Alaskan cruise and inland tour.

Reviewed By Ella - Nashville,Tn. | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
Charlie has always worked to get me the best price possible. When we took our first cruise in 1997 he asked so many questions to determine what best suited us, and oh boy was he right. And he has always been there to encourage us on along with what ever our travel decisions was.

Wonderful guidance

Reviewed By JohnO - Hemet, CA | Traveled to St. Petersburg ~ Russia ~ Russia & Northwest Asia
Charlie was a tremendous resource in planning our two-week cruise (not yet taken). As we were trying to add one-off elements to our multi-nation trip (e.g., a three-day private tour of St. Petersburg), we needed real, experienced advice. Charlie gave alternatives and the "pros and cons" for each. He was extremely helpful.

Want a great trip - Call Charlie

Reviewed By The Travelin' Pilkintons - Nolensville, Tennessee | Traveled to Mediterranean ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
If you are looking for a wonderful vacation, call Charlie Funk.
Since 1998, we have booked 16 cruises with Charlie’s help and have had a great time on each and every one. From the Panama Canal and the Caribbean to Alaska to Europe and Bermuda; he knows the ports, the ships, and the best way to enjoy them all. He offers great advice and suggestions of places to go and things to do. If there is ever any problem or concern, Charlie is always available and happy to assist.
We chose a family cruise for our 50th Wedding Anniversary. Charlie coordinated staterooms and dining arrangements for our family group. It was a wonderful way to celebrate.

From Hawaii, Across the USA, & Across Europe

Reviewed By Gary - Louisville, KY | Traveled to Europe
I have lost count by now, the exact number of years that I have worked with Charlie. Simply said, he is the best. No matter what the trip, what the location, or what the complications, Charlie always excels at getting the job done free of worries. The end result is always as good as or better than expected. When I think that Charlie has raised the bar to the top, I find out that on the next trip or booking he has exceed all previous expectations. I recommend Charlie without any hesitation whatsoever. He has demonstrated his expertise in handling my vacation planning and booking needs regardless of the type of trip to be taken or destination. The long and short of it is that Charlie is a walking and talking one stop travel professional that I can count on. He delivers!

My most enjoyable trip was the Panama Canal.

Reviewed By Ginny - Hermitage, Tennessee | Traveled to Panama Canal ~ Panama ~ Central America
I have worked with Charlie Funk of Just Cruising for almost twenty years. He has worked tirelessly several times to get just the perfect cruise for me as a single person and later as a wife of a handicapped husband. He was able to tell me if I would enjoy a a certain ship, a certain group because of my age. Did I want laid back or party time? He has made suggestions to help in our circumstances to bring the most enjoyment out of our cruises in the last few years. So, for partying, relaxing and read books and watch the waves or for helping me and my handicapped husband get the most our of a cruise, Charlie Funk is your man. He is over the top.

We have been a client now friend for over 20 years. All of his arrangements have been first class. Any extras that we needed was handled quickly and correctly. He always went out of his way to make sure our trip was seamless and trouble free. We never had to worry from start to finish; he always looked out for us. He has made plane reservations for other trips that we took that did not involve his company. Again his service was first class.
