My work is my passion. As a vacation specialist with more than 25 years of experience, 26 personal cruises notched on my belt and over 52 countries stamped in my passport, I can make personal recommendations for every trip you might want to book. After traveling on every cruise line and visiting every port multiple times over, I’m not going to hesitate to recommend Celebrity Cruises, and specifically their AquaClass. AquaClass is hand’s down worth the higher price. Between the private Blu restaurant and opulent Persian Garden, AquaClass is easily one of my top traveling experiences. My clients all agree: Celebrity Cruises are a first-class experience!
Between growing up in a military family, having a husband in the military and being a travel agent for 15 years, I’ve always loved to travel. There’s just so much to see! As the #1 travel agent in Montgomery, that passion translates easily into helping my clients see the world for themselves. It’s more than just doing the best job I can: I tend to enjoy their travels through them! Without a doubt, the trips they, and therefore I, always thoroughly enjoy are Celebrity Cruises. Celebrity just has so much to offer. With their elegant atmosphere, personal touches to service and shore excursions led by locals, it’s easy to love every second.
My life motto is “life is too short for crappy vacations.” But, I do more than live it; I share it with the world through my business. The results speak for themselves: just about all of my business is either from word-of-mouth recommendations or repeat customers. Sure, I’d call myself a “travel matchmaker” and a “value interpreter,” and those are both critical to my success – but the ace up my sleeve is that I’m a proponent of Celebrity Cruises. Between their incredibly comfortable cabins, high-quality food and drink, and a level of service that makes everyone feel like a celebrity, it’s easy to adhere to my life motto. Celebrity Cruises constantly delivers vacations you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
From day one, I’ve always gone above and beyond to take the stress out of traveling, no matter the situation. Some thirty-plus years later, it’s fair to say it’s my forte. From start to finish, I take care of all the details, so you never have a moment’s worry. And I do mean all the details: from suggesting where to discover delectable dishes, all the way to shore excursions for any size group. You might even say groups are my specialty, but honestly, that’s not what really sets me apart. The reason I sell hundreds of cruises each year is because I treat each and every client like they’re my only one, and that makes the difference. That’s exactly why I never hesitate to recommend Celebrity Cruises. Between their wonderful food, entertainment and five-star service, I never have to worry when my clients book Celebrity. They make my job of going above and beyond easy.
Since before finishing high school, I’ve known that my passion in life was group travel. That was over 30 years ago; I’m still blessed to be doing it today. It’s not just being a travel agent that I find fulfilling—it’s a near-guilty pleasure of mine to travel. As a Distinctive Voyages host, I regularly accompany groups on vacations to ensure that their trip goes smoothly from start to finish (humble-brag: we take care of our clients). Between this, and when I plan my own vacations, I go on Celebrity. No matter how unique the destination (Adriatic, Antarctica, India, Australia and Alaska to name a few) Celebrity goes the extra mile in making certain the experience is divine. Their cruises are modern luxury, without seeming stuffy. They cover the world, and are on the pulse of popular destinations. They offer Flights by Celebrity, taking the final point of stress out of your vacation. Celebrity takes care of their clients, which makes travel especially fulfilling.
Travel is magic. Every new experience enriches your life tenfold, every sight and sound and scene proves to be a memory you treasure for years to come. It’s what makes my job so fulfilling at the core: I make wishes come true. My clients are wonderful, and it brings me immense joy to send them on the trips of their dreams. An easy way to work magic? Simply sail Celebrity. I sell about 20 Celebrity cabins a year, and a substantial amount of them are repeat clients—they don’t want to sail anything else after experiencing the fairy tale life that Celebrity offers. The ships are drop-dead gorgeous, the staff is phenomenal, the experience as a whole is nothing if not consistently wonderful.
