  Meet the Team  
 

We took our first cruise the summer of 1981 to celebrate our recent nuptials and explore the Caribbean. After all these years, we still fondly recall our first experiences strolling through the straw market in Nassau, enjoying a day at the beach snorkeling on a private island, shopping in Freeport and spending a delightful day seeing Cozumel. Little did we know then that some 30 years later, we would turn our love of travel into a new career opportunity.

We have visited many destinations and ports of call and have a curious passion for traveling to new and exciting places around the world. Whether visiting the magnificant opera house in Sydney, riding the gentle Connemara ponies in Ireland, swimming with the Manitees in the Caribbean, visiting the lush botanical gardens in Hawaii, climbing a glacier in Alaska, or experiencing the small towns along the rivers of Europe and Asia, we would LOVE to share our experience and knowledge while helping you plan your special celebration or dream vacation no matter what the destination or mode of travel.

Thank you for visiting our website and we look forward to hearing from you soon. Give us a call toll free at 877-566-0337.

My wife and I are extremely passionate about two things: Helping others and traveling. It is my goal to achieve these things by helping you bring your vision to life through the best vacation possible. We took our first cruise in 2012 for our honeymoon and fell in love with the cruise industry. We have also enjoyed adventures such as backpacking through the rugged mountains of Colorado, beach vacations, camping in the Smoky Mountains and traveling to SEC football stadiums. You deserve a great vacation and my passion is to help make it a reality.

Becky Thomas
Vacation Specialist

My first road trip was 1963. My Dad put a brown paper sack of money into the glove compartment of a 1958 Oldsmobile World Car and said, “when half of this is gone, we will turn around and come home”. We traveled to Yellowstone National Park, up the Space Needle in Seattle, saw a real cattle drive in Idaho, the giant Redwoods in California, and a Vincent Price movie set in Hollywood, where he bowed and kissed my Mother’s hand and patted me on the head. Since that first trip I have walked the Great Wall in China and viewed the sunrise over the Grand Canyon. I have traveled to all 50 states and 25 different countries. I have been leading group tours since 1994.

I love reading about history and culture. I believe that you should stand in a place to get a full understanding and awareness. I always wondered how George Armstrong Custer could be caught unaware by a Native American tribe until I walked the battlefield and climbed over a hill and saw the hidden valley beside the Little Big Horn River. Geography makes a difference. Being there helps you see that difference.

I have been many places but there are many more to see. Come with me and we will explore the world together.

Every family, every friend group has that one person that they rely on to make the plans. The one who plans the parties and the trips - that person is me. I've had so much fun over the years traveling with my family and friends and I'm excited to use that knowledge to help others plan their trips. 

I love to travel because the world is so full of interesting people, incredible scenery, amazing food and different cultures. Each trip is a new adventure to be had and a new memory to be made. Traveling broadens your mind in so many ways and makes your life richer. I'm looking forward to using my organizational abilities to benefit your family and can't wait to help you embark on your next adventure.

Two retirees with a passion for travel.  We took our first cruise in 1997 and were instantly addicted.  We have snorkeled at many different places, zip-lined over a rain forest, swum with turtles and dolphins, visited most of the islands in the Caribbean and have traveled through the Panama Canal.  We went whale watching in Hawaii and even walked to the rim of a Volcano. We have been to the top of the Space Needle in Seattle, seen the beautiful sites of Alaska and have seen the sunrise and sunset over the Grand Canyon. We have visited 43 of the 50 United States and visited many of the National Parks. 

We have visited many destinations and ports of call and have a passion for traveling to new and exciting places around the world. We would love to help you plan your next vacation.

What our clients are saying...

We planned our first wedding anniversary with Denise and she made it so incredibly easy. Taking care of every detail even surprising us with "insider information" to make our trip go smoothly. Even when our plane was delayed and the transfer company did not want to wait to take us the 60 min ride to our port, she worked her magic and we were on the transfer. We would highly recommend the best travel agent!!

We went on our honeymoon to Secrets Maroma Beach. We live in Florida and had many questions. Nancy was available anytime we needed her and did an excellent job helping to plan our honeymoon. She went above and beyond and I would highly recommend her and will be using her on my next vacation. And our honeymoon as this resort was amazing.

The amazing travel agents at Glenn & Associates-CruiseOne were so helpful in helping us plan the perfect family reunion. Our family had grown quite large and we didn't know where to start in planning a trip that everyone would enjoy. We worked with Denise, who helped us chose a cruiseline that fit our family's style and even arranged shore excursions that everyone enjoyed. We had a wonderful trip and fantastic experience working with our CruiseOne agent.

We had so much fun on our Alaskan cruise. Denise and Davis shared so many great tips that helped us to utilize our time in each port to it's fullest. The private whale watching excursion was the most incredible experience we've ever had. The cruise ship was just the right fit for our family. Can't wait to plan our next vacation with their Davis & Denise.

Our friend recommended we call Denise to plan our trip to Ireland. We didn't know where to start, but knew the things we had heard about and wanted to see. Denise put together the trip itinerary and handled all of the details for us. We wanted to rent a car and drive around Ireland and experience the local culture. Denise took care or our flights, rental car, mapped out our journey, booked us in incredible Bed & Breakfasts long our way, even scheduled our day trips. Our travel package included everything we would need for our trip including a day pack and nice map book to make our trip special.

Ellen with Dream Vacations was so helpful with planning our cruise – and it was like she was there guiding us. She had provided directions and information on many tours we were doing and helpful information regarding the cities with no tour. I saved her emails and we referred back to them along the way to remind us on directions and suggestions she had given us. It made for a great vacation.
