OMG LOL I'm a blogger


This is my brand spankin' new blog for my clients, friends and interested parties and I hope to
entertain and educate and will welcome comments and questions. I'll try to post interesting
travel related items on a frequent basis and will post super deals as they become available.

I'll also be promoting any special group sailings that we have scheduled. Everyone is welcome
to join our merry band of travelers.

A little background information about me. I joke about the fact that I've been selling cruises
since Carnival only had one ship. I've cruise at least 100 times and have sampled a wide
variety of ships. My agency, Cruise Vacation Specialist, has been an active member of
CLIA (Cruise Lines Intl. Assoc.) for 13 years and I'm a ACC - that's an Accredited Cruise Counselor and also an Alaska Specialist. I have a couple of outside sales counselors Michelle and Monte, and we work with groups or individual travelers through all of the cruise lines.

We also do package tours (airfare, hotel, transfers or rental cars and other related items) through a number of tour operators but can't do regular airline tickets.

I'm the substitute editor of Clark Howards e Scape newsletter and I fill in when Clara needs a
day off. Back when Clark was with his former radio station I filled in for him on a regular basis
and then took over the Travel Show there when he moved to his current home at WSB. He really is the nicest man you could ever meet and truly is thrifty. I hate to use the word cheap and this goes back to many years ago when I had sales training and we were forbidden to use that word.

So this is just the beginning and I hope you check back often.


  1. We've known Beth for many years and have have used her to book all of our cruises to the Caribbean and Europe. We have been very pleased with her services and think that she is a blessing to the cruise industry and the cruising folks.

  2. Why do you list so any cruises NOW that are dated 2009 - last year????

  3. Dear Beth,
    I hope you will continue your blog and pass on information. We do not have an abundance of experienced travel agents in our community and will follow your column. I would like to hear some of your thoughts and knowledge about cruises and ships that are better for older handicap passengers. my mother has never taken a cruise and we would like to take her on her first, but would like to gather some information on things we should keep in mind when traveling with a wheelchair and walker and sensitive medications. We would appreciate your thoughts. Many thanks !!
