About Cruise Buzz
Cruise Buzz is a website with resources to help you cruise better.
Cruising better is a choice to take control of your cruise vacation by cutting through the noise and getting to the good stuff. I started this site because in the early 2000s companies like Cruise Critic, Trip Advisor, and online travel agencies did not support the local efforts and voices of small independent travel agents. Since I was a small local community business owner, I got shut out of a lot of conversations taking place in emerging online communities. What could have been seen as a problem quickly turned into an opportunity to make my voice heard while I educated my clients about how to make awesome cruise vacations. Today I do not make money from selling cruising. Instead, I promote cruising and have become an influencer in the cruise travel niche. To learn more about me keep on reading.
I am on the quest to decipher fact from fiction.
If you are reading this bio about me it means that you and I probably share the same passion: a love for cruising and enjoying the many benefits of traveling at, on or by the sea.
I am the Chief Experience Ambassador at Cruise Buzz, which I started when I owned a cruise travel agency in 2006. While working in cruise sales, I earned the ranking of Accredited Cruise Counselor (ACC) from Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA), and I received certifications from Celebrity Cruises, Royal Caribbean International, Princess Cruises, Cunard Line, Disney Cruise Line, Norwegian Cruise Line, Holland America Line and Crystal Cruises. Attending these rigorous training programs gave me the ability to match people with a product, which has always been my goal.
Meet the Crew
I would be remiss not to mention Team Cruise Buzz crew members. These folks have joined me on many voyages and have helped provided valuable insight into the many nuances of the cruise experience.
If you keep up on the Cruise Buzz via social media then you know that Cruise Jess is an integral part of the team.
Cruise Sophia has a passion for the classics. She is most happy walking around the ruins of Greece and discovering local history.
Cruise Kid has been cruising since he was an infant. He can’t get enough of life on the high seas.
