Cruise, All-Inclusive and Disney Specialist

As the owner and operator of my own travel consultant business, I don't just work from 9 to 5 for my clients. Instead, I pride myself on being there whenever my clients need me, even if that means taking calls and answering emails early in the morning and late at night. 

I have even worked with clients on weekends and holidays because -- obviously -- people don't just travel during so-called "normal business hours." I have even worked with anxious clients on Christmas day and during times when I, myself, have been out of the country.

As someone who travels often, I truly understand why my clients may need immediate answers about an upcoming trip or why they may suddenly want me to book a certain excursion before it fills up. That is why I always go above and beyond for all of my clients.

Although I enjoy arranging itineraries for all types of vacations, including retail cruises, group tours, honeymoon getaways and all-inclusive resorts, my main specialty is booking interline cruise travel for airline employees, including FedEx and UPS personnel.

Before becoming a travel agent, I had worked for the airlines, so arranging interline travel is something I have done for myself as well as for my clients.

I have a true passion for traveling and have journeyed throughout:

  • Europe
  • England
  • Central America
  • the Caribbean
  • cruises to Jamaica, Costa Rica, Belize, Honduras and Bolivia
  • European river cruises .

I am also an avid scuba diver, so I love booking dive trips for my clients and then sharing my experiences and knowledge about dive sites and operators with my clients

When I am not traveling or working, my wife and I enjoy showing our beloved dogs. But, of course, you can always reach me even if I'm about to hit the show ring because if you allow me to do your travel arrangements, I promise to always be there for you and to provide the one-to-one personal attention that you and your dream trip deserve.
 

Testimonial

"Prompt response to original request. I had input some wrong info and despite this, Larry was totally understanding and continued to provide exemplary service even though the commissions would be less. It involved complicated tickets involving minors traveling unaccompanied internationally from different cities. He handled the arrangements quite effectively and worked well with the teens to arrange the details around rendezvous and pricing and ticketing. Highly recommend and without hesitation. I'm planning on using him for some upcoming international business travel to Europe. Was most impressed with his promptness, flexibility and quick solutions that were priced within a teenage budget. Excellent overall experience!"  From CHRIS

Bucket List Trip

Reviewed By Judy M. - Spencer, MA | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Larry was a huge help with our travel planning from start to finish. I told him generally what we wished to do within a reasonable time frame, and he made recommendations that were realistic, practical, and helpful that enabled our once-in-a-lifetime trip to Alaska to come off without a hitch. He kept in touch via text and/or email throughout our trip, advising us of itinerary changes that we otherwise wouldn't have known about. He was a professional whose help I will continue to enlist for future travel.

Larry Abramson responded:
Thank you for your kind comments Judy. I try to insure that all my clients have a smooth, uneventful trip so when your return flights were delayed, I wanted to keep you updated as soon as I was made aware of the situation. I'm glad that you had a wonderful time and will always be available to assist you in the future.

Larry planned our cruise

Reviewed By Vickie Miller - Isle of Palms. SC | Traveled to
Larry provided valuable assistance. When talking to Larry I mentioned my brother and sister in law were coming from Seattle To visit myself and my parents in South Carolina. They planned to stay for 45 days! I asked Larry how to entertain them for all this time. Without any hesitation Larry stated a cruise! Which leave from Charleston, where I live! Larry worked his magic and arranged every thing! And there were some pleasant surprise during the cruise Larry arranged for us. For example, surprising us with a special desert to celebrate my parents 60th wedding anniversary! We all had a great time. Thanks to Larry!

I initially reached out to Larry rather than the travel agent we usually use because my mother and stepfather used him to book a cruise. He was very friendly and helpful. He was able to help get the information we needed and booking was without hassle. I highly recommend him and will use him as my travel agent from now on.

Honeymoon

Larry has the patience of a saint. Honestly, we weren't trying to be difficult or too particular; we just wanted our honeymoon to be perfect. Towards the end we were seriously ready to give up and not take one because we thought nothing was going to work out. Larry stuck with us, kept sending us multiple options because he wanted this to be a special time for us, and he helped us find something we both wanted. We're excited about the trip he helped us plan and can't wait to get on the plane! Thank you so much Larry for your patience, persistence, and perseverance!

