Welcome to Cruise Cove
Cruise Cove LLC is an independent travel agency that specializes in cruises. I strive to provide a stress free no pressure experience for customers. Planning a vacation should be a fun experience followed by excited anticipation leading up to the vacation. My goal is to match customers with the best experience for their situation at the best price.
My services cost you nothing, the cruise lines pay my commission. If you are booking directly with the cruise line you are paying for my services but not receiving them.

Around the Internet
I joined the U.S. Navy after high school and spent a few years on the USS Key West, a fast attack nuclear submarine. I found being on a cruise ship was much more fun! I decided to share my passion for cruising with others.
After 6 years in the Navy I worked for a few government contractors. I got certified in Microsoft networking and started teaching technology classes at a high school. I am now in my 20th year of teaching focusing on finance and business classes. I do my travel business in the evenings.
