Participate Breweries:
LAGUNITAS BREWING COMPANY: Located in Petaluma, CA, Lagunitas Brewing Company was founded by a group of craft brewers from across the nation in 1993. Lagunitas brews are known for their iconoclastic interpretations of traditional beer styles and quirky, amusingly irreverent text and stories on their packaging. In addition to a variety of year-round brews including their very popular IPA-India Pale Ale and staff favorite New Dogtown Pale Ale, Lagunitas offers a variety of "seasonal" beers throughout the year.

NINKASI BREWING COMPANY: is a craft brewery based in Eugene, Oregon. Named after the Sumerian goddess of beer, Ninkasi was founded in 2006 by Jamie Floyd and Nikos Ridge. The company uses a 50 barrel brewing system, and distributes throughout Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska, and San Francisco. Ninkasi brews are locally inspired and the company is "dedicated to brewing the highest quality craft beers in support of culture, community, and the uniqueness of each individual and their passions." Starting with an IPA (Total Domination), the Ninkasi family of beers has grown to include Tricerahops Double IPA, Believer Double Red, and Oatis Oatmeal Stout, as well as some seasonal brews.

Open Quote  Debra Dickerson is the most outstanding travel person that I have ever worked with. Her accuracy, quality of service, promptness, professionalism, and attention to detail are second to none; she's the best. Debra remembers all of the travel details that are unique to us and provides the best counsel and advice whenever we have questions. Lastly, she is budget conscious, recommending ways to save us money. Cruise Specialists and Debra's cruise prices are typically a lot less expensive than any other sources. Debra Dickerson is the best! Closed Quote

Open Quote  Our Cruise Consultant Lisa Monticello is professional, knowledgeable, and very personable. She is like a cheerful, patient, helpful friend! We have also thoroughly enjoyed Deirdre Irlam as our Voyage Ambassador numerous times. She is very caring, organized, personable and a great representative for Cruise Specialists. We have enjoyed taking the Cruise Specialists half-day excursions! Closed Quote

Open Quote  (Voyage Hosts) Lynn & Buddy are beautiful people – inside and out! Diane has been a terrific advisor, but more importantly – a friend. She has remained patient and kind as I considered every option under the sun. Remarkable woman! I feel like she’s ‘family.’ Closed Quote

Open Quote  Cruise Specialists and Kelli Surdell were excellent! This was our first time using Cruise Specialists, which was recommended to us by Condé Nast magazine. We have since booked two more cruises, and recently referred some friends of ours. Kelli was always very helpful in helping us plan and book our cruise. She also was very patient with us on some last minute changes to our airfare. We look forward to a long relationship with Cruise Specialists.

p.s. We also love receiving the informative newsletters and brochures. We have booked all our cruises as a result of the very informative info. Thank you. Closed Quote

Open Quote  One could not ask for a more devoted representation for their organization than the Cruise Specialists onboard escorts. It was a pleasure to work with all of them. Closed Quote
Marcie Loebensberg
Open Quote  We tell everyone we meet who talks about cruising that Cruise Specialists is the BEST out there! We have signed up for the 2013 World Cruise and while on this one, we talked four more couples into going! No one seems to compare with your itinerary on HAL and when you add in all the ‘extras’ that CS gives, it’s unbeatable combination. Thank you for continuing to be number one! Closed Quote

Open Quote  My experience on the recent Holland America world cruise with Cruise Specialists was the best thing that ever happened to me! I got to explore the world, see new cultures, become more compassionate and self-confident, and learn more about myself. I even met my soul mate and am now engaged to be married! As a 40 year old cruiser, I definitely encourage other younger travelers to embark on a world cruise while they are healthy and physically able to participate in all the shore excursions and adventures that are available on a world cruise itinerary!

Open Quote  Being a Cruise Specialists client feels like you are part of their family. Through the years, I have developed personal relationships with my agent, the onboard escorts, and the entire Cruise Specialists team and know they will put together a great cruise experience for me every time.

Open Quote  We have known Cruise Specialists escorts Kevin LaGraff and Susan Atkins since 2003. Their knowledge of ports and their advice regarding shore excursions is excellent. Closed Quote
Mr. and Mrs. Mike Kinne
Open Quote  Our experience with Cruise Specialists has been on Holland America Grand World Voyages. Excellent Service is another name for Cruise Specialists. The service starts with a "person" answering the telephone. Our Cruise Consultant is knowledgeable, efficient, and with good closure. The cruise escorts are excellent sources of information and guidance during the cruise. The amenities package is generous, and the price of the cruise is competitive. We have been very pleased with the Cruise Specialists service. Closed Quote

Open Quote  I love doing business with Cruise Specialists – I wish I had been in touch with your company years ago. I was extremely pleased with your services and so happy to have met Debra. She is so easy to work with, and now feels like an old friend. I am anxious to get started planning my next voyage! Closed Quote
Diane Love
Open Quote  Having Cruise Specialists escorts gave us a definitely personalized attachment to the cruise, and we loved the ‘extras’, like the CS tours. The special ‘gifts’ were wonderful. The windbreakers were particularly welcome. As usual, we were totally pleased with Cruise Specialists. Thanks for everything. Closed Quote
