Best Carnival Cruise vacation

Reviewed By Lisa Griswold - Montfort, WI | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Tricia is amazing! I have worked with a couple other agents and didn’t quite feel like a priority, more of just a number. With Tricia, she kept us up to date with our travel arrangements, sent little helpful emails, always had quick responses to questions I had and just kept in contact with us before and after or trip. She made keeping in contact easy, all by email which was perfect for me. I recommend her to anyone that asks about our trips! Thank you again Tricia! You are truly the best!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

This was our first time working with Tricia and we were really impressed with her timely and professional customer service. She was very attentive to all our 'quirky' questions and provided us with the best in our Southern Caribbean 8 day cruise details. Her follow-up and heads up to deadlines was perfect and kept us on track from the time we booked (January) to our trip date (April). Her extra attention to our special event (40th wedding anniversary) was a wonderful surprise - Thank you!

Excellent Service for a Last Minute Trip!

Reviewed By Kat - Madison, Wisconsin | Traveled to California ~ USA
Tricia was able to find an affordable flight for me last minute when I was unable to find anything affordable on line. She also went above and beyond and found me seats that were comfortable given me extra long legs and sent me a weather update before I left so that I'd know what to expect on arrival. It made for a very smooth trip during a situation that was otherwise stressful, requiring travel at the last minute.