Holden Family Vacation

Reviewed By MandyG - Lake Cormorant, MS | Traveled to Cozumel ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Larry was great to work with. He booked a cruise to Mexico for our 14 member family vacation. He also booked our Hotel and train tickets to New Orleans. When our cruise tickets went down he notified us of the lower prices even though that meant his commission would be lowered. It also did not cost us any additional money to use him as our travel agent as the rates were the same and I did not have to do all the work. I would absolutely recommend Larry for all our travel needs!

Took all the anxiety away!

Reviewed By Gene - Thaxton, MS | Traveled to Oahu Island ~ Hawaii ~ USA
This is my first trip of this sort and I related this to Larry when we first communicated. He quickly allayed my fears. If our trip is as enjoyable as the experience of planning it, I'll be more than a happy camper. Larry has been very attentive to our wishes from the first email until the finalizing of the tours and the travel arrangements. We even changed dates on him twice and he never blinked. He just arranged new travel and accomodations and emailed me the new itinerary. He asked all the right questions to be sure that I had thought through some of the arrangements of our tours and headed off one oversight on my part that would have been uncomfortable at best, and a downright calamity if Larry had not brought it to my attention. I can now look forward to a great trip. The pleasurable experience has already begun.

Wonderful Service

Reviewed By Tommy - Olive Branch MS | Traveled to Aruba ~ Caribbean
I can't say enough good things about Larry Abramson and how he helped my wife and I on our recent cruise. On day 4 of a 7 day cruise, my wife got sick and we had to get off and go to a hospital in Aruba. The ship left 2 hours after we got off. I had no internet access just a cell phone. I called Larry at 11:00 pm and he answered the phone. GOD BLESS! He found us a room for the night and booked flights to get us home the next day. He called or texted through out the day to make sure we got home safe. He even offered to pick up at the airport if we needed transportation. We weren't getting in until midnight. We didn't need transportation but just the thought was so caring.
I've used several travel agents in the past, but will never use anyone else but North Mississippi Travel.

Thanks so much Larry. You truly are the best.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Larry Abramson responded:
I was happy to be there to help though I wish you hadn't needed it. The main thing is that your wife is doing better and you got home safely. I am very thankful that you purchased the travel protection we offer through John Hancock so you will get some of the "emergency" money you spent back.

An unforgettable honeymoon!

Reviewed By Eden - Bogue Chitto, Ms | Traveled to Costa Rica ~ Central America
I contacted multiple travel agents to try and plan our honeymoon. They threw me an idea or two but were short, choppy and just didn't really seem to be eager to sell me a trip. Once I contacted Larry was when I knew I was in business! I must say I was very picky in what we wanted. When I gave Larry the list of things I was expecting, within a few hours he had me around 6 or 7 different trips/ destinations I could choose from! He went over and beyond to help plan our honeymoon. We ended up deciding to go to Costa Rica (Larry also suggested this destination from personal experience) and wow! We couldn't have been more pleased. He was eager to assist me, not knowing whether I was serious about booking or not. I changed my mind 3 different times, Larry didn't care he kept looking! I didn't have to wait days to hear a response. He was AMAZING! So amazing, I reffered him to my mom and she just booked my sisters NYC trip with him! I will forever more use Larry and recommend him to everyone!

Seabourn New England Cruise

My husband and I booked a cruise to New England and on to Canada with Larry Abramson. He's done above and beyond to help us. My husband has been ill and I've never done traveling this caliber. We needed all the help we were able to get. Larry started with the private car to pick us up from the airport in Boston to the hotel and from the hotel to the embark the ship. Once we board the ship, a scooter will be dropped off for my husband's convenience. Larry heard my concerns and didn't take them lightly. He was ahead of the game. He was always clear with what he planned on doing or what he suggested I should do. His integrity is one among a few things I admire and was impressed the most. We plan on taking another cruise next year. We had an awesome experience dealing with him. His way of doing business is above par. We are coming back to Larry again. Thanks Larry. Kudos to you.
