Great Vacation Planner

Reviewed By pokey2 - Satellite Beach,Fl | Traveled to
We have used Cynthia's knowledge and ability to navigate the complex world of booking a cruise to obtain adjoining cabins on a nearly closed out cruise and yet she still found the time to get us the best available price. Her many years of travel experience and life lived assist the customer in locating the perfect cruise experience,

Great agent!!

Reviewed By Tru - Texas | Traveled to
Cynthia is great! A friend found her and she helped us book a Caribbean cruise with 4 other families. I originally was going to book myself but cruises are tricky, so thankful I had a knowledgeable person to take the stress of planning away. I alway know she is doing her very best to get the best rates and value. Our next cruise is this weekend to Alaska with a group of 11. In a week I'm sure we will start planning our next trip!

Saved Us Money On Numerous Trips

Reviewed By sg - Colorado | Traveled to
A few years ago, we liked the pricing that Cynthia found for us, and since then have been checking with her when we plan trips. She saved us money in creative ways that we would not have though of ourselves, and so I enthusiastically refer her to my friends. I also like that she said we have her phone number, if there is any problem to give her a call, even after we board the ship. One time we did have to, and she took care of the issue for us. She is also very available and answers calls or returns calls in the evening from her home office as well. We appreciate that, because sometimes, you don't want to wait for an answer. I don't like hearing when I call other agents that the office is only open 8-5 eastern time, when we live in the mountain zone region and it's only 3 pm.

Our Cruising BFF!

Reviewed By Two Chinas - Oceanside, NY | Traveled to
After taking our first cruise 10 years ago, we fell in love with it. In fact, we just booked number 23! A few years ago, we connected with Cynthia, and she has been our favorite agent ever since. She is not only extremely knowledgeable at what she does, she truly cares about her clients. She is always willing to do research to help us find the best deal, for the best price. And whenever we contact her, she gets back to us right away. We have recommended her agency to our family and friends, who are also also extremely pleased! In addition to their receiving excellent service, Cynthia will sometimes throw in an OBC for us, for sending their business her way. She always goes above and beyond to make her clients satisfied and happy. Although we live across the country from each other, we consider Cynthia to be not only our travel agent, but also our friend; she's the best!

Cynthia is Top Notch!!

Reviewed By Happy Cruiser - Hazet, NJ | Traveled to
I never met a travel agent more knowledgeable than Cynthia. She's always pleasant to speak to and she makes you feel comfortable, even if you have a bevy of questions about your trip/cruise. A few times I had contacted her after business hours, and she always took the call, and helped me with any last minute changes. My husband and I were so impressed when Cynthia called to inform us that our cruise dropped their prices and she saved us a huge amount of money, and that wasn't the first time! Cynthia has planned our past three cruises and three future cruises and we are so delighted to have her as our travel agent.

I am so fortunate that I "found" Cynthia when planning a cruise for four adults. She helped so much, got us great rooms, gave us onboard cash to use and saved us from paying tax! Plus I emailed her a lot with questions and she responded very quickly and was full of information. Will definitely use her again!

Reviewed By Horea - Morgan Hill, CA | Traveled to
I've used Cynthia to book four cruises for me and every time I have been very satisfied with her responsiveness (e-mail, texts) throughout the day, very knowledgeable about the ships with tips on what rooms are best. Most importantly she is very trustworthy and is not pushy to try and book a deal. I have recommended her to friends and would recommend anyone reading this to give her a try.

Cynthia does it all! Leave the work to her and relax.

Reviewed By Kmfleet - Wilson NC | Traveled to
After a friend recommended Cynthia, I decided to let her book our second cruise, and now our third and fourth cruises. I call or email her, tell her what I want, and sit back and wait for my sail dates. She watches for price drops, upgrades, anything that needs to be handled is done by her. I have called her a few times with questions, and even though she is on the opposite coast, she always answers! (I try to be mindful of the 4 hour difference.) Cynthia is very knowledgeable about destinations and loves to share her experiences. I highly recommend giving her a try, You will be glad you did.

Superior Agent

Reviewed By marymarie - Eagan, MN | Traveled to
Could not ask for a better agent. Responsive, accurate and dependable. She checks the options and then puts it in writing for you to review. After you book she continues to check for a lower price. If the price drops she calls the cruise line and gets you the discount. No high pressure. Just good service. Won't use another agent. She has booked for us 4 times. Great perks too.

Honeymoon cruises

Reviewed By Jan - Savannah GA | Traveled to
Cynthia is the agent/friend everyone should be blessed enough to have! There is above and beyond, and then there is Cynthia 10 spots above that!! We had 2 of our 4 children get married in the past couple of years. We used her for both of their honeymoon cruises. There was not one thing left to chance. She handled everything - even checking to see if fares went lower after our purchase and getting that difference taken care of for us. If you want a vacation that you can relax and not worry about the details...she's your girl;)

The BEST travel agent ever!!

Reviewed By Colleen - Wilson, NC | Traveled to
Cynthia is such an awesome travel agent I don't know where to start! Several years ago I found Cynthia through a cruise competition service and it was the best thing that ever happened to my travel booking experiences. I've used Cynthia to book three different cruises and have referred numerous friends to her. They have subsequently used her services and were equally pleased with her in-depth knowledge and ability to not only help book a vacation but to ensure that we always got the lowest possible rate. She's THE BOMB and I wouldn't even think about using anyone else for my vacation plans!

Cynthia was so knowledgable about my cruise! The thing I appreciated the most is when she didn't know, she didn't make something up. She actually researched and found the answer to my question.

Goes above and beyond

Reviewed By Terry - Sebring, FL | Traveled to
Cynthia always goes above and beyond in making sure her guests are taken care of and that they have the correct information for their trips. My most recent trip included the difficult task of making sure my husband's service dog was accepted and ready to cruise. Now mind you this was a cruise that we booked at the last minute and by that I mean within 13 days of cruising. Cruising with a service dog can be confusing and yesterday when we received word that we needed an international health certificate for the dog because we are going to Cozumel...I went into a tail spin knowing that it takes at least two to three days to get that type of certificate. Cynthia spent many hours calling the USDA office today to find out exactly what was needed for us to go into the port in Cozumel. I'm happy to say that things were not as difficult as first lead to believe and hubby's service dog will indeed be accompanying us on the trip. I will only use Cynthia when booking travel! And we have recommended her to many of our friends.
