Mubeen Walimomin, Franchise Owner since 2014, Sugar Land, TX

Owning a CruiseOne travel franchise affords me the flexibility to set my own hours to revolve around my class schedule, and will give me real-world experience when I start pursuing my business degree next year at the University of Houston. I think being a younger owner will offer my clients a fresh perspective on vacations for a younger crowd and multi-generational groups. My parents are entrepreneurs and along with my business teacher, they encouraged me to pursue my dreams.  I didn’t think I was going to get

Trapper Martin, Franchise Owner since 2011, Rockville, MD

I first learned about CruiseOne from another CruiseOne Franchisee that I met on a ship. I picked her brain probably to the point of annoyance and once back stateside I started to research various franchises and CruiseOne by far had very positive owner reviews about support, systems, etc. I was and still am a district manager for restaurant chain. Prior to working in the corporate world I owned two restaurants. I am at the point now where I am busy enough to do this full time if

David Frost, Franchise Owner since 2014, Panama City, FL

“I decided to become a business owner while on Active Duty to both supplement my income and to grow my business so I can have a sustainable income in the event that I eventually separate from the Air Force.  I’ve always had the strong desire to own a business and experience the freedom that comes with that.  I finally found that freedom when I joined the CruiseOne family. The military has taught me a great deal of attention to detail and stress management which has been VERY

Grant Springer, Franchise Owner since 2013, Edgewater, MD

“The military has offered my wife and I extensive traveling experience to over 15 countries. These experiences offer a true perspective to our customers when planning their vacation. In the military we learn to be flexible and adapt to many different types of situations and that is important in the travel industry because it’s not your vacation to plan, it’s someone else’s. This is a very exciting industry, one that you must continue to educate yourself on. So it’s important to find a company that is supportive

Isaac Ingram, Franchise Owner since 2012, Olympia Fields, IL

“The thing I like about CruiseOne is that the things I learned in my 29 years in the U.S. Navy works well in this company. Like planning your work and working off your plan. And the most important thing that makes the military successful is that sense of family. At CruiseOne, you’re never alone, there is always someone to call or help you out, just like the Navy. I truly feel that we are all in this together and there is great support from the headquarters and

Rhonda Day, Franchise Owner since 2013, Louisville, KY

I love being part of the CruiseOne family and I would absolutely buy the franchise all over again! I am coming up on a two-year anniversary and it has been a wonderful experience. There are, of course, challenges as there would be with any business, but that’s to be expected. The thing about the challenges is that with CruiseOne you know there are people that “have your back” and support you in the good and bad times. Every experience I have had working with the staff at

Cory Hardy, Franchise Owner since 2014, Columbia, SC

“The U.S. Air Force provided my family and me a sense of camaraderie. No matter where I was around the world, I had a supportive group of men and women that became my family. This is what makes the military great and this is what makes CruiseOne great. When my wife and I were deciding to join CruiseOne, the selling point was the support that we would receive; and after my initial phone call with a Franchise Development Specialist, I was sold and that sense of camaraderie

Margaret Miner, Franchise Owner since 2013, Pleasant Hill, CA

Would I purchase my CruiseOne franchise all over again?  Hands down, absolutely! No question about it.  There are so many resources available at HQ to help me when I need it.  Support Services is absolutely amazing, and they have gone above and beyond for my so many times!  The Marketing department has given me their creative guidance and have been generous in sharing just what has worked for other franchisees.  My Business Development Representative (Adam Taylor) has been my sounding board when I needed it most.  PR

Darci Upham, Franchise Owner since 2006, Hampstead, NC

People tell me almost daily that they’re so jealous of me.  Why?  Because I have the coolest job on the planet!  What could be more exciting than traveling to fabulous places? I spend every day helping people plan trips to amazing places all over the world. Friends and strangers have told me that I light up when I talk about my business.  This is my tenth year in business, and I still love going to work every day. I did a lot of research before choosing CruiseOne.

Valerie Harris, Franchise Owner since 2010, Atlanta, GA

“I spent a decade working for an airline. After 9/11, I accepted a severance package and founded a PR firm. Over the past few years, I’ve been yearning to get back into the travel business. When my husband and I recently took a cruise, I was hooked! I researched extensively for a business model that would let me continue running my PR firm while rediscovering my passion for travel. CruiseOne consistently surfaced as the top choice. Today, I am a CruiseOne Franchise Owner having the time of
