Sometimes you have to toot your own horn, but around here we’re lucky to work with amazing clients who are not only a joy to plan for, but generous with their feedback after a cruise!
They always let us know what could be better, so our hosts can make adjustments, but our favorite is that little pat on the back which keeps us all focused on providing superior service.

Every detail from pre-planning to post cruise followup was flawless and demonstrated the kind of commitment to excellence in travel that we come to expect today. Lynn Dee “gets” luxury travel: she attends to every travel nuance with consulate professionalism, experience and courtesy.
Advance planning is in-depth and her access to custom tour professionals (domestic and abroad) makes a huge difference in our travel experience. She invests the time to understand how we like to travel and delivers every time. Especially appreciate her mid-trip and post trip followup/follow through. Can’t imagine working with anyone else.

Joe is always helpful in planning our cruises. He makes great suggestions, and is very helpful in interacting with the cruise line to our benefit. He responds to our inquires very quickly and with accurate information. We will work with Joe as long as we are cruising.

I have used Joe Lucero’s services since 2007 and have been very happy with all the many cruises that he has booked for me. I have nearly 600 days cruising with Holland America and many days with other cruise companies. All these cruises since 2007 have been booked with Joe. Joe has provided me with excellent advice on my bookings, especially when things didn’t go as expected. He is a good guy to have on your side.

This was the 5th cruise that we worked on with Diane Ritchey. Everything was done professionally and promptly, regardless of it was a quick 6 night cruise including Cuba or a 2 month Grand Voyage to SE Asia. We couldn’t be more pleased. This particular quick cruise turned out to be more complicated with the new restrictions regarding Cuba but we just filled in the paper work and the tour was quite good. We are using Cruise Specialists and Diane again for our crossing Nov 2018.

This was my first experience with Cruise Specialists and I couldn’t be happier with their service. Bridgett was always patient with my myriad of questions and always quick to respond to emails. I’ve already booked my next cruise with her and can’t imagine working with anyone else. She is highly recommended!
Matt Caplinger was great to work with. Very responsive to any questions we had and proactive in checking on fare changes and any updates from the cruise line. He was very helpful in helping us choose both a cruise line [AmaWaterways] and itinerary [Danube] for our first European wine river cruise. I would highly recommend Matt and will work with him again on a future cruise.

Sharon Whiting was right on top of everything related to our 2 most recent trips through Cruise Specialists — a 10 day Silversea Western Caribbean cruise with my husband and 2 nieces, followed shortly thereafter by my solo 2 week Western Pacific Zegrahm expedition on the Caledonian Sky ship to Papua New Guinea, several Micronesian islands, ending in Palau. She took care of all the paperwork for both, checked regularly on details, and answered all my queries quickly and helpfully. When I realized a few weeks after I’d returned home from the Caribbean cruise that I’d left a favorite jacket in Silversea’s hotel in Panama City, Sharon was especially helpful in communicating directly with the hotel personnel who quickly located the jacket and arranged to ship it back to our home in Maryland. Hats Off to Sharon!!!
