65 cruises, 9 cruise lines, 23 ships and 123 ports
A few travel advisors have been on dozens of cruises, but most stay with just one or two cruise lines. It is unusual to find a travel advisor who has personal experience on 9 different cruise lines, 23 ships and 123 ports worldwide. This experience makes it possible to help clients select just the right cruise line for their lifestyle and one that visits exactly their area of interest. My first-hand experience in ports of call assures that I can help my clients make the most of their time in each port. Most clients select their cruise based on which ports are visited, but it is good to remember that the ship itself is the place where ¾ of your time will be spent. A cruise can be a major investment and planning the trip carefully makes the difference between a memorable vacation and a disappointment. Personal service and attention to detail will make your cruise vacation easy to plan and a wonderful experience. Visit www.everysailing.com of call 954-817-9042.

My Travel Stories
Carol and I have been on over a dozen cruise lines during our 65 cruises. We truly feel that there are really no bad cruise lines, just guests who picked a cruise line with the wrong style. Cruise lines are like people. No two are the same and the differences can... Read more from my Let's talk about Seabourn Cruise Lines! story.
High on our To Do list for many years was the Norwegian Fjords and Iceland. We have cruised to the region two times and had new sights and experiences each time. Norway greatly deserves its reputation as a scenic paradise with fjords all along the Atlantic coast.
We always thought a fjord... Read more from my Norwegian Fjords and Iceland! story.

Thank you, Gary. We do understand budgets and can work with almost anyone's vacation budget. The only vacation that is a better value than cruising is going to visit Grandma! Remember that I have great airfare pricing too.
Great fun trip
Makes you feel very important would definitely use again
Your repeat business and referrals are greatly appreciated. Carol and I vicariously enjoy each trip that you ask us to plan.
Eell deserved Family vacation
Your review is short, but I appreciate the compliment. Helping you to sort through the cruise line rules and date change was a good learning experience for me too. I am glad that I could save so much through my airfare consolidator for your family.
Cruising for the first time
Thank you so much for your kind words. As you know, first-time cruisers are my favorite. I look back to our first cruises and wish I had known more from the beginning. Carol and I thought we might be presented with a check for dinner. Helping clients get the most from their FIRST cruise is rewarding for us.
We love working with our airline family and are so glad that your last minute Hawaii cruise was a good experience. Thank you for your trust.
Mr. Doyle made our cruise amazing.
I am so glad that you enjoyed the shore excursion that was provided by the Distinctive Voyages program. I try to direct clients to the DV program because of the extra no-cost amenities. An on-board host can add much value to the cruise experience. Your repeat business flatters me. Thank you so much.
Best experience of our lives!
Carol and I LOVE first-time cruisers. We enjoyed the time you met with us and asked so many good questions. The tips we gave you on airfare and hotels helped you avoid many mistakes that we have made ourselves in the past. It was a privilege helping with your first trip to Europe AND your first cruise. I hope you are already planning your next trip.
Philip Doyle = Above and Beyond Service
That being said, my personal preference would have been to go with Phil becasue of his tenacity and desire for my business. I am convinced that his service would have been above and beyond. I will surely contact Philip next time I am looking for travel plans. And I am not counting him out of this race either. He may come up with something better before my final deposit is required!!!
I am blushing. I have a boutique travel business and tend to only work with a few clients at a time. This, plus my personal travel experience, makes it possible for me to listen carefully and respond with timely and reliable information. As you discovered, pricing doesn't usually vary that much, but service level can vary a lot.
Phil takes care of the details
Essential to planning the details is first-hand experience. After 65 cruises, I tend to know what the highlights are and also what can go wrong. If I can save a client from the potential bad experiences, I have earned their repeat business. It is always a pleasure planning a trip for your family.
Our best trip: Azamara Journey—Greek islands
Carol and I LOVE first-time cruisers that we can share our experience with. Cruising is the best vacation value anywhere. It is the best when new cruisers have an excellent experience. The text you sent me from the Greek Islands saying that you were having a great time made my day!
planned a great trip
Family cruises are a large investment and I am pleased that you trust the details to me. There are literally thousands of cruise sailing every year and the choices can be overwhelming. I plan your trips like I am taking my own family. As you know, sometimes I have rates that are better than those offered directly by the cruise lines. I appreciate your business and referrals.
Philip always finds the best cabins and deals!
I learned years ago that relationships often start based on price, but develop based on service. I always appreciate the chance to do the research and present choices that match the client's vacation plan. Your praise makes me blush....
The planning was effortless !
I never started out to be a travel advisor, but after 35 cruises friends were asking for my advice and input and a business was born. I plan client's vacations with the same care and attention that I devote to my own trips. I ask a lot of questions so I can narrow the search to exactly the right selections. Thank you for the kind words.
Best Travel Agent Ever!!
You honor me with your repeat business and I love planning trips for you and your family. Carol and I hope to be able to join you on a future trip. We love friends who share our passion for seeing new parts of the world.
