We are Norm & Tia Bailey and we live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. aka Seattle area.
We took our first cruise to properly ring in Y2K, not
knowing what to expect from all of the paranoia. As we expected, it was
non-event, but our cruise was a truly wonderful experience and got us hooked on the industry.
Within just a few follow-on cruises I knew that I wanted to be more than just a cruiser, and actually a part of the industry. I contacted someone I had met at the Captain's Table during a Mexican Riviera cruise, and joined their franchise in 2003. They became good friends and excellent mentors, and I owe all of our success to their efforts. Stew and Ilene Shore showed me the ropes and got me started. They are the former owners of Sherwood Park CruiseShipCenters.
They have since sold their franchise and are now enjoying retired life. Tia and I are now home-based agents, but still contracting with CruiseShipCenters. We consider Expedia CruiseShipCenters to be one of the best-developed organizations in the world. Support, training, and sales tools are all 5-star and we couldn't be happier.
We just completed our 21st cruise since that day pre-Y2K day that we boarded our first cruise ship in Los Angeles. And as of this writing, we already have three more cruises booked. That's how much we love cruising.
If you're a first-time cruiser or a sea dog growing barnacles, we would welcome the opportunity to help you plan your next dream vacation. The database at our disposal through our affiliation with Expedia CruiseShipCenters is extraordinary. Tens of thousands of cruises for you to choose from, and the easiest browsing structure in the industry.
Feel free to contact us anytime and you can get a sense for yourself how much we love cruising and want to help everyone we talk with have the same level of enjoyment that we've been having.
Norm & Tia
