Master Cruise Counselor Specializing in Groups

I have been in business since 2001 achieving many milestones, both academically and professionally.  I have trained many hours and sailed many cruises (70+ on 8 different cruise lines) to earn the distinction of Master Cruise Counselor as well as the designation Caribbean Specialist and Wedding/Honeymoon Specialist.

Over the years I have helped plan the perfect cruise vacation for individuals and groups to amazing destinations such as the Caribbean, Bermuda, Alaska, Hawaii, South America, Asia, Europe and the rivers of Europe.

Over time, I have developed a passion and skill for organizing and orchestrating group cruises (both large and small). A group cruise is the perfect venue for any and all types of groups from bachelor/bachelorette parties, weddings, family reunions, class reunions, military reunions, corporate events, etc.  Nothing provides more satisfaction than seeing the happy faces of a Family Reunion or a Wedding Party.

If  you have a larger group in mind (class reunions, military reunions, fund raisers, etc.) I provide the ability for the group’s leaders to ENJOY their vacation, rather then stressing about planning it.  All of this while saving the group money on a FANTASTIC adventure, since cruising is truly the vacation that provides the “biggest bang for your buck”.

While planning group cruises is my niche, I would still love to help you make your cruise vacation dream become your dream vacation.  You never know, some day you may want to do your own group cruise.

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!
