World Cruise Expertise Details

Cruise Specialists clients at Machu Picchu

A World Cruise is a unique travel opportunity that some people spend years dreaming about. It’s a chance to cruise around the world and visit dozens of destinations on one trip, while enjoying the special treatment from a pampering crew and feeling the camaraderie of traveling the globe with like-minded people.

Because of the length of a World Cruise and the financial investment, it’s imperative that you choose the right cruise line, cruise ship and itinerary, along with other details such as the stateroom or suite that matches your preferences. Through the years, by sending hundreds of travelers on World Cruises and listening to the feedback of my clients, and by working closely with World Cruise contacts at every cruise line, I have an innate knowledge of World Cruises and how to optimize your experience. 

I’ll Walk You through the World Cruise Process 

Whether you are considering a World Cruise for the first time or have completed more than one, there are unique benefits you receive by working with me.  First, if you are new to World Cruising, I’ll walk you through the process, from start to finish. All questions are good questions and I can answer them for you. You may have lots of “what if” questions — from what you’ll do on board for several months (there is an abundance of activities), if you will get a chance to meet other people on board, what certain destinations are like, and I can answer them all. When you work with me, I like to say, “I’m your person.” In other words, I’m here for you, from now up until your cruise, and until you come home. For most people, it is a comforting feeling to have that type of personal service. 

Common questions may also revolve around various payment options, trip protection, what to pack, getting in touch with family or friends while you’re traveling, and more. You are in good hands with me, and the fact that I am backed by Cruise Specialists makes it even better. 

My agency, Cruise Specialists, is the World Leader in World Cruising. Our World Cruise program is now more than 30 years in existence and is the most admired in the business. We provide a hosted World Cruise each year on Holland America Line, which provides you with a dedicated Voyage Host who helps create camaraderie on board and leads exclusive Cruise Specialists shore events. We have small group overland tours available, a welcome aboard reception and cocktail parties, special gifts, and a bon voyage event with pre-cruise hotel stay that helps everyone in our group get acquainted.  

In 2022, Cruise Specialists is also the exclusive agency to have a Voyage Host on the Oceania Cruises 180-day World Cruise. You will receive exclusive benefits only by reserving your cruise with us, and I’m excited to share more details with you. 

For Repeat World Cruisers

Once you have completed one World Cruise, I can provide services to you that are not available elsewhere. For starters, I can always offer you our unique hosted program as mentioned above, on select cruise lines. Beyond that, the relationship that we build pays off dividends for you. 

With each passing cruise, I understand more about your preferences. I gain a better understanding of which cabin you want, how you want your room set up, your dining preferences and more. It’s developing relationships that really pay off for World and Grand Voyages. They are such special cruises. 

More Cruise Specialists Benefits 

Regardless of which World Cruise you sail on, our dedicated Shore Excursion Manager can plan a special shore tour just for you, or arrange for a private car and driver in a certain city you are eager to explore on your own terms. We also have other specialists who work behind the scenes in operations and sales who assist with cruise documents and more, to really save you time and make the whole experience more convenient. 

Our executives are also constantly in touch with each of our World Cruise line partners to ensure the pricing we’re offering is the most competitive and that our clients receive the special, yet discreet attention they deserve. 

I’m truly dedicated to creating the perfect World Cruise experience for you. We will start with a phone call or email, and from there I work to create a lasting relationship so that each time we work together is even better than the previous one.

    Reviewed By Melton - Tampa, FL | Traveled to South America
    LynnDee was most excellent! This is the second time we’ve used her expertise in booking a cruise. She’s responsive, thorough and friendly. We plan to continue to cruise and will always book them using LynnDee. One of the gals traveling with us on this most recent cruise complained that the person she used wasn’t nearly as helpful as LynnDee. She’s committed to going to LynnDee the next tine she cruises also. I also have to give LynnDee ‘props’ for having to deal with ‘20 questions’ from both myself and my sister, who was traveling with us. She’s the best!!

    LynDee was essential to our planning, since this was our first major cruise. Her patience with the details was admirable. All her Guidance was helpful, and our travel went as she assured us it would. We have already recommended LynnDee to our neighbors and friends in the DC area.
