Get To Know Me!
Question: How many cruises have you taken and what were the most significant? I have taken over one hundred cruises since 1992 as a founding member of the Cruise Everything staff. Some of the most memorable cruises have been on the Norwegian Wind. My favorite ports of call that I recommend to my customers are Honduras, Belize City, Cozumel, and Grand Cayman.
Question: What is your favorite cruise destination and why? The ship itself! Why? Because the ship offers so many things to discover! The exquisite dining, the grand style of service, the shows and entertainment, the recreational facilities, and the friendliness onboard a cruise ship can make you feel like a king or a queen!
Question: What was the most exciting cruise you ever planned for someone and why? I booked a family of twenty-four in nine owner’s suites for a Norwegian Cruise Line Millennium Cruise. It was the busiest cruise season ever. It was a fun challenge to meet my client’s every need, which we accomplished! What a great start to the new Millennium!
Question: What do you enjoy the most about cruising? I love that fact that you can unpack only one time then experience the service of a Ritz Carlton at a budget fare.
Question: What do you believe is the biggest misconception about cruising? Many people feel there is not enough to do. Well, if ice skating, inline skating, skeet shooting, basketball, tennis, ping-pong, rock-climbing, golf, scuba-diving, snorkeling, shopping, eating, watching eye-popping shows, movies, swimming, people watching, and relaxing in a deck chair with a frosty beverage is not enough to do, well then, yes, you could get bored.
Question: What are your personal favorite cruise lines and ships? I am a big fan of the Royal Caribbean Voyager Class Ships. A great medium sized ship is Holland America’s Statendam. My favorite small ship is the Silver Cloud.
Question: What is the best part about being a part of Cruise Everything? I love being at the front line of the cruise travel industry. Getting the first hand knowledge, information, and most importantly great pricing from all cruise lines and imparting it to the customer is one of my goals.
Question: What has been your proudest moment at Cruise Everything? I once got a group of forty people upgraded from an inside staterooms all the way up to private balcony suites! It was great to be able to add more pleasure to their cruise vacations.
Question: What is the most important piece of advice you ever received? Listen to your customers needs and match them up with the best cruise line that will suit their needs.
