We have so much to be thankful for in our choice to go with CruiseOne and in the support we have received from everyone at headquarters. We were honored to be interviewed by the media and to gain exposure for our franchise and for CruiseOne. Additionally, we are deeply grateful to Vicki Freed of Royal Caribbean, for her ongoing encouragement and support of us. We look forward to growing our business and becoming successful contributors to the CruiseOne family.
I spent a decade working for an airline. After 9/11, I accepted a severance package and founded a PR firm. Over the past few years, I’ve been yearning to get back into the travel business. When my husband and I recently took a cruise, I was hooked! I researched extensively for a business model that would let me continue running my PR firm while rediscovering my passion for travel. CruiseOne consistently surfaced as the top choice. Today, I am a CruiseOne Franchise Owner having the time of my life!
Owning a CruiseOne travel franchise affords me the flexibility to set my own hours to revolve around my class schedule, and will give me real-world experience when I start pursuing my business degree next year at the University of Houston. I think being a younger owner will offer my clients a fresh perspective on vacations for a younger crowd and multi-generational groups. My parents are entrepreneurs and along with my business teacher, they encouraged me to pursue my dreams. I didn’t think I was going to get this far, but when I began researching business ideas and came across CruiseOne, everything clicked into place. It fit my personal love for travel, and by budget.
