Neil Lazinsky, Franchise Owner since 2007, Wheatley Heights, NY

“Although we have extensive business backgrounds, my wife I bought our CruiseOne franchise with no travel business experience in 2008. The decision to buy a CruiseOne franchise came after careful consideration of other franchise opportunities both in and out of the travel industry. We read every bit of material sent to us from CruiseOne. We contacted about a dozen current franchisees and even called people who were no longer franchisees. We were very encouraged by the fact that everyone told the same story, “It’s a great organization

“I enjoy being a CruiseOne Franchisee because it has allowed me to be able to turn my adoration for travel and cruising into a profession. Plus, I was able to exit the hustle and bustle of the 8-to-5 corporate financial services world. In addition, I have introduced my extended family, friends and acquaintances to the hassle-free experience of cruising. And, through my contacts, I have been able to provide a less-dangerous option for high school & college spring break vacations. I love what I do, and can’t

Fred McBride, Franchise Owner since 2008, Huntsville, AL

“The staff at CruiseOne headquarters knows the meaning of ‘service.’ Whenever I have called to seek assistance with my business, they have been professional and gone the extra mile to help me find a solution. As a franchisee in a middle-sized southern city, I appreciate the work that goes into establishing and maintaining good working relationships with our cruise-line partners. These relationships would be impossible for me to work out on my own; so I owe CruiseOne a big ‘Thank You’ for all you have done!”

Ralph Barker, Franchise Owner since 1994, Ellijay, GA

“I started with CruiseOne in 1994 when there were only about four employees. I am totally dedicated to my business and would not have survived had it not been for the tremendous, consistent support of the CruiseOne corporate staff. They have never failed to get me the answers I need at any given time or to navigate me through some technical issues that may be a little over my head. If I had it to do all over, I would not hesitate to choose CruiseOne again. This
