a land vacation of comparable length or destination.
Question: What are your personal favorite cruise lines/ships?
1: Megaships: Royal Caribbean/Oasis & Allure of the Seas, Freedom of the Seas
2: Medium-size ship: Celebrity/ All Ships; Holland America/ All Ships
3: Small Ship: Wind Star/Wind Surf; Seabourn/Odyssey
Question: What is the best part about being a part of Cruise Everything? The expert training and daily support for timely information keeps me up to the minute on all the travel details needed to be an effective and professional travel advisor.
Question: What has been your proudest moment at Cruise Everything? My proudest moment was receiving a hearty “thank you” from all 76 Parkinson Disease cruisers and their care givers upon their return from their first cruise. To the person they said they would never have had this fantastic cruise experience without Cruise Everything and my wife’s and my encouragement and assistance.
Question: What is the most important piece of advice you ever received? That’s easy. Treat each and every client as if they were your parents. Genuine, knowledgeable, and caring service must be at the heart of every contact with the client.
