Alaska and Cruise Trip Planning: 18 Years

Whether it is technology, the ships, the itinerary, or the experience, I know the nuts and bolts of the travel industry and I love putting that to work for my clients benefit. 

I have worked with CTC Travel for 17 years and loved every moment of it, because I enjoy working with customers all day long, rather than being behind the scenes as I was in accounting.

My love of Alaska and cruising started when my husband and I did a roundtrip cruise from Vancouver in 2001. I thought the entire cruise was fascinating and the excursions were once-in-a-lifetime:

  • taking a floatplane to the base of a glacier.
  • captivating land tour via railway
  • river rafting
  • a husky homestead tour to the training camp of an Iditarod champion

Not only do I enjoy planning your wonderful Alaskan vacations, but I also escort groups providing immediate support and fun throughout the entire trip.

I once had a client tell me about a disagreement they had with a neighbor over the best travel agent. It turns out they were both right because they were both my clients!

I love the quote “Everything is relative” since not everyone has the same budget.  My goal is to maximize your experience within your means.

Whether you’re travelling with a special someone or family, I’ll help you determine what best fits your needs.

Thank you so much for all your help!  You always take such good care of us!  I thought you might want something to brighten your office as you brighten our vacations.  Thank!  S & B H

Sandra's knowledge and suggestions made the trip a great success!

Reviewed By Mrs. Mills - Dallas, TX | Traveled to
My husband and I decided to take an Alaskan Cruise. He had cruised many times before on other cruise lines, but this was my first cruise ever. Sandra was terrific! She listened to our likes, dislikes and preferences and came up with a great cruise on Celebrity Cruise Lines on the Celebrity Solstice. I could go on and on about details that were amazing and made the trip terrific, but I think I can sum it all up in summary. The combination of her recommendations and our final decisions made this trip a beautiful memory that I truly believe we will have a difficult time exceeding. We will certainly cruise Celebrity Cruise Lines again and we will certainly book our cruise through Sandra at Cruise & Tour Center.

Great Help on Alaskan Cruise!!!

Reviewed By Paula - Garland, TX | Traveled to
From choosing the right cruise for my husband and myself, to booking the cruise, to answering last minute questions, Ruth was FANTASTIC. I appreciated how Ruth listened to what I wanted in a cruise and offered suggestions and helped me know what I didn't know about Alaskan cruising. She was willing to go the extra mile to change some preferences and was available to answer last minute questions. I would most definitely trust Ruth to book any vacation and would highly recommend her.

Reviewed By Jo - Dallas, TX | Traveled to
We have used Ruth for all four of our cruises. She is available for us to meet with her, patiently answers of all our many questions, and is knowledgable about the cruiselines and the ports-of-call. She finds the best rooms available on the ship for us and our cruise mates. I have recommended her to several friends and will continue to do so.
