Jeanie Special Needs Cruise Travel Specialist

I co-founded Snail's Pace Special Travel Services  in 1997 with one simple goal in mind -- to make the joys of cruise travel easily accessible to travelers with special needs.   For over 30 years I always traveled with a friend who had chronic progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) that left her wheelchair- bound for all of our travels. We discovered cruise travel was the best way for us to see  the world. I experienced first-hand the benefits of cruising and learned the importance of having a travel planner who understands the client's special needs.
In 1997, my friend and I worked together to form a travel niche to provide cruise services for people who had special needs. I am in charge of this specialty division of Cruise Holidays of Kansas City: Snail's Pace Special Travel Services.
If you have special needs, I am your best choice because of three simple reasons:
(1)I know what it takes to plan a wonderful cruise for someone with special needs because i have had the first-hand experience of planning and traveling with someone who had significant mobility challenges.  I learned it can be disastrous if the planning isn't done properly.
(2) I understand that it takes more work to plan a trip for the special needs traveler and I am willing to do that extra work for you at no additional cost. When you're thousands of miles from home, you need the security of a travel specialist who plans ahead...and then verifies the arrangements! I have done group cruises for oxygen dependent folks; family reunion cruises for slow walkers; and individual cruises for families who have members with significant medical issues. (3) My passion is providing accessible cruise opportunities for those who need the thoughtful, knowledgeable planning I can provide.  Through experience, I know that cruising provides the best travel value for the dollar along with being fun, exciting, and accessible! I understand how important it is to you to get to see the world and have fun in a safe, accessible environment! Let me open new doors for you. Snail’s Pace Special Travel Services is looking forward to the chance to plan your dream vacation. Remember, with me, you're getting personalized attention from someone who has the experience it takes to plan your cruise right! 
You've waited long enough! It's time to turn your cruise dreams into reality! Call today at 877-696-7477 or direct at 816-645-4124 to speak with me and get started today.

Jeanie's help with our first Princess cruise, made us book another one.

Reviewed By Leah & Bob - Norwood, MA | Traveled to
My wife and I registered for our first Princess Cruise with Jeanie last January. She was recommended by our friends who have used her services in the past. From the start of the booking process, until the "Welcome Home" email, we couldn't say enough about the professional response that we received from all of our requests over the past year. We were so thrilled with the cruise, that we put down our deposits for an upcoming adventure sometime in the next 14 months. Thanks again Jeanie, you are the BEST!!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
