Why Use Ultimate Cruise & Vacation

ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION is the ultimate choice for vacation, honeymoon or destination wedding planning. We're open 6-days a week, including evening hours because that's when vacation planners plan and make decisions. ULTIMATE CRUISE & VACATION offers an online booking option on our web site for the few hours we are not open. We even give you money back when you book an air and hotel package or cruise on our web site.

When you need personalized vacation planning from professional experts you'll receive our AWARD WINNING SERVICE at a time that's convenient for you, and at internet prices. OUR SERVICES NEVER COST YOU MORE - BUT WE SURE DO SAVE YOU MONEY AND HEARTACHE. We stay on top of our game by traveling to our most popular destinations regularly and repeatedly. We do our own site inspections at all the major resorts and file our Hotel Reviews along with our personal Pictures & Video's on this web site to benefit you. We visit and eat at resorts in the moderate to deluxe level to be prepared to match you up with your requirements. We travel with Tourism Boards to earn "Destination Specialist" status.

  • • Lowest Price - We comparison shop the best wholesale tour operators to find the best price for you!

  • • Make Payments - We normally only require a deposit at the time of booking, allowing you to make payments until the balance is due (usually 45 days before departure date). Internet sites require the full payment at the time of booking.

  • • Talk to a Human - The internet can't talk to or consult for you. Our highly experienced vacation planners can, and do just that. We are trained to listen to your dreams, and based on your budget we match you with the resort or cruise that will deliver your ultimate vacation.

  • • Real Reviews - Our reviews on this site are the result of our personal inspections, something we have done hundreds of times and know what to look for with our clients interest in mind. Reviews on public sites include competitors, former employees, disgruntled employees, and people who made bad choices without consulting with a real travel agent and were victims of hotels and ships they were not suited for.


We also receive continuous training in office, locally and regionally from the major tour operators, cruise lines, and destination reps. Justin French, recognized as as one of the Top 30 Travel Agents Under 30 by Vacation Agent Magazine, completed a comprehensive 25-hour Princess Cruises Course that earned him the highest status possible from Princess; and an even longer program with NCL. Jay French was selected as the Funjet First Top Travel Agent from a 4-state region by Funjet Vacations. Allie Bystrom writes regular articles in Bride's magazines. Steven Ryals represents us as the "Official Travel Provider" for Daivd's Bridal in Birmingham, AL. Karisma Resorts awarded ULTIMATE Diamond Level, achieved by less than travel agencies world-wide. The list goes on ... and we're proud of it!

We compete quite successfully against so-called internet giants. Our proud relationship with organizations such as FUNJET VACATIONS, PRINCESS CRUISES, IBEROSTAR RESORTS, NCL, EL DORADO RESORTS, EXCELLENCE, ROYAL CARIBBEAN, COUPLES, SANDALS, RIU, DISNEY and many others insures that we receive superior training, including on-site land and ship experience, advance notice of sales, and even exclusive sales. We keep our existing clients and prospects in-the-know through emails and our Daily Vacation Blog. And we encourage you to follow us on Facebook.

If you prefer booking on line there's no better place than on this site. Book your vacation or cruise here and we will pay you. You will see our staff at the best Wedding Shows. We excel with Honeymoon planning and Destination Weddings. We are very selective with our hiring practices. We accept only true experienced vacation specialists who posess superior knowledge and know how to deliver our level of customer service. We invite you review our staff bio's below. Need help? Call or visit us. Either way, you will have our complete backing and personal support. We include hotel and destination information with nearly every document package, no matter how you book. We care enough to contact every single client after their vacation to solicit their feedback.

There's a good reason we're called Ultimate. Find out for yourself. We love spoiling our clients!
