Cruise Specialist, Branch Manager
I'm Judy, Manager of Burkhalter Travel's Sherman Avenue office. I have been employed in the travel industry in the Madison area since 1980. Having worked as a travel consultant, cruise specialist and as branch manager, my training and experiences have been many. I am a Certified Travel Counselor and an Elite Cruise Counselor Scholar - this is the highest level of cruise specialization and there are only 13 people in the United States with this designation! In addition, I am a Destination Specialist in Latin America, Western Europe and the Caribbean. I am certified as a River Cruise Specialist and a Cayman Islands Specialist. My cruise experiences have taken me to the Eastern, Western and Southern Caribbean, Alaska, the Mexican Riviera, Canada and New England, the Panama Canal, trans-Atlantic on the QE2, the Hawaiian Islands and steamboating on the Mississippi River. I have traveled to Europe - Great Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Norway, and Austria. I have also visited South Africa, Canada, Australia, the USA, and have traveled extensively in the Orient and Asia.
