Laura De La Horra
“I used to work in finance and accounting for a large, global company, but 80-hour work weeks and constant restructurings left me looking for an exit strategy. Cruise Planners let me take back ownership of my life. I love that I can run a successful business and still have time to do the thing I love most- travel!”
“I look in the mirror sometimes, and I can’t believe this is my life. I have been to so many places, and I get to do all these great things with wonderful people, and I have the support of Cruise Planners that has changed my life both personally and financially.”
Deborah and Isaiah Banks
“As a military family, we have traveled the world and we have the dedication and discipline to get things done. Cruise Planners was a natural fit. The flexibility to work from anywhere has been vital, and we have had so much fun growing our business together.”
"My son is on the spectrum of autism. Cruise Planners gives me the tools and flexibility to be there for him while also growing a successful business. Because of Cruise Planners, both my son and my business are thriving."
“I was with another travel company, but I reached a point in my business where I just couldn’t keep up with everything. Cruise Planners’ proven systems, word-class marketing and revolutionary technology helped me take my sales to a level I never thought possible. I am far more successful with Cruise Planners than I could have ever been with my previous host.”
“When I was getting ready to retire, I had no idea what I was going to do next. I started Cruise Planners part time, but I loved it so much and was doing so well that I made it my fulltime job and even recruited my daughter to help me. I love that I get to travel and run a successful business with my daughter.”
