Stress-Free Cruise Vacation

About Tropical Getaways Travel

I’m John and I’m your local cruise & all-inclusive vacation expert! ​For over 15 years I was in the world of IT. That means tons of late ​nights, long weekends, and “vacations” on call. My wife hounded ​me for a couple of years about a “real” vacation and she ​suggested a cruise.

From the moment we pulled out of port, I was hooked. But it ​wasn’t until I was standing on the front deck of the ship that I ​realized for the first time in years, I was really on vacation.

Since then, I’ve made it my mission to make sure that families, ​couples, and groups feel that same sense of relaxation by helping ​them plan amazing vacations.

No matter your budget or travel style, there is a cruise vacation ​that is right for you!

You deserve a vacation- so let me help you save time, energy ​(and maybe even a few bucks!) and start planning your escape!

Why Tropical Getaways Travel?

“I’d really like to book a vacation for my family, but there are just so many options to choose from- and who’s got time to look through hundreds of reviews?”

“I found a great price on a cruise, but when I started to book it, the price increased by over $500!”

“The last time I booked a cruise, I forgot to add transportation to and from the airport so we had to ride in this overpriced taxi- my family wasn’t happy.”

If any of these sound familiar, then maybe using a travel advisor for your next cruise vacation is the right call! I am solely focused on navigating a confusing marketplace ensuring that every detail is handled so that you don’t have to stress about any of the small details that can quickly ruin your vacation.

From my cruise in January 2023 aboard Royal Caribbean Symphony of the Seas. This is Crown Bay at St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands.

Cruise Vacations

How about endless ocean views, turquoise waters teeming with life, and feasts that'd make a seagull jealous.

Imagine waking up to the sound of gentle waves lapping against the ship, the sun painting the sky in hues of orange and pink. You grab a cup of joe and head out to your balcony, breathing in the fresh ocean air and feeling the salty spray on your face. Pure bliss.

In port, you can be taking in all of the local culture or zipling across a jungle- there's no end to the options! On a cruise vacation, you'll meet folks from all walks of life, each with their own story to tell, all united by the desire to soak up the good vibes.

I'll make it easy from leaving home right up until the time you come back.

You can wake up to the sound of the waves gently rolling into the white sand ​beach just outside your room. Or maybe you want to experience gourmet food ​and drink in a place that is unmatched in beauty and in service.

To ensure you have the best experience possible, I only recommend a carefully ​selected group of resorts that ensure that you’ll receive the highest quality that ​will have you coming back again and again.
