  Meet YOUR Vacation Specialist, Client Testimonials, BLOG  

In the fall of 1983, my husband and I won a free Windjammer  Barefoot Bahamas Cruise.  We had a great time that week.   This was the start of our love affair with cruising.  

A few years passed before we went on another cruise aboard a 37,000 ton ship.  Since then we've been on 13 cruise lines and over 50 cruises.

For us, cruising meant that our meals, entertainment, and room were already planned.  We only had to unpack once, not in each city.  We got to explore new destinations. Best of all, our cost was fixed.   Now, we were definitely hooked.  

We’ve created reviews, complete with pictures, for all of our recent cruises.   I’d love to share some of my cruise stories with you and help plan your trip.   My customers get the benefit of all our personal experiences in addition to the resources of Cruises Inc.

With over 30 years in the travel industry, I have become addicted to travel and cruising.  There is no other vacation like a cruise.  I still fondly remember our first cruise as if it happened yesterday.  It is the best way to see the world especially destinations like Europe.

I am constantly expanding my cruise line and destination knowledge by participating in travel seminars, conferences, classes, and of course by taking several cruises each year.  Most recently, I attended CLIA's Cruise3Sixty Conference in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. where I recertifed as a Master Cruise Counselor.

I was awarded the 2007 Business Person of the Year by the Streamwood Chamber of Commerce where I'm Past President and Member of the Board of  Directors, and active member of several committees.

As your local independent Cruises Inc. vacation specialist, it is my pleasure to assist you in finding the cruise, resort, or tour vacation of your dreams!

What do our clients say?

Christine was great!  She was always available for questions and any advice she gave us, was right on the money!  Her "Bon Voyage" give in our stateroom was a very thoughtful touch!

Chris was extremely helpful.  She made our 1st time cruise hasselfree and she was more than happy to answer any and all questions.

Jeanette Wendt, WI

Christine is an excellent agent. Extremely prompt with replys to e-mail correspondence and telephone messages. She answered every question (despite how foolish) throughly, exhibiting a great deal of knowledge of both the ship and the ports of call. We will definitely use both her and your agency again.