I served five years in the United States Army and teamwork is embedded into my operation. And I don’t just mean between my associates and I: our team goes above and beyond to collaborate with you on the trip of your dreams. We answer emails outside of office hours, have appointments on evenings and weekends, and I’ve even personally escorted groups on cruises and land tours around the world. With our above-and-beyond approach and extensive industry experience, I can say the key to a perfectly-planned, hassle-free trip is often Celebrity Cruises. With their superb level of service, higher quality of food and lively onboard atmosphere, they consistently deliver experiences beyond what our customers have dreamed of.
I’ve been a Celebrity lover since sailing on the inaugural cruise of the Zenith back in 1992 — it blew my mind how beautiful it was. I’ve also been a travel agent for thirty years, and I always strive to provide that same level of awe-inspiring experience to my clients. Of course, it’s no surprise that Celebrity never disappoints in that endeavor. I sell hundreds of Celebrity cruises a year, and the feedback is universally positive: between how attentive the crew is, how innovative and beautiful the ships are, and the unique itineraries that now offer two days in port, there’s something for everyone to love.
The cruise industry is forever evolving and, like most other businesses, it requires a lot of training and education. I am a Certified Travel expert with many different cruise lines and that training is ongoing. I need to stay up with the latest information on ships, itineraries and rule changes so I have all the necessary tools and knowledge to help you make the right choices when planning your cruise vacation. I will always be accessible to guide you through every step of the way when planning. Should an issue arise, I'm your advocate between you and the cruise line. With my years of experience, I try foresee many issues before they happen and help resolve the ones that come up.
If you're new to cruising then you owe it to yourself to use an experienced, well seasoned Travel Agent. Give it a try. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
I’ve always had a penchant for world history: I majored in it in college, I seek it out in my own explorations, I find that it literally makes the world go ‘round. And, it pairs perfectly with my other passion—travel. Every city has something new to be discovered, just waiting to be cherished and enjoyed. And when it comes time to get there, I find Celebrity Cruises has a history of excellence. All my clients simply rave about their time on Celebrity, they say the service is “without compare.” I have some clients that will only ever sail Celebrity. Between the service, the phenomenal food and the world-class entertainment, I can see why. Celebrity is poised to go down in history as the pinnacle of Modern Luxury, which makes traveling around the world an absolute breeze.
With 45 years in the travel industry and over 50 cruise vacations of my own, you’d be pressed to find an agent with more insights and contacts than me. While some of my contacts are top-secret, most of the insights aren’t. The most obvious insight? I recognize everyone is different, and that’s why every trip has to be specially tailored to meet different expectations and budgets. The second most obvious insight? The value of Celebrity Cruises. Between their country-club atmosphere, the value of their packages and the surprise benefits my clients discover along the way, Celebrity is one of the best choices in the market today.
Overlooking the picturesque fjords of Glacier Bay from the deck of a Celebrity cruise, I knew I was falling in love. That was over twenty years ago. Today, thanks to that cruise, my now-wife Kelli and I run Tequesta Travel, a Florida-based travel agency known for our warm, personable service. Over the years, I have gained a loyal clientele who appreciate our above-and-beyond attitude and first-hand insights into Celebrity sailings. From itinerary advice to onboard restaurant recommendations, I am always happy to chat with anyone interested in Celebrity’s unforgettable destinations, outstanding service and fantastic dining options.
As a seasoned travel agent (I’ve been doing this since before computers!), I’ve amassed a fair amount of experience and accolades, if I do say so myself. But, one bit of knowledge I picked up early: Celebrity is easy to sell. The reasons behind this are obvious: their wonderful atmosphere and staff make for an otherworldly cruise experience, otherworldly cruise experiences make for seasoned travelers, seasoned travelers know a good trip when they’re on one and seek out trips that can match that standard. I’ve never once had a complaint from a customer about Celebrity and I sell about 500 Celebrity cabins a year. That’s a solid batting average on Celebrity’s part.
