World Cruise & Hosted Cruise Expert

Part of the fun of travel is the planning aspect of it, and that is made easier by working with a dedicated Cruise Consultant such as myself. I am a World Cruise expert and excel in arranging long voyages that allow you to travel the world, while creating your ideal home-away-from-home on board. Whether you are considering it for the first time or are a repeat World Cruiser, planning a World Cruise is a complex yet special experience that requires a professional, and I’m uniquely qualified to do just that. Another one of my specialties is hosted cruises. A hosted cruise is a great way to enjoy camaraderie and have an extra layer of reassurance on your cruise by sailing with a Voyage Host provided by our agency, and it’s complimentary. You can read more in my Hosted Cruise bio, below. It’s my pleasure to listen to you, make recommendations based on your preferences, and utilize the many resources available to me at Cruise Specialists to arrange the perfect getaway!

  • Highly Recommend LynnDee King

    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. One of her best attributes, is, when we had a question, and there were many, she was always pro-active with the answer, not waiting to look into things. Very reassuring.
