Helping First Time Travelers and Cruise Bookings


While this may sound funny, but I specialize in "virgin" travelers -- clients who have never traveled outside of their own state. This group makes up about 75 percent of my clients. I really enjoy working with first-time travelers and showing them the joys of seeing and experiencing new destinations and cultures.

 

I do charge a plan to go fee of $25 and up.  While every client is important to me, it is imperative that I focus my resources and time on clients who are serious and ready to travel.


Because many of my clients are "virgins," I also work with them on their trip budget. My favorite quote is Eugene Fodor's "You don't have to be rich to travel well." And it is true.


Sometimes, it just takes some creative planning, careful budgeting and an understanding agent. That is why I like to sit down with my clients and discuss various ways they can save on their journey. For example, I may suggest that they travel during the off-peak season to save money. And I also offer a layaway plan for my clients.


Another way I help new clients is by traveling once a year with a group that I organize. Some people just feel more comfortable on an escorted cruise or tour. It eases their mind to know that they have someone knowledgeable with them if they should have any questions or problems.


In addition to working with new clients, I also specialize in booking:


• Group cruises
• All-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean.


I am also the go-to agent for many busy families who just don't have the time to plan out a complex itinerary or compare the various cruise or all-inclusive options out there. These clients realize that it makes more sense to leave their travel plans in my hands because I have the knowledge and training to book the right vacation for them.


And I do work hard to stay up to date and knowledgeable about everything that is going on in the travel industry. On average, I sail on approximately five cruises a year and also stay in at least one all-inclusive in either Mexico or the Caribbean. I have also owned my own agency for the last seven years and have earned certificates from the following:


• Carnival
• Royal Caribbean
• Princess
• Costa
• Riu
• Jamaica One Love Rewards


So if you are in need of an experienced agent who really cares and will be there for you from the beginning to the end of your trip, please contact me as soon as possible.

I looked forward to planning and going on my trip because of Ms. Toni

Reviewed By Missuecsw - Houston, Texas | Traveled to
I consider my self a seasoned cruiser. Ms.Toni made me so excited about the cruise and this was a repeat cruise that I took In 2013. She was the travel agent for that cruise but she encouraged my excitement as though this was my first time cruising to the Bahamas. I am a senior citizen with mobility issues and she was concerned about making sure that I would be comfortable. She is a wonderful and caring travel agent and I rate her 5+ stars.

I want Toni to plan all of my trips!!! This was my first experience working with a travel agent and I loved working with Toni. She took away all of the stress of planning a trip and all I had to worry about was paying my money and going on vacation:-) When we arrived on our ship she had a beautiful gift waiting for us and our room was just as we requested! She had all the answers to all of my questions and she gave great tips about the ship and things to do. I never understood the reason for a travel agent until I worked with Toni!

Cruising with a Big Family

Reviewed By Chaun - Houston | Traveled to
Toni Anderson is the absolutely best Cruise Agent I have ever worked with. She is knowledgeable about every boat leaving Galveston. I told her what we wanted and she gave the best advice I could have ever asked for. We wanted a small ship with good food with fun stops. The Freedom was the best cruise ship we have been on thus far. I don't know if it was because we were traveling with family or because the ship was so much fun with good food. Not only is Toni knowledgeable she was available to come to our family meetings to answer questions and concerns that our first time cruisers had. She never complained about my procrastinating family or the many phone calls she had to endure at all hours of the day!! I highly recommend her and we will be definitely be using her again for our 2018 Family Cruise.

She made my planning easy and fun

Reviewed By Carrie - Houston, TX | Traveled to
Mrs. Anderson was very helpful, responsive and knowledgeable. There was not a time that I called with questions that she was not available. If she was not at the moment, she definitely called back rather quickly. She also went out of her way to accommodate my group with perks, paid for out of her own pocket, that she did not have to. My group was very challenging and she held a special meeting to answer all the concerns that some of them have. Another notch for great Customer Service! While on the Cruise, she made special arrangement for me group and I appreciate that. Keeping me up to date and being available are things I very much appreciate. Mrs. Anderson always kept me up to date on my balance due when I made payments on my cruise with and up-to-date invoice. After care is also important to me. I, to this day, receive information about future trips, as well as tips about safe travelling. All of these things keep Cruises by Toni at the forefront of my mind when I consider cruising again. I have since used another agent on a trip after the one I went on in 2014, and found myself always comparing them to Cruises by Toni and Mrs. Anderson's services. As much as I have travelled in my lifetime, she has given me some of the best service! Only one other agent compared to them. For these reasons, I will and am using her service again for a future cruise, and I always recommend them to my family and friends. People I know that gave them challenges still want to use their services, because I know, like they did, Cruses' by Toni give quality service! Thank you!!!!!
