Tampa, Florida Travel Agent

An independent agent with Cruises & Tours, Unlimited in Jacksonville, FL, a Travel Leaders Network affiliate agency

Cruise and Tour Consultant

It seems as if I have been doing this forever. And I'm glad I stuck with it because it has been a wonderful experience, not only for me but for my wonderful clients who have made this journey with me!

I started in May of 1972 working for a little brick and morter travel agency in Brooklyn. They had no training so I started to train myself by reading all the brochures on the racks. I would read every one of them until I thought I had the slightest idea what I was doing! And then it happenned...my first booking! A two week cruise on Royal's Nordic Prince. Forget the fact is was my Grandmother,  it was still a booking and it got me rolling!

Well that was my start and I haven;t stopped. I've been a travel agent, tour operator, wholesaler, bus company operator and ran a very large cruise agency. But truthfully, my favorite was just being an agent and I have no regrets. Now I have have 4 agents, a blogger, a wedding specialist and event planner and a reality TV show star who will be escorting groups for me!

I have been on 127 cruises and travelled  throught the Caribbean, and have also toured the Middle east, Europe and across the U.S.. I have done it now let me help you!

Great Cruise!

I've known Mark for years and he always does a great job for us. He planned a recent cruise and we had a wonderful time. He also planned our trip out west to the Grand Canyon and Sedona. He really knows his business!!! Be sure to use him!

Mark helped me plan for my wife to go on her very first cruise of her 70+ year life.

Reviewed By Stu "The Taser Guy" Graff - Lutz, Florida | Traveled to
My wife and I went on our first cruise together in 2014. It was booked by Mark because we know and trust him. It was a trial cruise (3 days and 2 nights) to see if my wife could actually go on one since she had NEVER been on a cruise in her life. It was so wonderful that we have had Mark book a family cruise for us this year. We are going on a 5 day - 4 night cruise with NINE of our family members. We are planning many activities together and are certain that this will be filed with happy memories. I have no problem recommending Mark to anyone that is ready for a real vacation. Thank you, Mark....Dottie and Stu Graff

Very knowledgable about all cruise ships

Reviewed By Paul W - Tampa | Traveled to
if you're looking for a cruise you owe it to yourself to contact Mark Stone. It is amazing that he knows almost every detail about every ship and every itenery. Once you let him know what you're looking for in a cruise, he will tell you the best shipping lines and best ships to meet those needs. He will select the best room available on the cruise of your choice. Then he will get you on board ship credits and tell you how to get upgrades. This guy is the ultimate guru of cruising!
