Some notes from our clients!

What an AWESOME job by Adventure Cruise Travel and representative, JoAnn. 

 

When we decided on taking our band to perform on a cruise ship, we just knew it was going to be an overwhelming task in planning. Needless to say, JoAnn made our trip planning sooooo easy, from the beginning stages to the very end. She was very helpful and patient from cabin list changes to adding cabins, just to name a few issues. 

 

In addition to, there were a lot of pre-planning task that we anticipated but there were also task that JoAnn covered that we did not anticipate that really helped. Adventure Cruise Travel also created a payment plan that helped us out tremendously so that our students and parents could afford to experience a cruise. Adventure Cruise Travel also included a representative while on the cruise to help with any necessities. 

 

I have been a band director for 18 years and have traveled with my bands every year. I would recommend this company to any group who want to plan a group cruise. 

 

There is no doubt that this was the GRANDEST BAND TRIP I have ever experienced. My hats off to Adventure Cruise Travel and especially to JoAnn. 

 

We will definitely trust our next cruise plans with this outstanding company. 

James Crumb, Jr. and Minor High School Band, Alabama
Dependable, genuinly friendly service and a personal interest in making our cruise the best is what we have found with JoAnn and Adventure Cruise Travel. Being a private, Christian High School, we sometimes have needs outside the norm, but we have found JoAnn will do whatever she can to make sure we are well taken care of. Before working with Adventure Cruise Travel, we were bounced around from one agent to another. There was no continuity from one year to the next. Now we know we have someone we can count on, who knows our needs, and will be there to work with us year after year. That makes a real difference to a trip coordinator. Thanks, JoAnn, for all you have done and will continue to do for us.
Mark and the Senior Class from FLA, Apopka, FL
Thank you so much for all your help with planning and booking our Senior Class Cruise to the Bahamas. Every aspect of the trip was a joy and the whole class including chaperones, were pleased. I especially want to thank you for your patience in the early days of planning the trip. I know we made changes including ports of call, destinations, travel to the port of call and number of attendees. Your help and patience during this chaotic time was priceless. Thank you also for being so prompt in returning my calls and emails. All of your attention to detail produced a smooth trip for the class. Thank you for everything!
Jaky and the Senior Class from SA, Greensboro, AL

Adventure Cruise Travel’s organization of all the paperwork that needs to be done for a cruise was excellent. With all the different forms that need to be completed, it was very handy to have your checklists and guide book. That answered a lot of questions from students and parents and helped us be prepared for the trip.

 

The escort you provided helped a lot behind the scenes with the Carnival staff. I never had to worry about Customs because he worked directly with them and made sure our instruments and equipment got on and off the ship. I could stay with the kids and make sure they were taken care of. That was a big help! (In the past, with a different travel agent, I ended up doing absolutely everything because their escort had no idea that bands have LOTS of equipment, unlike choirs).

 

When we cruise again, it will definitely be with Adventure Cruise Travel. Thanks for making this happen!

Finding a dependable, trustworthy travel agency that is willing to work with you to select the best cruise can be a challenge. We're very happy  to have found JoAnn at Adventure Cruise Travel. She has assisted me with high school senior group cruises for more than 10 years. Recently, I have used Adventure Cruise Travel as my personal agency also. All of my experiences have been AWESOME!

 

JoAnn's expertise is evident from the moment she answers the phone. She is friendly, receptive to my needs, and quick to find me a great deal. Adventure Cruise Travel is knowledgeable and personable. I have always received exceptional customer service.

 

Thank you Adventure Cruise Travel for your professionalism and expertise!

JoAnn,

Thank you...for filling a niche for an affordable high school senior cruise. Your agency, Adventure Cruise Travel, was just what I was looking for; a great framework with highly qualified travel agents which can customize and create a tailored cruise package that fits my school's individual needs. I have looked for some time trying to find a good travel agency like this one for all of our travel needs and haven't had much success. Your efficiency and professionalism will not be forgotten. Thanks for filling this niche!

Mr. Stanley and the Senior Class from THA , Ridgeland, SC

I recently took my high school band on a 4-day cruise to perform aboard the Carnival Inspiration.

 

I looked at a number of companies who specialize in group travel, and chose Adventure Cruise Tours (ACT) because they focus on cruises for groups. JoAnn Stout did an amazing job of helping me navigate the many different logistical issues that came up during the process of setting this trip up, and was incredibly knowledgeable in regard to policies and procedures related to cruise lines.

 

JoAnn’s attention to detail made the boarding process very smooth, and everything we needed on the trip was handled by Tyler, the representative who sailed with us.

 

If you are a musical director looking for something different to do with your students, I highly recommend a performance cruise. It was one of the easiest trips I have ever done with a band, and Adventure Cruise Travel (ACT) made it a truly an enjoyable experience.

 

We will definitely do it again. Thanks again to JoAnn and Tyler!

Dale Sanders and Beaumont High School Band, California

Professionalism, prompt and hassle-free service makes Adventure Cruise Travel the obvious choice for our school's travel needs. I maintain a hectic schedule, and JoAnn is always accessible to me when I call. Even last minute changes have been handled with the utmost priority. I highly recommend ACT and JoAnn for any school or agency planning group travel.

Lisa and the Senior Class from SMA, New Orleans, LA

I absolutely could not have asked for a better experience that what was provided to us by Ms. JoAnn with Adventure Cruise Travel. 

 

She was very thorough with every detail from the beginning until the end of our cruise. She did not leave out any detail which made our arrival and departure at the port a breeze. 

 

The price was very reasonable and the cruise and accommodations were fantastic. We were traveling with a group of 52 high school seniors and she provided them with a great experience that they will always remember. 

 

I would recommend Ms. JoAnn with Adventure Cruise Travel to anyone planning to book a cruise in the future. You can not go wrong with them. 

Ms. T. Boatright & the Senior Class from BCHS 2015!,
Thanks to Adventure Cruise Travel & to our on-board host for making our 2015 Senior Cruise Trip the best ever. I was worried about getting all our people checked in and managed on the boat. We will definitely use this travel company again. Thanks again.

I have worked with JoAnn for several years taking students on their senior cruise. She is extremely helpful and makes sure you understand everything. She goes out of her way for all of our travel needs and information. As long as I am doing any kind of group traveling, I will use JoAnn.

 

I always feel like she plans our trip as if she herself were going! Thanks so much JoAnn!
