travel agents’ testimonials

“For anyone wanting to join the industry, I would highly recommend joining Expedia Cruises. The training is phenomenal as is the support and mentorship from my Franchisee Owner and the other agents. The marketing is huge and the way the whole system works – it’s amazing. You don’t have to be a marketing expert – it’s all done for you. I only wish I joined sooner.”

Heather Lavender

Vacation Consultant

“I was a Real Estate agent prior to starting with Expedia Cruises. Alaska was our first cruise and since then we have been on four cruises, we are hooked. I have said many times since starting, that this is the first time in years that I have enjoyed going to work every day. I really look forward to going to the office each morning and talking to friends, as well as the public about cruising. When I hang up they are either booked on a cruise or deciding which one they want.”

Bob Blake

“What attracted me to Expedia Cruises was my love for travel and the unique opportunity to do something different. Right now I am working on a hosted cruise and it is extremely fulfilling to know that already forty-four people want to cruise with me.”
