  • A real cool advisor

    Reviewed By Joesph - Oxnard | Traveled to Mediterranean
    We have been working with Joe for 6 to 7 years, he has always been there to advise and to run inference with our cruise lines. He is very responsive and most of the time takes less than a day to respond to our queries. We are Regent snobs and it is always easier to deal with one knowledgeable individual than a host of Regent representatives. These are only some of the reasons Joe will always be our Advisor.

  • RAVES FOR JOE LUCERO

    Reviewed By Charlene - Albuquerque, NM | Traveled to Scandinavia
    We have worked with Joe Lucero for many years. We cannot overstate the value and help he has been to us, in researching, choosing, and booking many cruises of varying lengths. Joe has a vast knowledge of cruise lines, cruise ships, and cruise itineraries all of which he happily shares with us. He is ever diligent in responding to our every telephone call and email. He always deals with us in a timely, straightforward and honest fashion. I am convinced that the prices he quotes to us are the best that can be found. We give Joe Lucero our highest praise and would recommend him to anyone who is thinking of a cruise, and who wishes to receive the best service available.

    With the addition of the Moana Program for our grandson the coordination of our activities with his presented us with opportunities for creativity. Joe rose to the challenge, was patient and understanding with us and put together the trip of a lifetime! Throughout the planning cycle Joe shared his personal experiences aboard the Paul Gauguin which aided in our preparations and shaped our expectations.

    The whole experience was maybe not as personalized as I might wish, but Joe did help make our recent cruise experience logistically smooth. We started off with Joe, thinking we’d do a river Cruise in Portugal - but he helped us get good rooms on the very different OCEAN cruise... which it turns out was a better fit for the 4 of us. His “welcome gift” was also very welcome!!

  • It's a Pleasure to Book a Cruise Through Joe Lucero

    Reviewed By Leonard - Scottsdale, AZ | Traveled to Mediterranean
    Joe Lucero is practically always available by phone. If he's not in when I call, he returns my calls promptly or there is someone else present who can help me. He remembers who I am from year to year and usually remembers my travel preferences. He is very careful to make sure everything is booked to our specifications and that we understand the costs. He checks with us before making any alternative bookings. On our last cruise, he knew we were traveling in Spain before embarking on our cruise. He successfully got a message to us in Barcelona of a last minute change in the place to meet our cruise ship and asked us to let him know that we got his message in time. Joe is always enjoyable to talk to and I feel that he cares about our vacation and appreciates our return business.
