Land, Group and Cruise Destination Specialist

Jewel Dunn's Resort in Ocho Rios Jamaica
Jewel Dunn's Resort in Ocho Rios Jamaica

There’s no doubt that Gillian Chatman is a people person, and it just so happens that she loves to talk about travel. Why? Because travel makes her happy on a personal level, and she delights in helping others see the world in new and exciting ways.

Gillian’s specialty as a travel agent is in group destinations, facilitating both cruise and land bookings based on client needs. As a former wedding coordinator, Gillian naturally excels in destination weddings. She points out that her husband is a professional photographer, primarily for weddings, which furthers her natural proclivities toward group and special-occasion journeys.

As a mother to a blended family of seven children ranging from ages 11 to 31, Gillian thrives as an organizer and problem solver – which serves her well as a travel agent. No challenge is too big or small for this dynamo from Katy, Texas.

This agent’s varied life experience informs her travel perspective, having been born in Trinidad and Tobago and moving to the United States at the age of five to live in New York, Florida, Pittsburgh and, finally, Texas. Frequent travel to the Caribbean and South America hones her expertise in these destinations.

Gillian is affiliated with the Chatman Destinations agency and holds certifications with organizations such as the Cruise Line International Association (CLIA), Royal Caribbean, Palladium Hotel Group and Disney Resorts.

She explains in her own words what makes the travel industry a perfect fit for herself and for the many clients who repeatedly benefit from her knowledge and devotion.

“I listen very well,” says Gillian. “This is a key component to finding that right destination for my clients, especially when they are not certain where they would like to go … I can use my knowledge and skills and experience in finding the right vacation for them.”

Amazing experience! Customer for life!

Reviewed By Mr. Moore - Houston, Tx | Traveled to Puerto Rico ~ USA
Our experience with Ms. Chatman was excellent from start to finish! From the time I inquired to the time we landed after our trip, Ms. Chatman was extremely helpful and knowledgeable at every turn! I would say we weren't the ideal customers, being that we were a bit indecisive initially on what type of vacation we were interested in, but Ms. Chatman handled all of our concerns and personal hiccups with grace and professionalism. She helped us choose from an assortment of options that considered our taste, budget and personal accommodations. Own trip was wonderful and she was there to answer any questions or concerns that we had along the way. We've already begun referring her to friends and family and are planning to book again with her in the near future!

Gillian Chatman responded:
Thank you so much for your kind words and trusting Chatman Destinations to book your trip. You are a great client to work with. Your willingness and mannerism is so on point. We look forward to you booking with us again in the future.

Our Anniversary trip was a success!

My wife and I recently booked a vacation through Chatman Destinations and we couldn't have been more pleased. Communication and response time was very fast and thorough. Ms. Chatman found us a great deal and we were very happy and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a traveling service. We look forward to our next trip and we will be going through Chatman destinations.

She saved our vacation!

Chatman Destinations literally saved our vacation when we went on a cruise, I hadn’t printed the paperwork in time, the morning of our cruise she saved the day by already having all the stuff printed out. If it wasn’t for her and the wonderful customer service, we wouldn’t have been able to go! Already have our next vacation in June booked with her!

I love their service!

I love the service and realness. This isn't by someone who just reads about travel, she gets out here with the people. Very timely responses, and knowledge is 2nd to none.