When it comes to being a travel agent, putting my best foot forward is as simple as putting myself in my client’s shoes. That’s where the steps get a little more complex; I want to exceed their expectations in every way, so I stress about their vacations more than my own! One thing I’ve noticed: I’ve always had glowing reviews after booking a client on a Celebrity cruise. Between their fantastic amenities, show-stopping entertainment and superior level of service, Celebrity is fun for everyone. My clients always say their cruises are top-notch and phenomenal experiences, which makes me say it’s a job well done on my part.
Being a travel agent is the only job I’ve ever had, and the reason for that is simple: it doesn’t ever feel like work. I love my job, I love helping my clients take the trips of their dreams, and I especially love Celebrity Cruises. I love everything about them—the Lawn Club, the nightly world-class entertainment, how adult-oriented all of their offerings feel. Personally, I’m sailing on Celebrity Edge this January, and I am simply ecstatic: it’s the trip of my dreams!
As an extensive traveler with 12 years of experience as an agent and Distinctive Voyages host, I’ve developed a good eye for what makes a great trip. Personally, it’s easy to see that Celebrity Cruises contains all the makings of a great trip: between the absolutely amazing food, the incredibly professional service and the stunning shows, there’s no doubt that Celebrity is clearly very well run. I don’t know the exact number of Celebrity Cruises that I sell, but I do know they’re the better portion of what I sell, and that’s because the easiest part of my job is getting my clients to see the benefits for themselves.
I fell in love with travel when I first moved from Connecticut to the Sunshine State over 25 years ago. In that time, I’ve accrued a wealth of memories and experiences, not to mention my treasure trove of experience in Florida trips. While I know all the ins and outs of Disney and the local sandy beaches, there’s something else that I know even better: Celebrity Cruises are a can’t-miss travel experience. I have some clients who only sail on Celebrity, and I sell anywhere from 150-200 Celebrity cruises a year; my clients really like Celebrity. They always come back with glowing reviews about the food, shows, variety of excursions and level of service onboard the elegant ships. Take it from an expert: few places in the world can match the magic of Celebrity.
“Our knowledge is priceless,” says Pat Theberge, and after an impressive 42 years in the travel industry, it’s quite possible that’s an understatement. Pat is passionate about helping clients arrange special and once-in-a-lifetime Celebrity cruises to bucket-list destinations. Whether it’s a two-week cruise through the Greek Isles, an expedition to the Galapagos, or an around-the-world sailing, Pat works closely with clients to ensure their Celebrity cruise is the ultimate luxury experience. His hands-on approach to client service means he’s never more than a phone call away and thanks to his discerning advice, the cruise vacations he plans always go above and beyond expectations.
For my entire life, I’ve been in love with seeing the world. So much so, that it led to my second love: helping others see it for themselves. With 20 years of diverse experience, it’s all been one never-ending highlight. I make sure every trip I book for my clients is as magical for them as my very first adventure was in France. I specialize in families looking for travel experiences as well as couples planning romantic getaways, and that means I tend to sell Celebrity Cruises. Besides having destinations that people really want to visit and food everyone ecstatically raves over, my clients are always impressed with the little touches of hospitality and service. Celebrity makes it easy for anyone to love seeing the world just as much as I do, which makes being their agent almost effortless.
There are a lot of things I pride myself on. Sure, I’m something of an Aussie specialist, but I know my insider knowledge of the Great Down Under isn’t what drives my clients to refer me to their friends and family. My biggest badge of honor? Delivering trips and experiences so mind-blowingly incredible, they border on priceless. But, and here’s where you might think it gets tricky, not breaking the bank to do so. My trick for delivering on both oftentimes is easy: Celebrity Cruises. Between their distinctive itineraries, incredible drink packages and exquisite dining options, nothing impresses my clients like Celebrity.
Travel makes for lifetime memories, which is why I always say “travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer.” I love helping my clients find experiences that enrich their lives. And as important as the destination is, I know the journey is also important. I always tell my clients they can’t go wrong with Celebrity: their fantastic ambiance, comfortable clean-cut design, specialty restaurants and stellar service make for a journey worth savoring, both in the moment and for years to come.
