Caribbean Cruise Specialist

Over the past 20+ years, I have logged over 70 cruises to the Bahamas and the islands of the Caribbean.  Are you looking to lounge on one of Antigua’s 365 beaches?  How about swimming with the Stingrays in Grand Cayman.  Is climbing the waterfalls at Dunn’s River in Jamaica more your speed?

Panama Cruise
Beverly is a fantastic travel agent. She did a wonderful job organizing our large group 10-day Panama Canal cruise, including many interesting tours. She did the best job possible to get us the most amenities. We all had a great experience. Many thanks go to Beverly!

Excellent communication
Beverly worked diligently with our group from Minnesota for several months to help set-up a cruise of the Panama Canal. She was ready with immediate responses to all of our questions starting with choosing the cruise line, keeping us up-to-date on the chosen cruise’s specials and discounts that became available during the months preceding our cruise, hotel stay before the cruise, transfers from the hotel to the ship, organizing Tours by Locals in the ports, and accompanying us on the tour. My husband and I can’t say enough about Beverly’s excellent communication skills and professional knowledge. We give Beverly nothing less than 5 Stars for her hard work. There was not a single glitch during our 10 day cruise. Feel confident to choose Beverly for your travel planning.

First Cruise
Beverly is so great to work with. If you want a worry free vacation she is your go to person! We had a great 10 day cruise to Panama despite the Corona virus pandemic. She arranged our tours to Aruba, Curcao and Costa Rica. Panama would not let us leave our ship. I would highly recommend Cruising Smart!!

Long relationship
My family and I have been cruising with Beverly for over 15 years! Anything we need done, she knows how to do it, from the best itineraries, best cabins on almost every different ship. She gives great advice on packing, boarding, dining, disembarcation. Beverly is knowledgeable, fun, well-cruised herself, so she speaks with experience when she makes recommendations. I strongly recommend Beverly to all my friends, and we cruise together. So if you are thinking of a cruise once everything opens up, Beverly will make it fun and safe!

Wonderful Adventures
We've done 3 cruises with Beverly, and she organized our land trip to Belize. She is an excellent travel agent. She's thorough, competent, and has a great personality. She seems to have connections all over the world, so she can get the best guides for land tours. She often goes on the cruises with her groups and is accessible if anything is needed before the trip and while onboard. I would highly recommend Beverly to anyone planning a trip, whether a cruise or land adventure.
