Destination, Hotel & Cruise Specialist Certifications
Travel is our passion; we love to talk about it, dream about it and we love to plan it.
But, how do we know where to send our clients? Where they should stay and what they should do? Well, that’s easy… we are constantly learning about destinations, hotels and cruise ships. We stay in or visit hundreds of hotels a year, cruise (sometimes as onboard hosts) the seas and rivers and take many of the tours we recommend so we will know what we’re talking about when we suggest them to you.
Of course, we can’t be everywhere in this big, wide world, so when we are here at home, we read, study and talk to our colleagues and friends in the business. We attend seminars and meetings with suppliers from all over the world to learn as much about their products as we can.
We spend hours and hours taking courses offered by the Travel Institute (the Ivy League of Travel Advisor education) and by hotel and cruise companies. And when we are through, we are certified by them, which means, we can speak with confidence and recommend the best options for our clients.
Here are some of our certifications. And, we are always adding more…
