About Me!

My photo
Welcome! I am Jane-Ellen (JE) I'm a travel agent and I am happy to share with you my love of travel. I am not a journalist, I simply enjoy traveling. My favorite travel destinations are Walt Disney World, Cruises and anywhere on our Harley. My husband, Steve and I are out on our Harley when time, work and weather permit. We try to take weekend trips whenever possible.
Walt Disney World has been a favorite spot to vacation since our first trip in 1983. We have had over 30 weeklong vacations and now living in Florida we visit monthly, although recently I find myself there weekly. Hey I am doing research!
Cruising is another passion. We have been on many cruises, predominately in the Caribbean. A seven day cruise is the best way to really unwind and relax; but if a three or four day cruise crosses our path, we set sail. I am an Accredited Cruise Councilor, and a Certified Travel Councilor. I have the highest level of education from all major cruise lines.
Many clients have asked for insider tips for Disney World and cruising. That is my goal to offer insider information on Disney, Cruises and biking.

How to Get Cruise Discounts and Deals

Cruise Discounts and Deals

Looking to cruise and looking for a good deal? If you plan in advance you can save some money and have the vacation of your dreams!

Each cruise line has its own weekly specials that can save you money, they also offer discounts for police, fire, military, seniors and residents of certain states.

If you plan in advance you can find some great cruise deals. As with any special price, the price is lower for a reason, because historically not as many people cruise the Caribbean in early January or September, October and November. Alaska cruising during shoulder season will save you money. Shoulder season is between the off season and peak season. For Alaskan cruising it is May, early June and September.  The weather may be a bit colder but you aren’t going to Alaska to swim! Explore a month early or later and save some serious cash!

We recently took advantage of the Police and Firefighter discount on our January Monarch of the Seas cruise. It saved us a considerable amount.  Somr military discounts don't require that you are currently active duty, they simply ask for a copy of your DD214 to show that you served your country. Resident and Senior rates are available year round. Let your travel agent know what state everyone in your cabin is from, there may be a discount.

The cruise lines will require proof that you are indeed eligible for the discount. The Military discount will require proof of military service such as a DD214, Honorable Discharge form.

Make sure to let us know what discounts you may qualify for! Don’t miss out on great savings!
