We have thoroughly enjoyed Deirdre Irlam as our Voyage Ambassador numerous times. She is very caring, organized, personable and a great representative for Cruise Specialists. (Cruise Consultant) Lisa is professional, knowledgeable, and very personable. Like a cheerful, patient, helpful friend. We will always call Lisa Monticello! We enjoyed Cruise Specialists half-day excursions and appreciated them!

(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.’

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.

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.
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!

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!
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.
The staff at Cruise Specialists are not only friendly and great to work with, but they get back to me right away with any questions or concerns I may have about my upcoming cruise vacation.
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.

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.

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!
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.
Edward and Janet B.
This was my first experience both with a long term cruise and with Cruise Specialists and I loved it all, and certainly want to do it again in the future. It was a pleasure to meet and have the escorts!
It is nice to work with Cruise Specialists because they are warm, helpful, attentive and very professional. They make cruising a real pleasure.
