A loyal guest shares how her advisor has enhanced her travel experience

There is something to be said for the professional expertise and service offered by a travel advisor when booking your AmaWaterways river cruise. Loyal guest Colleen B. shared the testimonial below about her wonderful travel advisor, Shawn P.

How has your travel advisor provided you with amazing service?

The amount of time Shawn has saved us in travel planning in significant; and I know by booking through him, I will always get the best deal and best available stateroom. In fact, I can honestly say all the cruises Shawn has booked for me and my husband have exceeded our already high expectations.

What kind of expertise has Shawn offered?

I have confidence he knows this industry inside and out from own personal experience on more than 70 cruises. Actually, this question could be: “What doesn’t he know about cruise line travel?”

What’s the best part about having Shawn as your travel advisor?

I don’t have to spend by time and money experimenting or learning the hard way by going on cruises I won’t be happy with because I can rely on him to guide me to exactly what will make me and my husband blissfully happy!

Your Trusted Source

In addition to what Colleen has shared about working with Shawn, your travel advisor can offer you the luxury of time as they make all your future travel plans in one convenient step. They can bundle your flights (which include AmaWaterways transfers between airport and ship), optional pre- and post-cruise land packages and extra hotel nights before or after your sailing, as well as add a Cruise Protection Plan or Travel Waiver Plus to your reservation. By using a travel advisor, you avoid spending the extra time calling and researching multiple providers as they can take care of it all with a single reservation.

AmaInsider Tip:

Many of the most experienced travel advisors share their Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) certifications in their titles. If you do not already have a trusted travel advisor you work with, look for advisors with a CCC, ACC, MCC, ECC or TAE listed after their name.
