Shannon is the best!!

Reviewed By db - Jackson | Traveled to Europe
So excited to take our Norwegian Cruise this year. We loved working with Shannon to book our trip. Shannon listened to our needs and made several suggestions. We were able to select the best option and price point for us. I love Elite Travel and I have been scheduling my travels for years, however, I have to say Shannon went above and beyond to meet my vacation needs.

Wonderful Alaska Cruise

Reviewed By Barry Maxwell - Paducah, KY | Traveled to Alaska ~ USA
We just returned from a once in a lifetime vacation, an Alaskan Cruise on the Royal Caribbean Ovation of the Seas! It was an awesome trip made possible because of the work of Shannon Thompson of Elite Travel in Cape Gireardeau. Shannon recommend this cruise and helped us plan every detail . Nothing was left unexpected. From the flight to the cruise to the excursions, Shannon took care of it all. Her recommendations were priceless! She walked us through each step of the way. Her final walk through answered all our questions. She was great! I would not only use her again , but I would recommend her to anyone looking to travel. I am so glad we didn’t try to plan this alone ! Thank you Shannon for helping us have a once in a lifetime trip to Alaska!

Cruise Number 17

Reviewed By Docksider21 - Midstate, Missouri | Traveled to Yucatan ~ Mexico
Shannon was great on this cruise. This one happened by accident. With the cruise stoppage due to Covid, I had a lot of cruise credits built up that had to be used. I had used a Carnival credit to book in September of this year. Suddenly I had a RCCL credit that had to be used as well. I found an RCCL cruise in September that was a perfect fit, but it meant cancelling Carnival.
An attractive offer appeared for this April. Shannon booked my RCCL for September, moved the Carnival booking from September to April (change of date, port, and ship, but she was able to avoid all penalties). At the same time she was juggling credits for me for three other cruises. Even though this is cruise 17 she did a telephone walk through with me before my sail date. It was helpful as things have changed. I booked my own hotel & flights, Shannon was cool with that. Whether you book the full package or just some items with them, Elite and Shannon still give full service.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Shannon Thompson responded:
Thank you so much! You're so kind to take the time to share your experience. Cruise 18 coming up soon!
